Come On, Tell Me What You Think
This whole "not finding out the sex of the baby" has created quite a stir in these here parts. It's either hot or cold. There seems to be no warm area on this issue.
We've either ticked off the relatives (which really was our evil plan to begin with...MUH HA HA HA!) by NOT finding out or we've been greeted with gracious kudos for building the excitement until the baby's actual birth day.
The latter was truly our goal. We simply want to be surprised.
I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am! Don't get me wrong, I'm ALWAYS excited to welcome a new life, but this time there is an excitement I can't explain other than we simply DON'T. KNOW. A. STINKIN'. THING. And that, my friends, is exciting! I am lovin' it this way!
Despite the usual things we wonder about (hair color, does he/she have hair, size, date, etc...) the added excitement of not knowing if it's a boy or girl has simply sent Monk and I over the top. We are beside ourselves with giddiness at the anticipation of finding out if we have son or a daughter at the actual birth.
Usually I have some sort of "Mother's Intuition" at this point in the game. This time? Nada. Zilch. Zip. I simply have NO IDEA if this is a boy or a girl. And honestly, I'm thanking God for that because truth be known, I simply don't want to know.
And that, y'all, leads to my next poll. I'm gonna put the boy or girl poll today and then try to figure out how to put it in my sidebar over the weekend (um, yeah right). Y'all can vote as to what you think this baby is and give me your scientific theories as to how you know this.
And just to be fair, I'll once again let everyone know that we have one son, who is the oldest at 17 and then 4 daughters in a row (15, 8, 5 and 1).
Alrighty y'all, give me your thoughts and your votes!
