Oh Boysies

This happened today:


I am, seriously, IN SHOCK.  I am in a happy shock, a surreal daze, yes, but SHOCK nonetheless.  I would have seriously staked my life on the fact I was having a girl.  And, like, I've mentioned on my blog before, I wanted a boy, but was so sure it was a girl!  This pregnancy has completely mimicked the symptoms of my girl pregnancies, and was nothing like when I was prego with Cade!  My sore boobies and morning sickness LIED TO ME.  And I am so happy about it!

I had been planning this elective ultrasound for weeks, and never told Brandon about it - I almost slipped up and told him a gajillion times, but I actually managed to keep the secret!  So I got the ultrasound done today, and my mom came with me, and when I was told I was having a boy, I sort of just stared at the ultrasound tech and my jaw opened real wide and I blinked, slowly, like three times, and...well...that as it.  My big reaction!  But I was just so shocked!  Once it wore off a bit, I had some time to grin and yelp.  But...it took a few minutes.  :)

So Brandon was able to come home from work to some yummy cupcakes waiting for him on the counter...and he had no idea I'd even gotten the ultrasound in the first place!  Brandon is beyond thrilled too - he was very much hoping for another little son.

So, now onto seriously considering names.  So happy I get to squeeze my little man chicken in about 5 1/2 months(ish) time!!!

I hope you saved lots of baby boy things! :)
My students LOVE losing a tooth at school because they get to go to the nurse and get this tiny plastic treasure chest to put their tooth in and show off to all their friends... just wait for it!

So cool! Congrats :)
At our ultrasound appt we told the tech we didnt want to know, but she kept saying "he". When I asked if she knew what it was she seemed to be trying to mask it up that she kept saying he...it ruined it I think. We get the vibe boy thanks to her. She could have said, "the baby" "it" So I will be surprised if it is a girl. But we are happy to have either one. That would be fun for the three new babies though-all boys!!!
