Today's the day!

Here's a little prepost during breakfast before we find out whether Lil D is a boy or a girl. It's split down the middle on who thinks what. Christy thinks boy. Josh's momma thinks boy. My mom won't say, but she's secretly going boy for naming reasons. Dad gets too distracted about taking Little D fishing in his pond and driving him/her around on his motorcycle all summer to tell me what he thinks. Last I heard Sheryl and Patti think girl. And Aaron thinks boy.

Me and Josh are pretty convinced that it's a girl for several reasons.
(1) We have always thought it would be fun to have a boy.
(2) He's been outnumbered by girls his whole life.
(3) We've bought more boy stuff already than we have girl's stuff.
(4) We keep calling Lil D a "he" by accident.

We're thinking the odds are pretty much against a boy overall. At first I always wanted a boy just b/c I'm not that girly. I can't do hair or makeup. What if I end up with a super girly one? Oh my. Boys seem to be more actively fun although I think I was a pretty dang cool little girl when I was growing up so I guess you never know.

So now, a few hours before we find out I'm undecided. The correct parent response is "whatever as long as it's healthy" - right? I have names I love picked out for both so I'm good there, and as we've been out shopping I can't help but notice the girl clothes are SUPER cute. I'm excited to able to call our baby something other than "it" today and to be able to start dreaming up rooms and watching for cute deals on gender specific items. Probably going to be the longest work hours ever today.

Got my green on for St. Patty's Day! Have a good one! I'll talk to y'all later. :o)
