baby! Don’t worry, I’ll get to it.
We got up this morning and headed to the clinic to view the innards of my stomach which are almost entirely being occupied by a very wiggly and flexible baby. All the organs look healthy and though it was curled up in the most uncomfortable looking position, the bones and spine are fantastic. The head shot was difficult to get as it was constantly gnawing on its hands. I figure I should eat more because of this. (I’ll take any excuse for more ice cream.)
I had, of course been thinking of whether it was going to be pink or blue. I really didn’t care. I’ve had a boy, and he’s so great another would be fine by me. I hadn’t had a girl so that would be fun and balance would be restored to the Pilver household.
Meet Lucy Christine, my pretty little girl. I love her so much already. I have always wanted to name a girl Lucy so that was easy. Christine is Mr. Pilver’s mother’s name. She passed about 6 years ago. Mr. Pilver and his whole family talk about her with the greatest love and respect and I wish so badly I could have known her better.
So there it is. I already have a big boy, and now a baby girl. I’m feeling very, very lucky.
