Now don’t get me wrong, I still love my boys. I didn’t know how much I could love a little boy until Ezra was born. He is such a sweetie too and he really loves his mama. One thing I really love thinking about with having a couple of boys is thinking about when they are grown men who totally love and cherish their precious mama. They better. I picture them taller than me with deep voices, my handsome young men whose mama had their heart first. I don’t know if that makes sense to anyone but me but I get it, and it’s my dream so I guess that’s okay :)
While Eva is a girl’s girl, Ezra is truly a guy’s guy. Not yet 18-months-old and he loves trucks, cars, busses, any vehicles really, and any kind of ball. Volleyball, soccer ball, basketball, football, hockey puck (not really a ball). He sees them in the store and demands them! He is drawn to them. He also loves exploring outside. And animals. He makes the cutest “mow” sound when he sees a kitty or a picture of a kitty.
He also loves wearing shoes, which isn’t really a guy or girl trait, but it’s an Ezra trait so I thought it was worth mentioning. He sees his shoes and he wants them on. He does not want me taking his shoes off and had even thrown serious fits when I have done so. He grabs his shoes and holds them out to me, grunting, and then he walks to the steps, sits down and waits for me to put them on.
He loves when I come to “get him” and he still loves snuggling me, really cuddling into my chest. At bedtime, as soon as the fan is on he puts his head on my shoulder and I rock him and him for a few minutes. Then I just lay him down and off he goes to dreamland.
And this new guy, well, I don’t really know too much about him yet! He likes to kick, and the midwives said today that I’m measuring right on track even though I’m smaller than my other pregnancies. He is healthy and had a heartbeat of 157. I am already adjusting to the fact that I will have two little boys at home with me and have already started planning a cute boy’s nursery/shared boy’s room (even though they won’t share for a couple of years, the nursery theme can transfer over to being a shared room for both of them.)
Here I am, 20 weeks and 3 days pregnant with baby boy #2.
