And in truth?
Ok, so maybe last weekend when I was baby shopping for a dear friend's shower, I may have had a fleeting moment of curiosity. Because that little girl's outfit would just be perfect.... if I knew this baby was a girl! Aside from this moment and maybe a handful of others, I am much more excited for the surprise that awaits me! There's just never going to be another moment in life like the moment this baby comes into the world and we hear, "IT'S A......."
Endlessly exciting! So while we wait, here's a little run-down of our baby plans thus far:
Here's our gender-unspecific baby nursery plan. We've picked out furniture, girl bedding, and boy bedding. We picked a paint color to match both bedding sets and will ideally have the room painted and the furniture set up by due day. Then, after baby arrives, we'll order the bedding to match whatever sex we're blessed with! We were gifted with a lovely pack & play that has a newborn sleeper attachment that will reside at our bedside for the first few weeks. By the time baby M is ready to transition to crib life, the room will be complete. I have a few cute "neutral" decor ideas for the room as well as some girl-specific ideas and some boy-specific ideas. It'll all come together in time. While I'm sure my stress level will escalate as the weeks go on, as of now, I'm pretty comfortable with our "start now, finish later" plan.
And of course (this is what you've all been waiting for!), we've picked out 2 baby names.......
If this baby is a girl, we are about 99.9% positive her name will be Natalie Anne.
And if this baby is a boy, we are about 99.9% positive his name will be Isaac Edward.
So there you have it. Baby M might be a Natalie or might be an Isaac. Only time will tell!
What do YOU think baby M will be???
