Girl! Sorry to keep some of you hanging. Yep, Lucy Paige is cooking away in my tummy. At least that's what they tell us. We invited our families over for the reveal party. Jeff's parents thought it was going to be a boy, and my parents thought it was going to be a girl. The only reason my mom was 97% sure it was going to be a girl is because she analyzed everything I said from the time of my ultrasound until the reveal party!
So, I've been out to buy some pink things. It's so crazy looking at girl clothes. I had a hard time looking at boy stuff when I was pregnant with Graham because I didn't think any of it was cute. And now I am so boy minded that I think all the girls clothes are ridiculous looking. But they're growing on me. I mean, I love girly things, but some of the stuff out there is just over the top! I think I'm just too picky when it comes to clothes. I need something sweet, vintage, cool, classy, and soft. Is that too much to ask for? :) Sweet Lucy, I hope you're not a picky as your mother!
Secrets, secrets are no fun. Secrets, secrets hurt someone. You know who that someone is? Me! I've got a secret, and I can't tell anyone. We were supposed to have an ultrasound this Monday to find out our baby's gender, but I ended up having it a week early. We had a "reveal" party planned for our families after the doctor's appointment on Monday. We were able to move the party to Sunday, but that still means I have to wait 5 days to share the secret. It's killing me. I don't like to keep secrets. I don't know how people keep it a secret from everyone else until the baby's birth. But since we planned this party, I feel like we have to follow through and at least keep it a secret for a few days. I can do it...just one more day to go. So do you think it's going to be a boy or a girl? A boy would be fun because Graham would have a little brother close in age, and they would always be best friends, right? Plus, I already have stuff for a boy. And I know what it's like to be a mom to a boy...and I love being a mom to a boy! But a girl would also be fun. I like to do fun, girly things sometimes, and it would be great to have a little girl around to teach how to paint her toenails and how to cook. Preferably not at the same time. Anyway, I'll let you know once the word is out. You can leave a comment and let me know what your guess is, because I know people feel so proud of themselves when they guess the right gender. I know I sure get excited when I've guessed correctly!
So, I've started doing guest blogging on my dear friend Lydia's blog. She has an amazing business where she personalizes stationery, invitations, announcements and more. She made Graham's birth announcements, and she is doing the invitations for my sister's wedding that is coming up in just 8 weeks. You have to check out her beautiful work! And you can stop by there every Friday for a post from me.
Today I asked G for a kiss, and he came up to me and landed a big wet one on my lips. I turned around to go into another room, and he ran up behind me saying, "The baby!" I bent down, he lifted up my shirt, and gave a big kiss to the baby. In that moment I forgot about the multiple toys he took away from a kid today, the several times he threw himself on the ground when I told him to give a toy back, and the time he spent in time out. It's amazing how sinful and yet how sweet a little toddler can be.
