IT'S A........

BOY!!!! After MUCH anticipation, we found out this morning that Baby Blanks is a BOY! We are sooooooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!! We also found out this morning that Baby Blanks is ALREADY a little "trouble maker". Here's the story...

We went in for the sonogram at 9am. I was so excited I could hardly stand it! Of course, we start the sonogram and we see the heart, brain, arms, hands etc. So we move down to the leg area to reveal the big question and the little trouble maker down there had his legs crossed "Indian style"!!! He was quite content and had no desire to show us "his stuff"! I was moving every which way to try to get him to spread his legs, but the little booger wouldn't budge! So the sonogram lady told me to drink a coke and a cup of water and come back once I finished. So almost 2 hours rolls by and my bladder is about to BURST! She calls me back and sure enough, that baby was spread eagle revealing to David and I all his "goods"! So yes, we discovered right off the bat (the second time) that it is, in fact, a BOY! Most importantly, we also discovered that I have a very healthy baby in there and we are so grateful! We could not ask for anything more!
No name has been decided yet, and I can only hope (for our marriage's sake) that we can agree on one in a civil manner before Baby Blanks arrives! David has already said that he does not like the names that I have picked out...hmmmmm....this could get interesting! Wish us luck!
I can't wait to start buying all the cute, little boy outfits and picking out everything for his nursery! In fact, I'm off to the fabric store now! I hope David starts consulting people to sell LOTS of butter because this mama is ready to start SHOPPING!!! Until next time, YAY FOR THE BLUE TEAM!

Baby Blanks at 7 weeks and 11 weeks

As most of you alreday know, David and I are expecting our first baby in February! We were a bit shocked at first but the news has finally settled and we can't wait for baby Blanks to get here! David is loving the fact that he has a "sober driver" for the next 6 months!!
I went to the doctor yesterday. It was a typical checkup. They checked the heartbeat and that was about it! The heartbeat was 153 beats per minute. It has stayed pretty steady....7 weeks was 141bpm, 11 weeks was 165bpm and then yesterday. I was most excited about the news that we will be finding out if it is a boy or a girl on September 18! I can't wait to find out so I can start shopping!! YAY! She is letting me come a little bit early because my "excuse" was that I was going to Oxford that Friday and the Ole Miss game did not start until 6:30 Saturday night, giving me plenty of time to go shopping at Oxford Kids! Being an Ole Miss graduate, she laughed and agreed that was a good excuse!
So that is most of the baby news. I don't really look any different, but I feel very different. The pants are getting a bit tight and I invested this past weekend in my first "belly band". Not quite the same excitement as purchasing a new pair of Tory Burch shoes or anything! But I guess you do what you have to do!
I posted our 2 sonograms that we have had done so far. The 7 week pictures are on the right and the 11 week pictures are on the left. It's amazing how fast they grow! I can't wait to see how big it has gotten in two weeks (I will be 17 1/2 weeks). Well, that's all for now!
