6 Months with No. 6


So I guess I should let everyone know we’re having another baby. :) I want this post to be light and happy, and focused on the amazing news of our family still growing, but I do plan on sharing my thoughts on carrying a baby after loss at some point, because they are extremely important to me! So the baby is healthy and moves/kicks around like crazy, and I’m due in February.

We ALMOST found out what it was, but decided not to in the end. Our doctor has it in her file, and Derick is still lobbying to just find out this time. :) But let’s be serious, how on earth could it not be another boy? And honestly, anyone who knows me, knows I’d be ecstatic over another boy. If anything, I get offended at all the, “let’s hope it’s a girl!” comments. Lol. I feel like saying, “have you MET my little boys? Because if you had, why on earth would you think I’d care if I had another one of those little darlings???” I’m convinced I have MUCH nicer, sweeter boys than most everyone else in the world who have been parents to those crazy little boys who are giving little boys everywhere a bad reputation!! Ha ha ha. I’d be genuinely excited if it was a boy or a girl, but it does sort of feel like our family was destined to raise handsome young men. :)

It feels good to be able to make some serious plans for the boys’ rooms upstairs again too. They were all just sort of up there in limbo. I didn’t want to hang anything on the walls because I wasn’t sure if everyone was staying where they were. This December we plan to move some boys in together for the first time, should be fun. :)

Kelsey - CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is such exciting news! I know exactly how you feel.. people always seem to pity me that I have all girls but I wouldn’t change a thing. You make the sweetest, most adorable boys. Hopefully someday they will notice some cute little Pankhurst girls in town… :) Congrats again Pam!

Chelsey - So excited for you Pam!! You look so beautiful! And I’m jealous of your well behaved boys and their awesome hair! ;) ha, just jokes, only one of my boys is really crazy. Also I totally got annoyed at the hopefully it’s a girl comment. And now I always get the “You finally got your girl!” And it really bugs me. Oh well!

Amelia Low - You DO have the best, very well behaved boys! I hope I keep having girls and that they date your good boys. I don’t know though…if you had a girl this time then our families would oppositely match if that makes any sense…Is 6 1/2 years too big of a gap for dating/marriage? ;)

Tina Wilde - Can’t believe I spelt “your” wrong. Horrendous.
