2 to 1

Well, we know.

My wife and I have been blessed with 2 children so far in our lives. Cayce, our 8 (almost 9) year old daughter, and Kyle, our 7 year old son. They have been a joy, a terror, and a blessing all wrapped up in one.

Now, the tie will be broken on June 11th.

I always battled the idea of three kids. First, you move into 5 passenger vehicle stage at all times. My Jeep has become very impractical. Second, you have the whole middle child thing. Third, and I believe most important is what I call the "Roller Coaster factor". There are no roller coasters designed to carry three passengers. All of them either hold four or two. Guess who gets to ride by themselves in this equation. That's right. Dad.

However, I have warmed to our life with three kids. It is going to be fun.

We saw the sonagram last Thursday and it was amazing. We then sealed the result and met a bunch of our friends for ice cream that evening. We let our kids open the envelope in front of everyone so they could share it with many of their friends. Cayce jumped up and down and Kyle was bummed. Yep. Kyle and I are surrounded. Even our dog is a girl. I pulled him aside and told him that us guys are going to have to stick together. He thought that was cool and is now pumped that it is a girl.

So there you have it: Our final score (we think):

Girls, 2. Boys, 1.
