It's a........

Well, if it was a girl we'd be so glad to have one of each. Also it would be fun to have a girl because girls are pretty and they don't pee in your face.

If it was a boy we'd be so relieved that we wouldn't have to buy stuff. Also it would be fun to have a boy because Tommy would have a built-in buddy and Braden (Josh's little brother) doesn't ever want any girls in the family so a boy wouldn't be shunned by the cool uncle.

Josh however was certain it was a boy. No question in his mind. Just a question of when he'd come. My closest friends were certain it was a girl though. "Because this pregnancy just feels different."

So when Dr. Man said "that sortof looks like.....wait, let me try for a better angle......yeah, that's definitely a boy." Josh and Tommy got all excited because they wanted to continue outnumbering me.

OK I'll be honest, that picture is from before Dr. man was even in the room, while the stranger was waving magic wands on my belly Tommy was having a tiny meltdown not sitting on Josh's lap smiling.....Until I convinced Josh to give him a dum dum. Then he was happy.

Afterward we went for the traditional Keva and Great Harvest bread stop on the way home. We sat at the table, sipping drinks and calling/texting a buncha people.

Do you think I could get Keva to pay me for posting this picture?
So I'm thrilled, relieved, exciting, and baffled because if it was a girl I was already sure what her name would be, but the boy name(s) are still up in the air a bit.

So for now, I'm just glad to be able to call him him instead of it.

Also, it's time to start posting pictures of my big fat belly. I can tell because when I stand up in front of Tommy he pulls my shirt out and looks up there and giggles. But I can only hear the giggles, because the belly blocks the view of the adorable laughing face. can go ahead and look forward to that. :D


  1. Amy, Congratulations on the baby being a Boy. I have two grown daughters and always wanted a Boy. My hubby is out numbered all the way! I had a doctor named Man when I lived in Texas, many, many years ago. Maybe yours is his son.

  2. Two boys is awesome... I honestly don't know what I would do with a little girl at this point. Congratulations!

  3. So excited to meet and munch little Whatshisname!

  4. First...congrats on the baby BOY!!! Soooo exciting and how fun!! that a KEVA mug?!? You know, only die hard fans buy Keva mugs. I am so happy right now. :)

  5. Congratulations! In your sex-of-the-baby poll, I totally voted boy.

    That's a cute story about Tommy looking up your shirt. How much does he understand? Does "baby brother" mean anything to him?

  6. Path - I just call the Dr. "Dr. Man" it's not technically his name - but that is FUNNY! It would be cooler if that was is name. :)

    Heather - Tommy gets nothing. He signs baby and points at my belly....he sees other people's baby and does "gently" with his hands, but he has no concept that there is a living creature in my belly....I'm anxious to see how he does with this.

  7. Congratulations! How fun to have two little boys so close in age. Trouble, but so fun!

    But, just for the record, baby girls can pee on your face too. Trust me.

  8. Yeah, and so cute. I love your blog and how you put things. Makes me smile!
