{Hello Boy}

When you tell people your expecting the first question you get is ... so when are you due? and the second question is always.... so do you know what your having? Its like everyone has been giving this conversation starter in their brain to have with all pregnant women.

When we told people during our pregnancy that we didn't out (actually even now when people ask, and we say no) they seem shocked. A little confused and not understanding why we chose to find out. I have no definite answer (and maybe with a second we may find out) but neither of us felt that strongly to find out either way. We were both just so happy to have been blessed by finding out we were pregnant that I didn't mind that I couldn't by girly dresses or baby denim jeans! I honestly did not mind one bit.

And no I did not have any inking or feelings about the sex of the baby. I did not have dreams of holding a girl or boy. We picked girls names and boys names, and by the time of due date we knew if we had a girl or boy we would name them. Which was one of the nicest happiest memories of the birth - yes it was pretty drugged out for me (an emergency c section can do that to you!) but instead of K telling me its a boy. He said ' It's Maxwell'. I knew then I was a mummy to a boy, a very pretty one (Another thing I clearly remember saying on seeing my son for the first time - hes so pretty!)

That very day (later in the day as he was born at 4.24am!) K had gone home and before coming back to the hospital he headed to the staple of all new parents - Mothercare. There he stood in the boy section and picked out the first 'boy' clothes our little one would wear. He must of agonised for ages (anyone who knows K and his clothes will understand this!) and carefully selected a set of baby gros with stars, and I love mummy and I love daddy on. Some comfy cosy baby blue and white terry towelling baby gros. and some bright colourful vest. The first Boy clothes Maxwell wore -his daddy had picked. They were not generously gifted to us, or presents. They were hand picked by daddy. I can imagine him in mothercare, feeling nervous (he just became a dad!) and excited (he just became a dad) - and knowing my husband he would be telling EVERYONE. I wonder how many parents like this mothercare see??

I'm happy..another story told..another gap filled.

Happy crafting

  3. That is a wonderful story! I bet they don't see that many JUST parents so I think K was very brave to go in after a couple of hours like that. We didn't find out with our first but we accidentally did with our second. Lovely layout by the way.
