Is my baby a boy or a girl?  This is one of the first questions moms-to-be wonder.  It usually comes right after “am I pregnant?”  I know that with both of my pregnancies, I had a strong feeling about the gender.  If I could have chosen the order of my babies I would have had a boy first and then a girl.  You know, so big brother could protect little sister and I would get the best of both worlds.  But when my husband and I first found out I was pregnant, I just knew it was a girl.  I got used to the idea long before the ultrasound, which just confirmed my gut feeling.  Since all I’ve known for the last 3 years is all things girl, this time I thought it would be neat to have another girl.  Sisters sounded fun.  But this time, I felt early on that this baby was a boy.  I got used to the idea and the ultrasound confirmed, once again, that my intuition was working…at least a little bit.  If I told you how I THOUGHT my daughter would look vs. how she looks in real life, well, that’s pretty laughable 🙂  So, when my friends Courtney and Lane told us they were going to wait to find out the gender of their baby, but they both felt like it was a boy, I couldn’t wait to see if they were right.  I really admire couples who do this.  I know it used to be that way for everyone, but with current technology it is so hard to be patient when you can find out at 18-20 weeks.  I’ve even heard of a blood test that will tell moms around 11-12 weeks with a very high accuracy.  So, I secretly admired Courtney when she smiled as I looked around her very boyish nursery after we finished up her (amazingly gorgeous) maternity session and wondered aloud: what if it’s a girl?  You know what her reply was?  “Well, I figure she’ll be a big tomboy.”  That’s pretty cute stuff right there.  Alas, this momma had her baby and what do you know, it was a boy.  She was right.  And he is just precious.  All it took was a little bit of milk and he was ready to let me do whatever I wanted for his newborn session.  Here are a few of my favorites of this sweet, squishy little guy:
