Snakes and snails and puppy-dog tails....

.... is what our baby will be made of!! Yes it's true. See below for evidence, clearly marked for those of you who just couldn't tell. :)


Needless to say, Vaka is more than thrilled to have a son/future rugby player and I was disappointed to not be able to shop for ribbons and bows just yet. I am very excited to finally know a gender though so that the shopping can begin!! And I'll be even more excited if we can ever agree on a name. (don't you worry, I will not let him get away with Butch!) It'll be interesting to see how well I can manage to take care of both Vaka and Vaka jr. on my own... at least I should be safe through the first year until he becomes mobile, right?? :)


In other news, we are officially moved, though not necessarily moved-in. :) For those of you that didn't know, don't worry, we didn't go far!! Just further up the hill in Draper to a townhouse (with a garage, hurray!) so we now have a birdseye view of Ikea rather than being across the freeway. Even though it was a short move it was still a lot of work, but luckily we had the help of my family, as I didn't realize how limited I would be!! Currently the baby boy's room is filled with boxes... it was nice to shove them in there and have them out of the way for now but unpacking those will be my project over the next few months. We LOVE having more space and now finally have room for people to come visit, so let us know when you'll be arriving!!

Yea for boys! :) We're kinda partial around here. And good luck with the name part, it's so hard! We didn't decide the first one until right before we left the hospital. Vaka Jr. sounds good to me :)

Congrats!

Congrats on the BOY. Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time for bows and ribbons later. :) Boys are fun too. But poor Makea is still the ONLY great-granddaughter!! :)

Hooray for more space - let us know when your next shindig is, we'll be there! :)

Boys are great! Besides if you're like me, your boy will resemble a girl for the first year of his life! (Robee had long curly hair and long dark eyelashes with bright blue eyes)
Besides it really doesn't matter. I've always believed kids are unisex for the first two years of their life anyway.
AND it's better to have her/him healthy than worry about the sex.
I hope can see you when I come to visit next week. Your dad (my bra) wrote me more in an email than he's said to me in a year! It's a record.
Ta for now.
