In case you were wondering… the results are in and we are beyond thrilled with the news: IT’S A BOY!!!
We found out on December 10th… but the truth is I always knew it was a boy. Before I knew I was pregnant I had ‘a moment’… I don’t even remember where I was but the cutest boy was playing and ran in front of me… he had the blondest, straightest hair that was falling into his eyes and he looked up at me for a split second as he ran by. Suddenly I had the strongest feeling that I was pregnant and it was a boy. It was only an instant but I was chalk full to the brim with warm fuzzies, not to mention the sudden lump in my throat. It was a moment I couldn’t ignore as I stood there stunned for a second.
I found out a week later that, yes, in fact I was pregnant. (Eeeeeeek!) I could have found out what the sex was weeks and weeks ago but I was scared. I was scared that that feeling and that moment wasn’t real and I didn’t want to be wrong. I thought each of my girls was a boy. I even bought a striped sweater for a baby boy in the early stages of being pregnant with Lola… so much for my mother’s intuition. ; ) But this time it was different. So you can imagine the tears that filled my eyes when the nurse said “It’s a boy!” I looked over at Collin and his eyes were all sparkly too. The nurse double checked a couple times, knowing that we have three girls and this news was exciting. “Yep, that’s a weiner.” Laughing through the tears I responded, “I don’t know what to do with that.”
We are so thrilled, nervous… 4 kids??!!! Anxious. Peaceful thinking about him. Did I mention scared? haha! But overall blessed beyond belief.
The girls have called him a boy since the beginning so this was no big news to them. Clearly they knew something we didn’t.
22 weeks down…! 18 to go.
Here I go on this journey of motherhood and life… trusting that God will show me the way. xo, Lizzy
