Is #4 a He or a She?!

I know it’s the question on everyone’s mind (and it’s always on my mind).  So drumroll please…

Baby is totally smirking at us and all like, ‘I know what I am, but you don’t! HAHAHA!’ It’s a sarcastic baby, I can already tell. At least I know it’ll fit in where with out brood!

We know (and have since 14-ish weeks) the gender.

But we don’t know.

That’s not confusing or anything, huh?

At our 14 week ultrasound I told the sonographer we weren’t going to find out, but that I wanted her to find out if she could and print off 5 copies of the gender shot (I had brought 5 envelopes with me) so I could give it to my embroidery ladies and Etsy shops.


Because y’all know me too well…I’m going to slap that baby’s monogram right on it as soon as it pops out.

And she easily found out what we’re having (which would lead me to think it was a boy, but who knows).

It’s been confirmed with another ultrasound and genetic testing…but we don’t know.

C. wavers back and forth between boy and girl. My dad, mom, mother-in-law and myself say boy. The kiddos and my birth mom say girl. C. had his tarot cards read in Salem (random!) and the man predicted a boy without even knowing I was pregnant.  Even those prediction charts don’t know!

{I found this little poster here, by the way.}

{I have been buying a few girl things though *just in case* (I have plenty of boy stuff, but sold or gave away all of MM’s things last year so I have absolutely nothing). Oh, how I’m trying to rein in the urge to buy every Well Dressed Wolf, Matilda Jane, Sweet Honey, Persnickety, Blue Dove piece I see…oh, the list of little girl brands I love goes on and on. (’cause this baby may very well have a penis and won’t be able to wear a dress! HA!)}

As for names we’ve chosen Bonnie Grace or Benji Harris. ‘Bonnie’ means both baby and beautiful–our beautiful baby. ‘Grace’ is after my grandmother, Mama Grace. We chose ‘Benji’ because it sounded like the perfect name for a big, cuddly bear of a guy. ‘Benjamin’ does mean son of my right hand and many Jewish families name their last son Benjamin and this IS our last baby…. ‘Harris’ is after my grandfather, Papa Cleve (his and Mama Grace’s last name was Harris). We’re calling the baby “Baby B” until it arrives since both names start with the letter B.

And going with the whole Baby B thing we’re doing a bee-themed nursery since I love bees. Lots of tan/natural with black accents. I’m actually really excited about decorating the nursery (Moseby’s old room once he and Lawson move in together in the next month or so) and you’ll probably get tired of me talking about it!

    I say boy – purely because you didn’t have morning sickness. I was sick literally every day of my first trimester (not kidding, this baby was conceived on Christmas Eve and I knew it – because I was nauseous on Christmas Day through the end of April), and when I mentioned it to my mom, she said immediately it was a girl – she only had morning sickness with me and I’m the only girl she carried. Something about double female hormones in the same body, since ovaries and eggs are all formed in utero.
    But then again, I swore I was having a boy until the genetic testing said it’s a girl. I didn’t even trust that until ultrasound confirmed it. So… ¯\_(?)_/¯
    Congratulations again!

    Will never tire of you talking, and I wondered if this was a “Boston” baby. 😉 Love you and Baby B.

    There are so few good surprises in life. Let this be one! I never knew- beyond old wives’ tales which sex any of my babies were. They only did ultrasounds for emergencies when Heather was born. I bought lots of pale yellow and light green for until she was born.

    I would LOVE to know what it is…I don’t do surprises very well, as you know…Either way, this little one is going to be so loved by EVERYONE in his/her life.. He/She is definitely a “God Wink”….My prayer is for a healthy baby and for you as you carry this precious one. Love you sweet daughter.
