It’s a…

…healthy baby! Try as I might, this tech was too good at hiding stuff for me to get a defining glimpse. (Jen didn’t want to know, so we were going with a “don’t ask don’t tell” approach). We got lots of views of the heart, though. And the brain. The kid has all the necessary organs and limbs, and a profile that bears some resemblance to Natalie’s, though maybe with a more defined jaw. I’m having weird anxiety about raising a boy (which I think is just where any undefined anxiety about a second child is choosing to reside right now), so we picked up some reading on the way home. If it ends up being a girl, well, I can give unsolicited advice to others. (Note from Jen: I am convinced that in buying that book we have guaranteed a girl… but who knows?)

(In the picture just added, Carbo is on the left, and Harpo/Natalie is on the right)



  1. Wheee! Congratulations on the healthy baby!!!

    Jen, do you really think that buying the book was enough to counteract the fact that Blur is a girl? 😉

    And if so, would returning the book help? I could send you my copy.

  2. yay! congrats on a healthy, good brained scan. You guys do make great girls, but I think you would make an awesome boy too.


  3. Congrats on the good news!! Healthy is excellent!

  4. COngratulations on a healthy baby! 🙂 Yay!

  5. Hurrah for healthy babies!

  6. Yay! Nothing better than a good scan 🙂

  7. Congrats on the scan. My mom bought us that book when we found out J. was a boy, and I read it on the beach this summer. I will be quite seriously interested in your analysis…

  8. Congrats on everything looking good!

    And, as the brick layer who was working on my apartment building said to me one day as I was walking by with my sons, “It takes a woman to raise a man!” Or something like that.

  9. For some reason based on the face comparison with Natalie I am convinced you are having a boy.

  10. Glad that all went well. That is always great to hear.

    And since I only have experience with boys..I have to say, they are the best!

  11. Sure looks like a baby all right!!! SO glad for the word “healthy.” Mostly-lurker delurking because of such good news!

  12. Congrats on the healthy baby! What good news!

  13. Healthy is grand!

    I am gunna get that book… please please do me a favour and don’t buy ones by Steve Biddulph – who is recomended under. The stuff he says about single mothers – let alone two women I imagine – and the impact that all women households can have on boys is just ##*&*** unspeakable!
