I guess it pays to post twice in rapid succession... no one noticed what I wrote on the post about the Mogrunt's Henry Fonda Sweater. Of course, if you perused my FLICKR photos, you would have clued in pretty fast.
I seriously have baby-brain. I thought it was just a myth.
So, for those of you who haven't figured it out already:
We're having a BOY.
Turns out my auntie's intuition was wrong.
Since I was a bit of a tom-boy when I was a kid (I wore dresses only under threat of death and I'm still not fond of them), I'm really looking forward to what this entails:
1. Star Wars
2. Climbing trees
3. Playing with bugs
4. Making car noises while driving little cars over each other's arms and legs
5. Riding bikes and learning to do the perfect sliding stop
6. Making fart noises with my armpits.
7. Skipping rocks
10. Puppy Dog Tails
My two cousins who are closest in age to me are boys. I had so much fun playing with them when I was little. We were always finding fun and probably crazy things to do. Flying kites in the corn fields just before electrical storms, playing with pellet guns, catching fish and keeping them for a few hours in our kayak, throwing entire watermelons to each other while unloading my aunt's groceries, literally climbing the walls at their house... ah, those were the days.
My mom took a picture of my older cousin, Andy, and I sitting on the step of our camper. Andy and I were both under 4 years old... and we were both completely filthy, just covered in dirt from playing on the beach. We look like a couple of ragamuffins. That was only just the beginning of our adventures.
I can only hope that this little boy has half as much fun as we did.
