The date has been set! For the first few months we went back and forth on whether of not we thought we should find out what we were having, or wait. For those of you who know me, I’m a planner – in every piece of my life, there’s a plan. So there’s no possible way I could get a room decorated, pick out the things we needed with a “gender neutral” theme. Have you looked for “gender neutral” things at the store lately, let me tell you, the selection is thinner than thin. So we decided to go for it!
Our ultrasound is set for Saturday, April 19 – one day before Easter. I don’t think there could be a better time for this reveal than during holy week. We can celebrate and receive the blessings of God in knowing whether we will be buying bow ties or big flowery headbands 🙂
I read an article today that said starting at week 14 your baby can begin to hear you, so you should talk to them and read to them so they can hear your voice. Now, I’ve been talking to this baby since January so hopefully at least my guardian angel, and Murray & Theo (our boxer boys), have been listening to me. I think I’ll go out and buy a few books to read over the next few weeks.
I’m curious to hear – what did you read to your baby? Were they books that they like once they were born? Such an interesting concept.
