And the baby is...

I had my first ultrasound on Friday afternoon and was very eager to find out if we are expecting a pink or a blue. Let me put this in the proper context for you...

I didn't really have a preference for either a boy or a girl because Stephen and I know there will be more kids in our clan no matter what (aka, more opportunites to give Julian a little sister or a brother to round out the family ;0) Though I really wanted to know because you see, my mother is a fortune-teller. She doesn't do it for a living or for anyone outside the family for that matter, but every once in a while she'll predict something that just happens to come true. Now that doesn't sound like much, in fact I don't really believe in that stuff either, but something got me wondering about two years ago...

Stephen and I had been married for about 6 months and decided to start a family (we just couldn't wait ;0) We tried for a few months to no avail and each time, we were both crushed. It was just so disappointing that it wasn't happening and I was already starting to worry that it just might not happen for us and my mother told me not to worry, that I was going to get pregnant on October 17th. I thought she was bonkers as usual because come on! What a weird, and precise, thing to say! Well guess what happened? I got pregnant with Julian on October 17!!! And that totally freaked me out. You mean my mom could be right about some of this stuff she predicts? Really freaky!

Especially since she predicted Stephen and I would have 6 children: five little boys followed at last by a little girl! Now we want a large family but let's be realistic, when we say that in this day and age, we mean 3 or 4...not 6! And 5 boys? Talk about scary! So when Julian turned out to be a boy, we were still laughing about it but deep down we were both thinking OMG, what if she's right about it all? Well she hasn't been wrong yet...

We're expecting another blue!

    I don't know what is in the Montreal tap water, but everyone is expecting baby boys! Congrats on the blue! I'm expecting my first child, a boy, in January. When are you due? Please email me at graphicdesignchick at hotmail dot com to view my private blog. It's private due to a stalker (unfortunately). Anyhow, hope to hear from you soon - and CONGRATS!!!

  7. Nice to hear from you again Anny. Love the fact that Julian will be having a little brother to play with, only 3 more to go. Love the socks too, arent colored dpn's nice, I have purple ones too. I love the new sofa, looks nice and comfy and Julian is growing so fast isnt he. What a cutie.

  8. Congratulations! I think boys are great!

    And how freaky about your mom...

    My mom is sorta the same way. She always knows the sex of babies before they're born (I do, too, but only with folks I've met), knows when someone will die, etc. She keeps prognosticating that my husband and I will have all we'll see!

  9. I'm so happy for you! What sweet boys you have! I totally agree with you about the's definitely only requiring one singular sock. Duh. I'm just so happy to hear from you and love the new sofa. Did the life-like baby pillow cost extra?


  10. Congrats ... boys are good. Five boys will give you a basketball team right? Girls are good too ... My Mom had 6 girls, before having a boy. But at least she then gave him a brother. Her own Mom did the same thing but only had 5 girls first before having 2 boys. My daughter has 5 girls & 1 boy. (Thank the Lord, He skipped me for only 1 girl & 2 boys) All my energy goes into the 18 grandchildren I now have, LOL!

    Your Mom has a good chance of being right!

  11. Congratulation Anny!!

    You are like me too!!
    expecting a boy on March!!!
