it's a...

It was 8 months before we got pregnant with Ember that I told Jeffree one day, "We're having a girl first."  He asked why.  My response was, "I don't know why, I just know that's what we're having."  We picked out her name that same month.  Ember Belle.  We just knew.  Once I got pregnant, I was less certain.  What if I'd been wrong?  But the ultra sound confirmed what I had felt long ago.  It was a beautiful, perfect little baby girl.

I was pretty sure we'd have another girl.  I think I told Jeff that when little e was only a few months old.  Since then I've rarely thought anything different.  When we finally got pregnant, I second guessed my intuition, but I'd been right with little e, so why wouldn't I be right with this one?

Jeffree and I were talking one night and I asked him, if it was a boy, what would we name him?  And I LOVED the name he told me.  That was the first time I could actually imagine having a little boy.  But I still entertained the idea of having a little girl for our sweet e to play with and was hoping today's ultra sound would confirm that.

Boy was I wrong.

So I've thrown motherly intuition out the window.  We're having a little man.  Wowzers.  I won't even know what to do with a boy around the house.

We are pleased as punch, and Jeffree said I was glowing or beaming or something like that.  I'm pretty excited for him to get his little boy.  I know he loves his e girl, but he needs another man around the house.

disclaimer: i refuse to flaunt my child's man parts to the world.  the only one who cares is his daddy, since "it takes a man to make a man"

Here's to baby number two - I'm sure he'll shake things up quite a bit around here.  And we'll love it. 

Bring on the blue!


  1. Boys are awesome!!!! Theyre so laid back and easy...ive become a total boy mama...youll love it

  2. Congrats! I love having one of each. :)

  3. That's super exciting for you! I already have one and have another on the way- and I can definitely say that boys are a whole handful of busyness but I sure love being a mom to my little boy- you'll have tons of fun and I am sure having one of each will be quite the fun adventure too! Congratulations!

  4. Congrats!!! Don't worry, I was SURE ours was a boy this time and was wrong. There must be a bad case of motherly mis-intuition going around ;) I can't wait to hear his name

    1. Haha! I know, I thought of you when I saw the results. Maybe someone mixed up our orders!

  5. Lori,
    I am so excited for you. My cousin just had the same thing happened. I am not even going to try and guess. So excited for you!!!
