Boy Mom?

When we found out we were pregnant again, we were ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to get “the feeling” of what we were having. With Arabella, I knew she was a girl. I just did! At 8 weeks pregnant, I was already buying little girls’ clothes and shoes. I never doubted I was having a girl even when our ultrasound tech thought she might be a boy at 13 weeks. With LJ, that “feeling” never came to me, not even slightly. I did think that baby#2 was probably going to be another girl just because I never saw myself having boys. I guess I was so used to being a “girl mom”, that I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to have a boy. My husband felt the same way. When our baby’s gender was revealed at the party, we were stunned. Josh was in legitimate shock for a couple minutes and of course, I was so excited, I cried! It’s funny looking back because I really don’t know why we were so shocked, after all, there was a 50/50 chance baby was a boy! Haha. It was a crazy night that night trying to wrap our heads around the fact that we were going to have a little boy! I’ve been prepping to be a boy mom ever since.
