Acting Out. . .

This is how I found Tucker today. Why do I have so many plastic bags and isn't that really my fault, you ask? Not really. He's simply acting out because of the big news we told him today.

He found out that he won't be the only small boy in our house. He will still be the only small non-human boy of sorts, but it's true--We are having a BOY!

It makes sense because I don't like baby boy clothes and we have no boy names picked out. Congratulations universe, you win. It's just yet another good reminder that we aren't in control and life is what happens when you're making plans!

We had a feeling it was a boy, and it was so much fun finding out that our hunch was right. JJ is, of course, totally beaming. I'm pretty sure the baby's take-home outfit will have a well known dog-like emblem with perhaps a purple and gold "W" on it, but we will see for sure in four-and-a-half months. Sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office JJ said,"We get to raise him to be a man of God." Now, who wouldn't be excited about that?

So, mom and I are going to Top Stitch this weekend to pick out Amy Butler fabric for the nursery and we need to pick out some names. Good thing he doesn't actually need a name until July. Or a nursery for that matter. I'm actually not sure which one is going to take longer for me to figure out:)
