Oh Boy!

I've been in bed elevating my knee all day and pampering my hand, which feels like a gorilla stepped on it... so I'm not really properly dressed to say...

FINALLY! My sister has announced to the world, well at least Facebook, that my 5th girlie Kate is getting a little brother.

See, I can keep a secret.  I can respect my family's privacy.  Even if it is killing me inside.  These months of silence have given me time to accept that a male will be born into the family.  I was really mad at Jason and his sperm when we found out we were having a boy.  I wouldn't deny it if someone asked if there was a tiny tear shed, no 6th girlie for me.

But now I'll have tales of the boy and his 5 girlies to tell.  Given the personalities of girlies one, two, three, four, and five I expect hi-larity for years to come.

Siobain looks beautiful with our baby boy...

Photo taken on Feb 3rd.

Siobain was in the middle of an animated conversation with Sarah when I took this photo.  She looks lovely... but is really much lovelier than this. She certainly doesn't have a double chin, raised eyebrows, or an open mouth.  Okay, her mouth is open a lot, but you know what I mean.

"Let me take another picture, this one did something weird with your chin."
"No. I am not posing. You should just capture candid moments."
"Hmph, fine."

Anyway.  Hurray ME, I'm getting a baby boy with out any of the delivery pains, late night feedings, or diapers... I'll take the fun time, thank you.

I'll need to search through the photos I haven't been able to share... like how we found out... project!

  1. And this is why being an only child sucks. No more babies for my family. No chance of a boy. And no lovely sister to admire. You are blessed!
