Mike & I decided sometime in March that maybe our little family wasn’t quite big enough, so perhaps we ought to try for one more.
As long as everything goes well, the boys should be getting a new sibling in December--somewhere right around 12/12/12. Aiden’s pretty excited, and Nolan could care less.
From the few folks that have known about this little bambino already, I’ve gotten a few questions about gender preference. I would just like to say once and for all, and with genuine honesty, that I. DON’T. CARE. The assumption seems to be that since I already have two boys, I would obviously want a girl to have that “mother-daughter experience.” That would be all well and good if it happened, but I would be just as happy with another little man to cuddle. No matter how many times I think about it, the pros & cons completely even out for me, so seriously, no preference other than for a healthy baby.*
*Not the case for Mike, though. He definitely wants a girl, but then again he never had a sister as opposed to me having three, so maybe there’s your answer.
So yeah, excited, scared, nervous, impatient, sick (MUCH more this time, actually)—all those things. Should be another fun ride, and I'm thrilled to be a mommy to another miracle. :)
