Just as we thought.
Yes, it's official, I am now permanently outnumbered in this house. :)
Isobel was at the scan with us and has been pretty desperate for a sister, even though I've tried to prepare her for a brother, so her little face dropped when the sonagrapher told us. She was still adamant that it was a girl for a few minutes, but once she realised that she'd be getting a gift from the baby, and giving one to him one in return, she changed her tune. Typical girl! She ran into school yesterday afternoon telling everyone about her brother, and is now saying "he" instead of "baby", so I guess it's sunk in.
Isobel said she wanted to announce it to the boys when they get home from school, and they were excited when they found out. Ryan jumped up in the air and shouted "Yes!" when we told him. He has three half sisters, so to him it was about time for a brother.
I can't wait to have a little boy again, they are so cuddly and loving.
I've been sorting some baby clothes tonight(yes, I am a hoarder), and I was planning on giving the bags and bags of girl clothes to a friend of a friend, but I just heard she's having a boy too. Somebody needs to get pregnant with a girl, quick. There are bundles of baby clothes on offer! I hate selling on Ebay, and really want to give them to someone I know so don't want to Freecycle them. I thought I'd gifted out all my nice boy clothes, but it looks like my friend Angela gave them all back to me because they all seem to be here. Baby clothes are a vice of mine, I go a bit mad in the sales each year and refuse to throw them away, so I have oodles of boy clothes too.
Here's to another 18 years of muddy football boots, washing kits, and standing in the pouring rain!
