Oh (Big) Brother!

Four months from the outside:


And from the inside:


Now to review the poll stats. There was an overwhelming majority predicting "girl"--78% to be exact. I was on the side of this heavy majority--the first trimester was different this time, and just like I could NEVER picture Will as a girl, I could never picture this baby as a boy.

Except...HE IS.

He's a healthy boy who really likes to stare at his skeletal fists as he opens and closes his fingers. He's been poking me for a month now, but only in the last week has he become a truly active soccer star, leading Dave to secretly start wondering if this baby was in fact the proud owner of a Y chromosome. He's perfect, and we can't wait to see how he manages to be as handsome and cheerful as his older brother!

(And maybe he'll also manage to be one of those laid-back babies I'm always hearing about? Maybe?!?)

Awesome - congrats! Even though I guessed girl, I'm ok admitting that I'm wrong... and I'm very excited to meet Will's little brother this winter!

A boy!!! Congrats! I had voted girl, so proves I'm not good at guessing gender. So excited for you guys, hopefully you'll be able to reuse some of the baby clothes that Will outgrew so quickly!! Having two boys so close in age will be great, they will be natural playmates for each other!!!

Ummm, he has your genes, Jo, so let's not count on him being -- what did you call it? -- laid back? Congratulations! Can't wait to meet him! XOXO

I refuse to admit I was wrong - lets instead say, my predictions were slightly off base, yet I had made no promises. Now that my legalese is covered - I am so excited to meet Will's little brother! Congratulations again guys!!

YEAH!! Another little boy! I have to say I am a big fan of the mom/son relationship (now that I am lucky enough to know this firsthand). Can't wait to see you guys in Nov!
