Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas holiday surrounded by your loved ones! I wanted to go back to the 23rd and tell yall briefly about my US appt! Everything went well. Yay!! We got to see peanut and it was already so cute and formed. Ahhh.. If only I could reach into the screen and hug it!! It wiggled around and was giving the nurse a hard time because she was trying to get some measurement of the heart. My child was being bad..already! =) She said baby weighed about 11 oz so that’s good. The heart chambers and brain looked good, the HB was pumping excellent. What a relief. Ultimately… that’s all you want to hear.. is that your baby is doing well! Then she had us turn our heads on the moment of truth. The moment when she was about to “go down” and see if peanut was a princess or prince. So we did and she wrote in on a card my friend made for me and we sealed it up in an envelope with a Christmas bow on it. So the 23rd.. the 24th… yea… seemed pretty long to me. lol. But finally.. Christmas came and we opened it up when we got together with my family and yup… big letters.. BOY !! We hugged, cried, laughed and just smiled the whole time. I… CAN’T…BELIEVE… THIS.. IS.. REALLY .. HAPPENING!!!!
I’M GOING TO HAVE A SON!!! < ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! >
I feel bad though... because I actually had a TIIIIINY moment of sadness (if that’s what you want to call it) because I would’ve liked to have a little girl. Only because I had been shopping for Christmas and for my baby niece and there was just soooo many cute dresses!! And I pictured my girl dressed up in a holiday dress next year. But then I snapped out of it and was like “DIANA.. SERIOUSLY?!?! ARE U SERIOUSLY SAD THAT IT’S A BOY?? YOU’VE WANTED THIS FOR A LONG TIME!! DON’T BE PICKY DAMMIT!!” =) Then I started thinking of little boys and even as I type, my heart melts and I have a huuuuuuge smile on my face. I can’t wait for my baby boy. I can’t wait for the adventures he will have with Ernest. He’s going to be sooooo loved. It’s going to be ridiculous of how much love he’s going to receive from us. =)
Names? Yes we have a name… already!! =) Butttt I won’t tell yall til he’s born. Hehehe.. JUST KIDDING. I’m always skeptical.. well I can’t really say ALWAYS because this is the first time I have a child to name. LOL. But you know how it is with names.. you say a name and wait for the reaction of the person you’re telling and sometimes it’s a good reaction.. and sometimes it’s like “blank face” LOL.. even with myself. I’m super careful with not making fun or bringing someone down because of a name they choose. Except for Mariah Carey.. now her.. I would’ve straight up told her.. what the ****?!?! Moroccan and Monroe… nicknamed.. ROC & ROE… really?!?! Really Mariah!?!?
::sigh:: to each his own, right??
Anywho… so our baby boy’s name will be…. Dun dun dun…
Ahhhhhhh… doesn’t Mateo just sound powerful?? =) We BOTH love the name MATTHEW. And well being from a latin family and having lots of family around, we decided to cherish the name of MATTHEW in Spanish form and embrace our heritage. You know how some can be named MIGUEL and they either call him that or Michael? Well it’s the same for this. Mateo or Matthew. Whatever they wanna say. I LOVE BOTH ACTUALLY. =)
Ohhhhh but the kicker is.. ready for this?? MATTHEW means… “GIFT OF GOD”
::insert tears here:: HOW… PERFECT… IS.. THAT .. NAME?!?! I mean.. seriously… this baby to us IS a gift of God.
Ernesto is my husband’s middle name. His name is Jose Ernesto but we call him Ernest. So we went ahead and put it as our son’s middle name as well. Although…. I will NOT be calling him LIL ERNEST!!!!!! No no no no no!! lol.
::looks down at tummy:: I can’t wait to hold you Mateo ♥
So there you have it ladies.. my latest and greatest update so far. I hit 20 weeks yesterday so I’m half way there. =) Hopefully my next 20 treat me just as great as my first.
XOXO to all !!
