In case you haven’t heard (hey, I’ve been busy) it is official, we will be welcoming a baby boy into the world come late March 2014. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have learned that our baby is healthy but then to find out we will be having a boy was just icing on the cake. George, Abbey and I are all so happy. Abbey’s big sister duties have already started to sink in, now it is just a matter of time to get her to start referring to him as his name instead of “Squishy” but that will take time.
Speaking of the name, George and I have been hanging on to this name even before finding out that we were having Abbey. Some are disappointed that we won’t be going the “Luke Skywalker” route but I just couldn’t do that. Our baby boy will be named, Jack Edward Herron, after great men in our lives. The very first time we were pregnant we thought this was be such a great boy name mainly because George’s Grandpa ‘Jack’ Kiesewetter and my Grandpa Edward Ottopal. Not too mention that my great Uncle Jack whom Abbey adores and George’s Grandpa Shirley Edward Herron. Meant to be!
We had a great time finding out that we were having a boy with another very fun reveal party. Our friend, Rick, was again honored to be the responsible party who would know the sex and make sure the reveal came together. This time we made it easier on him and decided to opt out of the confetti portion, not too mention it was in my house versus the shelter in Sharonville.
There were LOTS of people that were wearing blue including George who was pretty much covered in it head to toe. I cheated and wore both colors but hey, that’s what mom’s do, we don’t pick sides.
I can’t tell everyone enough at how much we appreciate the support and love. So many friends and family were there celebrating the reveal and I know that our sweet Jack Edward will be so loved.
Had to share the box that was painted by Abbey and I for the reveal, she did a fantastic job!
