Our Peanut

Things have been very busy lately. School is kicking my butt and I often just come home and pass out...7th graders are definitely tiring. While school is pretty much consuming me, Cody has been studying hard for a promotional test. With all of that, we pretty much just turn our minds off at night and veg out in front of the TV.

Anyways, I just realized that I never came here to announce the big news that we recently found out. Our Peanut is a BOY! We thought he was a boy very early on. In fact, in my very first post I wrote about that little feeling. 

We are very excited about having a little boy. I'm loving all of the little tennis shoes and sports outfits. But one of the most exciting things has been choosing his name. We went back and forth, but we did have a pretty specific list that we were choosing from. In the end, we're so happy with the name that we chose, and I love how different and unique it is. I'll stop teasing it now and just give it to ya...


Lots of people have asked where Gunner comes from, but we don't have a real reason for it, we just liked it. Gunner's middle name, Blake, is my Dad's middle name too, although my Dad has always gone by Blake. I love the fact that we're getting to show a little love to my Daddy this way.

Needless to say, we can't meet our little man and we're slowly planing things like his nursery..well, I guess I'm really the one planning that. Cody spends lots of time thinking about sports and building tree houses, he can't wait to have a son.

I'll be 19 weeks tomorrow. I'll be back soon to post more pictures!
