Thank you all for being patient while I try to fix technical issues (that still aren’t entirely fixed…) Time for our gender reveal!
If you missed our big bonus baby announcement, you can read it HERE.
We are SO pumped about having another “sister child”! I don’t know how the roof won’t blow off the top of this house with more attitude crammed within these walls but we are excited! Three girls versus two men… and just like that, the ladies have taken ovaaaaaaaa.
Not that we needed a higher head count to dominate, but as the saying goes, there is strength in numbers 😉
We told the kids about sweet chicken nugget (I call my kids chickens, something my sister in law started saying and for some reason it won’t leave my head now, so naturally this unborn babe is our chicken nugget) and while Berkley was elated about more pink being added to the household, Von cried very loud tears over his celebratory cupcake. He felt like he was robbed of a brother and told us that he would only call the new baby his brother forever. He was in complete denial. And pissed.
However, about ten minutes later his attitude changed once he found out that he was forever going to be the only “man” and “protector” of the Todryk clan. He now takes having TWO sisters very seriously and can’t wait for someone to bully them so he will have permission to push them (lol). Von is not an aggressive child by any means so we shall see if he ever pushes anyone when put up to the test. For now, he likes to feel big and bad just like a big brother should.
We have one but Mike isn’t 100% sold on it yet so I just have to keep working on him. We will be announcing that closer to birth time.
As far as my birth plan goes…
I’ve had a natural birth that almost took place in the passengers side of my husband’s Jeep Grand Cherokee and I’ve had a birth with a beautiful thing called an epidural.
With this birth I shall be camped out in a hotel across from the hospital for the last month of pregnancy and I will be demanding all drugs.
The one time you need to be saying yes to drugs, ladies, is while pushing a human out of your lady bits.
Until the next time this Redhead rambles.
