Patience is a Virtue

My, my, my ... we are an impatient lot, aren't we?

I can't believe how many of you are requesting (some, pleading!) for us to find out the sex of our baby. I'm dumbfounded!! :)

Just so you understand: no amount of "pleases" will change our minds. Ya see, we don't mind the wait. To us, it would be like opening a gift before Christmas ... it's just not the same as opening the gift on Christmas morning.

(Now, that's not to say that I don't try to wheedle out of Jorde exactly what he's getting me...but it's all in fun...and eventually, it bugs him, which, ya know, is kinda fun, too!)

However, waiting to see "what" we're gettin' in May? Not so hard, and the anticipation is part of the excitement. There are so few surprises left in this life, we want to fully enjoy this one.

Plus, I want the chance to say "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" and it actually be news!

So, dear friends, know that I love you, but you're outta luck on this one :) Let this be a lesson in patience ... and let the guessing begin!
