“Well, I already know what it is…”

25 Aug

That’s what the sonographer said almost right after she turned the screen on. So of course, Peter immediately blurted out “It’s a boy!” But the sonographer just stared at the screen and smiled. Then she proceeded to point out a few things to us on the video we were watching of the baby sitting oblivious in my belly, sucking its thumb. “You’re having a little girl!”
If she is as punctual as her big brother, she will introduce herself to everyone by name on January 9th.  In the meantime, I’m dusting the walls with compulsion and scouting Goodwill for bloomers as if that is the only thing she is ever going to wear.
