The Satcom curse is alive and well in our household.

And we are having another girl.

For those of you not familiar with the "nerdy" side of the Army... the satcom curse is something satellite communication soldiers believe in.  It all goes back to our time at Fort Meade way back in 2010.  Soldiers believe(d) that all their time spent near radiation kills off all of the male sperm and they are destined to have only girls.

This was 7 years ago... but we have 2 girls already and found out just about two weeks ago that this baby I'm almost halfway done cooking is also another girl.  Dashing my husbands hope of having a boy of the human variety and not just the furry kind.

Of the people we were stationed with at Fort Meade... I can count on one hand the couples that left and had boys.  Most of us?  Have girls.

It is what it is though and we are very excited to welcome this baby come April.  My husbands shock was very evident for a few hours, but baby #3 already has a name (that was decided upon within 24 hours - beating all other naming time periods by days) and I've already started scooping up some of the cutest baby girl items as I come across them.  Unfortunately I thought we were done having kids so I had started selling off most of our baby gear... but still hadn't sold the majority of our baby girl wardrobe.  So a loss and a win.

All I know is I can't wait to go through the newborn phase just one more time.  There is nothing sweeter.
