Larry's birthday finally got here- a week wasn't too bad to wait, was it?? Georgia and I just tried to keep busy to make the time pass quickly!
When Larry got home from work last night, we got dinner going then sat down together with his b-day presents and The Envelope. He slowly opened the envelope.... took out the card.... opened the card.... and, leaning over so close my nose was almost touching it, I saw those words on the ultrasound picture...
It's A Boy!
We are so excited!!! Georgia will have a little brother to boss around like she already does to the dog! She'll be a great big sis, and one day too soon he'll be big enough to "protect" his sweet sis. And Larry gets to have another boy in the house again! He admitted he was a little relieved, though he would have welcomed a sweet girl with just as much love & excitement.
The ultrasound lady had included two pictures of Hippo's "manhood" in the envelope- to prove it to us, I guess. I promised Hippo I wouldn't post those pictures, but let's just say it was very evident that he is all boy!
Thanks for waiting the extra week with us, and in just about 4 more months you'll get to meet our sweet baby boy!
PS- Want to know the worst part about Larry making me wait a week to find out? He told me he took the envelope to his work so I wouldn't be tempted to peek at it, but last night he revealed that the envelope was really sitting on the desk in our home office the whole time! Uggg!!!We had Larry's family & the Phelps over for chocolate cake & homemade Vanilla ice cream- & singing Happy Birthday!
Georgia went around the room like a little bird saying "Bi, Bi, BI" (Bite!) until uncle Ernie picked her up & fed her half his ice cream!
