We had already told the kids to line up in birth order and I handed them a number to hold that corresponded. Once every one was lined up and Tammy was ready, I pulled out the #9 sign.
"Um, wait a minute?!!" I said. "What's this? Why do we have a #9...what do you think that means??"
My know-it-all G12 replied, "Mom, that's an upside down 6." Hmmmmm.
"No," Dad said, "that's a #9. Why do you think we have it?!"
Here is their reaction...
G12 finally gets it!
They were definitely surprised, which surprised me. I figured the older ones had noticed how sick I had been for the prior couple weeks and were already in the know.
E9 was most expressive. I asked him what this look was all about and he said he was thinking about all the dirty diapers!
L4 looks so sweet here. It's hard to imagine I started this blog when I was expecting her.
Here the little ones try to figure out what it all means.
I had my second appointment this morning and all is well. Once again, we heard a strong heartbeat and my midwife says it definitely feels like a 'baby #9' in there and 'not a baby #9 and 10'. Also, I was excited to schedule our ultrasound for the next visit in mid-January. We always find out what we are having and I've been pinning ideas for a gender reveal party. What do you think? Should we do a gender reveal party? Still trying to decide.
