We have a gender for monster #2!
(Yes, I nearly forgot to make this post in all the excitement. oops.)
This baby has been so very different for a very good reason. Monster #2 is going to make BIG changes to our little world as we know it.
Monster #2 is a.....
This is monster #2's face. Ain't he a gorgeous lil thang?!?! Handsome already. No, I will not post a pic of his naughty bits, you just have to take my word for it that this is a boy.
I am clueless when it comes to boy babies. I have only ever even babysat one boy in my whole life much less raise one. All I have ever know is glitter & hair bows & sparkly girly things. We live in a house run by girls that is covered in pink & shiny bits n' bobs. I am not sure how a boy is going to cope in our house, heck hubby barely makes it around here unscathed. I am pretty sure at least once before he turns 1 year old he will be attacked by the 2 girl monsters & have bows put in his hair and possibly have some make up applied.
The balance of glitter & girly is now going to be thrown askew with trucks & bugs. How will the universe cope with this shift? Who knows what will happen & how we will all be changed.

I have to wait one more torturous day to find out the gender of this baby. We find out Thursday October 3rd. if monster #2 will be a giggly girl monster OR a snotty boy monster. OR as my mother keeps telling me we will be finding out what all 5 of them are. Do you know what would happen if the ultrasound tech told me there were 5 babies in there?!?!?! If you said stroke out on the spot you might be right! Someone would have to catch my poor hubby before he hit the floor although same goes if they say there is any amount more than just the one. I am about to go nutty not knowing yet. In a perfect world you would know if it was a girl or boy the minute you peed on the stick...sadly not a perfect world.
You are probably wondering how far along I actually am at this point since we are going in for a gender scan. I am due February 23rd at this point I am almost 20 weeks. Hopefully baby will cooperate and my next post will be letting everyone know the gender of our precious monster #2.
This pregnancy has been crazy for me. I have been sick since way before we even found out I was pregnant and all I feel like doing is napping.
This is all hard to fit into a schedule around a homeschooled 6 year old.
The monster is fine with the fact she will no longer be an only but is torn by what we will eventually name monster #2. My monster votes we name the new one Pinky Pie or Ella of Frell. Hubby & I are actually very torn on what we like and do not have a single full name picked for a girl or a boy as of yet. I am hoping we can come to some sort of agreement before the baby gets here so we can have a real name on the poor thing's birth certificate & important stuff before we leave the hospital. With the monster I knew for a while even before the ultrasound she would be a girl. It didn't take us this long to pick her name, we had it ready & waiting the minute we were told for sure she was a girl. Monster #2 has me thrown for a loop I have no clue what it is going to be, aside form the obviously being a human baby. I suspect that much to the hubby's dismay #2 may very well be another girl but I would not take any bets on it. I am confident that whatever name we choose it will still be less embarrassing than being named North West, Sage Moonblood or Bear Blue.
*Mommy confession...let me air some dirty laundry here for a minute.*
I am also hoping not gain a million pounds with this monster. I worked so hard to lose weight before I found out I pregnant & plan to get right back on track as soon as baby gets here. A loss of 45 pounds is nothing to sneeze at & I really don't want to sound selfish here but I will be a bit depressed if I gain much of that back.
