Well, here's the news! We are having a BOY! Just thought I'd share. Surprisingly, Jonathan and I were laughing tons in the ultrasound room when we saw our little guy come on the screen. We knew it was a boy from the very beginning. He obligingly put his little ding ding out for display for us so we didn't have to wait for the verdict from the doctor. So, we're happy. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I wanted a girl, but, only because I'm exhausted. For some reason I thought that if a girl came into our lives the household would calm down a bit. Perhaps I'm very wrong. Well, I'm getting what I need. The doctor told us that they see tears of happiness and tears of sadness in the ultrasound room. I can't imagine having tears of sadness, unless there were complications of some sort. Having a little life grow inside of you, no matter what its gender, will always bring me happiness. Even if we try again and get another bouncing boy. I guess I believe too strongly that we get what we need. It's not a matter of chance. God lets things happen a certain way so that we can learn and grow the most. So, now we are on a quest for a name that will not put our family into shock but that will satisfy our desire for the original and unique.
Now that we'll have four boys, there is no excuse for not getting an ATV in a few years, right? (I mean, when we have some money to spare. Ha ha!) By that time Atticus will be eating three or four breakfasts instead of two and the shoe purchases will be beyond my imagination. But maybe, just maybe, Jonathan will have a set career and our money will stretch that far.
