You could have knocked me over with a feather! The news of this little miracle being a boy was the surprise of the decade and embarrassingly I have to admit that it’s been hard for me to wrap by brain around! Let me first just say that when it comes to gender I have NEVER gotten what I wanted, yet in the end I have ALWAYS gotten what I needed and I know this sweet little man will be a treasure! He will be adored and gazed at for hours and quickly melt all his sisters hearts and steal mine!
I honestly never imagined having a son. Up until the very moment before I saw his “Nope! I’m a boy!” parts on the ultra sound I had already pictured my 4th little girl, nicknamed her “Lulu” and decorated her nursery in my head! The shock of it took my breath away and once my girls were off to celebrate I held in my tears for as long as I could but they quickly escaped and I was a mess. The only way I can describe it is not being upset it was a boy but being devastated that I wasn’t going to have my sweet little girl to finish our family! It’s hard to understand and hard to explain. Girls have been all I know! Pink, skirts, bows, lip gloss! I’m good at it! I loved being a family of just girls and the thought of keeping that special classification thrilled me!
So of course I feel horrible that my first initial reaction wasn’t pure bliss! Poor little guy deserves all the excitement and anticipation any new arrival should get. But I am happy to report that over the last week my day dreams have been all about this little baby boy! What will he look like? How will I keep myself from smothering him with kisses and nuzzles?
I’m still freaking out about raising a boy! My thoughts are nuts! I’m gonna have a daughter in law some day! I’m going to have to kiss him good bye and send him on a mission! Crap! Does this mean sports practices and games will run my life? I need trucks and legos! I’m sooooo not ready but I’m getting more and more excited for the new life that is ahead of us.
So I’ve put to bed my dreams of having all girls and am embarrassing the idea of loving up on a little guy! I’ve always wondered what a baby boy Dulgarian would look like. Soon enough we’ll know!
Boy names are proving to be difficult so any suggestions would be helpful! This kid is going to be super rad so he needs a killer name! You can get away with a lot more with girl names then you can boys. We love classic names but names that aren’t trendy. Our last name makes it tricky too. His name has been what keeps me up most at night. ” And this is_________!” Help me fill in the blank!
