I was WRONG!!!!!!

I can't believe it! I was so sure! It's been over 24 hours and I'm still having a hard time getting used to the idea. I had no idea how sure I was until this has so rocked my mental picture of my future family. So much for "mother's intuition"!!


I was SURE it was a girl! I knew Isaac was a boy, so I figured my gut instinct was pretty good--I guess not! We are perfectly happy with this news, just a bit thrown (since I have been calling poor little man "she" for months now). I even had my parents convinced...they were talking to Isaac about his "little sister". Poor Peanut...Paul says I've messed him up already by calling him a girl for most of his existence. I mean, I bought a couple of pink things, and I'm pretty sure I even had her name picked out. Now I feel like we are back to square one. Of course, the really nice thing is that...I won't have to buy many clothes! I'm already stocked on the boy things :-). (I will have to buy some things, since Isaac was born in the coldest part of winter, and this boy is coming in the hottest part of summer. A bit of a season difference there...) So here is the fuel we are adding to the fire. (Boys seem to hype each other up, while girls can calm them down. Hence, I came up with the "Are we having fuel or water?" analogy.)

Here is "Peanut Baby" as Isaac calls him. He was obviously very tired of his mommy calling him a girl seeing as how as soon as the tech found him on the ultrasound, he was flaunting his parts for all he was worth.

Waving "Hi"

This is his classic pose. He has done this at both ultrasounds (first one we had was at 12 weeks). He loves his right hand under his chin and his left hand up by his cheek.

More of the "classic" Peanut pose.

A bit of stretching--he has his arms and legs sticking out in front of him. I told him to enjoy the room while he had it, seeing as how soon he will be curled up in a ball for the remainder of his stay :-).

Aww!! Congrats! I did the same thing with Noah. I kinda had a gut feeling it might be a boy, but I'd somehow convinced myself he was a girl! lol.
