I Was Told it Isn't Possible to Put Him Back

We will be welcoming the Pierce Obadiah Edgar into the world in July. Yes, it's a boy. He was very stubborn during the ultrasound and gave the technician a difficult time documenting all the body parts she needed to scan for the anatomy scan EXCEPT when she was looking at his private parts area. He was very proud of his man parts (much like Silas was) and made it very clear to her what he was.

Everything looks good as far as we can tell. Heartbeat strong and steady; 143 beats per minute. No abnormalities or anything. When I did my quad test the dr. said average woman has a 1 in 1,000 chance of having a baby with down syndrome but somehow I manage to have a 1 in 10,000 chance. So things are really great.

Now we wait. We have most everything we need except for little little baby boy clothes and little baby diapers. So that is nice. If we had not had another so soon we may have gotten rid of more than what we have so it is nice that we will not need a whole lot. Just the basics really.

Two boys. Oy. Heh we are excited even if it is not what we originally hoped for. In reality the most important thing is that he is healthy!

I'll post the pictures once I gain access to a scanner. :-}


  1. I am just happy that he and his Mommy are healthy. Apparently I had the wrong feeling this time. I'll just take your dreams as the real deal. :) Pierce Obadiah will be just as precious as Si Man. Just remember...he'll be more ornery...mainly because he'll have the older sibling to learn from, look up to, pick on and compete with. :)
    And Silas will throw more tantrums when he sees you and Daddy Jordan giving attention to baby Pierce. But you'll love every single moment of it!

    I can't wait to help you welcome baby Pierce into the world. Let me know when you know when things are going down. :D

  2. Hurray for two boys!!! They are going to have sooooo much fun together.
