My husband's aunt this week told me she really wished she knew what I was having so she could get a blanket for the baby and I need blankets as much as I need more toys in this household. I actually think its a silly reason to want to know. A blanket...thats not a good reason to know!!! My sister found out years ago she was having a boy because her mother-in-law wanted to know since she was crafting the perfect blanket for the baby. I remember thinking back then that was soooo stupid.
We tried to find out with our daughter and she wasn't being cooperative. I was pretty sure I was having a girl and just like this one I think we are having a boy. The tech who had been doing ultrasounds for years and years told us that she was in the 80 percent range that we were going to have a girl. Well it wasn't good enough for me and we primarily bought all neutral clothing which in this day and age is trying to find a needle in a haystack. I kept all the receipts for any girl or boy clothing we purchased and yes I bought more girl clothes than little boy outfits. We now have enough small neutral baby items to clothe this next baby and that is rather nice.

So I will reuse the girly cloth diapers if the next one is a boy. Our daughter did not seem to mind the blue ones I put onto her. In fact, in her first walking expedition she wore a blue cloth diaper. I know my mother had me in baby boy clothes and someone mentioned it to her one evening, but apparently it did not impact me at all. Yes, if I have a boy I will buy boy appropriate clothing, but I can wait to see if I need to. In fact, all the praises that we are having a mystery baby is rather nice and I will continue to enjoy them. It is better than the "oh how old is your daughter and when are you due questions." Yes, the two of them will be 18 months apart when all is said and done. Now THOSE people I would love to yell at them that yes I do know how the birds and the bees work. However, I try to be polite when answering them although I'm not sure how much longer with all these pregnancy hormones running through my system. That though is ANOTHER post I'll have to do!!!
