Before we get to the meat of this post, no, the little nugget was not a surprise. I mean, he was, in some ways, but we won't get into those details.
What was a surprise, though, was our ultrasound appointment last week, when we found out that the baby is a boy!!! From the very beginning, Brandon and I both felt like it was a girl. And for a long time, I didn't have a preference on what we were having (still don't, by the way), but after feeling so strongly that it was a girl for long, it was definitely a shock to find out that we're having a boy. When we went shopping after the appointment, it was almost weird to be looking at boy things and not girl things. It still is sort of weird, to be honest. But we are extremely excited to have this little boy in our lives!
We just got home from California (post on that coming later), and baby is just as excited to be out of the car as I am. He is moving around so much! Which is probably an early sign of what he'll be like as a child...wildly energetic, just like his dad.
Hope everyone has had a fantastic Memorial Day/weekend, remembering those we've lost, and spending much needed time with family!
