Baby Bridger

To all of you out there that guessed it's a boy, you were right! I had my ultrasound this morning and found out officially, although I have to say I've been calling him a boy all along. I even started calling him Baby Bridger and Phoenix picked up on that really fast. So my belly had offically become Baby Bridger even before we knew what we were having. I would have felt bad if it did turn out to be a girl and we had been calling her a boy this whole time.

Phoenix came to the ultrasound with me and Dave. He thought he saw the belly button a few times. Dave tried to explain to him that baby Bridger doesn't have a belly button yet. Phoenix said, "Huh?" And then the ultrasound tech said she found the baby's turtle. Well, Dave tried to explain this to him too. "You see Phoenix, baby's have turtles inside instead of pee pee's." "What?" and if any of you know Phoenix it was more like a "WHATTT?" Well, he'll be messed up for life thinking there is a turtle inside mommy along with the baby.

But we're all really happy to be adding a new boy to our family. Sequoia may become a big tom boy with two brothers but I seriously doubt it. She really loves her dollys and clothes. She's a good little mommy. My due date is still July 2nd and they said the baby looks healthy. I would post the pics but don't have a scanner so that makes it a little difficult. We only got two pictures. We got a really good picture of the arm and hand where you can see all five fingers and the other is of the "turtle." We didn't get any face shots. His head was tucked under and sort of hard to see but we did see it. It's always such a neat experience to see your baby while it's still in the womb.

Congratulations! I'm sure Phoenix was just priceless in the room with you! Thanks again for the call!

Awwww, so exciting! Congrats! The "turtle" story is funny. And don't worry about Sequoia, she'll be fine. Lily is still such a "girly girl" with 2 brothers, but she's also "tuff stuff" having to deal with all the boys. Good luck on the rest of the pregnancy! So fun once you know for sure what it is! Congrats again!

I remember Phoenix mentioning in Sunbeams that he was going to have a baby brother named Bridger. I wasn't sure if his comment belonged in the same category as, "I have a cat named Brownie." I'm glad to hear that you have reaffirmed the truth! :)
