i have to admit that i had grown tired of saying "the baby".
it just seemed like it needed an identity.
and we had decided we would wait to find out whether we would say he or she until feb. 9th, or whenever he or she was born.
but we decided that at 10 weeks:
at 14 weeks, i was feeling a little antsy:
and by 18 weeks, i couldnt hold out a moment longer. I was two blocks away from going to the walgreens and buying one of those gender prediction kits.
at 20 weeks, the camera ran out of battery, and a bad quality photo was taken. see below.
and so at least now, we dont have to refer to it as "the baby" or he/she, or shim.
we can say him.
now, the 19 week countdown. how much can i actually get done in 19 weeks?
