Top 10 Reasons I Hope "It's A Girl!"

#10- This adorable dress my sister bought 10 years ago when I was pregnant with Luke. I have been saving it all this time.













#9- We could definitely use more estrogen in this house. I tried to get a female dog to help that situation 3 years ago but it didn't seem to help.

#8- I want to buy pink clothes with flowers and pink blankets and pink towels and pink washcloths (The funny thing is that there is only one pink shirt in my closet).

#7- I have two boxes of cute girl clothes in my garage courtesy of my friend Krista that are just waiting out there to be worn.

#6- I would love to see my boys with a little sister. I wonder how fun it would be for her when she hits high school.

#5- Daughters are honest with their mothers. I want someone to be able to tell me when my clothes are outdated or that my make-up went out of style ten years ago. I may regret this one later. 

#4-  I want to know what a girl of ours would look like.

#3- I want a daughter to go to lunch with and get manicures and pedicures with.

#2-  I want to be able to be there to help her when she has her first child. I know that you can help daughter -in-laws too, but it is somehow just not the same.

#1-  I want to see that cute husband of mine with a little girl. I want to see him hold her and look at her and someday walk her down the aisle.


But, regardless of all of this, I would welcome another boy joyfully! I trust that the child perfect for our family is on his or her way. It is miraculous how much you can love someone you have not even laid eyes on.

Hey, dads can read transparent mama too! I gotta say as wifey and I were reading it, the last line was awesome. I used to say the exact same thing about Jose before we even knew that Jose existed.....

This baby will be so special because it is the fourth! Boy or girl, he or she will be totally loved by the boys. I love you! Enjoy the last couple days with baby in your belly. I loved your pedicure too. We need to feel pretty before delivery! It helps afterward too.
