  • Well, I love having a girl, but dh wants to try for a boy in a few years. It's fun having a girl, because I am a girly girl.

  • The third time I was pregnant, I wanted a boy. I already had two girls, and I knew this would be my last one, so I really wanted a boy. My youngest daughter (at the time), also wanted a boy. I was afraid that I would cry if I ended up having another girl. Even though I had an ultrasound that indicated it was probably a girl, I held out hope until the very end. Of course, I had another girl. But I wasn't even a tiny bit disappointed. I forgot all about wanting a boy as soon as I looked at her!.

    Now, my middle daughter didn't take it quite as well. She said she loved her sister, but she still wished he was a brother. I took the older two girls to a book store and let them each pick out one book. She was 4 at the time. She came back with a book that had a boy on the cover, screaming, and a baby girl in a crib. The title, "Nobody Asked Me if I Wanted A Sister"!!!

  • I love my son and both DD's just as they are. However if I were to have another baby I'd hope for a girl. They are much more mellow! The 2 oldest can be quite obnoxious, my son in a louder, roudy kind of way. My DD in a cute almost annoying way. Who know's maybe in a few years I'll change my mind, like when puberty kicks in and I'll be wishing I had more boys! lol
