Finding Out

This morning we will (hopefully) find out what we’re having. As most people know, I’m really hoping this baby will be a girl because it will be nice to have some pink and lace around here. I mean, the dogs are both girls, but their inability to see most colors makes them less excited about pink (oh sure, that shade of grey is prettier than that shade of grey), and they tend to chew up lace. I think Justin would like to have a girl, mostly because I would like a girl, but I think, again, he’s the better parent and is more interested in having a healthy baby, regardless of gender.

So I asked the boys a few months ago if they’d like a little brother or a little sister, and I got these responses:
Gavin — I want a little sister since I already have a little brother.
Cooper (in his squeaky, Elmo voice) — I no wanna sista. I wanna ‘former! (translation: I don’t want a sister. I want a transformer)

Apparently, though, when other people have asked Gavin what he’d like to have, he’s told them he’d like another brother. Although one time he said he wanted a fish. Cooper, however, has been pretty consistent with his wish for a Transformer, despite getting one for Christmas.

Last night, Justin was putting Gavin to bed and was reminding him of our appointment this morning, and he again asked Gavin if he’d like a little brother or a little sister, and Gavin answered, “well, lets just find out tomorrow.” Justin was surprised at this sudden burst of diplomacy, so he prodded him again, and again Gavin answered, “I think we should just find out tomorrow.”

So here we are. It’s tomorrow. Either I’ll be going nuts in the girls section of the store on the way home from the appointment, or I’ll be trying to figure out what clothes survived Cooper and can be used again for Baby #3.

This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.



Good luck and I hope goes well today. If you have the ability to grow and birth a transformer, I will be highly impressed and you will be very rich.


I’m with Justin in the hopes for a healthy baby, be it a boy or a girl and I look forward to hearing/reading all about it. That being said, a girl would be so cool for y’all to have. 🙂
