A HUGE apology first and foremost. I completely posted this teaser Instagram photo and then almost a whole week later, I’m finally getting around to sharing the gender! To say I’ve been lazy on the blog lately is a HUGE understatement. I could write out a million excuses about how tired I am and ya-da-ya-da-ya, but I know half of you have already stopped reading this silly little intro and are already to the video anyways, so I’ll just shut up now!
But seriously, I’m sorry for being a jerk!
And we seriously could not be more excited to add another sweet little princess to our family. I have to admit, I was almost relieved when the ultrasound tech told us it was a girl. Leading up to last Wednesday, Alea made it very clear that she did not want a baby brother and that it had to be a baby sister. I was a little nervous, I gotta say. But after we got the “money shot” and officially found out it was a little sister for Alea, I immediately started crying tears of joy! Such a happy moment!
And then to see the excitement of her finding out she really was getting a sister? Nothing beats that!
We’re already talking names and Cory so lovingly gave my entire list of a girl names that I’ve been holding onto since we started our journey with fertility a big fat never gonna happen. Soooo we’re back to the drawing board, but I’ll tell you that we do have one on our list that I’ve become especially fond of. And just so I’m not even more of a tease, we’ll probably be keeping our official chosen name a secret until she’s born! So, I’ll apologize in advance for that one!
Needless to say, the nursery planning, baby gear registering, and nesting is starting in full force now that we know her gender! I may or may not have washed all of Alea’s baby clothes from newborn to nine months this past weekend… not gonna lie! And yes, I kept everything! (Even through 5 moves!)
So, did you guess? Was your guess right?
What advice do you have for me as we get ready for baby number two?
