Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

….that’s what little boys are made of.

We are so thrilled about having a boy. Couldn’t be happier. I’ll never forget the joy on Dave’s face as he shook the doctor’s hand when she said, “It’s a boy!” Of course, he may have just been happy to be right. After all, he did predict that it would be a boy.

I’m still a smidge skeptical that baby is a boy. Due in part, yes, to my skeptical nature, but also because the doctor originally said, “Looks like a girl.”

So I’m laying there on my back, cold gel on my stomach, and the doctor is trying to get a good shot of the baby. She says nothing until, “Hmmm, looks like a girl.” Very flat delivery, not much excitement or confidence. Dave and I just look at each other unsurely.

Then, “No, wait, looks like a boy.” Just a touch of confidence this time. She continues to look for a better angle and say, “Hmmm….” while looking unsure.

“So it’s a boy?” I ask her.


“You’re not really convincing me here,” I tell her. (Was that rude?)

Now she gets serious with the ultrasound wand thing, and after a minute, “Ok, I’m 85% sure it’s a boy. Hmmmm….whoa! Definitely a boy.”

This is where Dave starts fist pumping and shaking the doctor’s hand. She wraps up the ultrasound after that, hands me some kleenex for the gel, prints us out a few pictures, and then is on her merry way.

“It’s a boy!” Dave keeps saying to me.

So, do you believe it?

    I remember when they told be Garrett was a boy, Clay was jumping up and down. I wouldn’t let him go w/ me to the ultra sounds when I found out for the other 2. I knew if they said boy I would cry and I didn’t want to see that happy face while I was in tears. It sounds awful I know, but wait till your 3rd boy and we will talk! Of course your baby is a boy, have you looked out your front door…there was NO chance that baby was a girl. We could not be happier for you and Dave!

    Yes,i think it was rude to say,”you’re not really convincing me here”,.Are you hoping that your little munchkin will like frogs like his Antie Emma does?Oh and i hope that he doesn’t like snails because they are totally disgusting.
