Baby Questions

Thanks for all the sweet comments.  Farmboy and I couldn't be more excited.  We've had lots and lots of questions since we've gone public with our news, so I thought I'd answer them here as well.

1.  Are you going to find out the gender?
           Yes!!!  I know there are people who think it would be super exciting and heart warming to hear the doc announce, but I like to be prepared.  Like REALLY LIKE to be prepared.  I'd rather not go somewhere new until someone else has been there to tell me about it ( and what I should order).

2.  Do you want a boy or girl?
         I always find this question funny, because you wouldn't try for a baby if you weren't going to be happy either way.  However, both of us have older brothers, so we want a big brother for our future babies.  We tried for a boy, and I kind of think it is a boy.  Again we'll be thrilled either way.

3.  What do you mean you tried for a boy?
        My sister-in-law looked at us like we'd totally lost our marbles.  Several people think we're nuts, but we read a book and did what it said.  If you want more info on that google Dr. Shettles or email me.

4.  Do you have names picked out?
        Yep,  we have 2 girl names and 2 boy names, and we've had some of them picked out since we were dating.  Yea, I know naming future children isn't typical date convo.  But when you live 6 hours away and talk every night everything comes up eventually.  If it's a boy we will use the grandfathers names, Jerome Patrick.  If it's a girl it'll be Daisy Ann.  Ann is my middle name and my mom's middle name.  We've had some people tell us our choices weren't good.... We don't care!  I know every mom out there would agree, and probably had at least one person not like the names they chose.

5.  Do you have plans for the nursery?
       Yep, we will do John Deere green and yellow for Jerome.  And of course pink and brown for Daisy.  We won't be painting the room to match, because it makes it harder for resale.  We're hoping to be out of our house in the near future.  Even nearer future if farmboy gets a job that takes us a little farther from where we're currently located.  No we're not moving more than about an hour or so from where we're at.

OK  This got way longer than I had planned.  If I didn't answer a question on your mind, then ask.

We found out the gender too, we just had to! I'm such a planner and not knowing would kill me!

We didn't try for a specific gender, but our timing worked out for a boy according to the Shettles Method, and that's what we're having :)

I think Daisy is an adorable name! And if someone doesn't like your name choice who really cares, it isn't their baby!!!
