Here we go again….

First off, Rene’ who was lucky number #74 and has a lovely blog, is my lucky scraps /blocks winner.  All I can say Rene’ is good luck. Second, I found out I’m having a…. IMG_1328 BOY!!  This will be our second little boy.  We knew it was a boy before the ultrasound tech even mentioned it  when we saw him form his little hand into a gun…..yep…totally boy. IMG_1330 Luckily I have a good stash of my favorite discontinued boy fabrics by American Jane.  I want to make a quilt that somewhat matches the quilt I made for Ben.   That way if they share a room they’ll match, and heaven forbid they don’t match {insert husband eye roll here}.

    Congrats on the boy! I sometimes call that a high five to my patients (I'm a self-employed US tech). Also, on many occasions, the boy bambinos are trying to pick their nose or scratch (something). It's just too obvious sometimes, ya know. xo, suzy

    My little boy 'mooned' us to let us know he was a boy- it looked like someone who xeroxed his butt. Congrats!

    Congratulations! I about spit coffee on the computer with the gun comment, though!

    as mentioned by others Congratulations! If this little one's quilt is half as nice as Ben's – it will certainly be a beautiful quilt!

    Nothing in the world as sweet at a little boy. As I told my son and his wife when they found out the second one was a boy, maybe the next one will be a girl!! It worked that way for me.

    Congratulations on your wonderful news!!!! Boys are so much fun!!! I have two boys (now 21 and 17) and a daughter (10). Love the fabric for the boy quilt.

    THANK YOU for the scraps/blocks fabric. I was so excited when I checked my email this morning (still have laptop issues – got my new one yesterday and have been transferring files…STILL). I hope to do them justice.

    Enjoy your weekend, and again THANKS.

    Congratulations Allison on your new addition. This must be the year for boys. Both of my daughters had boys within the last year. YAY! I love your blog. Thanks for sharing.

    congratulations….i love the gun hand!!!those fabrics are going to make a wonderful little man quilt.

    Congratulations… I have two boys, too! I am sure I would be broke buying pink fabrics to sew skirts if I had a girl…boys are so easy jeans or khakis and solid shirt. Soon enough you will find yourself immersed in the world of legos, trains and star wars!

  19. Libby November 7, 2009 at 2:01 pm #

    WOO HOO! Your son will love having a brother!! Congrats!

  20. everydaychaos November 7, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

    Congratulations! How perfect! Your new little baby will be born with a best friend just waiting for him! Among my other kids, I have two boys close together in age, and I love it. They fight, they wrestle, they race, and they worship each other. It's too fun.

    I add my congrats! My son-in-law comes from a family with three boys right in a row, close together, they love it! It will be so fun…I love my two boys too, and always wished they could have been closer together.
    Hey after looking at Ben's quilt I have a suggestion for you. Have you been to Bonnie Hunters site…I am sure you have…Anyway you might want to consider her crayon box quilt.
    We did that one for our last grandson, it is way cute and goes together speedy fast!

    Congratulations! Two boys–so much fun!

  31. Heather November 7, 2009 at 5:44 pm #

    congratulations. i surely thought our third was a boy–a little buddy for our big boy, but she was a girl. The big sister was super happy and big brother is quite protective. Have fun with your little buddies.

  34. Tracy Suzanne November 7, 2009 at 7:47 pm #

    Congratulations! I always love hearing baby news. Such happy thoughts. I love the ultrasound picture with him playing cowboys or cops! That should go in a cowboy scrapped frame. I look forward to seeing the new quilt.

    Hugs…Tracy :)

    Congrats!! You're the second person who announced they're having a boy today lol I adore those American Jane fabrics… I have some stashed away for my future babies since most of their stuff is quite gender neutral :)

  36. amandacathleen November 7, 2009 at 8:14 pm #

    Yay boy!! Looks like he'll have a fab quilt too, like there was any question about it.

  37. Trisha November 7, 2009 at 8:26 pm #

    Congrats! So exciting! And the hand in the form of a gun in utero, priceless.

    Congratulations!!! My boys are 1 and 4, and they are so much fun!! You will love having two boys!
    I love your fabrics too! It's making me want to re-do my boys' rooms!

  52. Barbara Myltschenko November 10, 2009 at 1:51 pm #

    Congrats, congrats! We're having our ultrasound today but I'm resisting the temptation to find out what it is! I feel boy, and well my 3 year old son feels the same way, but we'll see. I love being a boy mom! And good for you for matching the quilts, a girl after my own heart.

  53. Christina November 11, 2009 at 3:34 pm #

    Congrats! Brice has so much fun playing with his half brother, so i'm sure Ben and his new brother will have a great time together.
