Brothers

There is a part of me that is relieved that we are expecting another boy.  There are several reasons, the first is the money it will save us.  We have all boy stuff and therefore don't have to buy much.  The third bedroom in our house is much smaller and absolutely does NOT have the space to house a little girl... especially with my mom's shopping addiction.  I'm pretty sure it would only take one of those cute little tutu's to require additional closet space.  

I'm also excited by the thought that Case and Ty will grow up so close.  I guess there's a part of me that's assuming that them being only 17 months apart will make them close because they will always be experiencing nearly the same things at the same times in life.  But my newest reason to be excited to be having another boy is that I can dress them alike!  Yes I know this is probably more acceptable with two girls but given my history I'm pretty sure I'm destined for boys so they are just going to have to be patient with their momma!  I hadn't thought about how much fun this will be until my mom came over the other day with a few matching outfits for them.  Now it's just one more reason for me to be excited to have another little man in the house:-)

I love the matching outfits!!
That's one part I love about two little boys. While you might not be able to do the little dresses & bows, they can look pretty darn cute when dressed alike on occasion.

This is also helpful when they are a bit older & your little one wants a shirt "just like his!". I feel like I buy a lot of matching jammies & firetruck shirts these days. :)
