adventures of an american housewife in the south of france

Oh Boy!

It's a boy!!! Not for me, sillies, for my sister and her husband!  Today Tori found out the sex of the baby and IT. IS. A. BOY. 

already making my etsy shopping list

This is pretty big news for my family.  We've never really "had boys."  Growing up, it was always me, my sister, and my Mom with my poor Dad cowering in the corner asking if he could please, just please switch over from Entertainment Tonight for one quick second to check the score of the game?  After we told him he was being ridiculous and there was really no good reason he couldn't just go check the T.V. upstairs to see the score, we would continue to watch whatever we wanted and boss him around.  It was a pretty awesome life.  Then, 12 years ago when I moved out, my grandmother moved in with my parents.  So you see, it's always been a houseful of women over at Huffman HQ and I have to say, we've all been pretty vocal about how exciting it would be to add another girl to our family.

that's a lotta estrogen in one house
But a boy!!!  We are all so excited.  The truth is, we don't care what it is as long as it's a healthy baby.  I am so excited about getting another nephew and the first boy on my side of the family.  I can't wait to see how everyone falls in love with this little person that we are all so anxious to meet.   You're halfway there, Baby B!

 Congrats Tori and Patrick!

    Congrats to your family! You should share some of your Etsy wishes for your sister. I have no clue what’s out there for boys and sometimes worry that when it’s my time there will be a boy and I won’t know what to do. haha
