I have no will power. None. I was going to wait and be surprised about the baby's gender, but I just couldn't take it anymore. The curiosity was killing me! George was willing to do whatever I wanted so it was really my decision. We had an ultrasound this week and found out that we're having a boy! A brother for Mario. It will be fun to see them together, and I'm happy that they will have each other as little playmates. I never had a sister (I have 3 brothers) so I don't know the feeling of having a sibling of the same gender. I imagine it's a strong bond. I hope it's like that for my boys. I just can't wait to meet this baby! Is there anything more exciting in life? I really don't think there is.
Do you see him sucking his thumb up there? So cute. The sonographer measured his feet at just 3 cm long. Amazing.
I've been revisting this book, which I used for lots of inspiration when Mario was a baby. Just love this book. Makes me want to pitch a tent at a flea market and buy all sorts of old baby things everyday! A wonderful decorating book if you've got babies or even small children.
Now we just have to think of an Italian name that goes with Singarella......this is the hard part! I don't want it to be too many syllables, or something that kids won't be able to pronounce! We've been thinking about it for a long time and have only a couple names that we're considering. I'm sure it will come to us sooner or later!
I cannot believe that I will have a baby in 4 months. I think it just hit me. I must have lost my mind when I decided to start a business AND get pregnant. But I knew if I didn't just do it, I never would. I would feel too overwhelmed to begin a new venture with 2 or 3....or 4 kids so I wanted to start when I had just one little one running around.
Speaking of that one, here's his new haircut (and a very mischievious smile to go along with it). He must have just finished hiding a few things down the cracks of the couch cushions. Last week I found a bottle of BBQ sauce down there. No leakage, thank goodness. I also discovered yards of ribbons and about a dozen foam paintbrushes.
By the way, thank you for all the Blog Love. I cannot tell you how much it means to read all of your comments and congratulatory words. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
