It's a....

BOY!

So, I was totally wrong. I have been wrong with both babies so far so next time I will know it is the opposite of whatever I think it is! I have to admit to a little disappointment. But later as I thought about it, I reminded myself that he looks healthy and all his parts are in place and that is the most important thing. I could have been coming home from that appointment because they saw a potential problem. I should have been coming home rejoicing that he looks healthy, is on track developmentally and icing on the cake should have been that they were able to see the sex and now I will have two boys!

I had to change my attitude and my way of thinking. I have to do that a lot! And I will be returning all the baby girl clothes I bought! I will have to look through Sage's stuff and see what sizes and seasons I need to fill in.

Now, we have the difficulty of deciding on a name. We had such a hard time with Sage. I don't ask for peoples opinions because frankly, I don't care. It is my kid and you won't say one mean thing about his name after he is here but you might before he is born.

Sage is in a wierd stage of sometimes needing a morning nap and sometimes not. Today I laid him down at 9 and he still isn't asleep at 10. He isn't crying more just whining, yelling sometimes. Crazy kid.

Random clothing thoughts: I have discovered why I dont' like my clothes. It is because I buy cheap clothes. I look at cute shirts for $20 and then see long sleeve t-shirts that are 2 for $20 and will buy those. Therefore, I don't have that many dress up clothes and always look/feel like a slob. And having been nursing/pregnant, that makes me buy cheap clothes because I know that it is only a phase and if I am not nursing at this time next year, I will need a smaller size. It is such a hard place to be in life! Hopefully, someday, we will have some money that I can buy decent clothes and will be done with childbearing and can buy clothes that will last more than 2 years!

  1. Oh my gosh I do the exact same thing. We walked to Old Navy yesterday and I saw this ADORABLE fitted jacket in the Athletic part. It was 24.95 and I thought that was too expensive, so I looked at the cheaper stuff...but then it's like, if you're going to wear it, you might as well get the more expensive stuff! :) We both have to watch the pennies. It is kind of a fun challenge though! There were some cute mittens I wanted to get for Lu, but they were $4 and I thought I could get them cheaper on ebay! I am so bad! The same for a winter coat. I am getting her 2t so it will fit for awhile. They have some CUTE brand new Gap ones on ebay. I love ebay! OK so I'll stop.

    I know what you mean about hte name thing. We had people actually make fun of her name...one person who named her kid after a piece of cheese. So I didn't put much stock in it. :)

    We aren't going to share next time either. YOu're right, once the baby is there, no one is going to say anything.
