I realize that besides sharing the “it’s a boy!” news, I haven’t said much about our little bun baking in the oven! One things for sure, it IS totally different the 2nd time around! I can not believe I’m more than halfway done right now, time is just speeding by. Our little Blueberry is already much more active than Darby was, I’ve gotten some good kicks and even wake up at night feeling him partying in there. Just about every time I listen to his heartbeat with the doppler, he gives it a big kick!
Darby is still getting used to the idea of a baby brother instead of baby sister. I went for a routine check up today with the OB and Darby was still telling Dr. Gonzalez that it was a baby sister! One thing is for sure though, she does understand there’s a baby in mommys belly and its so cute. The other day I was walking down the hall and she came running up to me and said “is that the baby in mommys belly?” and pointed to it. Then she said “I see”, lifted up my shirt, patted my belly and gave it a big kiss! It was adorable!
I know a lot of you are wondering – yes, we’ve picked a name! We actually had a girl name and boy name already picked out, first and middle, before we found out the gender! We don’t agree on much, Darby was all we could agree on the first time around, so its good she was a girl! This time, we were prepared either way. We haven’t completely decided WHEN we are telling everyone his name, personally I am pretty stuck on waiting until he is born! Eric goes through phases where he really wants to tell people, pretty much almost spills the beans but also agree’s with me at the same time! Really, as long as we know what we are going to be naming our son, in my opinion that’s what really matters. Sorry, but everyone else can wait! 🙂
We have picked out paint colors, bedding and are planning on just using Darby’s crib (it’s a little feminine, but we are just going to boy it up because its cheaper than buying a new one!). The plan is to get started soon with painting, getting Darby into a toddler bed, toys moved out of the “playroom” and fixing up the new nursery. With how quickly time is flying plus holidays coming up, friend and family weddings, potty training, travel and LIFE, if we don’t start soon, we will never get it all done!
The bedding was a steal (in the baby crib bedding world!) I got it on clearance for $45 bucks at Target! Normally you will spend at LEAST $150 if not more on bedding. Of course all stuff we really loved was like $400! We were happy/lucky to find something SO reasonably priced that we liked.
Our little Blueberry got his very first outfit from his Grammy Cookie and Grandad –
I just LOVE it! I seriously can not wait to put him in it! We aren’t huge fans of the cutesy clothes for boys with teddy bears and stuff, so this little sleeper was right up our alley. I wish I could find more in other colors! How cute would red or green be for Christmas? With a little Santa hat! What a perfect Christmas present we are getting this year!!
