Baby Maggie is going to want a sister. They'd better hit the sack (again) and crank out some more.

She will either be spoiled rotten or tough as nails.

Probably wont have a boyfriend until she is 30.

Or....any of the following:
Decides to change her gender
Decides or lives the alternate life style.
Becomes a monk

I sincerely hope though she grows up in a loving family with good health and fond traditions .

I knew a family like this--my BIL's brother and sister-in-law. She stopped at 11 boys. She should have known. Her husband had 4 brothers. Only 2 girls out of lots of children of the brothers. One is my niece.

I have a friend with one girl followed by six boys. That poor girl cried every time she was told she was getting another baby brother. Her two cousins are boys, too.

On the other hand, my mother-in-law was an only child with all girl cousins, and her cousins' children were girls too. She told her husband that she was sure to have only girls--that's all the women in her family could make!

They had two boys, go figure.

As long as we don`t wind up supporting them, they can keep on going.

Odds of getting a girl = 50%
Odds of getting a boy = 50%

After having 3-4 boys in a row, thinking the next kid will be a girl is a Monte Carlo fallacy.
