Not weird to me. I feel badly for our 3rd, especially since he's the "odd man out", having two older sisters. Obviously, there's no guarantee that he'd have a brother if we have #4, but it seems like he'd have a "partner".

We want #4 because we feel the same way! My first two are only 16 1/2 months apart, so we feel like our third baby is going to be like odd man out! I am hopeing for a girl this way we will have 2 and 2!

Just lurkin', not ttc just thought I'd throw in my two cents.

I LOVE having an even number. I am a big fan of the buddy system and it works well for us.

I think that it makes sense, that way no one is ever left out.

I wanted a even number to 6 siblings and it also seemed like one of us was left out ! One of us always had to be the only person for that ride siting alone while the other six we're partnered up. My husband's family had an even number for years his youngest two brothers are 6 years apart and the others are all very close in age. So he's had both and liked the odd number better when they voted for things it was never a tie.

We wanted a even number in the end but got pregnant with twins so I guess it's an odd number for us especially because I don't want to buy a bigger van
