...with a husband and 5 sons, I am truly outnumbered....stories and thoughts on life from a mom in a houseful of little men!

What will it be? Who is this little person? Pink? (Hard to fathom in this household!) Blue? (Continuing trend.) The ultrasound date is SET--for a week from next Tuesday, the 26th. So people...what are your guesses? We can't wait to find out! Tony and I had the big "name talk" last week...the final names are chosen, and I must confess...I am both longing for another boy...and longing for a little girl. I'm glad God has both planned and chosen and is personally knitting this little one together. He knows who the perfect little person is for our family--the little one who we all need, and who needs us. Amazing.

Of course I want to say pink, but that makes me want to go against the expected answer and say blue. But I'll stick with my original thought and say pink. I can't wait to find out, either way!

I vote PINK! But only if it's a soft, light dusty pink (I'm a little picky, okay?)

Oh, you know my heart was set on a houseful of boys, and then I got my Sunny Day. And it is true joy to watch my darling husband turn into a pile of mush when his little girl holds his hand or sits on his lap and gives him a kiss.

So... still can't decide.
Good thing we don't get to, huh? God makes much better choices.

I am looking forward to seeing you and visiting. I will come out soon, after the kiddos start school.

I should say, I will come out and visit after MY kiddos start school, being the "throw them to the wolves" public school parent that I am. :-)

I'm going to say "pink" don't know why just have that feeling. :)

Glad to see you on the blog again. Been wondering how you've been doing/feeling. Can't wait to hear the u/s results.

I love your boy trend because you are such an amazing Mommy of boys! You embrace it and those boys are such sweet little men. A girl on the other hand would be loved and trained by YOU, so of course she would be perfectly adorable as the baby Sissy in the family! Either blue or pink will be a complete adventure!
Love, Jen

When I was pregnant with #1, we did the "wait and see" rather than the ultrasound method. I wasn't sure. . . years of seeing noisy active little boys made me hope for pink. Then he was born!! Oh joy!! The first ten minutes after his birth all I could say was, "It's a boy! It's a boy!"

The second one I had no preference, but all the boy clothes and toys. . . and God gave us another blue to use them.

The third one, still no preference. I strongly felt that this was another HE and it was fine. In fact, I was worried, what would I do with a girl?? And I was shocked when SHE was born!! Infact, I asked my midwife, "What am I supposed to do with this?" She laughed.

I'm happy to say I've adjusted well. Pink is about the same as Blue, only a little more, well, pink. :D

My vote for you: I don't have one. I'm just so excited for you and know that you will love whatever you have. (But I pray that the ultrasound will be clear for you!)

We'll be expecting a blog posting later that day, ok??
