My kids are often asked what they want the baby "to be."
(even though the baby already "is" what he/she "is.")
Up until now, the kids have had no opinion.
Boy, girl--it made no difference.
They were just excited to meet the new baby.
For the first time,
someone has an opinion.
It's probably not hard to believe that when she is asked,
my girliest of girls answers, "I want the baby to be a sister. Because babies are girls."
This picture shows what Ivy
does whenever we talk about the baby.
She is always putting her babies to bed and then tells us to "shhhhhhh."
She is really becoming quite the sweet little toddler.
