WE ARE HAVING A BABY BOY!!!
The sonogram was Thursday and there was proof beyond the shadow of a doubt. I mean there was no shadow whatsoever. Just good ol' fashioned boy anatomy. Graphic stuff, I tell you so I'll only send those pics to family :)
Here are some precious first snapshots of our baby, who Samuel has affectionately dubbed, "Baby Donut".
Why "Baby Donut" you ask? Well, just look through the archives and study the posts labeled "Samuel".
You should find the answers smack dab on the face of my goofball son.
Everyone had pretty much guessed boy. Everyone but me. I have a proven track record of guessing the wrong sex and this pregnancy has proven no different. We are all thrilled and couldn't be more excited. Well, Samuel is a *tad* excited but has expressed concern over the "skeleton" being stuck in my stomach and he is a bit put out that he cannot play soccer with the baby or "fight him" when he is born. Patience son.
Both will come all too soon :)
One of our first purchases. The navy blue coverall set from Pottery Barn Kids was 75% off.
About that cake at the top of this post. I gave the spill to my girls about baby showers the other day and man, were they disappointed. After I gave it some thought I realized how completely and utterly unfair this whole process was and I have decided to start my own #4 Baby Shower Etiquette. Basically it goes something like this:
Baby Number #4 = Cake
No matter what. I don't really care about the shower or the gifts.
I really care about the cake and the sherbet punch.
So I can make the punch and Jenn, you can make the cake. Surely you can pull off fondant babies and a minimum of three layers, right? Come on girl, you know you want to!
Or maybe this one?
Of course I could make the cake, but it would likely turn out like this one....
Tasty, I'm sure but it just doesn't quite whet the appetite the same way, does it?
There shall be no more cake discrimination. Write it in your book, Emily Post.
I can smell the winds of change....and they smell like vanilla frosting.
