Isn't it ironic? Doncha' think?!

"Tucker's the oldest. He was hoping for a brother when Emma was born but he was happy with Emma, then along came Eliora, Paige, Audrey, Avery, Sierra, Storie and Sadie. He was getting desperate. Next was Abbie and finally Rush! Another male to bond with! But all those years have taken their toll. This picture says it all."

We decided when we were pregnant with our very first child that we never wanted to find out what we were having.
With all the advances in science and the amazing things they are able to do these days we wanted to be kept in the dark about what the sex of our child was. 
So through the first 5 children we never found out. 
It was what got me through 100 hours of labor without drugs. 
I just wanted to know what that dang baby was so bad I kept going!

But, with our 6th I was at the regular 30 week appointment where they do the last ultrasound and I was watching the screen..... when out of nowhere.....

"Oh! My goodness!" I yell.
"Thats a BOY!"

"I thought you didn't want to know" says the lab tech.

"Well I didn't but, oh, my. You don't have to say anything I can clearly see that it is a BOY!" I say again.

"Yes, honey it is."

Then we knew. It was fun to know, after 4 girls I could prepare a little more. 
Withe this one, I decided I was too old to not find out!
So we did, and we are having a .....

GIRL!
This is the ironic part, on the day we found out, my Mother not knowing what we were having and that we were going to find out, posted the above photo and this post!

I now have that song stuck in my head due to your title. Poor Tucker. He deals with it remarkably well though and the girl who marries him is going to love him cause he has seen and been through it all!

That is a great picture. On my husband's side of the family, we have many pictures like that except in the reverse. There are 12 grandsons and 4 granddaughters. For the longest time Rachel was the only girl surrounded by boys. We have a lot of pictures of her crying surrounded by crazy boys. The girls seem to come every 4 years. That's exciting that your having a girl. Congrats!

1. start stockpiling girl things like pamprin and pads NOW!!!!

2. When do you you want me to bring:

car seat (already washed!)
play mat
clothes
baby carrier
and other miscellaneous hand me downs
I know space is a problem, but maybe if you have her stuff around you'll be prepared for having her around!!!

You're having a baby girl...how exciting! When is she due? I love the picture, your son's face in it is so funny! Over here my baby girl is the only one with three older brothers so it's a completely different ball game. :)

I grew up in a house with 5 girls. It was awesome. Lots of hair, but awesome. We're all still best friends. You are an awesome mother.
