It's A BOY!!!

So we went in to get the baby checked out today. He looks healthy and very active. VERY ACTIVE! Oh, yes, I did say boy! Beth is a little disappointed because she wanted a baby girl to share her room. Eric is happy, and thinks we should name the baby "Gordon" from the Island of Sodor. (He picked Gordon after I told him there was no way we would call the baby Thomas.) Here is a profile shot.
Here is a shot of him stretching. You can see his feet braced against one side, and although it is hard to see in this picture, his hands are above his head pushing against the other side. (the dot of stuff you see above him is the cord.) This could get painful as he keeps growing.
We are all happy and healthy and ready this kid to get here. (I'm ready for Beth to stop trying to tickle the baby through my stomach.)

Congratulations!! Now you just need to convince baby boy to be gentle early in his existence. Those are good shots, even I could see him and not just a blob.

Wahoo!!! Congrats. Eric will have so much fun with a brother . . . and so will Beth actually. When I saw the pic of him stretching it made my tummy hurt for you! :-( Sorry. Tell that little guy he'd better be nice to Mommy or Aunt Margie's coming!

YEEEEEHAAAAW! I'm glad I thought to check your blog today. I haven't checked any blogs in ages. I am so excited you're having a BOY! It seems as though everyone else is having (and have recently had) girls. Not that gender matters that much (as you and I have found with our own children), but it's just kinda fun that we're both having boys right now. Congratulations! Doesn't he have an adorable face!
