We're Having a BOY!

Old news to most, as of two days ago, but I am feeling the need to share on all platforms :)
Healthy, and still due: August 25th
He measured about 6 days ahead though, we'll see... I won't get my hopes up

Did you want to have a boy or a girl next? - Initially we wanted boy because we've been surrounded by girls and have friends/family about to have boys.  But then we got kind of set on wanting another girl for Ava to have a little sister so close in age.  We're perfectly happy though and can't wait to see the difference that everyone talks about!
What did you think you were having? - As in mother's intuition....I seriously could not decide one way or the other but kept leaning boy because of the fact that I haven't been a single bit nauseous with this pregnancy and  emotional/hormone-crazy that I don't remember feeling with Ava.
Does Ava understand anything about it?  She's clueless. She kind of gets excited about seeing babies but doesn't understand anything about my belly or what a brother or sister means yet.  
Have you thought of any names yet? Somewhat...we definitely had more girl names than boy.  We like getting to do the name picking to fill the time between 20 and 40 weeks.  We're not in a huge rush and don't feel like picking and telling anyone this early anyway. 

Fun fact - The Neil Harper family will finally have an heir with the last name Harper.  After 10 grandchildren, this will be the first Harper boy. 

We can't wait!

  1. Congratulations!! Wow, 10 granddaughters before a grandson? Did I read that right?? My little one will be the 9th granddaughter in a row and the first grandson is due the same week!

    1. Haha no sorry, I guess I didn't explain that very well. His sisters are the only ones with boys, but they don't have the last name Harper. So there will finally be a boy with the last name Harper. But wow, 9 girls in a row! Excited for you to add a 4th little girl :)

  2. Ohhhh, I see. That makes sense! Still exciting!
