Its a boy!

Feb 28, 2011 by glennji

This morning’s ultrasound (mostly) confirmed it — we’re having a boy. “And there,” our sonographer commented blithely, “is the third leg!” It took us a moment to decode what she was saying, as she went on to explain that it wasn’t 100% certain but she was pretty sure what she was looking at (we couldn’t tell, mind you). No chance of a closer look, mind you: as soon as she saw it he proceeded to push the umbilical-cord between his legs and cover himself up. Modest, it seems. More modest than his daddy, that’s for sure.

As we walked out we had to admit: we’d thought we were having a girl. Don’t know why, really, but now we’re re-adjusting to reality and scrapping every bit of (unspoken) planning we’d each done. Hmm, names!?

Very happy to see the li’l guy. I wonder if we get another ultrasound before we see him face to face?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
