Better Late Than Never: Gender Reveal

Better Late Than Never: Gender Reveal

Better Late Than Never: Gender Reveal

Gender reveal time, are you ready?

Holy Cow, I am 28 weeks pregnant with baby number two and I swear it feels like yesterday I found out I was pregnant. Oh, how the second pregnancy differs from the first and oh how I forgot what pregnancy is really like (check out this post to refresh your memory). Seriously, my midwife actually had to remind me on multiple occasions what week I was on and I certainly don’t know what fruit my babe compares to. In any case, finding out whether this wriggly babe inside of me is a he or she was just as exciting as it was the first time around.

So before I let the news out, let’s start out by saying that I have always envisioned myself with a houseful of boys, especially after having Hudson. I love being a boy mom. It’s what I’m comfortable with and what I’ve mastered. Adam and I just knew that we were going to have all boys, but something about this pregnancy felt different.

They say that when you are pregnant with a girl, you get ugly. Well it started with pimples and then the morning sickness started and then my inability to hold in any type of bodily function. I certainly wasn’t glowing. Ladies, please tell me I’m not alone on this one!! Also, unlike Hudson, this baby is like a judo master karate kid who never stops moving, dancing, kicking, and squirming, and every time I would feel those unfamiliar flutters, I just got a feeling. I felt like it was a girl.

But I must be wrong…

When we got the scan, Adam promised me that we would be looking at our second son and I had convinced myself of the same because that is the life we painted…so you can imagine our surprise when the doctor told use we are having a sweet baby…

GIRL

Yep!! This self-proclaimed boy mama is gonna have another girl in the house and we are all oh so excited!! I guess all along I knew she was a girl, but didn’t want to tempt fate The biggest thoughts running through my head right now are:

  • OMG I can’t wait to see Adam with his DAUGHTER!
  • Wait, Hudson is going to have a little SISTER! 
  • I have no girl clothes, shit.
  • Please Lord don’t let her be as crazy and mouthy as me…
  • I’m not going to be the only girl in the house anymore!!
  • How the heck do you take care of a baby girl?!

I need all the clues and tips on raising girls and where to buy those adorable head bands because mama is gonna go crazy on the girl train. What about you? Did you know what you were having the second time around or am I just kidding myself?

P.S. I tried to get some good pics with the hubs, but turns out Hudson is way cuter. His sister might actually be jealous of how pretty he is.

Always,

Alexie

  • Daddy's little girl 💕As much as I love seeing Adam with Hudson, there is something so special about seeing him with his little girl.  Every girl deserves a daddy like Adam and every daddy deserves a baby girl to look up to them like they are the best person in the world! 😍

  • I read a caption from @eliseknowles and I so related and wanted to share with you guys!! I think the best, most amazing part about motherhood and perhaps even being a woman is looking at the person you built and constantly, every. Single. Day. Being totally amazed by how beautiful they are. There is absolutely no greater feeling than seeing my babies every day and just thinking whoa...i made that beautiful spunky person and they have their whole life ahead of them to be AWESOME. Motherhood rocks.

  • Rainy Tuesdays call for extra snuggles and hot cups of tea...because let's be honest, how often do moms actually get to drink their coffee or tea while it's hot? •

  • Let me love you a little more before you're not little anymore 💕Just because theres a new baby in the mix doesn't mean this guy and I haven't been having our own little adventures. We sat in the grass today looking for elephants and giraffes and I whispered in his ear that I would always love him and always make time for him and I. I never want him to question how deep my love is for him.  How did you help your first horns assimilate to having a sibling??

  • She's a bit of a hippy like her mama ✌🏻I know everything can't be solved so easily but it does break my heart that there is so much hate in the world we live in! I know I say it all the time but it's our responsibility as mama's to raise our children to be the next generation of people. I refuse to allow my babies to have hearts full of hate. Let's love each other and love our babes and lead by EXAMPLE. Actions truly speak louder than words and our kids pick up on so much more than we understand! P.s. This little lady is a week old tomorrow...WHAT!?

  • You know all those worries I had about loving another baby like I love Hudson? Turns out you were all right; not only is it possible, it's absolutely amazing. Watching Hudson become a big brother is even better than I could have ever hoped for. He shows her his dinosaurs and gives her cuddles and (after a bit of explaining) understands that she needs mama's milk now and he doesn't. It's been a whirlwind couple of days but oh my gracious am my heart is so full. SO FULL. •

  • Welcome home Presley 🌿 This little bundle was born on Tuesday morning. I was so afraid of labor after Hudson but this time around was such a different experience. I breathed, I stayed calm, I listened to my body and this sweet girl was born. The only way to describe life right now is that I feel like we found a missing piece to a puzzle we never knew was lost. She fits in perfectly and we are all so in love. I promise baby spam soon, but for now I'm just going to take in the wrinkles and tiny toes and huff this baby's head like it's my only job in the world. P.s. You were all right about how my heart would grow. I never knew I had the capacity to love two humans in the same way but oh my goodness it is possible and they are both my life. Thanks for all the love and encouraging words. Can't say I'm sad to say goodbye to being pregnant though 😆
