boy or girl

Tomorrow (11 hours 34 minutes to be exact) we'll find out whether they'll be more twirling & dress up around the house or snails & puppy dog tails.
It would be fun to wait & find out when the baby's born, but you're talking to the girl who still peeks at her Christmas presents. So, that would be complete torture for me. It drives me crazy when other people don't find out-let alone myself. With all this excitement and anticipation it kinda feels like Christmas Eve.
Since my motherly intuition on this subject is only a hunch... I've asked the family to weigh in their thoughts-hoping they'll have some flash of inspiration.
Big sis says that it'll be a boy about 75% of the many times I've asked her.
Little sis (who loves saying silly things just to make you laugh) has had many different answers... but I'm pretty sure there isn't a baba, doggie or cake in my tummy. Today she did say boy but that was after she heard Big Sis' answer. Then Big sis changed her answer to a girl. Could you imagine another 5 months of these flip-flop answers?I'm counting on the trained professional tomorrow. ;)

Hmmmmm... what will it be?

Collin kinda thinks it's a girl leading him to twitter this:
Find out the gender of kid #3 on Monday. So far, 2 girls. Weekend plan: play football while blowing stuff up. Convince God to send a boy.
Yes. A boy would be fun, but believe me, we wouldn't complain at all if God sent us another one of these darlings.

Kristin said...

Yay! That's so exciting. I find out in 2.5 weeks what I am having, and am having a tough time waiting that long. So let's just say I know exactly how you feel about waiting. :) Good luck tomorrow.

is it too early for me to start the drum roll?

Google the chinese gender chart! It is based on your age and month of conception and it is freakishly accurate!

mstef_87 said...

Soo excited for you guys!!! Whatever way it goes, we know "its" going to be ridiculously adoroable- your track record so far is perfect! lol...just think of all the cute boy scrapbook paper you could buy tho!!! Can't wait to hear what it is!

Nancy W said...

2Angels said...

That is so exciting! Love the cake in your tummy!! :) Hope it is a boy for you (and Collin!!) because it is nice to have both but then like you say, who would complain if you had another of those beautiful little girls! :)

Le Chateau des fleurs said...

This is a fun time! Love this! And the excitement. My family wants a boy next...I am not even pregnant! LOL
Your kids are adorable!

Lorna May said...

How exciting...I loved finding out and then we didn't tell anyone. How mean were we?? LOL

Jen Fox said...

So excited for all of you! (sisters included) Cannot wait to hear the verdict!

Cannot wait to see you in all your cuteness... just a few more months! Maybe sooner if I convince myself to hop on a plane to Chicago next month

madebymum said...

excited for you. P.S I am having my first blog give away stop by and leave a comment if you can.

Pam's Place said...

ecxinting! Enjoy the moment and i hope you'll let us know!

Hi Liz, any sickness or anything different this time. With my first 3 boys and I had a super easy pregnancy with no sickness. With my baby girl, it was totally different and I was so sick. So i would bet you are having a boy if you were not sick in your first months. Can you post the link to your mini album( 2 previous post; pregnancy and CK), I would love to see the other pages. Tks!

travelingmama said...

I am TOTALLY with you! I never wanted to wait to find out... I still peek at my Christmas presents too! But... shhh... don't tell my husband! heehee! I cannot wait to hear your news!!

Elizabeth said...

Can't wait to hear the news!!!!

Abby's Garden said...

Oh how exciting! We found out for our Sophie and though we received about 100 pink and purple outfits at the shower it was still fun finding out:) Can't wait til you share with us!

Ute L. said...

Oh I was the third girl, which wasn't a boy ;-) So my Dad was in trouble with 3 girls and his wife (especially when we grow older, between 13 and 18), but he loves all of us! And now he had 3 sons-in-law and they play football, go fishing, do some woodwork... I hope God sent you a boy!

Michelle said...

I'm hoping for a boy so we can see more boyish layouts!!! And maybe some boy paper lines.

But I think it is another girl.

Regardless.....best wishes to you all!!!!

K said...

I am really excited for ya'll! I love your kiddos, they are so cute! I'm going to guess that you're having another girl, but (For Collin) I will hope that it's a boy. hehe.
Good luck today! I can't wait to hear what baby is!

Tracey said...

I am lucky enough to have one of each, so what ever god sends you will be just perfect.
love me :-)

Drama queens mum (Kimberly) said...

That's so exciting. Can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl. I think another girl would be very cool. I had to find out what I was having too & I hate when other people don't find out. That drives me crazy.

Emily said...

I hope you have a boy...selfish reasons...because I love your scrapbook pages, but I have only boys, and I want to see what you would do for little boy pages.
Oh, and I hope for Collin's sake it's a boy...cuz I know how much I really wanted a girlie, but never got one...
Good luck!

{Erica} said...

Can't wait to find out! I think a boy after 2 girls is the way to go (wink, wink)...we are loving our little man!

Also, all the people I know that have 2 girls are expecting or just had a little boy...so Collin might be blowing up stuff with his boy sooner than he thinks!

Goodluck!

{VICKI} said...

I'm like you ---I hate it when people don;t find out!

I'm voting for a boy!

Angela W said...

So very exciting! We will be waiting for your update after you find out! I know your family will be very happy with whatever is in your tummy! ;)

Jami Nato said...

well i hope you get a little boy. they are hilarious. and they pee on everything.

Bonnie said...

oh what fun!! I can't wait to hear what you are having! Having one of each myself, either is a blessing and such fun! Boys are wonderful in their own right, and there is something wonderful about the son/mother relationship! But I am a sucker too for my little girl...either way, you love your child hey! All the best!

Jena said...

How fun! We never found out with all 4 of our kids and yes, I am still the little girl that likes to peek at my Christmas presents ;-P but for some reason this was a surprise I could handle! We had 3 girls and then a little boy - when I was pregnant with him, #3 who was less than 2 years old, was the only one who insisted it was a boy all along, and she was right!

Good luck to all of you!

Amanda Sevall said...

How exciting!!!! My little sister is pregnant with #2 and we have to wait until AUGUST to find out boy/girl. Hope you get a good peek today!!

Deborah said...

I'm excited for you! I couldn't wait to find out either:)
God's Blessings!

pakosta said...

I am saying it's another girl, just cause I always wanted 3 (got 2).....can't wait to find out!
I never found out with either of mine!~

Brock Family said...

Can't wait to read what it is!!! To bad its not a cake though! That would be fun! :-) I bet your girls are excited to find out if they will get another sister or a brother!

Stef said...

Can't wait to hear! Love the pettiskirts on the girls and love their guesses on tummy contents! Enjoy today!!

I still peek at my Christmas presents, too. My husband insisted that we not find out about number three, but I was pretty proud of myself that I held out one whole night without opening the sealed envelope. I was awake THE WHOLE NIGHT - I sneaked as soon as he left for work the next day, confirmed I was going to have a third girl, and then didn't tell a soul the whole pregnancy. Glad Colin is on the same page as you.

laurie said...

I am as excited as you to find out, be sure to post right away! I have two boys and a girl, love every minute of both! Either way, he/she will be gorgeous, Quincey's birthday photos are too sweet, you are a lucky lady, such beautiful kids!!

kiki comin said...

always exciting to find out what it is..i hope its a boy for you, just so its something different! good luck!:)

Heather said...

I keep checking your blog to see if you've posted your discovery. Can't wait to hear--and I'm truly excited for you and your cute little family. :)

Renee Zwirek said...

So exciting!!! Can't wait to hear what you're having! I found out with both of my girls...my excuse...reasoning is with the modern technology now-a-days why not found out what the sex is. I'm glad we did it...glad my sister just did it...I'm glad you are, too. I find it annoying when people say, "We're gonna wait for the surprise." My husband and I say whatever...it was still a surprise to us when we did the ultrasounds in the doctors office. What's the big dif?! Hahaha! Whatever the sex is...blessings to you, your family, and cheers to a healthy newborn! Have a great day! P.S. Sweet pics!

Saw Collin's tweet...YAY!!! ;)

mstef_87 said...

Just saw the tweets!! So happy for you guys and your sweet family of 5!!

sassy said...

that wit cracks me up! My hubby is an MD and I wouldn't let him coem to ANY of my ultra in case he could see what the baby was-I really wanted a surprise! Little did I know(or believe at the time) sonograms and brains scans are VERY different and take diff training to read! Ihope babe is in right position for you!

Rebekah Williams said...

I am SO looking forward to knowing.

Another thing I'd love to know? -- where you found those adorable twirly girlified skirts!

Steph said...

I'm a little behind on my blog reading from the weekend, so I'm playing catch up yet, but I have a blog award for you! Please check out my latest post to receive it, and enjoy! :)

Jennifer said...

I don't know how anyone could ever wait till delivery day. Its too exciting!

alicia king said...

janjannyjan said...

Boy or girl - the baby will be blessed with a wonderful family! Can't wait to find out!!!!!

Maria said...

Ale Loiacono said...

Good luck tomorrow Liz, please let us know too!!! I can't wait to find out and I am hoping it's a boy, just because...
Xoxo!! :)

Janna said...

After reading this post I had to go search for Collin on twitter cuz I just knew he probably tweeted the results. Reading all of his tweets cracked me up. Your hubby is one funny guy. Congrats on #3!

Anonymous said...

Congrats!!! Cant wait to hear the result. Ive got three wonderful girls and love them all dearly but have got my fingers and toes crossed for you and your family. Gina B from Australia

Sarah said...

I didn't find out and loved the surprise! I dreamed a few times that baby was a girl. One day, she even "told" me she would have blue eyes! Now, hubby and I both have brown eyes so chances were slim (his mom and my grandpa have blue eyes). Well... We did have a girl and she does have blue eyes. She's 5. months old and so far they haven't changed! Enjoy!

isabelle said...

alors???? lequel de vous deux est comblé? fille ou garçon? peu importe: un beau bébé va arriver dans une belle famille! parole de mère de 3 fils et une fille!
bonne continuation: j'adore ton blog, ton scrap, et quelle inspiration précieuse! bravo!!!!

Denise Laborde said...

God sent us a third boy (due any day now) and we didn't complainb at all. Even if it's true that changing it up would have been interesting :)
Life is a blessing! Excited for you to find out!

Amy said...

So what was the verdict?! We're dying to know!

Callie said...

A cake in your tummy?!? lol. I wonder if a baba would be easier to deliver..... ;)
