nineteen weeks: bump & gender reveal!


it's true!  baby #2 is a BOY!  it was very obvious & there is absolutely no question parker is gonna have a little brother!!


...yeah, not at all shy.  hehe.
here's the rest of the nineteen week info!


looks like we're gonna have another little boy around here!!  we could not be more excited!

sam & i both saw the little boy parts right off the bat & even though the technician didn't confirm because she was trying to leave us in suspense & whatever we saw very well could have been a blob of who-knows-what, i spent the rest of our ultrasound knowing it was a little boy.  i just knew the minute i saw him.  and then when she really honed in on the goods, i just started crying with happiness.  it was another active, healthy, little BOY in there.

i'm gonna write a post with brutal honesty on how i feel about having another boy but for now, let me just say i am SO excited to be the mom of two boys.  i am excited for parker to have a little brother & i can't wait to watch them plot mischief together, play cars & sports together & grow up together.  i can't wait for our little family to become a little family of four!

another week has come & gone & it's crazy to think next week i'll be writing about how we're halfway through this thing.  although i do have to say the first half is by far the easier {and shorter!} half, so i'm not sure it actually counts.  and this pregnancy hasn't left me with much to complain about so far other than feeling uncomfortable in my normal clothes but whattyagonnado?  and how much does that really matter when i basically live in either workout clothes or pajamas anyways?

but as the bump grows, i am gonna try & make an effort to be a stylish little prego on work days & sundays & maybe even the occasional saturday out with the family.  we'll see how that works out for me.

and lastly, i can't wait to share how our little gender reveal party with sam's family went.  i know it was a little tortuous to keep this secret a few extra days from so many of you but it was totally worth it to see our family's reaction in person.  and?  we all got to enjoy some freaking delicious cupcakes so none of them were complaining!

have a great weekend everyone!

  61. I'm super late but OMG you're having another boy! Must be totally awesome. The honey & I were discussing last night about how we'd feel if we only have boys. Of course, he was all for it...even I for a little while but then I thought...who am I going to dress up in cute little pink outfits? Whatever the outcome, I'll just be thankful that they are healthy.

    I'm super excited for you! This means more cute photos filled with more love (yes I can totally feel the love in the photos)! AHHHH I can't wait!

  69. I am so, so super excited for you. I know I have my "perfect" girl/boy twins and I couldn't wish for anything else...but...the only reason I would want another is to at least allow one of my babes to be able to experience that same-sex sibling bond. It is a bond like no other will share. I look at Mandey's boys and my heart aches. My kids will never have that bond, ya know? Sure, they will always love each other, and always get along, but there is just something special about brothers, and/or sisters. I am teh middle of three sisters, and it's just awesome! I would have loved to have had a brother but love my sisters! You are going to have such an amazing family and I'm so excited for you.
