One Week Til We Know!

Next week we will be finding out the sex of our little one! Today my mom gave me my first article of baby clothing. It's unisex, of course, even though she is adamant that we're having a girl. It was purchased from a wonderful store in Old Town Alexandria called 10 Thousand Villages. The store is a fair trade organization that markets hand made products from disadvantaged artisans from more than 38 countries. They have unique and really beautiful products and you're helping underprivileged people earn a living (as if you need another reason to shop)!

 About the adorable onesey: Sri Lanka is home to about a tenth of the estimated 40,000 Asian elephants in the wild. However, they're being killed because they interfere with agriculture. The animals have a large appetite and are eating the farmers crops and such. Many people believe that the only way for human and elephant to sucessfully live side by side is for the farmers to be compensated for the damage done. Mr. Ellie Pooh is using elephant resources (find our what here) as a sustainable economic income to help farmers and elephants co-exist.

Yay! Do you have any ideas what you think you might be having? I swore I was having a boy.. I was wrong! I did a post in my blog of all the old wives tales and most of them said girl but I still thought boy. It was fun to see what the results were though.

That's so exciting! Do you have a preference for boy or girl?

We thought we wanted a boy and when we found out we were having a girl, our whole thought process changed. I'm stoked we are having a girl. I wouldn't want it any other way!
