It's a BOY! We are so excited to be adding another little boy to our family! #mythreesons




My sister hosted a gender reveal party for us about two weeks ago. It was fun! At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to find out in front of everyone and I've been dealing with a good deal of sickness and didn't feel up to it, but in the end, I'm so glad we had one.

All along, I thought we were having a girl. I have been very sick, the baby has a high heart rate, and the majority of the old wive's tales pointed to a girl. As much as I love little boys and have always wanted three boys, I was sure this baby was a girl. So sure, in fact, that I hadn't given any thought to anything boy-related.


Kaden has been all about having a sister and even had to get a pink shirt to wear for the party. At first, K.C. said he wanted a brother, but as it got closer to the time we could find out, he said he didn't care. I really think he didn't want to make Kaden feel bad because he wanted another brother and not a sister like Kaden did.

In the weeks leading up to finding out the gender, I really started to worry about Kaden if the baby wasn't a girl. He kept telling us that if he was God, he would give us a girl and how he prayed for a sister and God always answers your prayers. He was a little sad that it's not a girl, but he is ok because he wants the baby to look just like him. He cracks me up! He's also counting on getting a sister in the future and told me a few days ago that "there's a little girl in your tummy for later." Sweet child!

After everyone left the party, K.C. and I were sitting together talking and he told me how excited he is to be having another brother. He doesn't have to worry about pink things or dolls or a little girl getting his Legos. He's also decided that we need to get a baby gate for the playroom. I think that's a smart idea.

I don't think there was anyone more excited that we'll have three boys than my dad. He came to the party decked out in blue - shorts, shirt, and even a hat. He said he looked for blue shoes, too.



The party was really fun! We had our immediate family and a few of our closest friends. My mom and sister cooked some great food and had plenty of pink and blue. For the actual reveal, we had a cake and poppers and let the boys decide which way they wanted to find out. They picked the poppers of course and I'm glad they did! After we popped them, we cut the blue cake.

This is such an exciting time and I couldn't be happier!

So very excited for y'all. A sweet little boy to add to your sweet big boys. Makes my heart smile. I've heard there is no greater bond.

Congrats on the boy! I'm getting ready to have my second boy and like you was convinced it was a girl due to a lot of signs/feelings. My 4 year old insisted that it was a girl so I thought maybe he had that weird kid 6th sense but we were both wrong! haha. He was bummed for a while because he wanted a sister but now he's very excited for a little brother and fortunately my 1 1/2 year old niece lives right up the street so she's his "pseudo" little sister.
