Thanksgiving has come and gone at last. It was so wonderful having my family here and I feel truly grateful for each of them. Now there's just 3 more weeks of school left and I WILL BE DONE. augh, so excited. I really hate school. Although, if I had to choose a college to go to it would only be BYUI, so I'm glad for the experience. And then I can just concentrate on finding a job and preparing for this baby!
The mutual "feeling" has been officially confirmed--we are having a boy! I was so relieved, and here is why.
For the longest time I wanted a girl so badly, but starting from about 2 weeks ago ALL I could think about was having a boy. A little Jonathan. I would sit and stare at the boys in our ward, and when we went to the mall I was instantly drawn to all things blue and brown. I felt horribly guilty, because what if we had a girl after all? Would I be dissapointed?
Jonathan and I would always call it a "he" by accident. If I jumped from feeling it move, he'd say "Did you feel him?" or "What's he doing in there? Somersaults?" and I would do the same thing- "Oh, he's just stretching out his little limbs" and so on. We would catch ourselves a lot of the time, and try to revert back to "it". I don't think it was by accident anymore.
Right before we went into the doctor's office, I asked Jonathan if he would still be happy were it a girl on that screen. Of course he said he would, but I could tell he didn't anticipate that happening. I too wondered if I'd be as overjoyed...but a big part of me knew we'd start our family with a son :)
Today we went to the fabric store to pick out our colors for the nursery. For now we have the mindset of red, brown, baby blue and dark blue. We also bought our stroller and car seat last night and I can't wait for it to get here! It is dark brown and baby blue. For some reason I'm just not a fan of the cartoon/cutesy stuff. Jonathan and I are both pretty simple people. Oh and Megan just dropped off her Christmas present and I LOVE it. She bought an old rocker, painted it to match the crib, and upholstered it with deep red corduroy- one of the colors we previously decided would definitely be in the room. It is slowly all coming together, but there's still so much to do. Good thing we have four months!
Happy Holidays everyone,
