It's ALL Boys

When I was pregnant with my first we did not want to know if baby was a boy or a girl. Right after I gave birth I heard the doctor say "It's a boy". Oh how exciting. We cried tears of joy our little boy was here. So much fun raising a boy.

When I was pregnant with our second child, again, we did not want to know the sex of the baby. I delivered C-section and the doctor says "It's a boy". We cried tears of joy. Another baby boy to add to the family.
Now, picture me pregnant with our third child. Unlike the majority of parents out there, we still did NOT want to know the sex of the baby. There are just too few surprises in life and we think this is a terrific surprise and well worth the wait. The doctor had told me several times that once you have two of the same sex baby, the pattern usually will continue. Maybe that's why Lineman has two uncles that both have THREE girls. My FFA advisor had SIX boys. A good friend has THREE girls. I have heard this over and over. However, God is in control and whatever He has planned is what we go with. I delivered C-section and my very cool doctor says "It's a boy"... .. "Come on, Carin, you knew it was a boy". Well, maybe I had a good feeling but I didn't KNOW it was a boy. We cried tears of joy for the third time. Our little boy was here. We had a beautiful girl name picked out but it just wasn't meant to be.
And that is because I was meant to be a mother of boys.
And I wouldn't have it any other way!

I love my boys.

I love my boys too but with the girls coming first, I didn't fit the odds.

I have three boys...and the baby was a girl. I was so sure that I was having another boy that we didn't have a girl name picked out. So, we used a name we liked from the first boy. We, too did not find out what the sex was until they arrived on this green Earth and inhaled their first breaths of hospital air! I was stunned to have a girl. I felt that it did run in cycles like that. Love your blog,love your boys and I love my daughter too. Try for a girl, what the heck? And if you are blessed with another boy, then you are BLESSED!

I can't imagine life without my boy! He makes my world go around! Thanks for the sweet tribute to all of your boys.

Bugs and snails and puppy dog tails....not a bad way to go!
And GO is the operative word being a mom of three rascally little boys! Gramma M.

Love your post! I wish my 3 boys were close in age instead of spread out in the middle of girls. Still think they would have had way more fun. Probably more gray hair for me, but they would have had each other at least. We had 4 girls before a boy, and only one girl in 12 kids is between two boys, the other girls were all in "pairs".

oh yeah, we didn't find out with any of ours either. :*)

Like you I had 3 sons and we did not have a name for #3. I had a girl's name picked out that I was going to use just in case it would have been a girl. I truly did enjoy raising my sons into find young gentlemen today.
My MIL had 6 boys before she got a girl.

I loved this post about your boys. You have mucho willpower to not find out the sex 3 times.. I love what your doctor said to you< that was classic!!!!!!
I have one friend at least and then the boys but I love my boys. I would much rather be the mother of all boys than all girls. But I am not super grounded or balanced, so I have been blessed with a balance of the sexes... anything to help me be more grounded!!!
And a boatload of girls would certainly not do that!
