Note To My Future Son

I told myself that I would not turn into the woman who posts her ultrasound photos on the Internet. And yet...


Here you are. And I'm completely smitten.

(Even though it looks like you have no arms.)

(Not that there's anything wrong with that. I would still totally adore you.)

(And, I mean, look at Lieutenant Dan, from Forrest Gump. He did okay.)

(Wait, nevermind, he was missing legs. Plus, he was kind of a dick.)

(But you get my point.)

  3. Congratulations on your son!! If it helps, the ultrasound pics of my baby show no arms, but one hell of a chin. I think I'm having an armless leprechaun.

  4. Yay! A boy!!!??! I don't believe it until I see his little baby penis on an ultrasound pic on the internet.

  5. Yay for little boys! I decided long ago that when I am pregnant with my son I will go to a public venue (I prefer a grocery store) and yell at the top of my lungs, "I HAVE A PENIS INSIDE ME!!!". This is my dream. You can borrow it if you want to.

  6. Congratulations!

    Yesterday, when I read your post, I predicted a boy but forgot to post a comment. Does it still count? ;-)

  11. I'm all into cutesy-baby stuff today since I have a niece as of this morning. Wouldn't it be blogtastic if my niece married your son? Awwww

  12. Awwwwwwwwww :) Congratulations. So awesome.

  13. yeah! congrats! thank God for little boys - they are the best. plus you can make all kinds of jokes about how long its been since you had a little penis inside you :) seriously, he looks perfect.
    makes me wonder how anyone can think abortion should be a womans choice - i can sympathize with the unwanted pg, but i just can't come to terms with our world being ok to snuff the little one out no matter the circumstances.

    I'm so glad you broke down and decided to slum it with the rest of us soppy moms! :) Wait til he's a little piece of perfect sleeping soundly in his crib; you'll never see anything as beautiful. And its cliche, but it goes FAST! Allow yourself the time to be smitten.

  22. Una. I don't know if anyone has told you yet, but you appear to have a baby in your uterus. Be afraid, be very afraid!

    Okay, just kidding. He looks to be a handsome little fella. Peace and blessings to him and you and the no doubt proud papa. Enjoy it, all of it. They grow up so fast...

  23. Being me, I could hardly wait to get from the car to the house to see this post. Yippee! A boy! That's nice! I knew it! Smitten it is and will always be. There is nothing like the way a little boy loves his mother, really, nothing. I'm so glad for you three.

  24. You collect good mother points for not showing exposed boy parts. Boys are great; I also have two. The magic of them, as you know, is that they never fully grow up.

  25. Yea!! It's a boy!! I know it is so awesome to find out!! Congratulations again! Sonograms are so fun - they're like a window in your belly button! I knew exactly what my daughter was going to look like from the sonogram - when she came out, she looked just like the pic! So excited for y'all!!

  26. Congratulations!! Can you tell if he'll have a unibrow from an ultrasound?

  27. Dude look at his nose!! So cute!

  28. Boys are the best.... and mother and son bonds are stronger than anything.

    Post those pics, and share your love! You'll be smitten with him for the rest of your life. My dude is 15 months, and I still sneak in every night just to watch him sleep.

    I'm truly happy for you.

  29. I hated almost everything about pregnancy except the small glimpses I'd get of my baby at our sonogram appointments. It's weird, she actually resembles her 20 week ultrasound, which we still have taped to the fridge, quite a bit (not saying that your son doesn't have arms, it's just funny how pronounced their facial features are, even at this point). Congratulations!

    Baby boys are awesome - they really love their mommies right from the start...Best new mommy of baby boy tip - make sure you point the peeper down when you put a new diaper on. Otherwise, baby boys tend to pee up & out of the diaper. I was a nanny for years and never witnessed this until I had a brand-spanking new baby boy. Enjoy! You're going to love it!

    good advice, heather. Yes, definitely point it down. i ended up doing several extra loads of laundry (his clothes and mine) until i figured this out.
