Walking into our 20 week ultrasound scan on February 29th, I was full of butterflies. And not just baby flutters! Up until this point my pregnancy felt very abstract. My body acted and looked pregnant but it was still hard for me to fully grasp all that was taking place. Knowing the gender of our baby was a no-brainer for me as I needed something to make everything more concrete. I couldn’t wait to start using a personal pronoun and narrowing down our name choices.
So without further ado…
Baby Short is a BOY!
Jordan and I have always said, honestly, that we have no preference regarding the sex of our first kid. We’re just happy to be pregnant and to have a healthy child. When friends pressed, asking if I had a hunch, I replied by saying I thought it was a boy. I was still surprised when our ultrasound technician confirmed because who really knows if their hunches are correct!
As the youngest kid in my family, I loved having older brothers and if we are blessed with a girl at some point, I think it’s fun she would have the same experience as I had.
I can’t wait for Jordan to have a little buddy to pass down his music knowledge, play catch out in the yard and love of Star Wars (you know, the important stuff, ha!). We are so pumped!
P.S. His name will be kept under lock and key (we still haven’t decided!) until his arrival but we’ve begun referring to him as “Yoshi” or “Baby Yosh” 😉
