Baby G is a….

True and wonderful blessing. Josh and I are head-over-heelsin love with our little bundle – I simply can’t image how rapidly our love willgrow once we meet our baby. I can’t wait for that wonderful day in November,when we are finally able to hug and kiss our beautiful child. We will never beable to thank the Lord appropriately for this great gift, bringing with itgreat responsibility and real feelings of inadequacy.

We had our follow up ultrasound last week – and by God’sgrace, we were able to find out the gender of our little one. (On top of that,we had a friendly ultrasound tech, who was excited for us and took the extratime to answer questions and show us little fingers and toes. Our firstultrasound experience was not as pleasant, so we are grateful for this answerto prayer).

Although we wanted to find out the gender, it was veryimportant to us that had the opportunity to find out together, not sitting in asterile hospital room. The ultrasound tech wrote down the gender on a slip ofpaper, which Josh dutifully protected all day from my peeping eyes. After work,we promptly went to Pino Gelato, one of our local favorites, and instantlybegan to overwhelm and thoroughly confuse the café staff.

We explained that we were going to hand him a slip, with ourfirst child’s gender written on it. If the slip said “boy”, we wanted him togive us a sealed pint of Mint Chocolate Chip and Pistachio gelato (they didn’thave any blue flavor options, so we chose green); however, if the slip said“girl,” we wanted him to give us Blood Red Orange and Blueberry Pomegranate.After talking him through the process a few times, he sent us outside while heprepared our special order.

Within a few minutes, he had us on our way with a sealedpint of gender-revealing gelato, 2 small blue spoons, and 2 small pinkspoons. (We did get the slip back fromhim, just to have a little insurance :) ).

When we arrived at home, I couldn’t put down my purse fastenough, get out the ice cream pint, rip off the lid, and discover bright pink Blood Orange and purple Blueberry Pomegranate gelato!
