Every time anyone asks if we know what LBL is I respond that we know it's a baby and that's all that matters.
Many of you have asked how we're doing with not finding out, if it's making it harder to prepare and if we regret it.
And I can honestly say that we don't. One benefit is that we're only getting one ultrasound and that time has come and gone so I can't help but feel that we've missed our chance to find out.
But really, preparing for this baby would not be any easier if I knew if LBL was a girl or a boy. In 15 weeks we're going to be embarking on something that we've never done before. Jus and I haven't had to change a diaper in years, we get full nights sleep and we can be selfish with how we spend our time. In 15 weeks our lives will be controlled by a little person that screams, poops it's pants & thinks sleeping at night is overrated.
While there are times I wish we knew LBL was a boy so we wouldn't have to agree on a girls name or I wish we knew LBL was a girl so I could buy lots of summer dresses that's the only time I wish we knew.
Decorating the nursery has been fairly easy as we're sticking to a primary color scheme that works more within our house than within a gender. Gender neutral onesies are harder to come buy but we've found plenty of yellow, green, red & grey that I can play up with tutus or bow ties.
If the little person that joins us in June is a girl we'll be waking up in the night to feed her, learning how to comfort and care for her and trying to figure out how our relationship will evolve to include our darling daughter.
And if the little person that joins us in June is a boy we'll be waking up in the night to feed him, learning how to comfort and care for him and trying to figure out how our relationship will evolve to include our darling son.
You get the picture, right?
Either way Jus & I are going to be out of our comfort zone, learning something new and interacting with our child.
So why not let this be a surprise. It's out of our control and I can't wait for that day in June when I look at Jus and we finally know that our LBL is exactly the little boy or little girl that was meant to join our family and our lives.
