Happiness: Birthdays and Babies

Today is Steve's birthday. Sadly, he's not here to share it with us! We tried to get a decent, in focus, everyone smiling picture for him this morning, and this is what we ended up with:

Oh well, we tried! Happy Birthday my love, we can't wait to see you so very very soon!

And in other big news, Cheeseball finally decided to play for the camera, and the results are in on the pink or blue test. The result?

Peeps, Cheeseball is a boy! One hundred percent, no doubt about it, boy!

I have to say, I'm a bit shocked. Mostly because I was so totally convinced it was a girl. Then again, I was convinced Griffin was a girl too until that first ultrasound. So much for mother's intuition!

Now that the shock has wore off, I've begun to get quite used to the idea of being a Mama to 2 boys. I honestly don't think I'm equipped to handle teenage girls anyway, so I think this is a blessing in disguise! The only trouble is, we had a girly name all picked out, and now baby is nameless. We're open to suggestions - a name that's unique, but not too much so. I like names that you've certainly heard before, but ones that you don't hear to often. There will be no strange spellings of said name, no y's where i's should be, or similar shenanigans!

And while I was initially disappointed about having to bypass the pink section in the fabric store for the rest of my life, I decided to hell with it, I'm going to buy it all anyway and sew to my heart's content, and then just sell it all for millions of dollars! Plus I decided today to start a quilt for the Cheese in chocolate brown and red, and that's SO NOT green and blue, and that gets me just a little bit excited!

So here's to Happy Birthdays, and happy bouncing baby boys!

Boys are awesome. Juliette is amazing too of course, but she's 4 months old ans she's already all drama ;)
Boy name ideas: Finn, Milo, Kai, Henry, Gaius (this one was ALMOST Quinn's name - I love it)

We liked Sebastian - then found out a bunch of our friends had just had boys names Sebastian. No one you know however so I say go for it.

I must say that I love Kai as a name as well. Sebastien is sweet too though.
