Wow. I kinda knew.. but really, I didn’t. I was shocked. And then, I was surprised at just how excited I could be over another child in my life.
I guess that happens when you have another child. Something changes in you… all over again.
We had the ultrasound yesterday. And we found out that our next one is a little man. Blue and Green and Orange. Trucks and Frogs. And we are both very excited about it.
No names yet. We hadn’t talked about any before hand, because we didn’t want to argue over a girl name if we weren’t going to have one.. so now, we have some work to do! Hm… This is fun.
Here are some pics of our little guy. Here is his little profile:
And his little hands.
And… his.. HA.. It’s definitely a boy.. I’ll say that.
And we announced it on facebook just how we announced the pregnancy – with Lucy and a sign.
Isn’t that girl so adorable.
I’m really glad that #2 is a boy. Lucy gets to keep on being our one and only princess… She also won’t have to share as many toys. I know she’s going to be a great big sister.
Couple of milestones that Lucy hit that are HUGE for me…
A couple of days ago I asked her “Lucy, can you bring me my phone?” And she did. She got up, found my phone (given, it was just on the table) and she brought it to me without asking to play any games.
GOOD GIRL. Oooo, happy Mama!
And then, last night, I was kinda tidying the living room. Lucy was playing with some toys and I said, “Ok, Lucy, it’s time to go to bed. Time to go Night Night.”
Know what she did?
Put all the toys that she was playing with up in her toy bin. It wasn’t a whole lot of toys, but it took her at least 3 trips.
And I didn’t even ask.
She’s 20 months old.
Be still my heart.
Then I told her to go give Daddy “night night sugar”. That’s part of our routine. She ran down the hall to find Daddy in our bedroom and she puckers up about 2 yards before she gets to you.
Gosh she’s so sweet.
And I also found out.. we say “gosh” too much.
Lucy also says it.
Here we go. Toddlerhood.
Today has been a great day. A great week really.
I’m going through a BUNCH of clothes. I mean.. ALL of Lucy’s clothes. I’m thinking about keeping 1 bag of her clothes. My absolute favorite outfits. The rest I’m either giving away or selling. If you know someone who would want a bag of hand-me-downs, (Girl of course), then let me know. I’ll have sizes from Newborn to 18 Months. I’d prefer to give the 0-3month to one, and 3-6 to another, but I’ll give them to whoever needs them.
Also – if you are interested in buying some – let me know too. I’m putting the nicest ones up for sale.
And I haven’t been blogging, because I’ve been scrapbooking. I’m ALLLMOST done with Lucy’s. Except for (of course) Months 21-24.
And I haven’t decided yet how I’m going to do the swing picture. I’m not sure If I want Lucy in Jr’s or not… Might do some of both. I know I’m going to stop with the monthly ones when Lucy turns 2. Then I’ll do probably every 6 months and then a year. It’ll be fun posing a 1 year old and a 3 year old. I’m looking forward to that already…
Hope your weekend is FABULOUS.
PS – We leave for vacation in 3 weeks! Ahh!!
