We put everyone who guessed "boy" into a drawing for a $10 Starbucks giftcard. Our lovely Isabelle Rose drew the name, and the winner is... The CAULLAY'S!!! [Who suggested the names Captain (Kevin's suggestion) and Aidan (Bernadette's suggestion)].
"Oh, that's definitely a boy, there's no mistaking it," our tech said. You should have seen the look on Aron's face! He was totally expecting them to pronounce girl. When she said, "Look there's his penis.." Aron's jaw hit the floor, but at the same time, he had the hugest grin. Then he started pumping his fist in the air exclaiming, "Its a boy, its a boy!" I am so excited to have a son, but scared to death! What will I do with a little boy?!?! You all will have to show me the ropes!
Well, what can I say. Despite the fact that my brother says I have all girly sperm, looks like this little guy made it through (he's not even born yet and I'm proud of him!). I have to say I am super excited to be having a boy. I don't know why, but I had pretty much conceded to the fact that I'd be one of those dads with six girls going on seven trying for a boy! But, it looks like the Lord had mercy on me and decided to balance the scales around here (and He knows we need it--between Isabelle and her mommy there is way too much estrogen and drama around here!). I'm with Grandma Jean, too: out with the Barbies and pink and in with trucks and blue (and flying V guitars/loud rock music, of course)! Hooray!
Thanks to all for participating. We had as much fun reading your comments as you all did writing them. IT'S A BOY!
