First, let me just say that I had no idea what I was looking at when the technician showed us this picture. Literally, no idea what part of the body so I'm just going with it.
Now, my reaction. I'm excited. Little nervous, but excited. I'm nervous because I have a girl, I'm a girl mom and being a boy mom is probably a lot different. It will be an adjustment and I won't get to dress up another girl in all of those cute clothes. But I'm excited.
I think I might be most excited to have that mother/son relationship. It's crazy but I had this moment when watching "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?". Watching the relationship with his mom and that his mom adores him and he adores his mom. I nearly started crying thinking about what this will be like for me one day.
Rick is beyond thrilled. He has a boy to do "sports stuff" with. When we told Addie she would have a brother she said, "No, girl". When we asked what she wanted to name him she said, "Girl". So we'll need to warm her up to the idea. Addie finally got to see my best friend, Mary's baby this weekend.
She did well but immediately said, "Mary, take him". I love this picture. It makes me happy to have a boy on the way. She'll be such a great sister.
