My Name Is Snickerdoodle: You wanna hear something funny???

You wanna hear something funny???

IT'S A BOY!!


After 9 months of thinking it was a girl and getting some confirmation of that, our baby ended up being a boy! And we couldn't be any happier. He is perfect in every way. I went in for a regular dr. appointment last Thursday and my blood pressure sky rocketed. He sent me right over to the hospital to get some blood work taken, which came back fine, but he wanted to induce me because of my blood pressure anyways. 11 hours later, with three of that pushing, little Liam came into the world. We are still in shock that we have a baby and a baby boy at that! Of course our friends and family have come through with boy outfits and things so he didn't come home in pink. He had to stay an extra day because of some complications, but is doing so good now. He may be suffering with too much love, hugs and kisses from Ian and I, but that is only curable with more love, hugs and kisses!

  4. Congratulations on your little boy! I had the same thing happen to me when I was pregnant with my son! I vacuum sealed all the bedding and clothes in one of those big bags and hoped I'd have another chance to use it! You'll love being a mommy to a boy! There is nothing like a momma's boy! Congratulations and look forward to seeing many, many pages of this precious little guy!
