Now that my pregnancy is out in the open I keep getting asked the usual “what are you hoping for?”
This question is such a different question to the first time. With Scarlett although I was happy with either I guess deep down I wanted a little boy. The only reason being I have always wanted that big brother to be my protector. I wanted the same for any future children. We never found out the gender with Scarlett (you can read why here) but when she was born a girl I wasn’t disappointed and I didn’t even think about the fact I wanted a little boy. I was just happy to have my little baby alive and kicking!
Now that I have spent 2+ years with Scarlett I absolutely love that I have a daughter because she is quite simply my best friend! I would absolutely love to give her a little sister and another best friend for us both. I can imagine them wearing matching outfits or very similar clothes, playing in their bedroom with their dolls and skipping down the garden path holding hands!
But I would also love a little boy so that I can experience both! I am sure that he too would be our best friend and if I’m honest James needs some more team mates as he’s very out numbered. Scarlett and I can go to ballet lessons whilst James stands out in the cold at football training.
I am going to sound so cliche but as long as baby is healthy I will be perfectly happy with either! There is a little space to be filled in our family of three and we could not be more excited to meet them 🙂
Did you find out the gender of your baby or were you team yellow?
