Yep…blue balloons!

On Tuesday we had our mid-pregnancy ultrasound, and we were thrilled to discover that Baby Ehman is a boy! Okay, shocked and terrified might have crossed our minds too. What do we do with a baby boy?! This all new territory for us, so we’ll definitely be learning as we go.

Afterward we met Krystal Griffin, a Life Your Way contributor and friend, for a gender reveal photo shoot with the girls, and I can’t wait to share the story and some more pictures with you (watch for those early next week!).

We’re definitely enjoying knowing a little more about our newest addition, and it’s fun to think of the baby as “he” instead of “it”! It also turns out that having the first boy grandchild is as big a deal as having the first grandchild was, and our collection of blue clothing is growing quickly!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!

Family {Summer of Learning}

Life {Be Intentional}

Food {Summer Bounty}

And because it never hurts to share this again, be sure to read this post before your next to the beach or pool: Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning. And our story of experiencing this last year, exactly as he described: What Drowning Really Looks Like.

Have a great weekend!
