Looky what I've got!


Yup, and I get to keep him until 4:30 this afternoon! His name is Parker and he is a treat of a baby. He so good matured and smiley. He really liked the girls. Abbey said that she gets him from 3:30 till his Dad comes and picks him up.

I think he is being sent to me to warm my heart up to the thought of having a baby boy. I am all girl oriented, and don't try to tell me that boys are soooo much easier. I have seen the exact opposite to be true. If there is a kid screaming in church, I'd put my money on it that it's a boy. I know, I'm not being fair. I know there are plenty of girls that fit that description too. I also see lots of really nice and sweet boys on my family and friends blogs. I guess my reservations come from the old adage, "The devil you know, is better than the devil you don't know." My husband assures me that he was a nice little boy and ours would be too.

I just know that I want a baby. I don't care what gender it is. I can hope, but I'll will love whoever comes our way. I think Parker is here to help me be more open minded. :)

Now, I know that I may get some very opinionated mothers of boys commenting. Just for the record though, I wasn't referring to any of your kids. :)

And for the record, I am all about girls too......but you knew that already :)

Whatever the gender of your baby to be {hopefully soon!} we will love it to pieces!

Parker is a doll, lucky you! My experience with boys and girls is this...

Girls seem to be sweet and easy in the beginning, but boy the pre-teen and teen years more then make up for it. Boys are busy and rough as little ones but calm down and are down right enjoyable as pre-teen and teenagers. My point, it doesn't matter the gender, parenting always will have its rough moments.

You are an awesoem MOm and will be to any child...

What a cutie he is!

My opinion on the boy-girl thing is that they all have their moments :)

The second the tech said we were having a boy (with my second child), my heart just sank. I hated that I felt that way, but I did. Now I couldn't imagine life without BOTH our boys! I'm noticing a little more drama with our daughter and a lot more mischief with our son- I'm still trying to figure out which is worse...

I am one of those moms that you speak of who gets defensive of little boys. In my experience, there is just something extra special about the bond between a mother and her son, and I love that special relationship.

But, there are equally special things about raising girls...so I would just like to say that I hope you get the opportunity to experience both!
