Baby is convinced and heart-set on Runt being a girl. Initially this was paired with equal insistence that this girl should have Baby's name, too. After much discussion of how that would be confusing for Nana if they had the same name, Baby has conceded that she would also be okay with her being named Chewman. She invents such great names. And she's still he'll-bent on Runt being a girl. Last week I sat her down and explained that we didn't know yet if the baby was a boy or a girl. She cried & insisted that it had to be a girl because she wanted it to be a girl. It was a major point of contention that surprised both The Hater & myself. So for now we're not mentioning the baby or gender or anything regarding Chewman. We'll find out at the end of June.

So much about this cracks me up! First of all, I love the nickname "Runt." GG is hilarious and I love her taste in names. Veeeery interesting that she so desperately wants Runt to be a girl. Can't wait to see how that all turns out! Hopefully GG either gets her way or somehow realizes that boys are awesome!

I think it's interesting your daughter is so adamant about getting a little sister but maybe not. May your wishes come true.
