Ultrasound Results

So…we had the first ultrasound today, and it looks like we’re having another little boy. The midwife will go over the results with us when we see her next, but from what the ultrasound technician said it sounds like Luke David (“Davy”) Phillips is shaping up just as he ought, measuring within a couple days of his due date on all the charts. We got some pictures—Sam will scan them tomorrow and I’ll add them to the blog.

I did want (and still want) a little girl whose hair I could put in pigtails, and who would have tea-parties with me, but little boys are wonderfully sweet and I’ll be delighted to have a pair of them. “It’s good for a boy to have a brother,” my friend Matt told me, “and then when you have a girl she’ll have two older brothers to look out for her.” Which is a nice thought.

Robin was in the room for the ultrasound, and seemed pretty interested in the first glimpses of his baby brother, even if he did keep saying “Fwee!” which is his word for fishie. I guess a fetus is something like a fish at this stage, suspended in amniotic fluid and all that. I just hope he’s not disappointed when Davy doesn’t come out a little merman.

Here is a bonus picture of Robin:

    Our little gang of boys will be thrilled to have a new member! Can’t wait to meet little Davy. Love to all.

  • Wendy Says:

    Congratulations! I know it can be a little disappointing if you’re hoping for one gender and get another, but — and I’m sure you’re well aware of this — when that little buddy comes out he will be *just right* for your family!

    It’s okay–I love little boys. They’re funny and sweet and they love their mommies so much.

  • Wendy Says:

    Isn’t *that* the truth! I’ve also heard that boys are harder when they’re little, but easier when they’re teenagers. A gross generalization, of course, but I’m hoping it’s true.

  • shannon Says:

    I’ve heard that too! And I choose to believe it 🙂

  • Madeline Says:

    Congratulations! It’s great to have two kids of the same sex–while people vary, of course, two boys are more likely to have similar interests and like the same toys. (You’ve already discovered the strong role of what seems to be nature in little boys’ love of trains…) Robin will have so much fun playing with Davy! And it’s awesome to be able to use all the same clothes twice…

  • Other Robin's Mom Says:

    Congratulations! And, I agree, the same clothes thing is awesome … There is something super endearing about dressing the little one in his older brothers clothes.

  • Mo Says:

    Congratulations on Davy! What fun. What a house full of mischief you will have.

    The picture of Robin is wonderful, too!

  • Jessie Says:

    You could have tea parties with the boys? We used to put barrettes in my brother’s hair when he was little–he was really cute.

  • shannon Says:

    I thought of that too, actually! I will if they’ll let me.

    But I already asked Sam if I could put Davy’s hair in pigtails and he’s opposed.
