Psychic Toddler? We'll Find Out Next Week

Nutmeg has become very strident in her insistence that there is a girl baby in my tummy. A couple days ago at Target she wanted to buy some decorative knobs for her changing table that had butterflies and flowers on them. Since I guess the changing table will be used by the new baby soon, I told her to wait until we find out if we are having a boy or a girl.
"We're having a girl!" she told me, exasperated. Every time I tried to tell her that we won't find out till our ultrasound next week, she shouted me down.

Today, I was reading her a book where a girl was buying a balloon for her little brother. Nutmeg was sitting on my shrinking lap, leaning against my tummy.
"If you have a little brother, will you buy him a balloon?" I asked.
"I would rather have a little sister instead," she replied.
"Well, we'll see. I might have a girl baby or a boy baby in my tummy."
"It's just a girl," she told me.
"How do you know?"
"Because I feel her in there."
"With your hands?"
"No," she said, and I thought, Aha! Now she's going to reveal how her psychic powers work. "I feel her with my back," she explained.

Ha ha ha! Well, if you do have a girl, you can leave that last line off when you retell the story. It's much sweeter that way. :)

Well, for what it's worth, I think it's a girl, too, and I have a pretty good track record for these things.

Except, of course, when I was pregnant, and was completely wrong. Maybe my psychic powers come from my back, too, and the baby was obscuring them. :)

Next week, huh? Awesome!
