There's a rumbly in my tummy

And its not because I'm hungry!

Its a boy and he'll be making his appearance on June 8th!

Our boy will be the 12th grandson on the Patterson side, we are thrilled to have tons of cousins for our little guy to play with, including the 4 wonderful girls bringing the grand total to 16! He'll be the first grandchild on Trevor's side of the family and they are excited. Trevor's sister Randi is expecting her first baby just a couple of months after our boy is born, which we are looking forward too. We are so happy to have two little ones so close in age.

The first trimester was pretty easy. I never felt very sick, mostly tired (thus the blog lack) but other than that I've felt great. Second trimester has been great too, I've probably struggled more with crazy emotions (pointless weeping and wicked mood swings) and tiredness again. All of which is a million times worse for Trevor. but he is the best, ever. He's always there when I need a hug and so reassuring when my doubts arise. And so patient when I'm unreasonable. Dad's should win a special award for putting up with moms while they are pregnant. I couldn't ask for a better companion. I'm excited to have his baby and be a family.

The first time I felt him move was during the NCAA National Championship between Alabama and Texas on January 7th. I'm almost 23 weeks, growing more each day and feeling every little squirm. He's getting stronger and kicks me hard enough that its sometimes a tad uncomfortable.

Trevor and I have talked about some names, we have a few we like, but I'm wary to share. It seems everyone has an opinion, and honestly, I don't need to hear all the different ones. Trevor and I will decided for sure once we see his little face and announce it after he's born!
