It's a....

Somehow more than half my pregnancy has sped by (ok, the first trimester wasn't speedy at all but the last few months have been) and the big news is...

Everyone seems quite excited about the idea of us having one of each. I would have been just as overjoyed with a girl for many reasons (mostly the clothes) but feeling very lucky either way right now. I'm sure there are many magical experiences that only boys can bring waiting for us. As far as I go, I'm feeling much better in second trimester and wanting to make the most of the last summer we are a threesome.

I also have quite a few home projects coming up I'm super excited to finish up. The bathroom mini makeover you already know about but I'm also working on two big makeovers - a living room and an outdoor entertaining patio - over at my brother's country cottage as well as adding a small bedroom (bunk beds!) to our beach place by cutting the shore living room in half.  Maybe this is a blogger's version of nesting?  Probably more like trying to squeeze it all in before the newborn sleepless zombie stupor sets in!

    1. Thanks Cassie. I have a brother and we are really close so I know it can be a wonderful thing. It's just all new territory and that's a bit scary for someone like me that doesn't love change :)

    1. Thanks! The part that scares me is boys are so much more high energy but I'm hoping the girl energy in the house helps balance that out a bit.

  3. Hooray!!! Finding really cute boy boy clothes is a little bit harder in my opinion (I drool over girls clothes everywhere) but dressing your son up like his father is most fun thing in the world :-) Congrats!

    1. The boy clothes are definitely not as fun but at least I had lot so fun with aggie's wardrobe so now I'll get to explore the other side of the coin. My plan is essentially to dress this kid like an old man for as long as he lets me :)

  7. Wonderful! (For me, changing boys' diapers was easier than girls') Bon courage, comme ils disent les Francois...

  8. Congrats! One of each is great. I was like you, wishing for another boy like my first. But of course now I wouldn't trade the whole experience for anything. There's a wonderful balance of energy in our house....and my daughter has the wild energy compared to my son's calmer demeanor. You just never know! Embrace and enjoy the whole thing :)

  10. That's such exciting news Stefanie and with all the projects on the go, it sounds like you're in full nesting phase! How fun that you'll have bunk beds at the shore. I remember you talking about that years ago!

  11. A boy and a girl as we say in French is "le choix du roi" (the king's choice), congrats !

  12. Ah! How did I miss this?! So exciting! One of each. Lucky lucky girl. I was surprised at how fun it actually is to dress a boy. There are so many hip options out there. I don't know what it's like to have a daughter, but I do know that a son will tug your heartstrings in a place you didn't know existed. My boys absolutely melt me. So happy for your adorable family!
