a mother's intuition... or Mia's

Bow c/o Beck and Belle Bracelets c/o Poppy Lane and Co

Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I kept thinking we were going to have a boy. I couldn't tell you if that feeling came from intuition, or the fact that I only had a boy name picked out, ha ha! When I shared the story of how we surprisingly found out the gender early, I mentioned that I wasn't surprised about a boy, especially since Mia told me she was getting a baby brother. So here's the story :)
On March 5th, exactly one month after discovering I was pregnant (and Mia telling me that night that there was a baby in my belly) Mia told me the baby was a boy. We were doing our nightly ritual of rocking in the chair, reading a story, singing a couple of songs and praying before tucking her into bed. She mentioned the baby (with no prompting from me) and patted my tummy. I told her that baby loved her, and she replied with what sounded like she was trying to call the baby "baby brudder". So of course I asked her if the baby was a girl or boy?... She got a huge smile on her face and said, "BOY!" 
Big sister was right!! I just love how in tune Mia has been with my pregnancy! Baby brother is the luckiest ever to have Mia looking out for him!

So sweet! It is so wild/special how intuitive we can be as humans! I wish I could hear her little voice say baby brudder!

Smart Mia!! I've heard stories of that intuition before with young kids and their siblings. I know a lady that was going in to get her tubes tied... she was explaining the process to her daughter (board overview, of course!) to let her know that mommy wouldn't be feeling well for a few days and her daughter responded with "no you're not, you're going to have another baby and it's going to be my little brother!" Sure enough, she went to her appointment and they couldn't do the procedure because she was (shockingly!) pregnant and months later had a baby boy! There's got to be some connection there between siblings that we just can't see :)

Aww, that's so sweet! I'm glad she wanted a bro right from the beginning and didn't have her heart set on a sister. She's gonna be a great big sis :)
