Monday morning Pete and I had a Doctors appointment and found out what kind of McBaby we are having…
It’s a boy!!!
Everyone welcome to the blog, MR. McBABY!!!
I am a little surprised how excited I am. I couldn’t sleep last night, mostly because I kept having horrible dreams about tsunami’s and trying to hold on to both children. I would love to have a video of what I was doing in my sleep because I woke up exhausted, with my arms hurting as though I actually had been fighting raging waters. But also I couldn’t sleep just because I am excited.
Honestly? Even more excited than when we found out Grace was a girl. Which is odd because while I have always wanted to have both, I realllyyy wanted a girl. But I think with Grace being our first it was all too much to really comprehend, boy or girl didn’t mean much because our minds were already so blown. Now that we have Grace I actually know how much you love your babies, I know what that feels like, and now I can imagine feeling that for a little boy and I cannot wait.
And my beautiful silly girl gets to have a little brother to be wild with.
And my kind and patient husband, who enables all of our dreams coming true, gets a boy to discuss wiener-y things with, or whatever it is that Dads bond with sons over.
And me? Well, Lord help me. I have no idea what to do with a boy. But I think that is part of what makes me so excited, a totally new adventure to expand my (and my little families) horizons.
When we were pregnant with Grace, and thought she was a boy, this is what I was planning for the nursery.
We partially executed the plan for our guest room, knowing that if we had a boy that would be his room.
While we did the wallpaper ceiling, I didn’t really do much other decorating in this room knowing that I would want to decorate the rest around whatever baby eventually came to live here.
And now I get to go wild!
Not only in here, but in our other guest room that I was also waiting to finish once we got a little further in our family planning.
Since this will be our only guest room now, we need to make it a bit more accommodating. The twin bed in here will go to the nursery and we will move the queen in here.
I cannot wait to show y’all the nursery and guest room plans (and finally finish up our house), and, in exchange, I am going to need all of you to tell this only child how to raise a boy and siblings who love each other.
Please and Thank You.
