Our big ultrasound was yesterday.
We are thankful that everything was measuring on time and healthy so far. Of course, nothing is ever completely secure until there is a healthy baby on the outside in May, but so far, so good…..
And the little parasite floating in my belly is sporting a twig and berries!
We are ecstatic.
For some reason, I just had this feeling that the little blobber was a boy. I always referred to him as a he, and I even told Nadie on the way to the US that I didn’t know how I would react if it was a girl – it just didn’t seem right to me.
So here is the little tyke:
We do have the name picked out, and you can guess from the title what the first name is. I will keep the middle name a secret for his birth. It has to do with a very amazing, saintly person.
I still feel huge. The other day at choir practice a woman asked me when I was due. I said May, and she was obviously confused…I think she was expecting February or March. The doc says that I am on schedule and there is nothing to worry about. It is funny to see people’s faces. I might post a belly pic, maybe, but I will just feel even huuuuger…..
In other news, I have to take the GRE next tuesday. I am not looking forward to it. I took it just out of college and did fine. Of course, now they expect it to be a more recent score. I am applying for a master’s program in the fall, and before you can say ‘Crazy!’ I will say that I plan on starting slow with it – one class a semester. I just want to get started so I don’t put it off any longer. Maybe eventually I will get my PHd, but for now I am focusing on a Masters in Informatics (Human Computer Interaction).
The Zerker is getting a mind of her own. Teach the kid to say ‘Baba’ and she starts firing out orders when she wants some food! LOL Also, she is just starting to get interested in baby shows like Sesame street. It is cute to watch her follow along and get excited. She is still not walking, but she is so close. Her new favorite thing is to sit on Papaws lap and play tickle. Mom said that after he was done playing with her she was in the playpen going .oooooooooooooh tickle! and tickling herself. HOW.CUTE!
I figured it was small enough not to clutter the house, but a good start to an activity table concept.
She has other gifts, but I know she really will have no idea what is going on, and will probably like the wrapping paper better than the toys.
We are off to my Brothers for the annual Christmas Eve Party tomorrow. The Zerker LOVES spending time with her cousins. I am singing with the Choir on Christmas morning and then our little family will spend a quiet day at home.
Merry Christmas to you and yours or whatever holiday or happy day you celebrate!
