We’re having a boy

Two weeks ago we found out that our Speckle is a boy! I’d had a feeling about this so my first reaction was ‘Yip, that’s about right.’ Then I succumbed to extreme delight which had me dancing a jig when we left the doctor’s and smiling like a Cheshire cat for ages. Col on the other hand was in a state of shock. When I’d collapsed into an exhausted heap that evening Col finally caught up and then started leaping around the house chanting ‘It’s a boy! It’s a boy!’ like some crazed Indian chief.

After putting up a poll the day before our scan, I was under pressure to let people know the verdict. Facebook won out for sheer convenience, but for the purposes of posterity it seems like a good idea to make a blog post about it as well. So here are a few pics Col and I took on Instagram this afternoon for just this purpose. (I bought this giant letter a few months ago and was planning on using it as decor in our bathroom, but I think now I’ll have to incorporate it into the nursery somehow.)


Pink or blue?

Tomorrow (as in Friday 20 April) we are going for our next scan and hopefully we’ll be able to find out if Speckle is a girl or a boy. Those of you who have a feeling one way or the other – vote in our poll!
