I can't believe it, but my boys want a sister! I didn't want to tell my almost 10yo, because he has been pretty vocal and adamant about not wanting me to have more kids. DH told him and he wasn't happy about it at first. But it is so sweet how he is coming around. When I went for the ultrasound, the tech gave me a paper that listed what is going on with a 9 week old fetus. I left it on the table, and the next morning, he came and woke me up and said "I read that paper about the baby. I didn't know all that; that's neat what all it can do already." He was happy to find out it isn't twins, and said he could "deal with" just one. But then he surprised me by saying he wants it to be a girl. I was like, "Really?!?" and he said "Yeah, I already have a brother, I would like to know what a sister is like." And then Daddy and I were talking to our 2.5 yo, and said something about the baby and I said he might have another brother, and HE said, "NO! I want a pink one!" We said "WHAT?" and he said "I. WANT. A SISTER!!!!!" All this has totally surprised me! DH really wants a girl, too....I am the only one who would prefer another little boy, because the thought of a daughter scares me!
I think that is so cool, MaerynPearl, that your baby can tell something is up! And the cats knowing, too. We have a doggie, and I haven't noticed that she is acting any different. But honestly, we are not that close and mostly ignore each other anyway!
edited to add: I already made her a couple of dresses though! I used this free pattern.
