SHOCKED.....IT'S A.......


So let me explain my shock.....I have a son from a previous marriage.  The 5 children my husband and I have are ALL girls.  We really just assumed that this would be another girl.  I really thought my husband didn't "make" boys, since the man is the one that determines the baby's sex.  I actually had another baby so my youngest daughter would have a buddy of her own.  It seems each of my other girls are paired up, so to speak.  So we got pregnant again, and there is no mistaking that this is definitely a boy.  I have not bought blue in many, many years now.  It also goes to show that you just never know....even if you have had several of the same sex, it can still happen :)

Anyway, I found out almost 2 weeks ago but hadn't posted about it.  Thought some of you, that may "know" me and know about all my girls, would get a kicked out of it :)
