well, I'll be. . .

A few weeks ago, Grandma Tam gave Emmy and the girls a copy of a Chinese birth calender.  You know the kind?  Basically, you plug in a few numbers and it tells you whether your baby is going to be a boy or a girl.  When Emmy brought it home, she was so excited to show me. 

"Mom!!! It's going to be a boy!  That's what I really wanted was a boy!"  She couldn't contain her happiness.  I didn't want to disappoint, but tried to tell her that that there little calender wasn't actually an exact science.  "I know," she said quickly.

However, I knew she didn't really buy into my pessimism when she immediately asked, "But does this mean we're going to have a Chinese boy?" 

You can bet that's been the joke of the week around here.






Anyway,  just in case you're wondering. . .we did have an ultrasound Friday.  And?  We're in a little state of (happy) shock.  It's a BOY!


(Courtney says he's got a few questions for me if it's a Chinese one.)

That's so funny... on Thursday I was thinking you would probably find out soon, and then again yesterday I thought, she probably knows by now, why hasn't she posted it.... :)

I want another post on hearing the news and everyone's reactions. And I can't wait to meet the little guy (chinese or not).
