Gender reveal post

In case you missed the spoiler alert in my post about Haven, we are going to have a baby in November! Yep, I’m almost six months preggers.

We found out the gender of the baby a few weeks ago. I’ll give you a hint:

Yep. You’ve got it. We are having a little boy!!!

Tiny originally said if it’s a boy, she will throw him in the garbage. But, thankfully, she changed her mind. Now she’s telling us she secretly did want a brother so she could dress him up as a cowboy. Whew.

While I was praying for a healthy baby and pregnancy, I remember saying to God, “I already have a little girl (and all the stuff that comes with one). I come from a family of all girls. Another girl would be a fairly easy adjustment for me. What do you think, God?”

Well, praise Him, he doesn’t leave us where we are in our comfort zones, amen? He is always stretching and growing us (both figuratively and, in this case, literally). I have no idea what to do with a little boy. But we’ll figure it out. In the meantime, I would greatly appreciate your prayers for a safe delivery and healthy baby. Thanks!

    Congratulations! I just found out a couple weeks ago that I’m pregnant (our first)! I’m just the opposite of you, I grew up around mostly all boys. 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your baby boy! I was the same as you, I have a baby girl and it’s all nieces for us on both sides of our family. God blessed us with the absolute sweetest little boy and I am just beyond in love with him. Enjoy every precious moment!

    Congrats Susan and Mat and Tiny!!! I laughed when I read you were afraid of what to do with a little boy. I felt the same way when I had Blake. I remember saying to the Lord now what am I going to do with a boy? There isn’t an ounce of boy stuff in me; but the Lord took care of it and he has grown to be a very godly man. I pray the Lord will bless you in the same way.
