ITS A ...

drum roll please...

WE ARE SHOCKED! But also SO excited! (to say the least)

Susan, who did the sonogram, said right away "do you want to know what it is?"

We answered yes

She said "there IT is.. its a BOY!"

our jaws dropped. And I couldn't stop laughing. We couldn't believe it. We would have sworn up & down (and all around) that it was a girl!

But there IT was - Clear As Day! Its a boy!!

the next thing out of our mouths..

Freeland: " I am going to have a Son" ... 20 seconds later: "wait, we don't have any boy names"

Yep! All we could ever think of were girl names! (we've always loved the name Charlie since we were dating. And then Piper is the other name we love.)

So now back to the drawing board. I'll keep you posted. :)

Thanks for playing along with us and voting! It was so fun to see what everyone thought it was. We feel so loved by all the phone calls, texts, emails, etc. that we received! Thank you friends!

I guess I need to go buy pee pee teepee's now.

  2. ABSOLUTELY, pee pee tee-pees are very helpful during those first few weeks!!! Now, I haven't been peed on in quite a while!

    You're going to be a great boy-Mama.

  9. Congratulations! How exciting! When we went for my sonogram we both thought it was a little girl and were pleasantly surprised to find out that we were having a son. Little boys are the best!

  10. Congratulations! I have been following your blog for a year or so and I love it! We had a baby boy in April- we had many disagreements over boy names. My husband wanted Van, I did not.We agreed on Brody! You will love it!
    Congrats again!

  11. For arranged marriage purposes - I was excited about a girl. But for MOST AWESOME TYPE OF CHILD EVER - I'm STOKED for your boy.

    And I'm with Katie. I love the throw-back to Chisum.

    Also, if you don't feel like coughing up the cash for the pee pee teepees ... nursing pads work like a charm. They also make great coasters. And stop drafts coming through doorways. In fact, I haven't found anything they can't do.

    Congratulations, you two. We are so excited for y'all!

  12. Awesome!! I'm so excited for you both. Little boy Ackley is going to be so cute!!! I think boy names are easier to find than girls (not that we're searching) because you always know that one girl that ruins a name for you.

  14. I voted boy!!! You are going to love having a little boy, but FYI we bought pee pee tee pee's and we would put them on and Charlie would just shoot them off into the air with his pee pee. It became a pee pee rocket. Anyways, so excited for you all, this is Such an exciting time! Oh, don't throw the name Charlie out yet, it is such a cute name :)

  18. But its so great that you KNOW now, and you can move forward with names and boy stuff! I was going to be REAL jealous if it was a girl. Thats what I want. What the hay am I supposed to do with ANOTHER boy?! :)

  22. Yay! Welcome to the wonderful world of boys. About pee pee tee-pees...I always had a spare washcloth handy to throw over them during diaper changes and before baths those first few weeks. But even with that, I still got sprayed by both of my boys! Ha ha.
    Congrats, Brooke!
