Snips and Snails

Do you think it would be really really wrong of me to put a pink dress on my new grandson when he is born?  (can you tell I want a girl)
Sigh!

On the serious side, I do have to admit I am disappointed.  I know when all is said and done and Noah gets here it really won't matter. I am going to love and spoil this child, and think of him as my own, but I would have really loved to have a little girl to dress up and play with. I feel like I have always been cheated out of the chance to be a girly girl. My granddaughter is so far away. Girls just have more to choose from when it comes to clothes and accessories than a boy does.
Also Rebecca had her heart set on a girl this time. It really hurt me to see the look on her face when they told us it was a boy. She had not planned this baby, and really did not want it. She has had one emotional up and down after another in the last 4 1/2 months, and had really just started to accept the idea of a baby and started to get a bit excited at the thought it might be a girl and then boom. The air was just let out of her balloon.  I tired to cheer her up and took her shopping, but the both of us were walked around going..DUH...
She has three big totes of baby clothes left over from Cody so she really doesn't need a thing. Let's face it, a blue sleeper is still just a blue sleeper. We left the store empty handed. Sigh.

Oh well at lest she won't have to spend much money, and the boys can share a room. That part will be good for my husband and I since I will probably never live in anything bigger than a two bedroom apt. I can fix up the extra room in a boys theme for them, where as if I had a girl I would have had to paint and decorate with a neutral color and curtains.  Also I like the way Cody and Noah sound together, it slips off the tongue easy..
But maybe I can dress them both up as a princess, just once..At Halloween..Ok..Just once!

You're right -- when that baby comes you will fall in love.

Patty... Refrain your desire! ;o) I love this name, Noah. You'll saying all this, but we all know when he's born, nothing will matter!

Give it some time and pretty soon you won't be able to imagine a baby other than Noah. It's a lovely name and even though your daughter was hoping for a girl this time, trust me - boys are easier! My two girls about drove me over the edge and continue to push me in that direction to this day!

Okay, it was been WAY too long since I have visited you here! I have a book I'm reading I wanted to tell you about. But it's not with me, LOL. It a case-report book about ghosts in the Stately Homes of England. Older book, terrific. I'll check out the title. And - Congrats! I know you were hoping for a girl, but once little Noah comes, that's all going to fall by the wayside in a flood of I-adore-that-kid!
