little boys

It seems like everyone is either pregnant or having a baby. In fact, just yesterday I know THREE people who gave birth. Whenever someone I know has a baby it gets me thinking about my own deliveries. Especially my little boy.

My pregnancy with Miles was almost identical to that of Lacey's. I craved the same foods, was disgusted by the same foods, was terribly, terribly sick, and on and on. I was pretty sure I was having baby girl #2. And then, on September 27th, 2008, I found out differently. I was having a BOY.

I was scared. Like really, really scared. What on earth was I supposed to do with a boy?

On February 13th, 2009 at 3:42 pm my 7lb 3.5 oz baby boy came
(and quickly, like 1 push quickly)
into this world

and i found out right away that boys aren't scary.
I am so blessed to have a boy. Not any boy, but MY BOY,
my sweet little guy, who gets about 5,000 kisses every day because he is so darn cute and wonderful.

and he is 7 months old on Sunday. Growing up way, way too fast for his mom.
And I went from thinking "What am I going to do with a boy?" to
"What on earth would I do without a boy."

That is so super sweet! Do you scrapbook? (wait, silly question! - you have 2 kids under 2 years old!) ... I know you don't scrapbook NOW, but would you if you had time? Because THAT would make a beautiful page :)

...makes me kinda hope this one is a boy...

Wow... reading this post exactly one year after you wrote it... and one year after I (originally) commented on it... I feel like I could write that post to my blog nearly exactly (change the dates and times and length of pushing!) ... but I am so in love with my little boy and I had never imagined being a "boy mom"... LOVE IT!
