back in january when we decided to stop stopping it, and went ahead and stocked up on tests. judah snatched the box out of my hand and gave me a look like, "excuse me, WHAT is the meaning of this? am i not good enough for you?"
5. gender. yup, i still want another boy. at least 70%/30%. i won't be as crushed as i would have been if judah had been a girl (that was 99%/1%), but the proximity of these two really makes me want a boy so they'll be best buds like jesse and jake who are 26 months apart (and it still took them a good 16 years to get over the big/little brother syndrome). plus, geez i don't want to have to buy a ton of new clothes. and of course because i just have never really wanted to be a mom of girls. i would be pleased as punch to have 4 boys. i'll clean pee off the toilet seat for 25 years to avoid the drama that i caused my parents (although that may be a keight issue more than a vag issue). i think there definitely won't be tears if this ultrasound shows girl...just a lot of intimidation.
aaaand just like daddy, here was judah's reaction when i told him and showed him the first mark his little brother or sister had made on the world (aside from the seren-vom). thank god for the inventor of the pee cap. still pretty gross.
8. reactions. we told my parents a few minutes later when handing off the bug. i said, "y'all take extra good care of him because he's going to be a big brother." my dad said, "lord have mercy" and my mom said in a trembly little voice, "you're pregnant again?" they are so funny. after the shock they were really excited for us.
