With our first two girls, we found out what we were having before they were born. On our third, we thought it would be fun to wait. I was certain that it was another girl and we did not own one boy item the day of his arrival. In fact, the poor kid slept in a pink nursery until after he turned one. It drove everyone we knew bananas not knowing what we were having. Surprisingly, it didn't bother me a bit. Sono after sono I would just turn my head if the picture started heading south. It was the most amazing surprise. I love surprises. The anticipation was well worth the wait when the doctor held him up and everyone yelled, "It's a boy"!!!
It cracks me up how so many people think we are absolutely crazy for not finding out. Everyone wants to know what we are having, and when I tell them we aren't finding out, they look at me like I have a horn on my head. The next thing they say is, "Well I hope it's a boy so Beckham can have a brother". Well, he's getting a brother from the other side of the world, so we've got that one covered. Then they ask if I have a feeling what this one is? My gut feeling is that it is another boy, but my gut feeling was that Beckham was a girl, and my gut feeling was that Lola was a boy. Obviously my track record isn't great, and I apparently have zero intuition when it comes to my own body.
Some days I hope it is another boy because that would make our living situation easy, and because I pretty much think Becks is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Other days I think it would be wonderful to have a baby girl that doesn't destroy everything in her sight and that will actually sit down at dinner and not rub food in her hair. That sounds really nice most days. Either way, this baby will fit right into our family like he/she has been here all along. They will be loved unconditionally and add more joy (and chaos) to our family.
