2 for 2
All votes are in! We are having a baby boy on or around March 11, 2012! So far Kira and I are 2 for 2 on guessing the gender of our children. We were pretty certain that Avey would be a girl, and were guessing on a boy for this one, so we’re undefeated this far in the game. We’re very excited, and have begun the long process of choosing names.
On another note, Merry Christmas! We’re staying with Kira’s family this time, and it has been a lot of fun. Avey has more cousins here than she knows what to do with. Last night they acted out the Nativity story. Avey, being the only girl who can walk and follow instructions among the cousins, played the role of Mary, and did a beautiful job.
She was quite insistent that we have a real baby in the manger, but the closest one in the house is a girl and has not felt well, so we suggested we substitute a doll. Avey turned her nose up to the idea, so I suggested we use her little penguin doll, Wheezy (a la Toy Story 2). She loved the idea, so this year the shepherds left their flock to worship a stuffed penguin.
It’s so wonderful to be home for Christmas. We’ll just have to catch up on sleep when school starts back up.
