I will never forget Friday, January 4. The day we found out we’re having a baby boy.
Every day for the past 4 months I’ve prayed for one thing… A healthy baby boy. It just blows my mind how God answers specific prayers. I mean I would have been happy either way as long as the baby is healthy, but why not ask for something specific?
Most people say, “we just want a healthy baby.” Yes, that’s obviously the most important thing, but for Andy and I, we were terrified of having a girl. We’re both only children and haven’t grown up around a lot of kids. Although Andy is amazing with children… boys are just more comfortable to us. Girls are emotional, drama, have attitude… I gave my mom hell for years… Andy might kill any guy that tries to come around our daughter. A daughter someday is doable, but with an older brother to help look out for her it’s perfect.
It took Andy a moment, maybe the entire day, for it to sink in. After our appointment we bought a blue toy airplane for our parents from a baby boutique on Proctor. My dad was a pilot and Andy’s dad work fueling United airplanes for his entire career. Our parents were thrilled. They both knew how much we wanted a boy and they were right there along with us.
That night we celebrated with our friends who were equally as stoked. I jumped on nordstrom.com to make my first ‘boy’ purchase. We are so thankful and feel so incredibly blessed.
