Baby Talk

When Garth and I have kids, we both want a boy. Most think I'm crazy because most girls want...er...girls. But I think girls are too high maintance!! This might change in the next 4 years (when we think we will be ready for kids, but who is ever really ready for kids right?), but for now I want boys. The main reason I want boys is because Garth was the cutest little boy EVER. How can you not love this sweet face?!We had a conversation last night about our future little one:
Garth: "I hope our baby has your skin."
Me: "I hope our baby has your curly hair."
Garth: "I hope our baby has my hair and my nose, but your teeth."

We. are. so. weird.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

When my husband and I got pregnant- we wanted a boy sooo bad! We thought we would not do well with a girl at all- I am soo not a girlie girl... but now that I have my sweet baby GIRL.. I cannot imagine life without her!
Girls are just little lovies :) Don't rule them out yet!

Melissa said...

That sounds like a conversation Dustin and I would have. We say things like that all the time.

I really hope our kids get my husbands thick full hair. It really isn't fair that it's wasted on a boy, I mean it's wavy without being unruly and every time he gets a hair cut it looks like someone shaved three small dogs beneath him.

I want boys too! They are so fun and way less maintance (esp. in the teen years). Also, this is kind of mean, but I'm afraid we'd have MASSIVE girls (I'm 5'8" and my husband is 6'5" and both have athletic builds). I always hated being such a tall and athletic girl growing up (it's OK now). I just feel like our genes are better for boys.

You sound just like me. I was so nervous before the ultrasound that it would be a girl--I would have been happy of course, but I remember me as a teenager--no thanks! Your kids will be adorable no matter who they take after!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Haha! My sister wanted a boy too. She said the same thing about girls.

Tabbie:) said...

Jules said...

Geof and I say things like that to each other too. You're not strange at all!
Garth's baby pictures are so cute!

Chelsie said...

I want boys too. Maybe one girl would be nice, but definitely boys to start out with.

The Pink Chick said...

Garth was a precious little boy! That little face is just the cutest! My husband hasn't said if he wants a girl or a boy, but I would love to have a little girl. I actually think one of each would be nice!

Megan said...

Haha, I don't think you are weird! We have very similar conversations! I would like to have a boy first also!

Tara Gibson said...

such adorable pictures! drew and I talk all the time about what our kids may look like..

Taryn said...

Girls are kinda high maintenance- but they have the cutest clothes!

SassyEngineer said...

How cute! I always wonder what our children will look like someday :)

mrs.leah.maria said...

We wanted a boy as well, lucky us. :)

Tony and I also have our list of wants, too funny that you got down to the teeth!

Kim & Ryan said...

He was a cutie, but I'm sure you were too.

Your conversation is funny. We've had similar conversations. I hope our kids have pretty much everything from Ryan.... =)

Lump said...

awww too cute.

you know, when you wish for a boy... you usually end up having like five girls! ;)

Susie said...

I have a boy ...for almost 15 yrs now and it was great raising him~ I think it's easier.. I cried and cried when he came out all boy! I wanted our family to have a big brother. AND i got to name him after my wonderful Dad~

pocket full of pink said...

We both want a boy too. There are 3 girls in my family and 3 boys in Rob's family - and we both agree that his mom probably had an easier time than mine. Girls are so emotional! Ha! But obviously we'd be blessed to have either. Sooo, any little kiddos any time soon? Pregnant women blogs are so fun to read! :O)

GIRL FROM THE LAND of 10KL said...

Coming from a family of four girls, I'm not sure that I'd know how to take care of a boy, but I know when J and I get married and start making babies, I'll be happy with whatever the stork delivers!

Have a great day =)

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

I tagged you, check my blog!

Sarah said...

You and Garth are too cute. (And ye, Garth was an adorable baby)

It is funny you posted this because last night I was thinking to myself how much I wanted my future children to have Micah's skin tone and eyelashes :)

Undomesticated Newlywed said...

A and I have these conversations all the time. I want our babies to have his hair and checkbones, but my skintone and ears...haha

Mrs. Hibit said...

I've always wanted a whole "flock of boys." Because boys love their moms, while girls throw tantrums. I have no desire to put up with what I put my own mother through when I was a teenager! This is my theory, and I'm stickin' to it.

i Do {blog!} said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! Looking forward to following along with yours!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

You guys sound like Mr. Guru and I. I really hope our kids have my nose and not his!

B said...

awww, boys are so cute. I've been so set on having a girl but I've been leaning more towards boys:) You guys are super cute.

Megan said...

We have hopes for our future babies too.. :) You & Garth are going to have some super cute babies!

Jon and Steph said...

I so want boys too! I was always a bit of a tom boy, even though I cheered through my entire school career and my family only sees us with boys!

But at the end of the day, when Jon and I do have babies, I'll just have whatever the Lord will give me! Although I hope he gives me a boy ;)

You're too cute!

bekah said...

haha that sounds just like matt and I

C said...

aww so cute! I have no idea what to do with a baby boy. No brothers.. and marriage is my first introduction to the ugliness that can be male habits. :) Good luck lady! I imagine we'll have kids about the same time!

Mara (The Wedding Cabaret) said...

Rachel said...

So cute though!

Elizabeth said...

My husband and I have also gone over all the specific genes that we would like our child to have from each side of the family. Its fun to imagine what they will look like. :)

Mrs. Cup said...

Yall are cute! We do the same thing! :)

LyndsAU said...

Yall are so cute :) I want one of each really bad, but whatever God blesses me with I will be thrilled over :)

Sarah said...

haha! No ya'll aren't weird I think every couple has that conversation! Hubby and I talk about it all the time! I think I'd be happy with a boy or a girl, I don't really have a preference of course I'm that will change.....

J.L.S. said...

I soooo want a little boy when the time comes! I don't think it will be too hard... Scott comes from a family of all boys! :)

I eventually want a girl... but I'm dreading the teen years with her.

Lis said...

We have these talks all the time!! SO cute!! And I also want a boy (one day..) I just know if we were to have a girl she would be super high mant. like me - lol!! :)

Mika said...

I like yours too!! Bring on the recipes!! (even if you don't make them! ha) Glad you became my blogging friend.

Lea Liz said...

Oh girl.. My husband and I had those same conversationgs even up until the day Brody was born..haha oh and your husband was a little cutie!!

Mrs. S. said...

Haha...funny thing is, Mr. S. and I have those same convos. Must be more normal than you think!

CENA - My.M.Spot said...

boys vs. girls. they are sooooo different! my son will play with a baby doll and then start banging it's head against the wall. he's so rough. but yes, in the long run, girls end up dramatic and high maintenance. i'm preggo with my third, and i really think i want another girl though...
but i don't care as long as it's healthy. it's fun to guess and plan your future children!

A Balancing Act in Heels said...

You're so right. Girls are so high maintenance. I have two of them...and good lord, everyone knows that there can only be ONE queen in the house!!

BTW, I love your blog too!

M and G said...

awww how cute!

My name is Megan... said...

aww that is sweet. you guys will have beautiful kids!! xoxo

Erica said...

GIRLS ARE THE WAY TO GO!! I do NOT want a teenage girl like myself...DRAMA!! :)
I really like your blog and I'm having a lot of fun catching up!

The Rauths said...

you are funny! watch, you are going to have multiple girls! =)

Rachel said...

What a cutie pie!!!!

Chris and I talk about kids a lot, we're thinking maybe next year for us. And it's true, I do kind of want girls - but because I grew up with 2 sisters! I don't know about little boys! But, I'll be happy with either.

mebeingrandom said...

Another item we have in common!!! I also want a boy. (If Hubz and I decide to have kids)
And I have a picture of Hubz from when he was about 18 months, that I carry with me everywhere!
