We found out today we're expecting a GIRL!!


I confess, we had kind of been wanting a boy so that then in the family we'd have 2 boys and 2 girls. This way we will have one boy and 3 girls, wow!! My mother-in-law said to my son: "Well, you'll be the king of the henhouse, all right!"


By way of announcement, what I did was this: I approached the house carrying a pink balloon. I had told the kids to watch for either a pink or a blue balloon, so I thought that was a clever and fun way to do it.


Anyway, we're happy about it and now that I can attach a name to this girl, I finally feel like she can take shape in my imagination, and become a person instead of just an "it"!


Have a great day everybody.

Thanks Val, Cheryl, Krista, Melissa. My son was a little disappointed at first but I think he's fine with it -- after all, he's used to sisters and he won't have any competition as Prime Beloved Brother!


My girls take turns folding and re-folding the baby clothes I've bought. (I know, you'd think I'd have plenty of leftover clothing but I actually gave everything away because I didn't think I'd need it any more!)


P.S. 27 weeks and feeling good!!


Happy Day to everybody.

Lucky duck! LOL

Congrats!

While I love my new little man, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that Mary Catherine and I were hoping for a girl! LOL I guess I just love having a sister so much, I wanted the same for Mary.

Oh well, Benjamin got the blessing of a brother, and Mommy got the blessing of having at least 1 daughter!

Glad to see that all is going well for you,

Val

Yeah, definitely do the balloon thing! I just think kids like something visual -- it seems like more fun, packs more of a punch than just the words would do. Good luck on the scan!
