[BOY MOMS] Della from Della Devoted

Monday, December 22, 2014

Hi Everyone, I'm Della and I blog over at Della Devoted. I left the working world to be a stay at home mom. Best decision I have ever made! I'm a Christian, a wife and a #boymom to a 10 month old. I love to bake, read and a good DIY project. On my blog you can find anything from devotionals to DIY projects as well as recipes and of course baby posts.

After going through such a hard time getting pregnant, then getting pregnant with twins that ended with a terrible miscarriage, my husband and I were finally going to have a baby...We were having a precious baby! I just couldn't believe the miracle that was taking place in our lives.

I had secretly hoped that I was having a boy. I grew up around all boys and I just knew more of what to expect from them. In my head I had it planned out that I should have a little boy first, that way he could protect his little sister.  Justin thought for sure that we were having a girl, but i just knew in my heart that our baby was a boy. We found out early at 16 weeks, that in fact, we were having a boy--Raylan

After waiting through 38 weeks and 2 days of my pregnancy, 22 hours in labor and a C-section, Raylan was finally here...

It was the happiest day of my life. I knew right then and there that I was always meant to be a mom. I would spend the rest of my life being a protector to Raylan and being the best mom that I could possibly be.

If you find out that you are having a boy, here are a few things that you can expect:

  • Little boys are always momma's boys. I can't get out of Raylan's sight for 5 minutes without him wanting his mom mom

  • They will be your best friend
  • They give the best hugs and kisses
  • They are mischievous and are always into everything but what boy isn't
  • They love to make messes and get dirty
  • You will need to take extra precautions anytime you have that diaper off!
  • You can still dress little  boys just as adorable as little girls

  • There are so many things that you can do with little boys. For instance, my husband races so naturally he will want to take Raylan to the races when he gets a little bigger
  • You can guess that his nursery is done in cars as well....

So If you are having a little boy, don't think that it will be boring. I have not had a dull moment since the day Raylan has been born. Raylan keeps me on my toes but I truly wouldn't have it any other way. I'm so thankful that God chose me to be his mom.

I'm the one who is blessed! Raylan has taught me the true meaning of love and what it truly means to be happy. Every morning when Raylan wakes up, he is always smiling at me. He is such a happy baby. I love to hear him laugh. It melts my heart. This little boy is my whole world. He is my miracle. I couldn't thank God enough for him. So I may be biased, but I think little boys are the best.
