Valerie’s Tie Breaker // Sharing the News with Her Older Four

We officially have a tie-breaker!! A 5th baby is growing inside me and I can hardly believe it! If you missed our announcement, you can see it, here. With my other 4 at such a fun age right now, I wanted to tell them in a fun way to capture their surprise- and all the emotions!

When we talk as a family, we make comments like “the girls” and “the boys” being that we are an equal house divided so far- 3 girls and 3 boys. But, this new baby is going to be our tie-breaker who will give one side the upper-hand on picking out the movie on Friday nights, relay races in the backyard, and picking a place to eat out as a family.

So let’s dig in… from the mouth of the babes, this is how they felt and if they think the baby is going to be a girl or a boy…


Jude, age 10

How did you feel when you heard the news?
“I was happy, but just so overwhelmed I can’t really explain it. I was crying just tears of joy- I was so happy.”

Do you think it’s a boy or girl?
“I don’t know, but I hope it’s a girl”


Nico, age 6

How did you feel when you heard your having a new brother or sister?
“I felt really good, I did. I thought you (mom) was number 5, but then when you said you’re having a baby, then I knew you were holding it for the baby.”

Do you think it’s a boy or a girl?
“Boy”


Violette, age 4

How did you feel when you found out you’re a big sister again?
“I liked the celebration with balloons. That was fun”

Do you think it’s a boy or a girl?
“Aunt Natalie is having a boy, so we are having a girl. But, I don’t know since the baby is so small right now. I think a girl so we can play dress-ups”


Lily, age 2

How did you feel when you heard the news?
“puppies and babies”

Do you think it’s a boy or a girl?
“A dink…” (which we could interpret as ‘let me think’, haha) Jude asked her and she said “boys”


The sweetest reactions from the kids caught on camera- so much fun! Although we won’t be finding out the gender until baby is born, it’s something we are biting at the bit to know. Stay tuned… only 6.5 months until we find out! 😉
