1. Pet Peeves
Okay, it's REALLY starting to annoy me when people say they don't want to find out the baby's gender because they want a surprise. For goodness sakes people! It's a surprise no matter WHEN you find out. One situation is just a whole lot calmer and less messy and the other is full of adrenaline and chaos. I feel somewhat defensive because I hate the assumption that I have no self control and therefore that is why I am finding out my baby's gender ahead of time. I'm getting annoyed just typing this. Whew. Obviously this really bothers me. I try to be gentle about it and laugh it off but man! It bugs me! I have loved knowing the gender and knowing that I'm having a little boy, being able to call him by name (if we have a name picked out) and being able to envision what it will look like to have 2 boys in this home, to see Noah be a big brother to his little brother and see Jamie with his 2 sons. It's just such a wonderful bonding time and I've loved knowing for that reason only. I think it also bugs me that people think I want to find out so I can shop. Perhaps if it were a girl, I'd have bought something pink, but honestly, if I buy a single thing for this little boy I'll be a fool. Seriously...when I thought about it, I believe we have over 15 DIAPER BOXES FULL OF BOYS CLOTHES. It's BEYOND ridiculous at this point.
Aaaand...that is all.
