It's a Boy!

NOTICE: I'm currently working on a blog re-design so things are moving around a little bit in the next day or two! I changed my blog name and all links from Be Like The Fox to Chaos Parade. Doing a little bit of rebranding ;)

Somehow I ended up taking an unexpected hiatus from blogging, and truthfully, it's been awesome. It was nice to spend some time away from the computer (aside from this awful philosophy class...) and more time just reading and learning and growing bigger every day. I'm over five months along now! We found out the gender of our little one two days before Christmas, so we surprised both of our families on Christmas day!

I've known before I became pregnant that I would go the natural route, but reading a lot about it has cemented that decision and I couldn't be more excited! Mentally preparing for this change in our lives has become something I make time for every day. I ride in silence in the car a lot. :) After we found out we were having a boy, the next day I wanted to text Corey and be like, "WE'RE HAVING A BABY!" Of course everyone already knows this, but finding out the gender has made it all so real!

I'd like to say I'm poking out a little bit for cheesy pictures' sake, but I've already gained twenty pounds. My midwife said that after the holidays I should try to "cut back" and basically told me I need to go on a diet! I'm not really stressing out about weight gain, but I have been zero percent active since becoming pregnant and it bothers me a lot. That's what new year resolutions are for, riiight?! Anyway, I just wanted to update all of the people who don't yet follow me on Instagram with the news! 

Our Levi Gamble is due on May 9th, 2014 and we are so excited. :)
