The Big Reveal

OK - which poem is better?!?


Poem #1


Sugar and spice, and everything nice.
A houseful of girls could not hurt.

But hold on to your hats
Cuz our babe is a boy
Who will probably much prefer dirt!


Poem #2

Is it a boy or a girl?
We found out today.
We think we're in big trouble
Cuz a little boy is on the way!

I am going with poem number one...and I am cringing because I am worried its the one Dale wrote. Oh well...let's get past that and just focus on this...

YEAAAAAAAAAA ITS A BOY!!!!

Megan said...

CONGRATULATIONS! You are going to love having a little boy! I sure do and hope to have a house full of them!

Carla said...

I'll be the first to comment. I am so excited for you guys! Can't wait to meet him! My vote is for poem 1.

Mark Nguyen said...

Yours is the first and Dale's is the second? I bet Ivie is going to be thrilled with her new baby brother!

Kaitlin @ More Like Mary said...

Ted and I BOTH vote for poem #1! And congrats on a little boy-how very, very exciting! I had a feeling Ivy would get her wish!

Heather said...

Congrats on having a boy! I will have to agree on Poem #1.

Karyn said...

Congrats! And I vote Poem #1

Mark Nguyen said...

Maybe God DID tell Ivie she was having a brother! ;-)

Brooke said...

I'm going against majority....I like poem #2 the best. I'm a sucker for sing songy rhymes. Congrats..so excited to add some testosterone to the cul-de-sac!!!!!!!

Jill said...

Soooo Exciting! Congrats on the boy! I do like both poems but will give my vote to #1.

Corey said...

Carrie, Greg & Lucas said...

#2 and I'm a frequent commenter, so it counts for 5. :)

Okay -- Both poems are really cute! But, I'll have to go with poem #2 because I'm with Brooke about the "sing-songy" style -- it will probably need to be put to a tune and sung to Ivie when I next get to put her to bed at our house over Christmas. Regardless, we are just so happy that we will have a balanced count of grandchildren ... 4 girls and 4 BOYS ..... WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR YOU ALL AND WE LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!!! Can't wait till Christmas. Love you, Mom

Yay! A boy! So fun! Congrats! I think both poems are pretty great. I'll vote for #2 since I have to pick one!

Jeff said...

I have to go with number 1. Love the rhyming of hurt and dirt--really good in a poem about a boy, especially after the lead-in.

As to second, whoever says boys are trouble!?

And I really think the same person wrote them both--"cuz" is way too colloquial for both Amy and Dale to use it.

Regardless, a healthy little boy will be a perfect addition to the family. Do we get to vote on the name?

Alison said...

Saucy Wench said...

I think poem #1 is the best. And as the mom of a boy, I can tell you that you are in for a treat! Congrats!
