A Boy!


Today we went to the hospital to do some tests and the laboratory happened to be directly across from the ultrasound area. So I asked when they are able to identify the gender of a baby. The man was clueless and said he would have to ask. I returned later and he said they could tell at five months, then the lady next to him said six or seven months. Well if they thought they could, and it was only about $10, we went for it. After about an hour and a half wait, we went in and enjoyed watching our restless little fellow. He was quite active and when it got to the all important gender identification time, the doctor said what he saw seemed to indicate a boy. 70-80% sure. While he was looking around, my wife said to him, can you tell if he has all of his fingers and toes? Almost immediately after she said that, the little fellow held his hand up for the camera and we could count all of the fingers. It was as if God told him, "Hey! Hold up your hand so they can see!" Really a special moment.

Thats Grreat! I don't remember the bib colors but if they are for the wrong gender we can do something different!
Bless you, your wife and the little Devonshire.
Do you have a name picked out? One sis. teased me and told me Gail was a nice name because her name is Gail. I know Gale can be a mans name also but that didn't quite stike us as one to choose :) From time to time I have teased that sis who lives in California how my son didn't turn out to be a girl:)
Bless you folks!

hey Rev. i think Jhun-jhun, or Boy, Toto, Dodong, Indoy, Tok, are good names, i would suggest "Bimbo" but that name is already taken, that happens to be my cousin's name, heheh.

My mother has been jokingly calling the baby Fahrquar, I told her how prescient of her, that is just the name we had picked!

I am so excited for you guys. I know Sis D. has wanted a baby for some time. Congrats. I had a feeling you were going to be having a boy.

Having previously met a few members of the male gender in the PI named "Boy", that was MY first choice -- so in the mouth of two or ore...LOL...but please, please not Fahrquar...LOL
