Best of Hormones

Here are just a few things that have made me cry in the past week:

1) Being so excited that my Dad was coming to visit.
2) Realizing that him visiting would mean that he would leave, and crying over that, BEFORE HE ACTUALLY GOT HERE.
3) Being so tired.
4) My Dad getting here.
5) Accidentally sneezing on Grant's face.
6) A parking attendant in DC who was mean to me.
7) Finances (or lack there of).
8) My Dad actually leaving.
9) Grant telling me he hates it when I put something cold on his bare skin.
10) Thinking I am no fun (i.e. a fun-hater)

Okay, who wants to come live with us?

Best of Surprises

It's a boy! We went in for the 20 weeks ultrasound yesterday, and I was SURE it was a girl. So sure that Grant also thought it was a girl, but he was just riding on my coattails. And we were both -- wonderfully -- wrong. When we went in, Grant told the radiologist that we wanted to know the sex, because our doctor told us they wouldn't necessarily reveal it. She told us that she would try, but no promises, because sometimes the babies aren't willing to share. But as soon as she put the wand on my belly, Littles showed his stuff! She laughed and said we were definitely having a boy, and then he kept trying to show it to us -- in case there was any doubt -- the rest of the appointment. He is so cute! I'm sure he will be brilliant and stubborn and clever and sweet, and I'm already one of those moms apparently, because I'm about to show you his picture! I think he is the cutest thing ever and I've never even seen him in person yet :) During the appointment he got a little squirmy, and then kept trying to suck his thumb (but only ended up hitting himself in the head repeatedly). He's determined, too!

The last question Grant asked the radiologist was if he could tell if the baby was left-handed (Grant's really pulling for another lefty). She looked at us like we were crazy (and, let's be honest, we are), and Grant is taking that as an affirmative for the left-handedness.
