The Twins are…Boys! 💙💙
Today I am 15 weeks + 5 days. I wanted to update on the babies’ genders ASAP, plus my sister is getting married this weekend in Tahoe so we are on vacation starting tomorrow- yay!
Saturday we had our long awaited gender reveal at my parents house. We had went the Wednesday before to get the ultrasound to determine the sexes and it was hard, because we couldn’t really watch the entire time. We did get to hear heartbeats (both at 150) and the tech said she was 100% sure on the twins’ gender. She gave us an envelope to give to the baker and that was it- we had to wait 3 days to Saturday!
I had a feeling after the ultrasound i was having boys. The fact that she said she was 100% sure just seemed to mean boys to me! Matt was still convinced we were having girls.
My mom and sister did such a good job putting together the reveal for us. Everyone was so excited and happy to see that we are having boys! We don’t have a a lot of boys in the fam 🙂 to be honest, I have never thought of myself as a boy mom- but I truly feel we are all given what we are meant to have. I feel so lucky to have the chance to be pregnant, to have the chance to carry TWO babies, and to have these boys!
We have also already chosen names! Matt and I are not keeping them a secret (it’s not my style to be a secret keeper after all!) the boys names are:
Zayden Lennox Allen (this has ALWAYS been our boy name. We’ve had it for years! Lennox is matts middle name and is an Allen family name. Zayden-Zade for short, has always been a fav of ours!)
Noah Stephens Allen ( Noah is one of the few boy names Matt and I have been able to agree on, so it was easy to pick right away that would probably be baby boy #2 name! Stephens is for Dr. Stephens 😊 it was always very important to us to honor her by giving one of the twins a middle name after her! We had a close relationship with her and she helped us make our dreams a reality!)
So we’re having boys and they have names and this is all real! 16 weeks in and I still can’t believe this is happening for us. 💙 here are some pics of the gender reveal- hope everyone has a good week!
