It’s a Baby…
WOW! It has been so hard to keep this secret for so long because my husband and I found out very early that we are having a baby BOY in January. This is our first child and we cannot be more thrilled.
Before we knew, my brain was in girl mode. I am not sure why because I just “felt” like it was a boy. That part is hard to describe, but I just knew. As I looked at models of Legos in my principal’s office and watched my male students draw pictures of Minecraft and monsters this week, it is slowly starting to sink in. I don’t know how to put together lego models or “beat the bad guy” to get to the next level of a video game. That is what I had a younger brother for and now I am regretting not paying attention to “boy” things more. At least I have a husband, male family members, and friends with young boys to help along the way and fill in the gaps for me.
We had originally painted the nursery with three walls of light grey and one wall of light purpleish-red (this was before we found out and wanted something other than the gross, dark blue and lime green that came with the house). Now we are switching the wall to a darker teal (Who made up all of this “boys are blue and girls are pink crap” anyway? I am the one that will be spending all the time in the room.) and I have already went on an Ikea shopping spree for all of the curtains, extras, and fun items. Now I just need my husband to go on Fall Break (teaching + night law school) to finish the wall!
I have so many things to do OTHER than prepare for baby right now! I have three craft show I have heard back from (all on the main page of our site) that I am prepping for and still waiting to hear back from about 4 more. Hopefully I am not overdoing myself this holiday season and Baby L comes in January and not earlier. I have been spending the last month or so creating new packaging, sending off product to local shops for the season, and creating our Rainbow Crayons in bulk to be prepared for the holiday rush! Be on the look out for some awesome sales and discount codes to be posted for your early holiday shopping pleasure. The more I can create now while I am feeling awesome, the better!
I will leave you with some of my favorite photos from our “BOY” photo shoot in NW Indiana (taken by my brother and sister-in-law).
