Hello! It’s been quite a while…
I changed my site all around and my music. It seems that this will be the theme song for my pregnancy… it keeps getting stuck in my head and I hear it in my dreams… so it’s just going to stick!
Ryan and I had a wonderful Christmas and New Years with the family! It was so good to be with everyone for a holiday again.
I’ll have to talk about all of that later though because I have big unexpected news!!!
First off I have to share some pictures! The first one you’ve seen… this is me at 13 weeks pregnant.
This is me just a few days before Christmas at about 16 weeks pregnant. Holy Moley!
And here I am yesterday at 18 weeks and 4 days.
Now for the big unexpected news!
I had my regular Doctor’s appointment today. After the expected question and answer session and all the regular information that comes along with this kind of appointment he asked the question I had been waiting for.
I said “Yep, just one! When do we get to find out the sex of the baby?”
He smiled and said… “Do you want to take a peek now?”
Ryan and I grinned at each other and said a big enthusiastic, “Yes please!”
We were escorted into the ultrasound room and set up. We were so excited as the lights went off…
And then there the baby was. The doctor showed us the head and neck… the length of the spine and the rump. The baby was sitting with legs drawn up to chest just waving those little arms around and then the doctor slid the picture to the side and showed us the face. The baby was sitting there opening and closing it’s mouth and looking so much like Ryan it was crazy!
And then the big moment… Another adjustment by the doctor… a little kicking by the baby and then this!
Can you see? Can you tell?
IT’S A BOY!
Yes, our little Laubester is a boy… This means that baby has a name and the nursery has a theme! 🙂
The nursery theme will be…
Cotton Tale Pirate Cove to be exact…
We will pull in a bit of Peter Pan and Captain Hook just for fun and our animal of choice will be stuffed Alligators! Fun Fun Fun!
Now for the all important name…
Our son’s name will be, Isaac Orion Laube.
The name Isaac means, Laughter. We choose it because in a way it will be this baby’s heritage. If the Laube men are famous for something it’s laughing and making other’s laugh. It’s an added bonus that the name comes from the story of Sarah. Sarah could not bear children and was already very aged at the time of his conception. She chose the name Isaac because she had laughed at the messengers of God announcing that she would finally have a son.
The name Orion means, Son of Fire or Hunter on the Mountain. This name is my way of naming our baby after his Dad without actually having a junior.
The name together, Laughing Son of Fire, is pretty much a perfect description of our personalities together… He has the laughter and I have the temper! 🙂
So all in all that was our hugely exciting and completely unexpected day!
I guess I had better get a move on… Dinner won’t make itself and me and the Laube boys are getting hungry!
