We are having a baby boy.
Lila is still in denial. She has been saying we would have a baby girl at least since last August. Obviously, we weren't even pregnant then. That was just about the time we started telling Lila that we wanted to have another baby. She had just about the saddest face on during the ultrasound today when we told her it was a boy. Big, long frowny face. She was in total denial.
We went straight to the grocery store after the ultrasound. Lila was saying things like "the baby is a girl" and if we asked her if she would love her baby brother she said no. Finally, on our way out she asked for some Oreo cookies. I told her if she was happy that my baby was a boy, she could have some. Well, that worked. She said she was happy.
She isn't as mad now as she was at first, but she has been pulling off pictures from the fridge of families that she colored in nursery, and trying to prove to me that the baby is a girl by pointing to the pictures and saying "see mommy, the baby is a girl!"I'm sure she'll get used to it eventually. Todd of course is elated and I am pretty dang happy about it too. Although after 21 months of trying, I would have been happy no matter what.
