what sort of response do you get? I guess I'm a little dismayed, because we didn't really care WHO we had cooking, it's our first and that's special, right? But, there have been a couple of folks--one of my closest friends, actually, who literally said, "oh...gee...a girl...*sigh*", When I told her...and it somewhat deflated the enthusiasm I had for a baby--any baby, really. Made me feel like girls were a bummer. Even though most everyone else has had a wonderful reaction--especially my husband, her reaction sticks in my head. Even after I let it go, she still made a comment a few days later about how difficult girls were, and they just weren't as loving as her "boys". She also is a fabulous seamstress and chose to make her friend who is having a boy (in April--we're due in February) something, and made sure to tell me about it, but never mentioned making our little one anything. Whatever. Right? My husband is over the moon about his "girls" and I am trying to feel the same. Can't help but wonder what the heck she's talking about.
