Oh my patience.

I usually have lots of patience. I taught high school. I had to have lots of patience. And I do. But when it comes to babies, not so much.

I called and made a last minute appointment for an early ultrasound at the same place we went when I was pregnant with Blair. I only had another week to wait to find out what we were having, but my doctor’s machine is so old, I decided to go ahead and get a good ultrasound with some good pictures! I might as well since I had one with Blair. We want everything to be fair, right?!

So… we had to wait a few minutes for the sweet baby to stop sleeping like big sister – face down and booty to the sky – to find out that we’re having…

a boy!!

We are thrilled. I would have been thrilled with another girl too, but I hope that this one will be my buddy. Blair pretty much gives me the cold shoulder when daddy’s around.

Brad and I haven’t even discussed names at all. We didn’t talk names with Blair until we knew she was a girl. So that part is still to come. I hope naming our little boy will be as easy as naming Blair. I still adore her name, and it just came up out of the blue one day while I was looking through a name book. It was the first one I had suggested that Brad liked, and we got stuck on it. We’re so glad we did!

I guess I’ll spare the poor child and not show everyone his little boy parts, but here’s a great profile shot of our little one!

My very first blog post included a picture just like this of Blair. How time flies.
