Later that evening, the time finally came.
Friends & family arrived.
We ate yummy soup & salad.
Then the moment came.
We gathered all our kids.
Sydney was grinning with excitement.
IT'S A BOY!
Then I watched as my sweet little Sydney...
My heart was a mix of emotions.
Excited that Thomas would be getting a buddy,
But sad for my little girl who had hoped for a sister.
She actually did pretty well, and didn't cry in front of everyone.
Although later we had a little talk to make sure she was okay. She said "It's okay, mom I will love my little brother." Then her big eyes welled up with tears..and she said "but I really wanted a sister." It tugged at my heart to see her so sad for such an innocent request.
