We got confirmation yesterday that we are indeed having a boy. A son. Sigh. Happy hearts all around at the Anderson house.
But you know me. What have I been most excited for? THE SHOPPING.
Believe it or not, up until this point I have not purchased one single thing for baby. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
I needed the confirmation before I could commit to blue. J though it was a little weird when I said I drank some orange juice before the appointment to get the baby moving around, to ensure I'd get to "see the goods." Not his favorite word choice. He felt better when I said I needed to see my baby's "private parts." How that is better, I'm not exactly sure.
But I digress.
I will give you one sneak peak of the newest pictures. You'll have to tune in Monday for the rest!

This meant I was officially allowed to shop. I told J before the appointment that I was longing to buy something for the baby. Not any crazy shopping spree (yet), but something. Anything that signified that I am a Mommy providing for my child. He suggested that we take a little field trip after the appointment, and make our first baby purchase.
It was a happy surprise that J wanted to shop with me...again!
So off to Old Navy we went. Shockingly, J was the first to find something. And yes, when he showed me the tiny Star Wars onesie, I cried. I cried because I'm pregnant and hormonal, yes. But I also cried because J was picking out his kind of stuff for his son. It was a definite Daddy moment.
|This was J's total purchase. Baby is still in the womb, and he may already be a nerd.|

My mission = accomplished.
