The Marine Behind The Blog: On Having A Girl

source url A while ago, I saw a “Boy Behind The Blog” link-up that I had wanted to get involved in but never got around to. That link-up has been over for a long time, but I still loved the idea. So, I wanted to start doing a “Marine Behind The Blog” series. I write so much about our lives, but rarely do you ever hear from my husband. Here’s your opportunity to get to know him a little better. (Btw, I think he is such a hottie in this picture! Just sayin.)

Boy or Girl? (Gender Reveal and Hubby’s Reaction)

I’ve been busy busy busy this past week! Why? Well, I was getting things ready for our gender reveal party this past Saturday! I think it actually went off pretty well. I can’t wait till we get the photos from our photographer! She did, however, give us a collage preview, and I am beyond excited to get all the photos. We went with a sort of vintage inspired theme. I’ll tell you more about it after I get the pictures and am able to blog all about it. So, if you missed my Facebook post on Saturday, our new little baby is a . . .

YES! You DO see pink! Can you believe it?! We hardly can. Although, after seeing the ultrasound photos, there is absolutely no mistake. This baby is definitely a girl! We are so stinkin excited! I was actually in pure denial for a while. I kept staring at the cake like it must be a huge mistake. But no, it’s true. We are having a girl! Aaaaaaahhhh! Wondering what my hubby’s reaction was? You can see it below:

I’ll admit that I’m a bit nervous about this baby; more nervous than I was with my last pregnancy. We have been wanting a baby girl for quite some time, and I’m finding myself becoming fearful of something happening. I’m not saying that I wasn’t at all concerned with any of our other babies or that we didn’t want them just as much. It’s just that . . . well, I think you know what I’m trying to say. It’s like I’m afraid my body’s going to do something crazy because it’s a different gender or something. But, no matter what happens, I know God is in control and we just have to trust in Him. So, for the time being, I’m going to revel in the excitement of another baby. Oh boy girl!
