With Wyatt's pregnancy I was really indifferent as to whether we had a boy or girl. I was actually kind of hoping for a boy (having a family FULL of girls) and being the 5th grandchild for my parents, it was fun when we found out he would be something "new". The chinese gender charts actually predicted Wyatt to be a girl.
They also predict this little one to be a girl - I am hoping this time they are right. For the first month or so, I actually thought I would prefer another boy - seeing as how my family is still FULL of girls. Also when them being so close in age, they would be life-long buds and the practical side of me realized I would have to buy nothing if this child is a girl.
BUT....as time goes on and we are just 6 weeks away from finding out, I am really trying hard not to get him hopes up for a girl. JB has his golfing buddy. I want my girly buddy. I want to decorate a room in frills. I want to have someone to go shopping with for her prom dress and wedding dress. I want someone to watch become a mother, just like my mom has done with her daughters.
JB and I have always said we wanted 3 kids, but who knows if after this one, we just might decide our family is complete and I would really like a daughter to nuture and watch grow and mature. So, I am hoping the Chinese are right this time. AND, of course I will still be happy with another boy, but I would feel so privileged if God blessed me both a little boy and a little girl.
