...BOY!<br><br>
I have to admit I'm "slightly disappointed" it's not another girl. I really wanted to be able to use all of the adorable girl clothes my daughter barely or never wore. And I really wanted DD to have a sister. And I liked the girl name we had picked out.<br><br>
But this way she can still be the only "Daddy's Little Girl" and it will be interesting to have one child of each gender.<br><br>
I had a dream last night it was a boy. Up until this point I really couldn't tell (though I predicted a girl).<br><br>
And everything looked healthy and normal on the scan so that's great news. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

Congratulations! I think you'll be happily surprised at parenting a boy... our boys have been the cuddliest, sweetest, most loving little creatures you could ever imagine.<br><br>
I hear you on the disappointment, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I like to think that, a year from now, we'll all think we were crazy for wanting anyone but the sweet bundle we have.

Ah, thanks ladies. You're making me feel more excited about having a boy. My DD loves me but she's TOTALLY a Daddy's girl. It would be nice to have one child that favors me for once!

I've never known a young boy who wasn't a mommy's boy. Ds3 is fond of sitting in my lap, wrapping his arms around me, snuggling into my neck and saying "Mommy, I love you infinity." I swear, there's at least one meltable moment a DAY with this kid! Boys are GREAT!!

Yeah, little boys ARE sweet. I love the way ds looks at me like he's in love sometimes. You know how a guy can give you a "look", and you can tell he's thinking, "She's so pretty"? Ds does that. It's so cute. And he totally trusts me, in ways dd does not. He just *knows* I am watching him and taking care of him. Loyal...very. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
