I am in the process of readjusting my mode of thinking, and I will admit it has been a challenge. But once again, God had a different plan for us and a baby is a blessing regardless of gender.
Everyone keeps playfully telling me it's better to have a boy first so that he can protect his baby sister once she comes along. (I do like the idea of having a big brother keeping a little princess safe.) Plus, I also like knowing I will always have a small advocate who will love me just a little more than his father. :-) So here I am...changing gears...changing mindsets...and nursery colors!...and going from thoughts of ear piercings to reading about circumcisions. And what was once my biggest fear of being overruled in a house full of testosterone has come to pass. But Joe and Joe Jr. beware: I'm a tough gal and I will manage just fine!
I was touched to find a small gift waiting for me at my desk this morning from my coworker Jack and his wife Jancey. Jack and Jancey have two beautiful kids: a boy and girl. They left me a very sweet note along with this adorable gift inside... Joe will be so excited! We are already honing Baby boy G's athleticism (with a very fashionable ensemble). Who says I can't have the best of both worlds?! (Just don't expect me to turn into a football/soccer/baseball mom.) :-)
Until my next post... thanks for reading!
