Sugar and Spice/Snips and Snails

Oh hey, guess what? It appears I can make a girl baby after all!

This fourth baby (due, incidentally, on October 16) is a girl. Sugar and spice, here we come! Though with three big brothers, I suspect she won't be able to avoid the snips and snails* part.

* A not-very-definitive explanation of what "snips" might actually be is here if you're interested, which I was.

I was just thinking that in the days of yore had you been married to a king (and were therefore likely a queen), you'd have produced the heir, the spare, the one for the church, and now one to marry off into an advantageous alliance. Good job! And very good it's not the good old days. It'll sure be fun to see whether she'll have her brothers wrapped around her finger or be one of the guys.
