Alright, I'll tell....

The DRIEST most personality-less ultrasound tech in the entire world told me yesterday that there are no boy parts visible. Sooo, I guess I'm able to think pink!!!!! We're very excited and are thinking of girl names!

Did you know??

Did you know that after 4 weeks of moaning and screaming Toby is STILL working on getting his molars through?
Did you know that tylenol and ibuprofen stop working after about 1 week?
Did you know that a doctor will not prescribe anything for teething, even if it has been going on for nearly a month?
Did you know that a doc can charge for a complete office visit to tell you these things???

Oh, and did you know that I'm getting another ultrasound next week Thursday?? Did you know I'm buying a 2 liter of Pepsi this week when I go to the grocery store?? No, not to drink the whole thing, but I intend to have a nice tall glass of it before I go in! Woah, Pepsi at 8:00 am. Maybe not...

Mommy Bragging Rights

After a rough week last week, we received the following note from Evan's teacher on Friday.

Evan did well today at listening and waiting his turn to speak! He responded well to reminders.
He was especially kind to Hope when she came in crying after recess. He gave her a hug, asked what was wrong, got a tissue for her, walked her to her desk, and pulled out her chair for her! :) Wow! Others followed and surrounded her with love!

Awww. Isn't that sweet!

Yes, this is Toby. Yes, he's only 18 months old. Yes, in this picture he has eaten half an apple, skin, core and all! He even picked out the seeds! What a smart little guy! :) He was sitting up on the counter watching "Eemo" the beta fish and he grabbed an apple out of the bowl on the counter. He started eating it! I decided to let it go and this is how far he got on the thing before he gave up on it.

Here are Aidan (3), Evan (6) and Toby (18 months) reading all together. I just wish I could get one of all three of them looking the same way at the same time, forget about them smiling! Oh well, they're all clean, fresh out of the tub. They're such good brothers. Well, I hear the call of the wild so I'd better go answer it.

It's A.....

modest baby. That's right. No difinitive answer. For a while there she thought it might be a girl, but then we all saw something that might be boy parts. Fortunately everything measures perfectly and baby is healthy while not very wiggly and "leg spready"!

Also fortunately my doc says that if they couldn't see the parts well odds are that they couldn't see something else well so they may have to do another ultrasound in a week or two. Dang...
