Ultrasound results

We celebrated by picking up some soft little blue clothes at the thrift store.

I'm starting from scratch, since I'd given away all Andrew's baby clothes.

Warm congratulations. I enjoy reading your blog, you are so positive and thankful. I love that you combine being frugal with such beauty in everyday life. I'm not always frugal, but don't have time for a lovely tablescape. I love to see your creativity.

Natalie from Nashville said...

Congratulations, Meredith! Two boys and one girl...what a great combination!

Molly said...

Congratulations! Another little boy... how much fun is that! :)

Much congratulations!!!

Beth said...

Congratulations on your new little guy!

My kids are 12 years apart so I did not have anything saved when I got pregnant with the 2nd. But it's amazing how God provides and how many wonderful things are available through frugal sources!

Robyn said...

Congratulations!

Of course it's a boy, since you got rid of all your baby boy clothes. That's how it always works, right? :-)

pinkexplosion said...

Congratulations! Sometimes it is fun to start from scratch, we did that and we have two girls!

Donna said...

What a blessing!

Shannon@Idylwild said...

A baby brother for Andrew and ELise! Yeah! That is so exciting. Being a mom to boys is such a special priviledge (of course, being a mom to girls is too, but it's a different priviledge). You're very blessed!

Joanna said...

Aww, how exciting! Another boy!

Jane said...

Congratulations!

Congratulations. Little boys are so much fun.

Kacie said...

Yay! That's so exciting to hear! Best wishes for the remainder of your pregnancy.

I have about eight weeks until I can find out if I should be buying pink or blue...can't wait!

songbirdy said...

Congratulations! My sister-law and I once commented that you end up 'wanting' newer baby clothes even if you've saved yours because they don't store well. We've found that unless you really get the stains out (and I mean its a real deep clean) little traces come out in storage making the garments look terrible.

She had some stored from the first and could use them with the fourth but found all these spots that weren't visible when they were stored. She is a very particular laundry maven, pre-treating, hand-scrubbing, etc and was shocked to see those stains on 'her' clothes!

So 'Amen' to yard sale baby clothes, and twin sales!

congratulations! what exciting news for your family.
and a great time of year to find out the gender- lots of yard sales to hit looking for items! best wishes.

How wonderful! Your new son looks perfect in his lst picture. Take good care of yourself and don't stress over things that won't matter in 10 years. That's my philosophy. I mean, who is going to remember what you wore to a wedding, if you split a meal, etc. P

Christi said...

Yay, yay, yay, Meredith!!! Congratulations~

Jennifer said...

Congrats! I have a boy, girl, boy girl order and it works out great. My sister and I were 13 months apart and hated each other until we got married. I am hopeful that with a larger gap between my boys and between my girls they will be closer throughout life. Have fun with buying boy stuff again!

Shannon@Idylwild said...

Just in case you're taking baby name submissions...I vote for Ian. The next two could be Olivia and Ulysses and you would have A,E, I, O, and U :>
Kidding, kidding, please don't name a baby Ulysses:)

Congratulations!!

Andrea said...

Yay! A healthy baby!

As a mom of one boy, I have to say, I really enjoy having him around. His nickname, now that he's cruising and crawling, is "Crash", but I love the activity level. :)

Many prayers for a healthy, fun pregnancy.

Did you ever find a dress for the wedding?

Randi said...

Congratulations!

Amiyrah said...

That is fabulous! Congratulations on the little boy! Would have been nice to still have Andrew's baby clothes, but just think how much fun it will be to find baby boy clothes at thrift stores and yard sales this summer!

Mrs. Pivec said...

Wow! How exciting! Warmest congratulations to you! :)

Hi Meredith...

I'm coming out of lurker land a lot more lately :)

Just wanted to say congrats on your new little one being a boy. We weren't going to find out if our little honeymoon souvenir was a boy or girl, but baby made it obvious that we are going to be parents of a boy as well. Only about 9 weeks and counting to go! Thank goodness for rummage sale season being in force in WI now too!

Best wishes and keep frugal and beautiful baby ideas coming!

Margo said...

oh how wonderful!! I loved knowing the gender of my babies before they were born so I could pick out little clothes with them in mind! And baby clothes are the easiest thing to find secondhand - so satisfying to outfit a little one so frugally. Congratulations to you and your family.

VanderbiltWife said...

I am sure you get this a lot, but your blog brings me such a sense of peace. It is wonderful to see women living a simple life and loving it. I am 20 weeks pregnant myself and looking forward to staying home when my husband is done with school, despite the financial cut we might have to take. Congratulations on your newest bundle. :)

Mer, I am sorry I do not have time to read through ALL the comments to find out if you have been offered clothes, but I have a TON of baby boy blues (brand names too) that I would LOVE to give you! Send me an email with an address to send it to if you want/need it. :) paula aatt paurian doottt com
