BOY oh BOY, we are BLESSED!

 

We had the loveliest, luckiest, most blessed weekend to beat all weekends!

First of all, the weather was GORGEOUS. Very happy to be seeing more and more of those warm, sunny days in between all the icky ones…

Then our dear UK Wildcats won all weekend and ended the weekend with the big win at the SEC tournament. WOO-HOO!!

My sweet and patient brother-in-law stood in line all day on Friday to score both he and us a new iPad2 =) {Which we’re loving!}

And we were mucho MUCHO lucky enough to have both of our immediate families come in from hundreds of miles away just to be with us as we found out we are having a BOY this August.

My heart could burst!

{Also, a random tid-bit only I could get excited over… this just happens to be my 300th blog post AND we hit 900 followers this morning. How ironic and super cool?!}

The two soon-to-be parents on the morning of the big gender ultrasound:

Our tech savvy families spending some “quality” time together on Friday night… everyone either has an iPad or a laptop! I put down my iPhone just to pick up the Canon and snap this shot. We are such DORKS! ;)

Saturday morning, after a big family breakfast at our house, we headed to “Baby Belly” for the gender ultrasound. I LOVED this place and would definitely recommend it to others in the Lexington area. So serene and ultra nice.

The big moment when the tears couldn’t be held back any longer:

WE’RE HAVING A BOY!!!!

Don’t mind this momma’s extra chins in these shots….

Look at our little alien angel in 4-D!!

They may kill me for this next shot… but hey, Chad was the one taking the pictures!!

We felt so loved to have both sides of the baby’s grandparents there as well as Nick’s brother and my sister. We are so appreciative for them!

With only about 30 minutes between the end of our appointment and the beginning of the UK game, my mom, mother-in-law and I hit just one baby store.

I only bought the sunglasses and a couple bibs… ya think the grandmother’s will be spoiling much?!

I just melt over each and every one of these little outfits. I cannot imagine how much sweeter they will be with my little bundle of love actually wearing one♥ I am going to be a puddle of mush on the floor with all the adorableness!!

and here we are at 16 weeks:

We should be in full bloom just in time for spring!

  7. I wish I had a pic from the moment I found out we were having a boy. Such a sweet shot.

    I am so excited you are having a boy. I seriously live having a boy.

    A mom tip on boy goodies: purchase the Hanna Andresson zip sleepers. They are amazing and we love any sleepers without feet because our little guy is tall and out grows the feet ones!

  45. When the ultrasound lady told us we were having a boy, Shawn and I both cheered. She asked us if that was what we had ordered, and we both just looked at her, dumbfounded. "No. We just ordered a healthy baby," I blubbered through my tears. I'm sure she thought we were totally off our rockers, but it's my memory. :)

  49. I stumbled across your "secret blog" and loved reading it and connecting up with your "real blog". It was neat to read your story of TTC. My husband and I started TTC 3 months ago and I found myself in your shoes the first few months but realized this of all things isn't in my control. Thanks for the reassuring posts that it will happen when the time is right! Congrats and best of luck!

I just shared my thoughts, I'd love to hear you share yours! {Besides, I'm tired of listening to the voices in my head.} I kid, I kid... ;)
