Gender reveal – it’s a boy!

You may be rejoicing now! How exciting it is to have that bouncing baby boy in your arms. As early as now, you may be thinking of the feel of his soft skin and tiny body while looking ahead on how he will transform into a boy, and man of strength and courage. You might be thinking of the skills and the virtues that you will teach him to mold him into a person of value. That was only now, but you are already planning many activities you can do with your boy.

Yes, girls’ dresses and hair ribbons are lovable. But little boys’ pants and tiny shirts are equally cute and adorable. No long hair to shampoo or comb, boy’s hair is low maintenance. Boys’ energy level is always high. You can now think of all the sports and outdoor activities that he may love doing – running, hiking, cycling, basketball, football and more. The possibility seems endless. To a mother, having a baby boy is like seeing a glimpse of how his husband looks and acts when he was young. Making him his daddy’s mini-me is such a cute idea and you can’t wait to do it.

Almost everything is also being prepared. The nursery is painted in light blue. Blankets, pillows and the crib is also in the shade of blue. You will soon buy booties and socks, as well as mittens and onesies and other baby supplies to fit in your little boy.

Are you ready to welcome your cuddly mama’s boy? How will you call him? What name are you going to give him?

Giving an appropriate name is such a challenging task. You can never go wrong, your baby might feel awkward in the future. How can you give him a name? Will you choose one from appealing celebrity names? Or do you want it to be inspired by your likes and interests? Or you opt to start with your favorite letter?

Why not give him the name Koda? Sounds interesting? What does the name mean?
