Frogs and Snails and Puppy-Dogs' Tails

That's what Little Boys are made of.
Trust me I have had to ask that question to a few people.  I think I am STILL in shock.
All my life it's been girls girl girls.  Two sisters, Nine girl cousins, I lived and breathed girls.
I still don't think it has set in.  But yes..........
We are so excited.  I keep thinking football and basketball games (that's hoping he has Mommy's athletic ability), getting dirty, his first truck, teaching him to pee outside (kidding), tractors and all that other fun stuff that boys do!

So funny story about last night.  Stella was horrible at the doctor's office.  Ugh, I don't even want to get started.  Let's just say that she made sure the whole doctor's office knew she was there.  So we all walk into the ultrasound room.  I get up on the table.  Stella is looking around, everything is fine.  The lady asks if we are going to find out and I said yes.  So she is looking around doing her thing.  Then she says, "It's a boy!" and no joke, without any hesitation Stella bursts into tears.  OMG - it' was hilarious.  We all started laughing and the tech said, "Wow, she does NOT want a brother."  lol.  She cried and cried and Josh had to finally take her back to the waiting room, but man we laughed and laughed.

So just in case there are any of you out there who are still thinking NO WAY (cough Kim cough) here's the proof.  Warning - the following picture is R Rated.  lol.
Ha, yep, that looks like a boy to me!!  My son is packin'.  Kidding.
And just a few more because I think it's amazing how much you can see.
Hand in front of face kind of waving.
I think he's going to be tall!  Look at that spine!!

So now that name you were all wondering about.
Henry George Walter
Henry is my Mom's maiden name and George is my husband's Grandpa's name and my late Great Grandpa's name.

We are over the moon excited and like I said, still in shock.  We have tons of painting to do and boy clothes to buy.  And if anyone finds a coupon for those little PeePee TeePees, pass them on to me.  : )

I LOVE THE NAME!!!! We were just talking about that when your dad stopped by. So excited you are going to get to experience the whole boy thing. I think the bond between a mom and her little boy is the cutest thing ever. Congratulations!!

And I have to confess...I have no idea what I'm looking at in any of those ultrasound pictures besides the last one.

Christine said...

Congratulations! I was intimidated when I first learned we were having a boy b/c I'm not much of a guy's gal (not into sports or outdoorsy stuff). BUT... the idea of a little boy has really grown on me and I can't wait to meet our little guy.

Cassie said...

I was feeling like you after I had Ty. I just had a sister so I didn' t know what it would be like to have more boys than girls in a house. You'll pick up on the boy thing just like you picked up on the mom thing! I think his name is cute! I love when people carry names through generations.
