Congrats, little boys are soooooo fun and exciting, every day is a new adventure with them. But don’t trust me much; I’m biased since I myself have one boy plus blue IS my favourite colour. I know you and Matt are going to be great parents.

Thanks. Not sure yet!

I think “Buzz” would be cute. I’m a fan of “unusual” grandparent names especially if there is a story behind the name.
Congrats on the baby boy! My oldest is a boy and after having a sister growing up the world of mudpies, trucks and superheros was a brand new to me but it’s been a BLAST!

Reply

11 Mom March 23, 2012 at 5:13 pm

I think Buzz or Grandma Buzz would be fun since it was my childhood nickname, and I was sad no one used it anymore until Matt revived it. My dad gave me the name when I was three because I was such a talker.

Thanks for pushing BUZZ!

Reply

12 Molly March 23, 2012 at 10:09 pm

We are all about the unusual names. My Mom is Ampy,,,which was HER childhood nickname (her name is Ann) and my Dad is Bat Man b/c he did NOT want a “Grandpa” name. I LOVE Buzz!
BUT, as it goes, I’m sure you will answer to whatever that little man calls you! :)
Have Fun!

The minute I knew I was pregnant – I knew it was a boy. And although I mentally let go of the girl stuff (Mani/pedis, pink bows) I was thrilled to bits that he was going to be with me. And let me tell you – girls are super awesome and I hope to have one one day, but boys? Boys and their mamas are a cliche for a reason. CONGRATULATIONS!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Ya know, the entire time I was pregnant, I had convinced myself I was having a girl (we didn’t find out) and low and behold we had a boy and I was definitely surprised! I have to say, I can’t even PICTURE a daughter now and if a #2 comes along, I would seriously be JUST as happy to have another boy. Before he was born, I just always pictured “little girl” things and I think it just comes from BEING a girl and playing with dolls! lol

I’m slightly more excited by your news as a Mom of a sweet little boy myself :-) Congratulations to you both ;-)

Will baby be Younger-M or just M for a last name? I’d love to hear about how this works out for your children… I’m considering keeping my maiden name and I’d be really interested to hear how you decide upon the names of your babies!

Younger-Monson. It’s the fairest thing to do, and we’re fine with the decision. Just pretend he has a long last name!

87 Ginger April 1, 2012 at 11:06 am

Good for you! We didn’t hyphenate (my daughter has my husband’s last name) and I wish we had. (Actually, just last night we discussed changing all of our names to Gibson-Swafford. May do that if she starts complaining about us not having the same name.)
I think it’s becoming more common so it shouldn’t be a big deal in school.

92 Anna W. March 23, 2012 at 10:07 am

congrats! your announcement is SO cute. i love it. i have a 7 month old boy and having a son is amazing. each day (sorry to be a cheeseball) gets better and better. randomly not properly placed comment but…i wish i had not put so much “money” into the nursery. we used giftcards leftover from our wedding at williams sonoma to purchase nursery stuff at PBKids and while I am totally happy with the stuff, it isn’t any better than what we could have purchased at Target or Ikea – and with that stuff I’d feel better about the fact that time FLIES and the nursery is in a constant state of evolution…pretty soon the crib I was obsessing over will no longer be useful to him, and the changing table (open shelves with pretty little baskets you slide in and out – PBKids, too) will be re-purposed. I wish I had bought a GREAT dresser with a changing table topper, not a real changing table. So maybe that’s where I wish I had splurged more, but I wanted to have stuff match and the real dressers that were big enough were 700+. I would spend more on a rug that you like that is comfortable and doesn’t SHED so that when your baby is doing tummy time and learning to crawl they aren’t eating the rug. The one you picked is a great choice. My husband is a pediatrician, so for whatever it is worth – no bumpers or quilts or pillows or toys in the crib so really make sure you love your crib skirt and fitted sheet as that is really all you will see. I found most of our artwork on Etsy and framed it myself at craft store. The best thing I have seen for a small room is the Ikea Spice Rack shelves repurposed to be bookshelves mounted on the wall (Emily at DailyGarnish did it, too). Invest in a great monitor, a great stroller and a great carrier. I love our Bugaboo and CitiMini but wish we had done the UppaBaby instead of the Bugaboo. I love our Ergo carrier, it strikes me as a “you” product, as well. And I love our Summer Infant Video Monitor which we bought at Costco as these items break easily and they stand behind their stuff. I would HIGHLY recommend you splurge on an organic mattress…there is a ton of research on why it makes sense. We were easily convinced despite the fact that we don’t do organic most of the time even for produce. Your baby spends a TON of time in that crib. Anyway…I could go on and on and on. Basic advice is – you can’t go wrong with anything you do but in the end you’ll end up loving your baby and having a million “next time I would….” – happy weekend and congrats again. We named our son Elliot and I didn’t pick the name until he was being sliced out (ugh, C-section) and it just felt right. Luckily my husband and I had discussed potentials ahead of time…so when I was all looped up and “told the doc” his name, it was a kosher decision :) You guys are adorable, I only wish I lived closer so I could walk you through all of our stuff and give you hand-me-downs!

Congrats!! How exciting! That’s so fun that you got to find out on the early side. Waiting to hit 20 weeks was killer! Were you surprised or did you have a gut feeling? Oddly enough, I had no dreams or anything about whether I was having a boy or girl, and was shocked to find out we’re having a little girl in July. However, I randomly had a dream that YOU were having a boy last week!?

Reply

102 Reghan March 23, 2012 at 10:20 am

ohh I always wanted to give you a heads up…if you have a Once Upon a Child second hand baby store go there for clothes!!! We had so much fun shopping for BOY clothes on Wednesday and got probably 30 outfits/sleepers/onesies for $78 and change!!! For things they grow out of so fast it’s so much nicer to spend less but still be able to stock up on adorable baby clothes. It’s all in perfect condition (they don’t sell anything ripped or stained) and I even got a lot of brand name Carter’s and Calvin Klein overalls (so cute!!!) We went to a brand name store and I got 4 or 5 outfits for $54 so it was definitely more fun bargain shopping lol
Just thought I’d share! I couldn’t wait to go out and buy gender specific things!!

Obviously, both boys and girls are absolutely wonderful, but if you are feeling any sense of intimidation about being a “boy mom” … don’t. I’m one of two sisters, so I kind of felt like boys were foreign creatures, but they are so dreamy. And they adore their mommies. :)

Your comment made me smile…they do adore their mommies! Little boys have always seemed a little intimidating to me, but heck…I don’t have kids yet so they all seem a little scary at this point! :)

aw yay! Isn’t it crazy how you are barely showing yet but he is completely formed in there, enough so you can already tell the sex? It always baffled me how they had all their tiny fingers and their little nose, all perfectly formed inside yet from the outside I wasn’t even showing yet!

Reply

163 Kate March 23, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Congratulations! Very cool! I have three good friends who are long term kindergarten teachers–each of them has told me that the kids that have easier names to spell and are more common tend to be more confident in their learning and more flexible sociallly. There are always exceptions (one of them had a student named Cornelious and apparently was a very self assured kid who eventually became some kind of great adult. The name thing Floored me….but something to think about!

Oh my gosh CONGRATULATIONS! You found out sooner than I did..I had to wait till 20 weeks. I’m having a boy too!

165 Kelly March 23, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Congrats. I can imagine it is fun to know for sure, although part of me has to wonder, is there any chance they could be wrong? Not trying to spoil the excitement just remember that I think it was fitnessista where she had been told early on it was definitely a boy and then a later ultrasound revealed it was in fact a girl. I know your nursery design seems very gender neutral anyway.

166 KERF March 23, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Always a small chance, but he seemed pretty confident and has only called a boy wrong once

Are you disappointed to find out he is a he? I thought you mentioned in a previous post you were hoping for a girl? (And the title choice I’ve Got The Blues, since the phrase is commonly used to describe sadness, I thought maybe that’s what you were implying?). You have plenty of time to plan & get in the son mindset! And of course we know you will love your kids whatever the sex!

Reply

175 KERF March 23, 2012 at 2:53 pm

No, that other post was just a joke because of the zebra striped diapers. I was 50/50 in favor of either one! And the blues was just a play on the color. No sadness!
