We announced our pregnancy in September and were touched by all the well wishes we received from our loyal readers. Now it’s time to reveal the gender! Will we have three boys, or will our two boys get a baby sister?
Just like with our second baby, I really truly didn’t have a preference on boy versus girl. Most people assumed I wanted a girl, but when they would ask which I preferred, I would smile and say, “Having a daughter would be wonderful, but having three sons would be just as wonderful.”
We wanted to tell our boys the news before we told anyone else. Mr. Handsome was able to accompany me to the ultrasound while my mom watched our kids. To turn it into a little date, we stopped by a deli after the appointment. (My sandwich wasn’t deli meat, of course.) Then we took care of a couple errands at the bank and grocery store (don’t tell us we don’t know how to plan a romantic outing and topped it all off with coffee (shared, so this pregnant mama didn’t consume too much caffeine). On the way home, we picked up gender reveal cupcakes from a local bakery.
Littlest Buddy doesn’t yet understand the concept of being a big brother, but Little Buddy was very eager for us to come back and share the news. When he bit into his cupcake and saw pink filling, he was thrilled!
