IT'S A BOY!!!!
And he seems to be growing normally and right on schedule. Mark was very happy, his face just lit up. I am thrilled of course, but might have been a teeny-tiny bit disappointed (only from a fashion since). Now I know I don't have to paint and I won't go bankrupt buying clothes for the next 18 years--ha!! I feel like I finally have a connection with this little guy now, and the fun nesting stage can begin. There is so much to do and so little time left. I have begun making my lists and now I need to see how much money daddy Mark is going to let me spend (he'll probably give me $100). It's really the big brothers that need the most-bunk beds and a dresser and some closet organizers. We are going to let them share a room so that we can keep a guest room (for now anyway-I may end up regretting this decision, especially when it comes to sleeping). The little guy will need only a few clothes and a few hundred thousand diapers. I'm not sure how many of our current clothing items can make it for round 3. My kids are not the cleanest, and I am not Martha Stewart in the laundry room! Then there are all the closets and cabinets I need to clean out for the annual sweep through that I really must get done this year because next year might be tough. The list just keeps getting longer and longer, by the second it seems. I better go get started. Just kidding, not today-I am off to the Barn for work. Oh, I'll just leave the list with Mark!!!
