Pink or Blue?
Today we had my sonogram to find out if we were having a baby girl or a baby boy. Brandon and Brooke went with me and of course I was nervous but yet very excited! I was just hoping that the baby would cooperate and they would be able to see everything needed and then be able to tell us the exciting news.
I thought before I went that I might need to drink a coke so that the baby would be active but once the sonogram began I quickly realized it was a good thing I didn’t. This little baby was so active that she had hard time keeping up with it. The baby would toss, turn, flip, stretch out then curl up in a ball.
After sometime she had me roll on each side and sit up to see if we could get the baby to move to a better position. Well, baby wasn’t cooperating. But we did find out the sex. She decided to tell Brooke, “guess what, you are having a baby BROTHER!” I couldn’t believe it. Of course we would of been happy with whatever God had intended for our family but both Brandon and I really wanted a little boy. We both did guess girl thought before going in.
My eyes filled up with tears because of the joy and happiness of knowing there is a healthy baby boy growing and will be part of our family. Because he was so wiggly, I do have to go back for another sonogram because they could not get a good picture of his heart, little stinker!
After my appointment, we went to a few stores to look at baby boy stuff. It is definitely weird looking at boy stuff. I am so used to girl things, but it was very fun and exciting. After shopping we met up with our parents at Olive Garden for dinner. I had us and them wear a pink or blue shirt depending n what they thought it was. Brandon, Brooke and I had on pink whereas my mom, Grandma and Papa had on blue. The table was divided half and half. I told them I had to go back next week because baby wasn’t cooperating and showed them my appointment card. Grandma wasn’t too sure is she should believe me or not so I put the card in my purse and then said “but we did find this out” and I held up a onesie that said little brother.
They were all so very excited just as we are! We can’t wait to meet this little guy and for Brooke to have a little brother. She is going to be a great big sister and I look forward to all the memories we get to make as a family of 4.
