I had my ultrasound today, and yes it is official, I am having a boy! We really wanted a girl, but another boy is alright. I understand boys and they are a lot of fun. I have tons of boys’ toys, collections of Star Wars and Super Hero Squad so this kid will be born in boy heaven.
My daughter will be disappointed. Since I was also the only girl and had four brothers and can relate to her. At least she has a lot of girl cousins. I didn’t even have that. I had only one girl cousin even close to my age (she is 3 years older) and my other female cousins are way younger than I am. So I grew up playing army and getting made fun of because I was a girl! At least Viki has some girl cousins who are like sisters to her. She will be a great big sister.
Will I try again to have a girl? Nope. I plan to get my tubes tied. I have some chronic health problems that I need to take care of and plan to do that after this birth. I can be like my mother and just wait for granddaughters. She now has 6 granddaughters and they are all the most beautiful little girls. So I can look forward to that and just spoil my nieces.
I guess I need to study up on the Avengers and Star Wars since I have another boy to add to my little fan club. Maybe this one will join Viki and become a fellow Whoverian! I need to look for a cool Dalek toy to give this little boy and see if he likes it. Maybe he will be stubborn and hate Sci-fi and be a huge football fan and be a jock opposite his more nerdy brothers and sister. (I think nerds are cool!)
Well, so that is my news. I wanted to knit some cute girls things, I guess I can instead knit some preppy boy stuff and make some cute girly hats and booties for charity.
