That's right little guy, you are our Landon Brian Koehler. LBK. We know you're in there. And boy, oh boy, do we love you more than ever! I have never seen your daddy so happy than the hours and days following our big gender reveal party. He has been hoping and praying for a son, and you are the answer to his prayers. And mommy's too- no doubt about it. I cannot wait to have a mama's boy (in all of the good ways) and help you grow into a dashing little gentleman.
|Our Little Pumpkin's a BOY!!!|
We went to the ultrasound on a Saturday morning (the appointment was at 11:00 AM), and the ultrasound tech was the nicest lady ever. We told her about the party we were having to tell the family if you were a boy or a girl at 1:00 (just 2 hours later), and she said "Well then we've got to figure this out. No pressure, huh guys?" But she was great. She triple-checked to make sure she was right, and she made mommy and daddy super excited every time she had us look away because we wanted to wait to find out with everyone else. But we still got to see you from lots of different angles.

You are sure getting big in there, little buddy! She predicted that you will be 23 inches when you are born because you had the longest arms and legs. This makes daddy even happier though, because he can't wait to start teaching you sports and agility and drills to become an all-star athlete.
|Trick or Treat? Blue or Pink?|
Anyways, mommy made a boy and a girl pumpkin, and we had the ultrasound tech go in a back room and put the right pumpkin in the box. We had the family come over, and everyone signed up to guess what you were going to be. The majority of people said you'd be a boy- so I guess they were right!
Once everyone got there, we opened the box in front of the family. Daddy immediately pumped his fist into the air, and was so thrilled. I was so happy to finally know more about who you are in there, and to start planning things for you!
Literally, as soon as everyone left the party, Daddy and I went to Babies-R-Us and we got you your nursery bedding, blankets, changing pad cover, and some puppy rattles and toys. Your nursery is going to be the sports and puppies theme, and we're going to paint the walls light blue, and I think we're going to get a brown crib and dresser set for you. We're still trying to figure out where to get you some good, safe furniture from right now.
|Your bedding- sports & puppies!|
The next day, Mommy went to Marshall's and Target and I got you some more puppy blankets that are so soft and cozy, and an Ohio State Buckeyes outfit so you'll be ready for football in the fall. Daddy said it was a great purchase. He can't wait to have a little sports buddy, so I hope you'll like sports. I'm betting you will though- every man in the family seems to, but if you don't that's okay too. I'm sure you'll be perfect no matter what.

|Your first Buckeye's outfit- O-H!|
|Mommy and you in Denver!|
I can't wait to have Mommy and me time with you, little guy. I promise I'll try to be the best mama, and support you in all your interests, take you to play and see fun things around Cleveland, and teach you how to be polite and smart and fun to be around. And when you start to date, I'll teach you how to be the guy everyone wants to date, haha.
Love you, little Landon,
Mommy <3 xoxo
