Brother Bear

Georgia Grace has some extra special news to share...
a baby BROTHER is on the way!!!
Yesterday we went for our anatomy scan ultrasound at the 17 week mark which is exactly when we went with Georgia Grace. We didn't do the blood test with her and we opted to not do it again this time-just a personal preference :)
Let me begin by saying this pregnancy has been different. It started out feeling the same but took a turn at the end of the first trimester. Marcus says he knew confidently it was a boy the day I ordered a steak in a restaurant. Of our 11 years of dating and almost 5 years of marriage he has never once known me to order a steak. Most days I have bouts of queasiness, nausea and gagging. I rarely vomit but I do everything but that. And that burst of energy you are suppose to get in the 2nd trimester? Never happened ha!
So needless to say we weren't shocked by the news but oh so ecstatic! The first time around we waited to find out at the same time as family and friends during our gender reveal party but this time we opted to find out together, just the two of us. When the tech said, "Congratulations, it's a.....boy!" we both just cried. It was one of my favorite moments. I always wanted to give my husband a son and experience the mother-son relationship.
Sticking with the theme of the season we kept things simple and came home to tell family the news. We wrapped a blue baby outfit in a gift bag and Georgia Grace opened the gift in front of everyone. Just for fun we had them write "It's a Boy" or "It's a Girl" on a blue or pink paint swatch our paint store gave us. Considering we are in the middle of updating our new house we thought that would be a neat thing to do. Blue won with a landslide :)
Right now we're just letting it sink in that we are having a son. We have a short list of names but nothing for sure yet.

And posts about our big girl's birthday coming soon! We've been crazy busy this week so those will come after we get back from the beach!

Happy Halloween and Happy wedding weekend James and Ashley!

  1. Yay!!! What a cute little boy he will be! So excited for y'all! Love that you found out just the two of you. Nick and I did that with Kennedy and plan on doing it again with this baby too. I think it's a special moment between husband and wife!
