oh boy

It's officially a boy! Which means the guess at the NT scan at 12 weeks was right. That's actually pretty cool.

It's been so fun telling students, family and friends. People get so excited! Makes me wonder how they would react if it went the other way. Just as excited I'm sure.

So we are deep in name territory and feeling so much pressure! How do we decide? For now we are calling him Clarence. Hmmmm...my students started that and for whatever reason it stuck. I like being able to call him a name, even if it won't be his actual name.

My time lately has consisted of nursery planning, searching for cute boy clothes, mulling over the name list, and chatting with my friends about showers. I'm ecstatic and in disbelief that we are planning showers. Can this really be happening?

I guess so.

I'm officially past halfway at 20 weeks 3 days. And time finally seems to be passing quickly.

We've seen some incredibly happy and incredibly sad news in the community lately. Rejoicing and grieving for both of those. Every time I think about this life inside me I think about all of the people I know still walking the road and pray desperately that they/you could all get what you want.


  1. Congratulations Hattie on finding out your having a boy!

  2. Tha is so exciting!! Congrats!

  3. I'm loving all the boys! I am fretting over finding a name myself. Hubby and I don't really agree on most and it's a lot of pressure when people are asking you. We'll figure it out eventually.
    Celebrate every week. It's such a blessing.

  4. Congrats my dear. I'm thrilled for you.

  5. Little boys rule! ;) We didn't have a name for BabyBoy pre-birth (truly, we didn't agree on a name until after we saw him), and my work peeps called him "Homer."

    So exciting!
