Little Pregnancy Update

Christian and I went to another ultrasound yesterday, and because I'm now 19 weeks*, we were able to find out the genders of our little babies.  I could barely sleep Sunday night for excitement.  I had been waiting and waiting to know, and putting off shopping for anything until I knew.  I even avoided looking a baby girl clothes all together, convinced as I was that we were having two boys.  But now the news is in: one boy, one girl, and both perfectly healthy.  We couldn't be more happy.

Christian is trying to convince me that I shouldn't buy any baby clothes until February, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to wait.  Aren't these vintage clothes adorable?  I love the thought of dressing our baby girl in ruffly cotton dresses, and our baby boy in tiny cardigans and bow ties.  {I want him to look like Christian in this picture.  Actually, I want him to look like little Christian in almost every way.}

*Every time we go to the doctor, we get a different due date.  In fact, we get two different due dates, one for each baby, because they develop at a different rates.  For consistency's {and my sanity's} sake, I picked the closest date and stuck with it -- this date puts me at 19 weeks.


  1. How exciting- the best of both worlds. :)

  2. Hooray Hooray! I am so excited for you. Those clothes are adorable. My mom kept all my brother's baby clothes from the 70's which I am pretty stoked about dressing my little guy in. Those shoes are especially precious.

  3. I'm so excited for you! I can't decide if I want a boy or a girl but to have one of each would be perfect! Congratulations, again. You are going to be an amazing mom--I'll be cheering you on the whole way!
