18 Weeks!

It's a boy!!! We're so excited!!

I think J.B. and I really would have been happy either way. We had both a girl and boy name picked out and were ready for whatever God gave us.
But literally on the way to our ultrasound to find out the sex, J.B. says, "You know, I think I decided I want a boy." I told him it was a little late for that, haha.
So when the tech said it was definitely a bouncing baby boy, my husband was crazy giddy.

I love traditional names, especially Biblical ones. We've decided on naming him Jacob Aaron Wilder. Maybe Jake for short, we'll have to see what sticks.

I've still been feeling good. Little lacking in the energy department, but no sickness or crazy weird symptoms. {Other than a crazy love of hot wings, but I think that was pre-pregnancy...}
And despite my big ole belly above, I've still only gained two pounds. Whoop whoop!

Now starts the fun part! Registering, designing a nursery, buying adorable little boy clothes. And of course, we're still mostly clueless. If any of you guys have recommendations for new babies/new parents/baby boys please feel free to let me know! We're taking all of the advice I can get!
Love this little kiddo already!

p.s. Ironically, my friend J.J. is in labor with her new son at this very moment. I'm hoping everything goes smoothly and a big happy BIRTHday Baby Ben! Can't wait to meet you!


  1. I'm so stoked for y'all! I know J.B. is chomping at the bit to do cool stuff with his newly acquired "mini me." I'm also stoked about the party this Saturday, we haven't seen y'all in FOREVER!

  2. Yes!!! Can't wait for Halloween this year! I may or may not have spent two hours cutting out paper bats tonight... :)

  3. Congratulation to have a baby boy... maintain a proper food diet during pregnancy. this will help for to deliver healthy baby...
