Something Big

People. Something big is going down. I'm 20 weeks pregnant, which not only means my "kumquat" has grown a great deal in size but also that we find out what we're having today! Hooray.

So I'll let you in on a little secret:

I think we're having a girl.

I tell you this because it's what I'm thinking, but have to warn you that I don't necessarily
feel like it's a girl. With Henry, we KNEW 113% he was a boy. With Ruby, we were pretty dang sure she was a girl. But with this one, I'm not totally convinced one way or the other.

Here are the rest of the family's guesses:

A boy (I think he was just saying that to appease me by giving me an answer. I just called him at work and I think he just wanted to get off the phone.)

Henry wanted to get a little more scientific with his guess so he felt the need to be a little more hands-on:
He says it's a boy.

And Ruby: (Let me ask her ....) Oh great, that conversation was helpful. Here's how our conversation went:

Me: Ruby, what are we having? A girl or a boy?

R: A boy.

Me: A boy?

R: Nope.

Me: So, is it a boy or a girl?

R: Girl!

Me: A girl?

R: Nope.

Maybe this is why 2 year-olds aren't asked for help that often.

At first I read it as that you ARE having a girl. That seemed wierd at first. But now I'm used to the idea. Then I reread it as I THINK it's a girl. Now I'm undecided. Tell us already!

Dear Cel-
When you start fighting with this child because you have no motherly connection/intuition you can give him to Ally and I.

I loved this post--so funny!!! Good luck! Whatever you have, it'll be adorable, since your other kids are stinkin' cute!!!

Celia, are you kidding when you say your 20 weeks?? Because by the look of the picture you couldn't be more than 3 weeks along. I look like that when I am anywhere between 3 to 4 minutes pregnant. Congrats on having another boy!!
