My husband, Joe & I found out Monday that our second child is a BOY!
With excitement, we headed home to show Ty Allen the sonogram pics and tell him he was going to have a little brother. When we arrived, he was just waking up from a nap with Grandmother and we said, look Ty, a baby brother! He just started crying and said, I don't want a brother, I want a sister! I want a girl!!
It was so disappointing so Joe reminded him that they could play baseball, go fishing, hunting and other boy things they could do. Later that evening, Ty came running to me and said, Mommy, LOOK! I brought my baby brother some stickers and he stuck them all over my tummy!!!
The next day, I took him to preschool and he ran in telling all of his teachers and friend he was going to have a baby brother! SO SWEET!
Due Date is December 4th.

  2. Congratulations! That is always great news. Children are a gift!

  3. Congratulations on your baby boy. It's going to be so fun for Ty to have a built in best friend.

  4. Congrats Jena! Boys are so awesome...I have two...I might be prejudiced? :) That is so cute that Ty shared his stickers with his baby brother! He's going to be a great big brother!

  5. Congratulations to you and your husband!!!Ty will soon come to his senses and be ever so thankful to be the BIG brother!!! Love Tiina...

  6. Congrats! My daughter had the same reaction. She wanted another sister and threw the phone down and ran off screaming when I called her from the hospital and told her it was a boy! Of course, she LOVES her brother!

  7. Congratulations! You just never know how the older one will react. I have two boys...they are big now but they are 2 1/2 years apart. It's perfect and they love each other even though they are quite different.

  8. Ahhhh, congratulations!!!!! I love my boys(;

  9. Bless his little heart, you will have to save that picture for him, I am sure it will bring laughs one day down the road! Congrats and Blessings, Janna
