BOY!! Before David and I ever talked about having a baby, I never in a million years thought I wanted to know the sex. I always pictured myself waiting to find out until he or she was delivered. But, as soon as we got pregnant I was dying to know; it’s all I could think about.
I thought I always wanted a girl first. I think most girls want their own little mini-me that they can dress up, put massive bows in her hair, have someone to shop with, etc. I’ve had my girl name picked out since I was 16. David and I actually talked about and agreed on our hypothetical future daughter’s name on the cruise when we met 🙂 so, clearly I have always pictured a little girl in our family….
…but, from the moment we found out we were pregnant I was 99.9% sure I was carrying a sweet little boy. I don’t know if it was mother’s intuition or what, but I was convinced. Everyone around me seemed to think it was a girl. But, I stuck with my gut and never wavered. Thankfully, one of my oldest and dearest friends, Jenna, offered to do an ultrasound at 16 weeks to tell us 🙂 I don’t think I could have waited another 4 weeks to find out at the doctor!!
When we went to go see Jenna, she knew instantly. Our little man was not shy! It was the most amazing experience! Having such a wonderful friend be the one to tell us the news was just perfect. We are soo grateful for you, Jenna!!
After leaving the ultrasound, David and I were ecstatic. We were able to call our baby “SON” and “he”, not “it” anymore! It made everything 100 times more real and I felt such a closer bond with my sweet boy. After we left, we both knew and agreed on his name without even having to discuss it. It just fit and felt right.

We truly could not be more excited to be having a sweet little boy! I am so excited to watch him grow and learn about the world. I am so anxious to see what he’s like, what he’s interested in, and I can’t wait to see him and David together. I have no doubts they will be best friends and get into all kinds of trouble together 🙂
We already love you so much, Noah!! We can’t wait to meet you!
