As much as I would like to think my "mommy intuition" is always right.....BOY was I wrong this time....we are expecting to add one more to our family in early October and yesterday was the 20 week ultrasound. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I just knew it was a girl....and this isn't my first rodeo...I would know these things right???
So, when the ultrasound tech said very sweetly, "would you like to know the sex of the baby?" I smugly said "Sure..." (I just wanted her to confirm what I already knew of course)
"Well, there are his boy parts!" Wait a minute, "boy parts??"
I love how God always knows what we need...when we need it...and always with perfect timing. My 6 year old daughter, who had been not so secretly hoping for a sister, told me before she left for school yesterday, "You know I really do hope it's another brother...little boys sure are sweet to their sisters."
I kissed her sweet face and told her we would know soon enough and either way we were going to be so happy. So as shocked as I was that I wasn't right, and had been secretly hoping for her to have a sister too, I am amazed at how quickly my thoughts of all things girly turned to another little guy in our house with a smile just like his daddy's. I love him so much already and I know there will be lots more times that I will be wrong....but when it comes to this one, I am so happy to have been wrong!
I really had to change gears when it came to a room for this sweet baby.... I had been planning on birds, blooms and a pale pink shabby chic room. I don't think that plan will work anymore!
So here are a few things I found and quickly pinned to my inspiration board on Pinterest
I still got a couple of birds in there too!
How cute is this wall art??
This was just a start...I'm going to have a lot of fun this summer making over our "TV room" to baby's room! I will be sure to share all the fun projects I come up with!
