bump #75: It's a BOY!

See pics of the gender reveal party here.

After our 6 week ultrasound and reading about the location of the yolk sac determining gender (it's on the left for a girl and right for a boy in your first ultrasound pic), I had a strong feeling that baby bear was a boy. The gender vote was split about 50-50, so it was a fun surprise! This is the first boy and first grandchild in our families. My initial reaction was "YAY!" followed quickly by, "But wait, what do I do with a boy?!" It's all girls in my family, so this will be a fun new adventure. I see a lot of legos in my future :) 

We are so excited for a boy! I've already been collecting cute little boy things like newsie caps, converse, and 4 piece suits. You know, the practical things every baby boy needs :)
 My Aunt Vanessa loaned us her beautiful Emmajunga antique pram carriage, and it's so darling! 

My mom and I spent over 3 hours at Joann's Fabric Store on Monday (Columbus Day Sales!) to get 50% off fabric to decorate the nursery. It turns out I'm kind of picky about that stuff and was having a hard time finding any neutral, classic looking crib bedding that I really liked, so we decided to make our own (except that I don't sew, so thank you mom!)  Here's some blurry cell phone pics of the fabrics we decided on. My amazing mom has been busy sewing away and already reupholstered the glider and ottoman.

I still can't believe this is all happening! I'm preparing to decorate a nursery! What?! For my baby boy?! Yay!!! This is a dream come true!!!


  1. Congrats on your baby boy! Isn't it amazing decorating a nursery for a sweet baby? It still feels surreal to me too.

  2. Congratulations!! The clothes are adorable.

  3. So, so excited for you! You are going to love having a little boy and he's going to love having you as a mommy!

  4. Yayyyyy! Boys are the best :)

  5. Ooooh!! Love those fabrics!! And I felt the same way- didn't even realize how picky I was about baby stuff til I started getting it for my own child, and then it's like..uhh, I'll learn to sew. Or find someone to do it for me.
