This is a little late coming, but we are going to have a baby boy! I have an ultrasound photo where we can CLEARLY see this, but since I don’t really want that on the internet I just show you this cute one of him sucking his thumb!
Our baby’s name is Oliver. There’s a story that goes along with how he got his name but I might wait to share that since I’m going to tell family and friends first. But suffice it to say that he picked the name out himself!
I know I said I wanted a girl, but I’m actually really happy that he’s a boy! I can’t really explain it but now that we have a name for him, it feels like he couldn’t really be anyone else. He’s exactly who he’s supposed to be. Up until 21 weeks I hadn’t felt him move much, but now I’m feeling kicks everyday! Before I was pregnant, the idea of having a human growing on the inside of me kind of freaked me out and I thought it would feel really weird. But it is actually really awesome! I love seeing and feeling him kick.
The week we found out his gender, Munro and I went to Target to pick out some baby clothes. Munro picked out the NASA onesie (he’s really into space stuff). I also checked out Babies”R”Us this week and got him this adorable velour sweat suit. Oh man. Baby boy clothes are so freakin’ cute! I could literally spend hundreds of dollars. Somehow, I have managed to restrain myself and have only bought a few things. By the way, I’m also buying 3 month sizes, rather than newborn. All the babies in my family were over 9 pounds and I’m expecting that he will be tall since I’m 5’9″ and Munro is 6′. Most newborn sizes say they only go up to 8 pounds.
Also, you may be wondering about that pink baby blanket I was making. Well, I did finish it yesterday and I love how it turned out! However, I won’t get to use it for a while. Which is totally okay, since I have the rainbow one I plan to give to Oliver (I just can’t bring myself to let him use the pink one lol). When I have my baby girl, at least I will have a blanket already made for her. Next up, I’m going to make Oliver some crocheted hats. I saw this really cute pattern on Ravelry for a penguin hat!
Here is the finished ombré pink blanket:
I could just stare at these colors for hours! Haha!
