Boys, Boys, Boys....

We are pretty much almost there with the preparations for our little guy. I remember at the beginning of the pregnancy people would ask me what I wanted, a girl or a boy? I really didn't know. I really didn't care which one I guess. Tyler said from the beginning that he knew it was a boy, but I thought he would be wrong just because he seemed so "sure" about it. I remember his mom sent us some OU onesies and I thought, "could I still put a girl in those?" I remember not being sure which I wanted more a girl or a boy. There seemed to be so much more clothes for girls in the stores. When we found out we were having a boy, Tyler's first words were "That's right!" I remember being excited, but over time I have become even more excited and now I just can't wait :)

My mam sent me this picture from Bev's wedding and I just thought it was hilarious.

It's my 4 nephews in deep conversation with the bar tender at the restauraunt following the wedding. I think it's so funny that the four of them are sitting up at the bar, with their little suits on. My mam said "they looked like 4 little old men"...hahaha. These 4 little guys are so adorable! They each have their own individual personality and each of them are hilarious in their own little way. We miss living close to them and can't wait for them to meet our little guy so they can teach him all the tricks of the trade.

Here are the same boys with Tyler at our wedding. They are getting this whole wedding thing down at this stage in the game.

When these boys are older, we will all have nothing but good memories of their younger years. A few that come to mind are:

-Ryan drawing on his newborn sisters head with a sharpie...not good. lol.
-Gavin replacing the word "truck" with a similar swear word when he was learning how to talk.
-Tyrone locking himself in his room and falling into such a deep sleep that his mom thought he was passed out and took a hammer to the door to open it.
-Jacob doing kung fu panda and smashing his face on the edge of a table. Cool scar though ;)


  1. I'm so excited for you. Boys are where it's at IMO. :) Ryan used to use the other word for truck as well lol. Awesome.

  2. Jake used that word for truck also and Ben replaced fork with that same word. Boys are so fun!

  3. Great post Trudi! BOYS RULE!!! I loved having a boy first. I kinda wish we had a older brother sometimes. I had a great chuckle reading the memories of the boy cousins. The list could go on and on. Can't wait to see me little nephew.

  4. seriously - I love this post. Love the pictures too. Can't believe we'll have another litte boy soon to add to the rugby team!
