I deleted the poll blog because it was doing something weird to the color of the whole blog.  I don’t know why.  Technology.

In case you haven’t heard, it’s a girl!  I had the most unbearable weekend waiting to find out.  My appointment was on Saturday morning and I told the doctor I didn’t want to know what it was because Dave could be there with me (he had a rugby game in El Salvador).  We, the doctor and I, saw the baby on the screen, got a few nice shots of, uh, the goods, and he printed off the results and stuck them in an envelope without telling me.  I took it home… and it laughed at me for two days.  I meant to do a million things on Saturday to stay busy… I didn’t do any of them.  I did get to talk to Marissa, Jen and Rachel which was wonderful and definitely helped pass the time.  The dogs and I also went to the school (aka Weekend Dog Park) for a good hour of fun-in-the-sun time, which they loved.  Sleep came quickly at around 9pm, which was nice.

Sunday we had doggy play date in the morning then I went grocery shopping.  I also laid in the hammock reading Harry Potter for an hour (I’m on the 4th book now).  Dave finally came home at 4pm and we found out together- and it was worth the wait!

So now the reality is setting in.  I’m going to be someone’s mom.  Not just someone’s mom, but a girl’s mom.  A girl.  It scares me a little.  Most people say girls are easier when they’re little… but then they turn into teenage girls. 

Patrick and Jaime’s brother put it best: If you have a boy, you only have to worry about one ________ (insert your favorite word for male genitalia here).  If you have a girl, you have to worry about millions…

Thanks Patrick.  And Jaime’s brother.
