It’s A Boy (Again)!
Chrissy and I went in for her ultrasound appointment yesterday to find out the gender of “Baby 2.0″. After sitting in the waiting room for over an hour (or sleeping on my shoulder, in Chrissy’s case), we finally got in to take a look at things. This, apparently, requires half a gallon of green goo, applied liberally by the technician. She walked us through all of the baby’s body parts and internal organs, verifying that everything existed and seemed to be functioning properly. But Chrissy was only interested in one particular part (or its lack thereof).
Baby 2.0 was not being cooperative in the least. We kept getting slight glimpses of what may or may not be proof of gender, but Chrissy would stand for nothing less than concrete evidence. Even the doctor who sat in on the examination couldn’t give us a 100% certainty. He said that he would give it 70% odds on being a boy. Chrissy was not having it. So, she was rolled over on her side for fifteen minutes to cause the baby to change position. Now the technician got a clear view of the package, and the doctor then confirmed it. So, we’re officially having another boy on July 22nd, 2008.
Now we just need to decide on a name. We had chosen “Addison Riley” as a girl’s name, but now we don’t need that one. Chrissy has liked “Jacob Anthony” since before Aiden came along, but I don’t like either name. I’m currently partial to “Charles Montgomery”, but Chrissy says no to both. We both like the name “Lucas”, but Swavek has given us a multitude of reasons why we should not bestow that curse upon our child (playgrounds swirling with insults such as “Lucas Mucus,” “Lucas Puke-us,” “Luke Skywalker,” etc.). So the baby is still “Baby 2.0″ for now.
