alex: i want it to be a boy.
alex: because i want bailey to be the only girl. hmm... maybe i want it to be a girl so bailey wont' attack me so much because she will be busy (with the girl).
adam: it's a boy or a girl. (declared with conviction).
bailey: on a scale from 1-10 it's gotta be a girl.

bailey: can i change my vote? i want to be the only girl dad loves.
gar: i want girl bookends.
gar: ame, it's gotta be a girl because you've never been sicker.
amy: this pregnancy has kicked my butt. it has to be a girl... if it's not, i will just know i'm getting old and my body has said enough.
me: will you be sad if it's not what you'd expected.
we will take what we get and love it.
and hold it
and squeeze it
and smell it
and watch it
and bathe it
and feed it
and kiss it
and hug it
and wrap it
and sing to it
and rock it.
tomorrow i won't have to call it an "it" because we will know, boy or girl. either way, adam is right.
