Thoughts on Having Another Boy


After finding out I was pregnant again, there was so much going on that I really didn't have any time to think about who the little person growing inside of me was. To be honest, if I wasn't so darn sick in the beginning I may have forgotten I was pregnant altogether🙈 Not that I wasn't happy or excited for another little baby, I just genuinely had zero time to think about it! I had a rambunctious toddler running a muck, my head buried in the toilet for a good few weeks & intense exhaustion that kept me pretty darn occupied. Once the nausea subsided and we had told everyone, the question was one I'd get asked all the time: "what do you think it is!?".

And honestly, I had no clue. I wasn't really in a rush to find out this time either! With Ryker, I needed to know ASAP. With baby #2, I didn't mind waiting until my 20 week anatomy scan. I suppose that's just the beginning of the differences between first baby & second baby😂 

As long as baby was healthy, Michael & I were totally content with whatever it may be! Of course, 98% of everyone we knew thought or hoped it was a girl. Boy oh boy, were they wrong😉

I went in earlyyyy for my 20 week ultrasound to beat the crowd and got in right away. After about a half hour of the technician poking my uterus and getting all the glamour shots of the babe, she asked if I'd like to know the gender. Well, duh! Of course. So she turns the monitor to face me & says "it's another boy", relatively matter-of-factly. And there it was on the screen so evident: his penis. Once it was confirmed, I had this wave of excitement wash over me. I was going to have another boy! Not just one mama's boy to love on me, I get two! How incredibly lucky am I?!

Part of me knew all along that he was in fact a he. I just felt it was right that Ryker was getting a little brother, he needs a little brother. Someone that he can play and rough house with when they're older. Someone he can climb, run and jump with. Someone to ride bikes with and get into trouble with. Now of course, he could have done all those things with a sister too but there's something special about a boy having a brother to be his forever best friend. The person he will get to walk through life with and share so many special memories with. Ryker deserves a brother, and this little bro is getting quite lucky in the big bro department as well.

I am so incredibly spoiled to get not one, not two, but three gentleman to love on me for the rest of my life! I am forever outnumbered but I wouldn't have it any other way. I can't wait for this little dude to join us in all of the crazy, chaotic, beautiful fun we have.

We love you so much already baby boy, we can't wait to meet you
