It is official! Shannon and I are going to have another baby! We are very excited and filled with anticipation to meet this new little one. We got to see him/her on ultrasound last week -- a squirmy, active, ten-toed, ten-fingered, all-organs-accounted-for, completely miraculous being! We're accepting name recommendations, though we have a few in mind already. And yes, we will be waiting to find out if we're raising another boy or a girl...sorry, the surprise is just too amazing!
Henry is delighted! We have been talking a lot about his role as big brother and he gets all giggly when we talk about "his baby." For many weeks now, he has been patting my belly and saying, "Baby, baby..." Recently, we have been listening to the baby's heartbeat via monitor together -- Henry gets enthralled! This weekend, he even went to the drawer where we keep the monitor and said, "Mama, baby...mama baby..." and then we listened and he kissed my belly enthusiastically. He will be a great big brother!
