we had an ultrasound today
and, boy oh boy, we were SURPRISED!!!
because we brought the professor, my mother, and the four oldest kids.
we all took bets on the sex of the baby.
the professor was sure it was a girl.
my mom, and my girls voted girl...
me and the boys voted boy...
so it was 4 girls to 3 boys.
WE'RE HAVING A GIRL!!!!!
i'm going to have 5 GIRLS!!
i'm so excited... SO excited.
and, completely at peace.
i do still feel like i have a little boy... maybe #8.
or maybe not.
but, a girl at this time feels so right.
the thought of having a boy and moving the next month was scaring me...
i know it may sound irrational, boys are not that different than girls.
but, i know girls. i have pink baby stuff and blankets and bedding...
my boy stuff is 10 years old, and uncertain.
between deciding yesterday on Oregon State, and seeing my sweet little baby girl...
there is a peace in my life that i have been yearning for.
i can do this!
i am so blessed.
and... i LOVE the thought of planning 5 weddings.
and getting to know 5 different women...
and training 5 future mothers.
and, it's just so much nicer changing little girl diapers.
i LOVE little girls.
really, girls are my FAVORITE.
i enjoy my boys. they are great kids.
but... there is something special about little girls.
and so, i'm SUPER EXCITED!!
i can't wait to find 5 coordinating Easter dresses!
And how fun to sew another little girl quilt...
just so you know...
we DEFINITELY decided to be SURPRISED!!!!
(i think this was my biggest surprise ever... but, i don't know, i was pretty surprised leah was a girl too... when i was younger i wanted 12 boys... funny how life changes you.)
drew said, "mom, you really have to figure out how to make some boys."
i reminded him it was DADDY that decided boy or girl... and honestly, the professor LOVES little girls.
he's been hoping for a girl from the beginning...
and i HAVE NO IDEA what we are going to name her... no idea at all...
can you believe i'm moving to Oregon AND having a GIRL??
i guess i understand my crazy HORMONES.
life is good.
