We'll Just Get Another One

Adrian loves standing. Each time we put him down, he crawls to the nearest support point and pulls himself up. So today, I casually mentioned to Aaron that he'll soon be walking and soon after that, we won't have a cute baby in the house anymore.

His response : "We'll just get another one. A girl one."

He said it in such a matter-of-fact way too. Just imagine the tone that a person would use to say something like "We'll just get more batteries. Energizer ones.". He said it like that! He wasn't kidding or anything. He had his normal face on and may have even returned to his toys after making his statement.

I didn't want to burst his bubble so I didn't say much. I did want to know why he wanted a girl one though. According to him, they are quiet and gentle so they must be nicer to play with. I think he's been listening in on my conversations too much. Oops!

He's such a little cutie. He loves Adrian and I'm sure he would love being big brother to a bunch of other siblings. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'll survive it. Even with his help :)

I know a family that had six boys before they got their one girl.
