It’s a…

boy!

I have to go back for another scan in 2-3 weeks time as it wasn’t an easy one to do as the baby is about a week behind in size (which is to do with me not getting my original dates right – baby is right size for a week behind!!). We’ll be able to confirm it then but she’s pretty confident and I saw what was most definitely a boy…

It was a bit of a surprise as I was so sure it was a girl, I’ve felt that all along (up until the last couple of days when I’ve begun to feel it was a boy). I admit I was a bit deflated as I’d have really liked a girl, but am now getting pretty excited about another little guy running around… just need to think of a name. I’m also feeling terribly guilty for being initially disappointed he was a boy, I mean it’s not his fault!! He just is what he is meant to be and I believe we get what we’re supposed to have… just feeling bad that my initial reaction wasn’t “how wonderful” but more “it’s a boy…” to Steve. I know it’s probably only natural as I’d gotten my hopes up for a girl but I know I’m gonna love him to bits as I already do and he will definitely be the last. I’ve only ever wanted 2 children so am very grateful I’ve got that wish.

Soooo to get myself out of that feeling I visited Pumpkin Patch on the way home and got the cutest wee pj all-in-ones, so the boy-induced cluckiness is well on its way.  I also went through what we had of Joshie’s baby clothes left and am loving the cute boy stuff available so all is happy.

Anyhoo… as a tribute to my friend’s lovely little baby that left them too soon, I created this kit called Remembering Alice. It’s a super-huge mega kit (we’re talking 20 papers, and alphabet and 62 embellishments!!) and is so soft and pretty, I’ve put it in the store too so it’s available for anyone that’s looking for a really pretty but not babyish kit. Just click on the images to go to the items in the store.

Also keep your eye over at Eidou for the announcement of our new Creative Team! PLUS we have some new designers starting shortly in the store – lots of changes happening and all very exciting!

Soooooo, off to look for some boy’s names, had a few girl’s ones in mind but nothing for a boy so it’s back to the drawing board.

  2. Congrats, Louise!! Two boys are a lot of fun, believe me 🙂
    Don’t apologise for sharing your feelings though, I think if you were almost convinced you were having a girl then it would have been a shock, and it’s only natural to take a wee bit of time to adjust to the idea. My second pregnancy was TOTALLY different to my first, so I thought I might be having a girl. We didn’t find out though, and by the end of the 9 months I was pretty sure I was having a boy. Funny how the mind works, eh?!

  4. Yay, Louise! Sorry you aren’t getting your girl but I have to say same sex siblings have this AMAZING bond that one can’t even fathom unless you have had it yourself. You will be completely amazed and in awe of how they are together. The love will show regardless of how often they fight or argue. I’ve seen it with my girls and my heart just overflows!!!! You will definitely have the same 😉 Can’t wait to see the little guy 😉

  6. Hey Louise – just caught up on your news! Congrats 🙂

    I really know how you feel though. I too was convinced as the pregnancy was different, it had to be a girl second time around. That’s one of the reasons I had to find out what gender bubs was for #2 as I knew I’d be momentarily sad as I would have loved a girl. So glad I did find out, because yes, there was a day where I was bummed but then I was able to get over it and be glad I was having two boys. I really didn’t want to feel like that at birth so finding out sooner was the right thing to do for me!! LOL

    Someone mentioned to me that a boy and a girl is nice for the mum and dad but two same sex siblings is great for the siblings. And seeing what great mates my two michiefs are, I whole-heartedly agree with that. 🙂

    Good luck choosing your name now 🙂

  7. I was the same when I found out Ravey was a boy – I was hoping for a girl & I even shed a tear when they said he was a boy – I was thinking “what am I going to do with boy??” But he’s awesome – so much easier than a girl – I’m glad I ended up with one of each and STOPPED – I always thought I wanted 4 kids, but then I had one & found out what hard work it is LOL :o)
