YOU people amaze me. I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to be able to express something so personal to me and ask for help and so many of you share your personal experiences and thoughts with me. AMAZING.
And yes, we have decided (for now) to continue with our original desire and NOT find out. I’m excited about this.
Except I’m MORE than excited about it but words are failing me right now.
My sister, Sarah, who does not have a blog (which is totally annoying), well, this is her:
She’s my best friend and my sister which makes me the LUCKIEST person alive. I took this photo of her on Friday while she was visiting, her last visit before she delivers baby #3, she’s due on December 15th and she does not know the gender. (like me, she found out via ultrasound with her first two.)
It’s really exciting except her personality type, she realizes, is not the type to NOT find out, it’s kind of killing her because she wants to prepare but feels she can’t prepare the way she’d like.
She’s due in less than a month and I’ll be one of the lucky people in the room when this baby is born.
I get to be one of the first people to know whether this baby is A BOY or A GIRL. And when I witness that moment, that amazing, miraculous and historic moment, I want to be able to decide for myself whether or not I want that moment, too.
(this is my sister, my Mom and I on Saturday having a fabulous time shopping and eating cupcakes.)
And I know, way deep inside that not only will my sister and I both be having our third babies within a few months of each other, but we’ll also both experience one of the biggest surprises life has to offer.
Just another wonderful, amazing thing we’ll have in common.
