Blue or Pink? Moments That Change Everything

This weekend we find out if we are having a boy or girl. It’s been a crazy week and one that has barely allowed us any free time to actually process what this weekend will mean… but, this is one of those moments that changes everything.

When we first found out we were pregnant we found ourselves constantly saying; “We just want a healthy baby”. But one night as we were laying in bed Cale revealed that he was just saying that because it’s the “politically correct” thing to say. In all honesty he really wants a boy.

So… since then we have been saying we really want a boy. :)

But, we just checked the Chinese Gender Predictor (that is over 700 years old) and it says we are having girl?! All I can think about is that part at the end of Sleeping Beauty when the two fairy Godmothers keep changing her dress… “Make it blue… No, make it Pink!”. Does anyone else know what I’m talking about?

I have no doubt we will welcome whatever gender God has given us, but the battle wages on in my head. What is this Little Noodle (that is what Cale calls it) inside of me? Ultimately, we are excited to know either way. 24 weeks and counting!

Here’s to a weekend full of BIG events! ;)

    We found out ours on Wednesday! EVERYONE has said they thought it would be a boy so I had convinced myself that it was so imagine my utter shock when they said it was a GIRL! Such an amazing moment :) I can’t wait to hear what you guys are having!!

    Speaking of Chinese beliefs, did you know that this is a spectacular year to be born in? Apparently it’s the year of the dragon, but not just any dragon, a special dragon that only comes along every once in a while! Exciting stuff, eh? :)

    Ah MEG! So excited for you! You hit it on the head with this post… I remember it like it was yesterday… Deep inside my heart I had such a longing for a little girl, even though I wouldn’t say it out loud because, well, that’s just not what you’re supposed to say! I was going to be amazingly happy with whichever little person arrived, of course! But there was this part of me that I knew just wouldn’t be complete until there was her.

    I even convinced myself that it was a boy so I was actually shocked when they told me it was a girl! I was so shocked and pleased and excited and overwhelmed all at once that I burst into tears (happy!).

    There is nothing like that moment when your “noodle” becomes a “him” or “her”… it just makes it all so real…

    So excited for you….Keep us posted!
    LOVE you!
