It's A.....


First of all, let's just take a moment to talk about how hard it is to be home alone with the test results in an envelope for NINE HOURS and not even peek. I deserve a medal, but I will settle for ice cream. 

I spent all day trying to figure out if I knew what the baby was. From the beginning, I've felt like it was a boy, but at the same time, I have no idea what either "feels" like. Plus. I was so sure that it's a boy, that it made me think that meant it was going to be a girl. I'm weird, I know. 

Anyway, the second Chris got home he was bombarded with demands of opening the envelope immediately. He said he needed a glass of water first, I said this was no time to think of silly things like hydration. 

Sometimes you're just too excited to look at the camera, am I right? 


Little baby Jacobs is a BOY! Chris and I are both beyond thrilled, and it's so exciting to finally be able to call him him and he and think about him in terms of an actual person--and, of course, the types of clothes I will buy him and what his nursery will look like. 

My adventure loving heart is so excited to add a little boy to the tribe. Bring on the messy and exploring and learning things that I have zero idea about. Life is good.

  6. Sooooo exciting!! Let the nursery planning and clothes buying commence :) He will be so loved! And you might deserve ice cream every night for the rest of the month for waiting like that. Wait, I know - ice cream one night, Chic-fil-A the next. And just keep alternating.

  12. Congrats on a boy! I remember reading your post and thinking I would not have been able to handle the envelope just sitting there. I would be the person that would stare at it and drive myself nuts - I would've had to take a 9 hour nap or leave the house so I couldn't be tempted. You have some like jedi willpower.
