Well if you haven't already guessed it by the title of this post, Peter and I found out yesterday that we are expecting our third BOY!
This does not come as a huge surprise to us since Peter's family has a long line of boys! In the 3 generations before now, there have been about 12 Kuznia children born, and of those 12, 10 or so have been boys! Needless to say, after having 2 boys already, we were not completely shocked to find out about a third :).
Since I am a newbie at scanners, I haven't scanned the ultrasound pictures yet to share. I'm not really sure if I will scan them either, since they aren't as clear as the ones I got with the other boys. I guess we'll see.
Although I'll admit that we were hoping for a little girl this time, we are not disappointed by the news of another boy at all! We are just feeling very blessed to have another healthy baby! We are also feeling blessed to know that God created this special little boy just for us and for our family! It doesn't get any better than that!
Plus, there are some definite positives to a third boy. First, we don't have to buy anything! Our baby clothes, despite having been through 2 boys already, are still in excellent condition, with some of them hardly worn. We also won't be needing any toys. Our house is nice and full of boyish toys--from baby toys to big-boy toys, we're covered!
Also, if I haven't mentioned it before, ultimately these 3 children will be sharing a bedroom. Three boys in one room seems to make a little better sense too. Logan should be moving up to a big bed around 3 years old, and by the time he's 4 we're hoping to bunk the beds! At that point, our newest peanut should be joining the other 2 and also inheriting the "big" crib. I'm sure it will take a lot of figuring out, but I am excited to see all 3 of my baby boys sleeping in the same room someday. Oh, and inevitably we'll be buying a larger home in the coming years. No rush on that, though.
Here was Brady's reaction upon finding out that his newest sibling was going to be a boy:
"Ay yay yay yay yay"
"We have enough boys in this house, I wanted a girl this time"
Since he's heard the news, however, Brady has adjusted well to having another brother on the way. He also seems pretty anxious to share his room once again. I think he's mostly just glad that the baby won't be joining us for some time yet :).
I guess there is less doubt now that the Kuznia name will be passed down again. There has also been talk, dare I even say (or think), of a 4th? Not likely, but who knows?
Thanks for everyone who participated in the gender guessing game in the past week. It was fun to see the guesses and even more fun to share the news today!
