We're having a SON! It's funny even saying that word. We "tried" for a boy, but given our history I wasn't sure we had any hope. Turns out the old wives tales work! ;)
Lyla's been rooting for a boy for a while now and constantly comes up with names we could give "him". After finding out this morning we decided to do a mini gender reveal for the girls tonight, so Ryan brought home two cupcakes filled with blue frosting. Lyla's reaction when she saw the blue was priceless - pure excitement! Sis was mostly interested in just eating her cupcake. ;)
I'm still a little bit in awe, and can't seem to get this smile off my face. What a relief it always is to have a perfectly healthy ultrasound, and to find out we're adding a boy to the crew?! Amazing.
Having a boy is a newer dream for me, I kind of always just thought of girls when I thought of my future children. But sometime after Evie it dawned on me what a privilege it would be to raise a good man. The world could use a few more of those.
Two of the very best girls, and now a boy! I can't even express the excitement and gratitude flowing through my veins right now. Can't wait for July!!
Here are some pics of the little guy and our cupcake party! :)
