In case you haven't heard by now, we found out last week we are having a BOY! I was in total shock and I think I will continue to be until the day he's born. It still feels weird every time I use the word "he" or "him." But it's also very exciting! Every day since our ultrasound I have gotten a little more excited about adding some blue to our family. It will be so different, and I feel like I know nothing about boys, but I'll figure it out. We all will.
I bought a few baby boy clothes from Gap.com the other day, as well as a bunch of used stuff from a friend, and while I will always love girls' clothes, buying collars and button-ups and hats is a fun change.
I also bought a new (used) baby bed this week so the prepare-for-baby stage is officially here. Over the next couple months we plan to turn Selah's room into the baby's room and move her in with her sister. My parents have graciously agreed to buy the girls bunk beds and they are PUMPED about that. Selah is promising me she is actually going to go to sleep in her own bed when this happens. I'm hopeful but I'll believe it when I see it.
And for those of you who are wondering, our sweet boy's name is going to be.......... Ezra Tyler. Ezra is a Biblical name we have always loved and Tyler, of course, is his daddy's name. I'm really excited to use another Biblical name for our third baby and one I think goes really well with our girls'.
Little Ezra is kicking like crazy in my belly now. It took 'til about 19 weeks for me to really feel him but now he never stops. And sweet Selah kisses him through my belly and talks to him all the time. It's not uncommon for her to walk in the room unprompted and give him a kiss and whisper, "I love you Ezra." :) I can't wait to watch my girls form a relationship with their brother.
I feel very blessed to have another healthy baby growing inside me. I also feel completely unprepared to raise an adventurous boy who I hope will be a Godly and respectful man. But I am excited about the challenge!
