Days off

Sam just had 5 days in a row off.  Let me tell you the last time that happened.  November.  Maybe December.  Point is, even though he has a scheduled week off every month, he usually works overtime for at least 3 of the 7 days.  We had plans for what we were going to do.  We were going to take Zoey to the bark park, go bowling, maybe even catch a movie.  I even had this idea that maybe we'd go to Madera Canyon for a day.  We didn't do any of that.  Instead, we spent most of his days off watching season 8 of Grey's Anatomy.  I've already seen it, but Sam had only seen the first few episodes of the season, so I decided to re-watch it with him.  Did that stop me from crying at every single sad part? Nope.  Being pregnant makes everything 10 times more sad, and if you've watched Grey's Anatomy, you know that it can be pretty sad to begin with, so just imagine the state I was in!

In other, more EXCITING news, yesterday we found out we are going to be having a little boy! I kind of had a feeling it was going to be a boy, but Sam was sure that we were having a girl.  We had to wait almost an hour after my appointment time to actually have the ultrasound, but it was worth the wait.

I hadn't bought any baby stuff before yesterday.  I just wanted to be able to buy something specifically for this baby, not just something that could be for a boy or a girl.  So after lunch, I talked Sam into taking me to Target and getting a few clothes for baby boy.  Has anyone noticed that there is a much larger selection for girls than there is for boys? (that's what it seemed like at Target yesterday, anyway.)  We managed to find a couple things that we liked in the newborn section, and I am so excited! I have a feeling this little boy is going to be kind of spoiled.  I already can't wait to go shopping for him again!

Boys are so awesome! Not as much fun to shop for, but you start developing an "eye" for boy things! I order most of Sawyers stuff online, because the stores have terrible boy selection! You are going to be such fun parents! Are you going to share his name when you pick it out? ... Please? ;) haha

I had a feeling you were going to have a boy! And I hate how they have twice as much stuff for girls than boys! You really have to search for the good stuff. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
