My grand-baby-to-be is a boy.

I felt a sense of relief and excitement all at once. And I immediately let my guard down and fell in love.

I have been pretending to be OK with the fact I was convinced she was carrying a girl- all the while envisioning myself having a nervous breakdown at the hospital when I hold that baby dressed in pink for the first time. I was afraid I would not love her like I love her brother (and I am so in love with that little boy!). I did not know ifhow I would handle it. I was scarred shitless.

Since finding out he is in fact a boy, I have not felt any anxiety. I have felt nothing but love, and I can feel myself becoming bonded already.

I can not wait to meet this little guy.

I am so glad you don't have to deal with the baby being a girl. I know that would have been hard for you. Congrats on the baby boy. I have three nephews, and they are a ton of fun.
