Show Us Your Life~ Moms of Boys

Let me start by saying our oldest son was an only child for nine years until his baby brother was born last April.  We thought long and hard about adding another member to our family, but it just seemed like the right time and we started planning.  Almost everyone we told asked if we wanted a girl.  My response was always some variation of...It doesn't matter; We don't really care; Just so s/he's healthy; Either will be fine with us. I got tired of answering that question, because in all honesty, it did not matter to us one bit.  We wanted another baby and for Daniel to have a brother or sister.  That was the only thing that mattered.  For some reason, I had a gut feeling that we were having a girl...until the big ultrasound proved otherwise :)
Following that appointment, we drove to Kohls where we picked out a little brother onesie and baby blue security blanket.  Any thoughts of having a girl escaped and I didn't look back. 
We started thinking about names, planning a nautical nursery theme, and dreaming of what life would be like with another boy in it.  I can't imagine anything other than having boys.  There is so much fun and joy...and so little drama {yet}!!  I look forward to watching them grow and anxiously await what life has in store for each of them.  My boys are my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way :)
