The technician let us figure it out…you took awhile to show us, but you finally stretched out and we saw your unmentionables.
naming you Ames, after my Papa,
I pray that you will grow into a kindhearted man, and that you will always know the intimacy of the Father. You are our son, but you are His too. I can’t wait to share that with you.
We spent a lot of time chatting and laying around. I read a few books and soaked up some sun. It felt good, like summer was on its way. And of course, I fed you well. Lots of yummy seafood and potluck goodies!
This is the first week I wanted you to be a boy. I always said I wanted a girl, just because we already have Lucas & Avery… But I couldn’t help but watch the little boys on the beach, digging in the sand and chasing each other. I was captivated. The girls didn’t hold my attention. In fact, I found them to be a bit loud and silly! My mom looked over at me at one point and said, “You’re probably going to have a boy…and you’re a boys’ mom.”
So we’ll see! We find out what you are in 2 weeks, before we leave for our cruise…Happy 60th Anniversary, Nina & Papa! We’re leaving from Charleston and hitting Bermuda for 2 days. Your daddy has never been out of the country, so he’s like a little kid with excitement! You’re going to be a world traveler, and you’re not even born yet! Love you, little one.
