Although I practically had to twist The Husband's arm into finding out the sex of Baby M2, we are both SO ecstatic that we did! Admittedly, we were both a little nervous driving to the boutique ultrasound place. We couldn't help but laugh at ourselves! Weren't we seasoned pros by now? We were JUST in the same place a little under two years ago!
So, why did we have butterflies and why were our palms sweaty?
Not once did it cross my mind that M2 may not cooperate. We had no trouble finding out C's gender but learned quickly that might not be the case with M2. Already, this one has a mind of it's own! For the first 10 minutes (which felt like an eternity, by the way) M2 had his little legs crossed at the ankles in front of the goods. Speaking of legs, woooh are they long ones! It took a little coercion and a lot of bouncing around on my belly before we got him to give up the goods.
And as soon as he did, I knew it. I even said, "I SAW IT," out loud and I knew the tech had, too. Asking "are you ready?" We both replied in unison, "YES!" And that's when she broke the news- we would be having another little boy!
Needless to say I've been feeling extra blessed. By now I'm sure you all know how much I adore being a "Boy Mama" and I cannot wait to have another sweet little gentleman to love all over! It just melts my heart to think of Carter and his little brother growing up, becoming the best of friends, sharing a room, a team, hobbies and love for all things dirty and slimy.
Two sweet boys. I can't help but wonder if this little boy will have Carter's blonde curls and ice-blue eyes. We already know he'll have his ears and hopefully, like Carter, he'll grow into them by the time he's a year old!
I know what you're thinking. "Do we have a name yet?" And the answer is no. C'mon, Loyals. If you know me at all, you know that it took FOREVER to decide on Carter's name, mostly because The Husband is the pickiest man on earth. You see, I've already chosen M2's name and I am so in love with it, I cannot wait to share it with you. The only pickle? I need to get The Husband on board first.
So, say a few prayers for me, couldya? I need all the help I can get! ;)
Happy Friday, Loyals! Have a great weekend!
Two sweet boys. M2, we cannot wait to meet you in June!
