"Will you be trying for a boy?"

Yep, that's the conversation my OB started while she had me up in stirrups at my 6 week post-partum follow-up today. She had asked what our preferred method of birth control for the immediate future would be, and I told her that I would just be charting to avoid and "if it happens, it happens". Although I must say we're hoping that my cycle won't be returning for 11 months like last time...

I have heard this, "will you be trying for a boy?" question a handful of times now and each time it irks me a little bit more. Why does everyone assume that you want a child of the opposite sex? Back before we knew Aurelia was a girl, I truly didn't have a preference. And even now? I still don't. I'd love to have a boy - especially for Mike - but more girls would make me just as happy. I think I need to confess, though, that I don't think I'd be sad if we are never blessed with a boy. Why does this pain me to admit?

We know that our family isn't complete yet. I'm not sure how many more children we'll have, but I am sure that we will be happy and feel so blessed regardless of their sex. I did promise Mike, though, that he could buy a motorcycle if we end up with 4 girls (ha!)

My girls. My everything.

Is anyone else with me? Would you be fine with having all boys or all girls?
