Its a . . . . . .


BOY!!!

We are so excited!! Its funny, I thought I really wanted a girl, but when he said boy, this sense of relief washed over me. He looks like he is growing great. All things appear to be as they should. We think he will be a big one, like boy #2, since he is measuring a little big for his age.

I am also doing well. Being over 40, we are concerned that I might have more problems than usual, and considering my history (pregnancy induced hypertension with #1 and borderline gestational diabetes with #2) we would not have been surprised with some issues. But we had a great check up - blood pressure fine, blood sugar great, weight gain minimal; all in all good news.

We are a little over the half way point, so I guess now is the time to get some of my projects completed. I'll post about things as we get them done.

Lori, I am so excited for you guys. You know, if Redd and I were to have more kids, I'm almost 100% positive they'd be boys as well. Redd's dad was one of 7 boys. Redd's mom, my mom & dad were all only children, so it was pretty hard to tell genetics from that.

This is just one more boy to treat a woman right since you raise your boys to be gentlemen. We're always hearing how "there aren't any good men out there", but we know that our boys coming up are good men!

Congrats again!

How funny that your Mom and Dad Redd's Mom were all only children. That was so unusual with that generation. Bryan's dad is one of three boys and so is my dad. Too funny. And my mom and Bryan's mom both had large families (7 & 6).

I sure hope my boys grow up to treat women well and behave like gentlemen. I know our first will, but sometimes I wonder about our second (though he has improved greatly over the last year or so). We have been praying for his future wife for many years now, lol.

Congratulations! I am glad that you and the baby are doing well.

My last pregnancy was in my 40's and despite having complications with earlier pregnancies, I did just fine. I din't mind all the extra medical attention that "older mothers" get. I think that extra reassurance was what I needed to keep my blood pressure normal! :D

Great pictures of the new baby, Lori. I am so excited for you. Don't know if you noticed, but if you look at the bottom picture it looks like the baby is sitting in the palm of a hand. Really cool looking picture.
