For Christmas this year Chris and I were a little bit crafty in our approach to gifts to our families. We had artfully deceived our families into thinking we weren't able to find out the sex of the baby until the middle of January. But my doctor was willing to give gender-predicting a try so we could surprise our families for the holidays. Well, we were definitely successful in our efforts and were eager to package our results and gift them to family for Christmas! So I'm sure you're thinking "enough already, just tell us"! We are proud to announce that our upcoming bundle of joy is a.............BOY!
Yes, you read right folks, a boy! His name is going to be William Christopher Hansen...good, strong name, huh?! Chris and I couldn't be more excited and I couldn't feel anymore relief (even though it would be because of Chris if the baby was/wasn't a boy!)! Chris had imagined a boy all along and said he just couldn't see us having a baby girl first. Maybe one day, but for now we adore our little boy! We've even bought a few outfits for him to wear already! It's so crazy how fast time is going now that the new year is here and we know what we're having!
I totally slacked in keeping up with belly pictures with the Christmas season and traveling all over but I did manage to get one at 19 weeks and 3 days. I feel huge and I look just awful all the time but things will get back to normal after the baby comes, right? Right?! Chris is thrilled at the prospect of a big, strong, football player so at least he has a positive outlook! Hopefully I'll do better at posting more frequent belly pictures as well as all of the things I make for our little guy with my new sewing machine!
