"In those silent, happy seconds that surround the sound of this event, a parent smile is made in moments..."
Not to brag, but really? I totally knew it!
After a few prods with the ultrasound wand, the baby finally moved into a position that allowed us to see that...
A boy!!! To be named Peter Joseph Latini, Jr! And if anyone has a good suggestion for a nickname that will easily distinguish the younger Peter from his father, let me know! Because this child is NOT- repeat, NOT!- to be called Junior or, worse, Little Peter!
Because we all know what connotation "Little Peter" has.
That aside, everything continues to go well with this pregnancy! All of my labwork came back with great results, my uterus is mesuring just the right size, and everything in the ultrasound looked fantastic, although we will get the full results later! We found out the baby weighs 1 lb, 1oz already, which puts him in the 90th percentile for weight at his gestational age!! YIKES!!! I am seeing an amazing future for this boy, but not such a geat future for, well...
For my vagina!
But, fear for my girl bits aside, finding out that I am carrying a boy, a SON! Oh, that was the best moment of my whole life! Although I would have been happy with either sex- truly!- I just felt from the start that this baby was a boy, and it makes my heart feel so full to know that my instincts were right! This baby and I, we know each other! And I can't wait to introduce him to the people he doesn't know yet- all of his cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents! All of our fabulous friends and all of the playmates that are waiting for him!
I can't wait to tell him all about his mama's Mom-Mom, and his Uncle Greg, and tell him how they are his own guardian angels and how much they love him, all the way from Heaven!
I can't wait for Peter Joseph Jr to be here!
