Boy or Girl?

Okay, I'll admit it. But ONLY because everyone keeps asking and pushing for an answer. But to be truthful, I really don't care if this bun turns out to be a boy or a girl--I will be equally thrilled with either! Nick and I both want to have at least one of each eventually.

But I've been secretly wishing for a girl. (giggle!) Don't tell Nick! He's been wishing for a boy, only because in his mind, an older brother will look out for and protect a younger sister. But I grew up as the older sister, and I will argue that even younger brothers look out for older sisters. My brother Adam is 3 years younger than me. He and I fought like cats and dogs when we were children, but NOBODY else could mess with either one of us. The right to torture one of us belonged exclusively to the other, and if anyone else even tried, the other one of us stepped in. My younger brother truly was and is one of  my best friends, and I'm glad I was the older one.

I'm just so happy to be pregnant and carrying our child that either a little boy or little girl will make my heart burst with joy!

Here's the progress of my baby bump pics, for those of you who don't have Facebook to see how my shape has changed.

We'll find out the gender in early February, but we're not sure if we're going to share right away or if we'll have a gender reveal of some sort. Stay tuned!

And if you think you know baby's name--guess again! We've actually scrapped the names we started with and are starting over after we find out the gender. But we're not telling until baby is born. It will be a surprise!

By the way, you may have noticed that this is a whole new URL and blog site. I did this for 2 reasons. One, my old blog site got some sort of glitch and it kept deleting parts of the template. Two, someone got a hold of my old email through that blog and started bombarding me with emails, trying to give me a virus. So the old site is gone. I'm sorry for those who were subscribed--I know it's annoying to have to subscribe again, but here it is. Feel free to sign up on the right side of this page.

Lots of love!
