Thank you for all of the wonderful and kind comments about the expected little boy Goodlin :O) We are very excited! I can't help but feel excited that Brett will have a little man to take to the father son camping trip someday (those still happen, right?), and that he won't be totally alone in our female house. He already said that he is going to make a man cave for the 2 of them to get-a-way in when we are being dramatic. Dramatic? pshhh there is none of that in our house, ever :O)
A few weeks ago, when I was about 17 weeks pregnant I asked the Lord to give me a dream about the baby. I just said a quick little prayer in my head, "Lord it would be fun to have a dream about the baby in my belly, goodnight." And that is basically all I said.
That night I did have a dream, and my dad was in it. He was holding the baby and he said, "but of course it's a boy, there has to be some kind of redemption for all of the males losses in our family." That is about all I remember in the dream, but it was so vivid and real and I woke up that morning and I knew it was a boy! I felt so blessed and thankful to have a dream with my father in it, for even just a few seconds, and I loved that he knew about the baby and he was the one to tell me... How so much meaning and emotion could be wrapped up in a 10 second dream, I have no idea, except for that it was from the Lord.
I only shared this with Brett, and after he heard about my dream he looked at me and said, "Yeah, we probably are having a boy, because having a girl would be way to easy, we know and have everything for a girl already, and nothing is ever easy for us." haha!
My mom also had a dream it was a boy, and she is always right!
When we had the ultrasound I think my heart was a little more prepared to hear the word "boy" but when our sonographer said "Boy" I am not gonna lie, my eyes welled up with tears a little and thoughts of my father and the dream the Lord gave overwhelmed me.
|Oh Norah, doesn't even care what's going on just in her own little word :O)|
Part of me feels a sorry for the little guy, with 3 older sisters (mommies), he is going to be pampered, dresses up, nursed, you name it! Hopefully it will only make him a great husband someday.
I asked Maya if she thought having a little brother would be any different and she said, "no, it won't be any different........ well, expect for one thing, his pee pee, heheheheh".
Love this girl
Now I am actually going to have to give one of my children a haircut, and he won't get headbands at birth, that is a weird concept! Sorry, we probably won't allow our boy to have long hair or a name that could be slightly female, he is going to have a hard enough time with his identity with 3 older sisters. So there will be no confusion of the gender, a good solid boy name, with good solid boy haircuts!
And there was a part of me that felt so sad, that Sarah wouldn't be my baby anymore... but when I came home from the ultrasound I squeezed her and said, "you will always be my baby girl"
