gender reveal sign

Christian and I found out the gender of this little baby, and we were holding onto the information until we could tell our family and close friends.  SO, I’ve just been waiting to take some photos to share with you guys, and we just snapped these the other day so I could finally spill the beans!

I had a hunch around 11 weeks what the gender might be from an ultrasound in San Francisco… and I’m certainly not a sonogram expert but I actually turned out to be right!

Without further chatter, baby Barnes is a…

We are having a precious little boy!  I have some videos I’ve taken and saved along the way talking about our little fellow that I’ll be sharing today on Instagram.  I think it will be really special for our oldest to be our son, hopefully being a protective big brother of his future sibling(s).

We have narrowed it down to two names and still can’t commit to one, but I’m hoping we will soon!  I have big plans for his nursery and bought him his first few pieces of clothing (other than all the hand-me-downs from his many cousins) in Paris.  Something about actually choosing and purchasing knit cardigans and pants for this little boy made it just feel all the more real.

He’s moving around every day and thankfully I’m still feeling great around the corner from the third trimester.  Most days I forget I’m even pregnant which is kind of a problem because I need to kick it into gear to prepare for his November arrival!

Thank you so much for sharing in this joy with us.  You can check out our first baby announcement here and my results to old wives tales relating to gender here.  Thank you for reading and for being a part of this incredibly special journey.  I always learn so much from you guys and am so appreciative that you choose to connect with me here on this site!  Big hugs and lots of love – XO –

  1. So exciting!!! Okay, truth be told I would’ve been excited regardless of the gender but it’s so fun finally finding out! Congrats to you both again!! (Also these pics are adorable)

  2. YAY!!! I had a hunch it was a boy from that first ornament…

    I’m due Nov 27 with a boy & I’m embarrassed how excited I am about this. Congratulations! You’ll have to share some of the cute boy clothes you buy!

  3. Yay!! Congratulations!! We just had a little (JK he was 10 lbs) boy last September, Joshua, and I will never forget my mom saying “Every girl deserves to have an older brother” so had always hoped he was a boy! The first few months were tough, but definitely made my relationship with my husband even stronger. Hope all goes well!!

  4. Congratulations!! Boys are SO sweet. Wishing you the best as this little one keeps growing.

  5. Yay!!!!!! As a #BoyMom to two beautiful boys, this makes me sooo happy for you both! Wishing you all the best!! xoxo

  6. Just here for the gender reveal! So happy for you! Our second child was a “boy”, too……painted the room blue, but I just could not decide on a name and said I’d have to see him for myself to decide. Good thing because it ended up being a GIRL! My Maggie had the sweetest boy room 🙂

  7. HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS!! Little girl, Maren, on the way for us in Nov as well. Love this bump! Seems like you do too! Cant wait to hear his name.

  8. I just have to say when I found out I was having a boy 4 years ago I had no idea what to think since my family is mostly girls. Fast forward 4 years and I’m so in love with my little guy. They love love their moms, like really love their moms and I think that is what makes having a boy first extra special!! Congrats, you will be a great boy mom!!

  9. Congrats! So happy for you both! A boy was my guess by the way you are carrying. We have 2 girls and I looked very round! Best of luck with everything. I will be following!

  10. Congratulations baby boys are sweet I have one daughter and two boys !!! Boys usually adore their mommies … yours will for sure

  11. Yaayyy!! Congrats! I’m beyond excited because we are both pregnants with the almost the same due date and I had a hunch that you were expecting a boy because I have felt the same symptoms than you!!!
    Congrats on this big adventure, can’t wait to see our progress as the weeks pass by!

  12. A boy for Christian to take camping and fishing! (Maybe!) but boys are good for mamas too! So happy for you!

  13. Congratulations! Bebe Boy Barnez! I’m stupidly happy for you two! Can’t wait to “meet” him. Ok now we just need a car reveal from Christian.

  14. Congratulations! My little girl has the same giraffe. We have named her Lady Penelope Josephine. Clearly because she is a regal animal. Her bear, like the one you have is named Roscoe. We come up with names and back stories for all if her animals.

  15. You are going to love being a #boymom!! I only have four months of experienc, but my little man owns my soul + I hear boys love their mamas no matter what. ❤️ Congrats!
