When you're a mom and one of your friends or family members tells you they are pregnant, it's hard not to reminisce about your own experiences with pregnancy and new mommyhood. You think about all the emotions that go along with each incredible milestone. I can still remember the day I saw my first positive pregnancy test...the day I saw my baby on the ultrasound screen for the first time...the day I found out Addie was a girl and then again the day I found out Blake was a boy. So I knew the EXACT emotions my SIL Meagan was feeling when she woke up today. Excited, scared, anxious...just to name a few. Above all else, you want to know that the baby is healthy. And I am happy to say that Baby Mueller is doing beautifully :-)
Now, once you know the baby is healthy, the next words you want to hear out of that doctor's mouth are, "It's a....". So...what were the next words out of Meagan and Ryan's doctor's mouth today?
It's a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the beautiful picture they sent us via e-mail right after their appointment...
Obviously my brother's doing, although I am sure Meagan was creative director :-) Isn't this a picture beautiful? I can just picture it framed in their nursery.
I was actually sitting in my OB-GYN's office today for my annual check-up and I was surrounded by about 20 pregnant women when I read the news. I sort of shouted, "Awww...it's a boy!" when the message came through, expecting them to all join in on the happiness. But the woman next to me was a week overdue and she didn't exactly share in my excitement. But I have been in her shoes too...so I get it :-)
As I sat there, all I could think about was my brother and sis sitting in that ultrasound room looking at their little man for the first time. Isn't he a cutie already?
I just can't wait to see him and hold him for the first time. Only 20 more weeks!!!!
Congrats Ryan and Meagan!!!! So happy my little nephew is happy and healthy in there. Love you guys!!!
And in other baby news, I had a visit with my friend Bre today and got to meet her PRECIOUS little man, Breckin!!! Isn't he a doll?
Just look at that perfect little face!
Just look at this happy new mommy...
You know...it's hard not to get baby fever on a day like today. I have been surrounded by baby bumps, ultrasound pictures and newborn cuddles all morning and that is HARD to resist. But for now...I'll take getting my baby fixes in small doses :-)
