[Comments] (15) They say I should buy pink: I didn't plan to find out the gender of this baby when I went for an ultrasound today. I didn't want to be disappointed about such a silly thing as gender. All the wiggles and kicks are miracle enough to pleased with the entirety of this little package. And I love my boys. I'll take boys any day. But it seems to be a girl.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Hooray Alyson!! Warning: buying pink can get very addicting and expensive!! That is great news--thanks for sharing!

Hooray! I can live vicariously through you with a new baby and maybe even a few cute pink things.

Congratulations! Having a girl is so much fun, and it's true that buying pink is very addicting.

Ginger told me the news yesterday, and I am so excited for you and Dave!!!! I love having a little bit of pink in my home, and I am so grateful I was given the opportunity to raise a daughter. (Although countless people have told me that my one daughter will give me more trouble than my 5 boys combined -- I guess time will tell)
I am so happy for you guys (and trust me you won't fully believe it till you have her in your arms). I love you. I am most curious to hear about how your boys reacted to the news, I will have to call you.

Girls are fun too!

Wow- that is big news. When they told me I was having a girl with Makenna I didnt really believe it either and I hardly bought any pink- I was too worried they must be wrong. I'm excited for you and your family though- it will be a fun change!

Alyson - YEAH! How special to have a chance at mothering a girl. Not only will you be buying pink, but think of all those books you'll get to share with her! Congrats.

Congrats, friend! I'm so thrilled for you.

Oh, I am SO happy for you... a little blonde in braids running around with 2 big brothers for protection! :)

How exciting! I love every second with my boys, but it would be fun to have the chance to parent both genders. What do your boys think?
