I feel like I've told this story a million times, but I'll repeat it again anyways... At one of our craft shows recently a little boy (maybe 3-4 years old) came up to our booth and started talking to me. He asked me if I liked snakes and I replied "Oh, yes, they are very slithery!" and he giggled. He asked if I liked spiders and I said "Oh, yes, they have lots of legs and they run really fast" and he giggled again. Of course I was lying to him, but the look on his face each time was absolutely hilarious. Before leaving our booth he pointed wildly at one of our fake display succulents and shouted "Can I buy that for my mom?!?" His mom looked so embarrassed, but it made my heart absolutely melt. Then he ran into the next booth with his mom and from across the way pointed to his chest and yelled "NIPPLES!!".
When we first found out that we were pregnant again I started creating pinterest wish boards, one for a girl and one for a boy. My little girl one was LONG and full of dresses and leggings and cute little things I could dress a little girl in and play with her with. My little boy one wasn't quite as long. I started to worry that I wouldn't be as excited about having another little boy, if that were to be the case. So I started searching for even more little boy things, trying to pump myself up.
But it wasn't until meeting that little boy at the Barn Sale that I realized that being a mom to two little boys was going to be really fun! Do I still want a little girl someday? Sure. Will it be the end of the world if we don't? Absolutely not. Because my heart can still be absolutely filled with the goofy, loving nature of little boys. We found out on Monday that our newest little baby is going to be a little boy, and we are pretty stinking excited! I've already started building him a little "nursery" in the corner of our room and I am so excited for Emmet to have a little brother!
