Happy New Year everyone! I’m currently waiting for the boys to finish making root beer so I can get in the kitchen and attempt to make some vegan steak bombs for our dinner tonight.
Speaking of boys, this house is going to be full of boys soon. We can officially announce that Soy Bean is going to be a little boy! I’m surrounded! Sophie and I are going to really have to stick together.
I’m very excited, and not surprised at all. When I first found out I was pregnant I had a strong boy vibe almost instantly. However, as far as pregnancy symptoms go, I’ve been experiencing typical “girl” symptoms, like craving sweets, morning sickness and so on.
My husband is so excited about having two boys, he’s already planning camping trips. It’s going to be a long time before he takes my baby out into the woods though…However, when he does I have big plans for the couch and a glass of wine.
As far as baby clothes go, I know everyone says it’s fun to shop for a girl but I love the little boys’ clothes I’ve been seeing. I’ve always enjoyed shopping for my stepson (he’s one well dressed kid thanks to me…and my mother-in-law and mom of course) so shopping for a little baby is going to be that much more of a cuteness overload.
The highlight of my vacation this week (besides seeing family, having awesome date nights, and eating delicious food) was hearing my son’s heartbeat for the first time. We had a doctor’s appointment on Thursday morning and luckily my husband was able to come. Before we’ve only see Soy Bean’s heartbeat in the ultrasound so I was super pumped (see what I did there) to hear it. We even heard him flip over, he’s very active in there, I’m sure I’ll appreciate that when I can actually feel him.
I hope that you all have a wonderful New Year. It’s strange to have a weight gain goal for 2017!
