In an attempt to further combat our increasing tolerance to the cuteness levels in our lives, we decided to up the ante. So on or around July 4th 2008, we’re upgrading to toddler, dog, and INFANT. Simon says that he wants a sister, and he wants her to be named “Pretty Girl”. We’ll take whatever God provides and be ridiculously happy, boy or girl.
I’m so glad that I’m finally able to share this news, as sitting on it was killing me. We’re really, really happy, of course. Although Kate’s happiness is somewhat tempered by the crippling “morning” sickness that has accompanied this pregnancy. Let’s go with All Day and All Night Sickness (ADANS) from now on, shall we? Because that’s what it is. It’s been a bit better the last week or so, but Kate basically had to write off December and half of November to being crippled by nausea.
And in an only slightly related observation, compare the sonogram above to Simon’s 8-week sonogram here. Either technology has come a long way in the last 2 years, or our OB got some nice new equipment.
