Finally, a baby boy!

We've done the ultrasound for gender determination and it's a BOY! Finally :)

Now we're thinking about a name that will complete the archangels that we now have- Gabrielle and Rafaelle. Most probably it will be a variation of daddy's name Michael. We're thinking of Mikael with a first name that also starts with A, which we cannot decide on yet. But Ate Gabbie has given a nickname for our baby boy already, and it's Mack. "With CK, not C, not K, but CK" in her own words.

She has actually started writing notes for her baby brother. One morning, after school, she went to me and handed me a piece of paper. Written there is her first ever message for her baby brother.

In a few days, we will be having a big sister shower for Rafa this time although we think that it's really too early for her to understand anything about being a big sister. But she knows that there's a baby inside mommy's tummy and she calls him "Macky".

Baby Mack is expected to say hello to the world in the first half of April. I have already started shopping for baby clothes, and I realized it brings a different exciting feeling that I am now looking at blue shirts, blue socks, blue mittens and blankets, etc. I want to say I can't wait to see you soon Mack but I know that you have to take your sweet time inside mommy's tummy and I pray for your health and wellness and complete and normal development and of course, uneventful delivery. We love you Macky :)
