Ya'll have waited long enough! We are so excited to announce the gender of baby Greco...
It's A Boy!!!!
Bring on the blue! It's official, I have a little boy in my tummy! Nick and I are over the moon excited about this! We cannot wait to meet our little guy. I am currently 23 weeks pregnant, we found out the gender about two weeks ago. We're so grateful baby was in a perfect position during the ultrasound for us to discover the gender. And let me just say, some of the photos we got... wow! It's 100% a boy haha there is no mistake there. Nick was adorable, like most men he was hoping for a baby boy and when the ultrasound tech said "it's a boy" I swear Nick's eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas. Now of course I was so excited too, I cried when we found out, but Nick was just so adorable. His excitement was impossible to hide.
First of all, I'm just grateful and happy we have a healthy baby, above everything else that is most important. But let me just say I am so excited about having a boy for so many reasons. First being that almost everyone tells us that boys are easier, and of course we would like to start out with an "easy" child, that way we aren't too scared to have more. Now who knows, maybe it's not technically a fact that boys are easier and I'm sure tons of parents would argue with us on that, but from what I've seen with the kids in my life, it sure does seem that way. Speaking of family's kids, that's another reason I'm so excited to have a boy. I have two nephews who are just absolute sweethearts! They are now 12 and 11 years old and are still such a joy to be around. If we have a little boy that is anything like them then we'll be on cloud 9. I do hope to have a little girl one day too of course, a little shopping buddy, but I'm excited that if we do get blessed with a little girl one day she will have a big brother to look after her. In a perfect world of course.
We still haven't chosen a name for baby Greco. In fact, we are having a really hard time finding a boy name we both love. We'd like to choose an Italian name, but aren't having much luck finding one we want for our kid. I will keep ya'll posted.
I've started buying items for his nursery, friends and family have already gotten us a ton of adorable baby gear (like the sweet football outfit Nick is holding in the picture) and I just got all registered for the baby shower (see last weeks blog post, I talk about registering for baby). All of which is making me more and more excited to meet this little baby boy! I will totally be doing a post on his room theme, it is ADORABLE and I'm so excited to share it with you all once it is finished, which probably won't be until early May.
Only about four months left until he makes his grand arrival. I'm on the countdown but I am also just trying to enjoy each moment during pregnancy. I'm trying to stay focused on the blessing that pregnancy is when my mind wanders to focusing on not so positive things. Baby Greco is kicking up a storm in there, it's such a miracle to feel your baby move and it is by far my favorite part of being pregnant. In fact, our baby boy is kicking as I am writing this and I am all smiles. Baby Greco must like me blogging about him. Nick has felt the baby move three times so far and he gets wide eyes every time! We both agree that feeling the baby move makes it all feel so much more real. Once you feel your baby move, there is no denying you are creating a life. It's such a blessing and I feel so lucky to be experiencing this.
