I am joining in with:
* The One About The Girl *
I thought you'd have a Sister or perhaps a brother
At least for you to play with, one other
I thought you'd be a girl, but the scan said otherwise
When the Sonographer confirmed, I thought it must be lies
You already had a name, you were my little girl,
Instead in a heartbeat, emotions in a whirl.
For names we had to go back, to the drawing board
And then you became Aaron and my emotions soared.
You see I was a girl Mum, but then you were a boy!
Once I got it in my head, my heart so filled with joy.
I didn't think I'd want to dress a rascal with short hair.
But you know YOU are the best dressed; models beware.
You are the coolest little boy this Mum could ever need,
so is it wrong of me to want my girl, is it just greed?
You see I want you to have someone to hold,
When I get my grey hair and am so very old.
I want you to have a Sister, one that makes you laugh,
I want you to look out for her, on my behalf.
Because you'd make a fab big brother, like you do a son,
Because she would look up to you, like I do, your Mum.
Everyday you make me proud, you push the boundaries,
Now that you are 3 years old, you've even learned to tease.
A sense of humour you've got lots of it, a twinkle in your eye.
I hope our twinkle brings a girl, or perhaps I'll cry.
See Mummy's days of being fertile are probably on the wane,
My hopes of seeing my baby girl are going down the drain.
So let us make a wish today, that we can bring her here.
From that ocean in the sky, I'd like to see her near.

It took me 13 minutes to write the above but then 13 has always been a lucky number for me. We got married on our 13th anniversary. I had 13 red roses in my wedding bouquet, and 13 in numerology is a feminine Goddess energy number which is why the number has always been made out to be unlucky - it is NOT! Grasp the power of feminine 13 today, don't delay :-)
Writing the above has made me cry!
