Time to Dye All Those Pink Onesies

First things first, we’re having a boy this time. We’re thrilled. Mark and I would have been just as thrilled if the baby turned out to be a girl, but everybody else is excited for us to have a boy. Those who predicted a boy will be sure to claim credit for being right. People are so funny. They guess the baby’s gender on a wide variety of really silly things. It’s because I’m uglier/prettier, the shape of my belly is such, I have a craving for such and such food… Anyway, it’s time to haul out the baby things. Gah, I dread going though the boxes again. I really should get some Printed Tape to pack our storage boxes with since I never know which boxes are ours, my folks’, my uncle’s… Marguerite was arguing at first that it should be a baby sister for her, but she got over that quickly. Like I said, she doesn’t really have a firm stand on the matter. We do have to prep her for this baby. She’s been an only child for 5 years. It will take a lot of getting used to. At the moment, the baby is still in a breech position and it’s on the big side. I want a natural birth, so these things slightly weigh (very slightly – I still have months to go) on my mind. I will start looking through baby name books again, and maybe get some natural dye for all those pink baby clothes.

Had the same result, breech position and big baby! They're suspecting me of having diabetes nga, wag naman sana! Hope the baby is just naturally big! Good luck to us!

Let's pray that there's no gestational diabetes for either of us!

I know. Even with Daniel, Yosev and Luigi, I feel totally inexperienced in taking care of baby boys...

Wow- a boy! This will change your life, but I think you'll like a little adventurer.

It will definitely be different! I'm looking forward to it.
