REVEAL PARTY!

Our gender reveal party was tonight!

I don’t really have any filler because I’m just TOO STINKIN’ EXCITED!

Jarrett and I got our wish! IT’S A BOY! You have NO idea how happy we are!

Here are a few pictures from our night. I tried to only include ones of Jarrett and I since I don’t have permission from any of our family or friends to put their pictures on my blog.

These are the important ones anyway:

This is when we opened our box! Obviously, blue balloons popped out!

Proof of our happiness πŸ˜€ I love him so much!

eek

This is my favorite from tonight! Jarrett is holding our balloons, of course and I have the ultrasound pictures that proved that our little guy is, well, a guy. This now both of our profile pictures on Facebook, haha.

Eek!

Anyway, he already has a name, which some of you might know since I posted our possibilities on the “About Us” page.

His name is Bodhi H C E.

Obviously, you don’t get to know the whole thing, guys, but I’ll tell you more about his name.

Bodhi has been a love of mine for years. I’m incredibly lucky that Jarrett ended up loving it too! It’s pronounced boh-dee. This is the original spelling of the name, which is Sanskrit and means “awakened, enlightened”. I like that is sounds nice and southern, but has that hippie vibe that’s so… Me. Jarrett likes that aspect too. It fits our little family perfectly.

H is my maternal grandfather’s name. He was the only constant grandparent I had (my nana lived 6 hours for most of my life, my paternal grandmother doesn’t like my family and paternal grandfather’s wife didn’t like his kids, only her own…) and he passed away in December of 2012. I told myself that if I ever had a son I’d name him after my grandfather, who’d always LOVED the idea of having a H L S the Second. Jarrett REALLY likes his name and even suggested that we use it as a first name. I just… Don’t know if I could say H every day without feeling a bit sad. Middle name it is!

C is Jarrett’s older brother. He’s a Corpsman in the Navy and a very devoted husband and father. He is Jarrett’s ultimate Β best friend. He was Jarrett’s rock while they were growing up and even though he probably doesn’t know it, I will be forever grateful for who he helped Jarrett become.

There you go. All of the info. It’s late and I would greatly enjoy an eight hour nap!

Thank you all for reading and I hope you have a FANTASTIC day tomorrow!

Excitement is Building!

It’s Saturday night.

On Thursday morning, we had our awesome, big ultrasound and got to see a lot more amazing pictures of our wee one. They also saw the gender! However, we’re having a really fun “gender reveal” party Tuesday evening, so no one knows. No one at all πŸ˜€

We. Are. So. Excited.

As it gets closer, I don’t know why in the world we decided to wait. It’s starting to get ridiculous, haha.

Since I can’t really tell you too much about that at this very moment, I’ll just show you the newest ultrasound. We did get one that actually showed Wee One’s face, but we’re keeping it for ourselves. Our parents have the picture on their phones and such, but we didn’t share it on Facebook or any of that junk, so I guess I won’t post it here either.

Here you go!

Also! I started my new job a little while ago.

As I believe I said on one post, it’s a very small part time job at a clothing store. It’s not much at all, but its something. Jarrett and I are thinking that I should find another small part time job like this one until the baby comes. He doesn’t want me to work WAY too much while I’m pregnant. He’s working towards getting a job at the nuclear plant in our area, which would (of course) pay TONS more than he’s making now and offer amazing insurance. Once the baby is born, I’ll replace one of the part time jobs with a bigger job, or (if he gets hired at the nuclear plant) I’ll quit one of the part time jobs and only work a little until the baby is about six months old or so. Jarrett is comfortable with that option as well. I SERIOUSLY hope things can work out in that manner…

Anyway, I am so tired I could literally pass out, sooo… I think I’ll do that. Sundays are my only guaranteed day off and I plan on being incredibly lazy tomorrow.
