Unique situation with my DH and his brother...

 So MIL (mother-in-law) only had two sons - my DH and his brother (from now on referred to as BIL - brother-in-law).

My Dh and I have five sons.
Tonight BIL and his wife just announced that they are PG with their fourth daughter.

It seems weird huh? That MIL is going to have nine grandchildren - four girls and five boys but the girls are all from one son and the boys are all from the other son.

I know BIL really wanted a son, and his wife said she did too - but then said that she wanted a girl because that's all she knows basically.
But its kind of sad ya know? All the cousins are opposites. The boys don't have any other boy cousins and the girls dont' have any girl cousins (from Dh and I that is...BIL's wife has a niece from her sister).  Sometimes its hard to relate to them as well because it seems like we're in totally different worlds. They don't get the wrestling, bug hunting, etc things that the boys do. And we don't get the things they do with the girls sometimes. We both need to be balanced out. lol

 

I think ever having a daughter is hopeless. I need to just used to the idea. lol I laugh now...but it's not going to be such an easy pill to swallow when we have our last child in another couple years. uggh

That's so interesting!!

I have 1 sister and 2 brothers that are married and having children. Up to now the girls of our family have only had daughters and the boys of our family have only had boys. SIL is pregnant right now and we are waiting to see if she's having a girl, (probably will because she could care less what she has). If she's carrying a girl it will break the pattern, if she's having a boy it will stay.

 I would love to have a boy and we *might* try for a boy in a year or two, but I'm soooo afraid of having another girl, which is not a good place to be if I'm going to risk it through swaying!!

Do you think it's coincidence or perhaps there's more to it?! I am an only child and my BIL has no kids yet, but of all my friends - their families and that of their siblings all seem quite mixed!
