Valerie had a very creative idea for telling Sydney she had a little brother, and, truth be told, she was a little worried Sydney would be disappointed that it wasn't a little sister. Last week Sydney came up to Valerie and said, "Mommy, what we need to do is go buy a pair of baby shoes, boy shoes and girl shoes and then we will know if it is a boy baby or a girl baby." So I don't follow the logic, but it made sense to her. So after we left the doctor's office we stopped by Target, Valerie wrapped up the purchase in a box and we gave it to Sydney.
So yeah we are not going to name the little guy Woody. Sydney was also really excited about a particular ultrasound picture:
The caption is what excited Sydney, "Wow, it's like he can talk big people! How did he do that?" It took a little bit to explain about digital editing of photos.
Anyhow here are a couple of other photos Valerie took to commemorate the occasion.
It has been an exciting month so far, and now I am off to study for what will hopefully be my last final ever!
