The whole clan piled into the sonogram room around 3:00pm this afternoon and waited with baited breath as our technician, Maureen, finally asked us if we could see “it.” Looking for some small indication of “H3″s gender, we were all a little shocked when she said, “What, you don’t see that big thing right there?” pointing with an exasperated look.

“Oh!” I replied which a chuckle, a bit startled.

“I guess there’s no mistaking that!” Jenny laughed.

Needless to say the kids screamed when they foud out they were getting a baby brother. Let the comments begin! (And keep it clean, guys!)  ch:

What would prose be without descriptive modifiers? Adjectives rule! (Apologies to Tom Hanks’ filmography, circa 1984). Congrats C & J!

Christian Fahey · 6 Jan ’09 at 3:16 pm

OOPS. Tom Hanks 1988 films!

Wayne Thomas Batson · 6 Jan ’09 at 4:31 pm

A BOY!! You studmuffin, you! Okay, so if you hold true to form, you’ll be chosing a name from a male character in your new book. Hmmm, which will it be?



Christopher Hopper · 6 Jan ’09 at 4:33 pm

Kait: Super exciting indeed! Thanks for checking in!

Leah: We’re pretty pumped, too!

Christian: Are you sure it wasn’t Hom Tanks, 1898?

Wayne: That was a shameless plug for our new book if I ever saw one. (And I like it!). ch:
