We're not sure what it is, but we're really excited!
Since I grew up with mostly sisters, I'm wishing for a girl so that Ty can have a sister to be her best friend to have late night pillow talk with as she goes through all the excitement of growing up. My sisters were there with me through it all. Kindergarten crushes, bullies, periods, first loves, marriage, new babies, the list is seriously endless and just keeps growing. Plus boys just have an added level of athleticism that translates to hard toys flying towards your head (Heber has a very good arm and excellent aim; he means well, but just not my favorite thing). Samson votes girl as well and so far he's always got what he wanted.
This is my first pregnancy to really get to enjoy and prepare. With Ty I was in school through my
pregnancy and took an online class the semester she was born (plus I was crazy enough to make her a baby blanket that took about a month to put together). Then with Heber I was doing my student teaching up until a few months before he was born. Those months were spent with trying to get my house back in order after passing that torch to my husband during student teaching. The baby blanket I made for him took an afternoon to make.
Life is really great right now. The only tragedy is that my maternity clothes are still in Idaho and my tummy is growing and growing. I'm running out of stuff to wear. Luckily I also just picked up a couple of Megan Nielson Maternity Patterns (Simplicity is selling them, also got them for $1). I'd better start sewing up a storm or only wear baggy t-shirts and basketball shorts all the time and that might look funny on the days I substitute at the high school. Lol.
Do you have any gender predictions?
