    Wow, over a hundred comments already! You have inspired me to plan my 65 before 65. I have 14 months. It’s nice you are having a boy. One of each is good. I loved your hair red. Ann

    Very fun! I’m due with a girl next month after 2 little boys. Can’t wait for all the girlishness. I hear boys and girls are very different from the get-go. I know my boys are a little wild and crazy, but I sure do love them! I’m sure you guys will have a blast with one of each!

    Congratulations! You are very blessed to have one of each! My sister just had a little boy 12 days ago and her daughter just turned two before the baby was born. This kind of reminds me of your little family now! I love being an aunty! Congrats again!

    You can see my little nephew here:

    Congrats, omg! As someone who grew up with a brother who was very close to her in age (I’m 14 months older than him), it’s an absolutely wonderful situation to have. My brother and I fought a lot when we were kids, but as we got older we got closer and closer – he got me interested in a lot of “boy” things (to this day I still like video games and ninja turtles, haha), and I managed to rub some of my “girl” traits off on him (he still takes me shopping to help him pick out clothes, which is insane). We actually ended up in the same grade in High School (he got skipped up), and so most people we know think we’re twins – and honestly, it feels more like we’re twins. Something about having a sibling so close in age is great, like constantly having a friend around.

    …Anyway, that was a huge ramble. But I’m so thrilled for you! I hope Eleanor has the same awesome experience with her brother as I’ve had with mine. :)

    This is so amazing. My son is 2 and I’m expecting my second as well around the same time you’re due (Feb 16 for me). We just found out that we’re having a girl! Supposedly, there’s only a 20% chance of having the opposite gender, so it’s pretty amazing that this has occurred fairly frequently lately (I have 3 friends who had second children recently or are expecting second children and are all having the opposite gender!).

    While it would have been equally awesome for you to have another girl, it’s going to be exciting to have one of each ;-) I look forward to ‘meeting’ the little Mr. when he arrives, but till then, I hope you have a fabulous rest of the pregnancy!
    P.S. I had my first child, a boy, 4.5 months ago, and he’s clingy, but so delicious ;-)

    YAY! Congratulations! Boys are so much fun! However, there are not nearly as many adorable boy clothes as girl clothes {that I have found yet}, so I can’t wait to see what you come up with because you have such incredible taste!

    oh, you’ll love having a son! and, goody for us, now we get to see you Make it Lovely for a boy! I’ve got two boyos myself and I love it when bloggers make things for boys.

    (ps. my five year old son’s favorite color is pink. even when other boys tease him, he militantly proclaims his love for pink so he loves to look at your website.)
