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.
