It's a...



BOY! Surprise! He was very active during the ultrasound this morning, squirming and rolling all over.

Last night Kate said something again about a sister. I told her, "Tomorrow we get to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl," and she said, "A girl!" So when I got home today I showed her the pictures and told her she was going to have a baby brother. I said, "He's going to be a little baby, and he won't do much at first. He's going to cry a lot, and sleep a lot. And when he gets older, you can play together, and you can show him how to play with your trains and your animals." And Kate said, "Oh! That'll be great!"

This is the first boy on my side of the family. Now we have to come up with a name!

YAY!! That is so exciting. Too bad you already have all the girl clothes. He can wear pink pajamas, can't he?

I bet Dad is excited to have a grandson. When I told him ours is going to be a girl, he was kind of like, "Ok, girls are nice. We know what to do with girls." It was kind of funny.

I can't wait to get everyone together again.

Yay and congratulations again.

Yay! I've discovered that having a girl first and a boy second is a great way to go. Good luck with the name. It took us forever to find a boy's name that we liked. 'course we also wanted one that was the same pronunciation in Chinese as in English.
