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.)
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
