Today we found out what Baby Hayes is going to be. Boy or girl? Blue or pink? Firetrucks or baby dolls?
By the looks of our bundle...it's a BOY!!
Check out the video of Mr. Hayes
Steve and I were so set on this baby being a girl. But last week, I was actually wishing for a boy. Why you ask? Well for several reasons.
I knew if it was a boy, Lucas would have an amazing play buddy for the rest of his life. Lucas and Baby Boy will be about 27 months apart. Anthony and Juliebelle are 17 months apart. And although they were extremely close as babies/toddlers, they're growing apart from each other as puberty is starting to rear it's ugly head. So with Lucas' brother being close in age and a boy, I felt their bond would be much closer than if Baby Hayes was a girl.
My other reason being, I saved all of Lucas' clothes. How perfect. And the boys' room? Another perfect scenario. Just add more firetrucks to the bedroom theme. And even more perfect? Lucas and his brother can room together...the older kids were fretting all about who was going to have to give up their private oasis. Juliebelle was in tears the other night just thinking about having to give up her room. I'm sure she's more than delighted it's a boy.
Overall, having a boy is a much better economical route for us. But, it might iron itself out with the broken arms, legs, and noses I'm sure are to be coming after the fights ensue with one another.
