Boy or Girl?

People often ask if I want a boy or a girl. I always reply that I really do not care I just want a child. If you ask Melissa she definitely wants a girl. I think the thought of having a boy scares her mainly because of the lack men in our life. We both have one sister and no brothers and besides my dad and cousin (who live away from us), we have 0 men in around us. Melissa would not want me to say this because of “The Secret” but I believe we are going to have a little boy. I have a strong feeling and I cannot explain why I feel this way.

As the “other mother,” I am in charge of naming our future child. This is difficult because a name is a big deal but the real difficulty is that Melissa is so picky. I have said Melissa what do you think about this name and she says, “I hate it, but you get to pick the name”. It is ridiculous to think I am going to use a name she hates. The name also only comes into play if we have a girl, because we already decided to name our baby after both of our dads. I think we decided this a few years back that our boy would have this name if we decided to have children.

I'm sure you will come up with the perfect name. In the event we have another baby, I already have the name picked out for a girl. Jason hates it, but I gave in and let him name the baby, so I think he owes me! haha Good luck! I can't wait to hear what you decide on!
