Lily's News

Attention please.

Take your seats.

Please silence your cell phones and direct your eyes to center stage. (lights dimming)


Lily has something very important, she'd like to announce



Can you believe it? It feels so surreal, unreal, and real all at once?


He. Him.

A boy.

A son.

A little brother


One of each.


All these words are new to me and when I hear them out loud, it's like they're talking about someone else. To say I was shocked when I heard "it's a boy" is an understatement. Obviously, I know the choices are a boy or a girl when the u/s tech looks for gender parts, but when she said boy, she might as well said we're having an orangutan because it seems so foreign to me for us to have a boy after spending 2 years in girly-girl land. I even took an over the counter gender test a few weeks ago to confirm the same news, but still didn't believe it. We haven't told Lily the gender yet, but she has asked for a sister for 18 weeks straight, but changed it to brother consistently in the last week or so, before we even knew. It's crazy like she was psychic. I've talked to more moms of boys lately, feeling like a 1st time parent all over again hearing them talk about their son with this secret twinkle in their eyes about an unfound love I have no idea about. And it's pretty cool to be able to go through it all over again with everything feeling so new, when it's really the same because his little heart will be in our hands to mold like clay and he will think we hung the moon. I was so excited to be pregnant, but now I'm even more excited to meet HIM!!

life is good.

I am truly thrilled for you guys!!!!

Speaking from experience having a boy is soooo special... Equally as special as having a little princess! They keep you on your toes for sure as they are very active, but they LOVE so much too. You are gonna have a ball with both. I'm so happy for you all!

what a lucky little boy he already is...

to have a sister like Lily who will love on him and show him the beauties of the world...

a daddy like David to teach him how to be a really, really GOOD man...

and a mommy who will fall in love with him in the deepest way...her love for him will have no bounds.

oh...and a slew of grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, and cousins who can't wait to marinate him in love... and discover the awesome boy he will be.

So SO happy for ALL of us!!

love you so much.
xoxo

Hey there...I stumbled on your blog from Lindsey M. We've met a few times I think and I just had to comment on this one! We had our little boy in February and you said it just right...you're in for the biggest surprise with a little boy! We had been living in girly land too and I just couldn't imagine anything else...until our little Ross came. He's amazing and having one of each is so special. You're going to look at your family and get to say, "I have it ALL!" Congratulations:)

That is fantastic! Little boys are so much fun. How special is that to have one of each. Congratulations!
