Reasons why I think the baby is a boy...

I know that all of my faithful followers (aka mom and dad...and sometimes Jeffrey - if forced) have been waiting for my next post - and here it is! I have decided to explain why I think this baby will be a boy. There are plenty of old wives' tales that supposedly predict whether the baby will be a boy or a girl....of course I TOTALLY believe all of them! =)

According to these age old wives I am going to have a boy. Here are a few of the reasons why (don't worry....they are all family friendly - I have left some of the more "questionable" ones off - but see me if you're interested!)

1. Since I did not experience morning sickness (thank you, Lord) - it will be a boy.
2. The pencil test (thread through a pencil eraser held over my wrist) moved in circles, not side to side - so it will be a boy.
3. I have been craving meats and cheeses - it will be boy.
4. If the dad-to-be (to save him some embarrassment over this one I will not mention his name) is gaining weight along with the me - it will be a boy.
5. I have been craving salty foods - it's a boy
Who would have thought predicting the sex of a baby was so easy?

We will find out for sure on Monday, but no matter what - boy or girl, we know this baby is a gift from God and we are thrilled just to receive him or her!
"For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well."
Psalm 139:13, 14
