Hey, Baby! It's A...

Before we ever got pregnant, I always thought I would want to be surprised by the baby's sex. But then, when we found out we were pregnant, I was convinced it was a girl and Jim was pretty confident Baby Fraser was a boy. I knew then, we needed (and wanted) to find out what we were having: Mini Brie or Mini Jim? And it seemed everyone in our family was eager to know boy or girl, so on our 18-week ultrasound, we decided to find out the sex of our little bun.

I had decided from the beginning that the nursery would be gender neutral (no all blue or all pink rooms for this mama), so that wasn't an issue, but my mom and I did find it challenging to buy much in the way of baby clothes when the sex is unknown. Newborn, sure. Lots of yellow and green gender neutral sleepers there. But when you start looking at 3-6 month clothing and older, it's pretty tough to stay neutral. Plus, come on - have you seen the baby clothes out there nowadays? That stuff, boy and girl, is just gosh-darn adorable! I didn't want to wait to start shopping for it! Of course, and I'm sure it's needless to say, but I'll say it anyway, all we really hope for is a healthy baby.

So with that being said...

And we couldn't be happier! Most days, I still can't believe we'll have a little son of our own in just a few short months. And I've accepted that the testosterone in our house will outnumber me 3 to 1. More boys to spoil this mommy, I figure! :)


  1. Omigosh!!!! I, obviously, am so incredibly excited for you!!!!!!! Because, you know, baby boys are AWESOME. Yours is going to be so, so, SO freakin' cute and I just can't wait until the little guy arrives!!!!!! Seriously squealing with excitement over here ... (and sorry I'm SO behind on my blog reading!)

    1. P.S. With our fur baby included, I'm also outnumbered 3 to 1. But it's okay =P

    2. Awww, Melissa you're the best! :) And I totally understand the whole behind on the blog reading thing (actually, I've been good at reading posts, but horrible at leaving comments! - I must learn how to comment on my phone!).

  2. Congratulations Brie! :) This is actually so exciting.

  3. Congratulations!! My baby son was born in November and it's been amazing! Just remember that the first two weeks are always the toughest as you each get used to the other and try to figure out a routine, and the biggest thing was that sometimes... babies just cry :) The diaper may be changed, they may have a full belly, they may not need a nap, etc... and they just might like to figure out the sound of their own voice! After a while, everyone gets the hang of it! Congrats and I can't wait to see pictures when the little guy gets here!
