Also after he's fallen asleep on my twice I've also figured out maybe East of Eden it too big of an undertaking for Jeremy. I tried to warn him it's a long epic novel, and not always action packed. I think he finally knows what I mean.
So we originally wanted to start with Shakespeare but couldn't find our Complete Works book, read several chapters of Steinbeck and now we've landed here......
If you haven't read anything by David Sedaris I highly recommend it. He is a very funny, saterical writer who mostly spins true life tales related to his crazy life and wacky family. I read Naked a couple years ago and passed to Jeremy in hope that this is his kind of book...but alas it has been collecting dust on his bookshelf.
So with the mindset that reading is reading we are forging ahead tonight with the first chapter of this book!

While I'm sure you're all anxious to hear about the size and shape of Bam Bam's feet and kidneys, what might be more exciting to know is that we found out the sex this morning during our ultrasound. And.....drumroll....it's a GIRL!!
The ultrasound lady definitely saw a 'hamburger' as opposed to a 'turtle' (as she described it to us) between baby's legs. What a fun job telling people their baby's sex! Everything else on the ultrasound checked out as well- all of the organs are in place and look good, good strong heartbeat and LOTS of movement.
I told the lady that I had a cup of coffee an hour before the appointment and she sarcastically thanked me, because baby was moving around so much it was hard for her to get a picture. Mostly she was playing 'peek a boo' with her hands and making that dramatic pose you see above.
So we are very happy! I've been calling the baby 'she' for several weeks now and look I was right! Sorry to those of you who lost this part of the baby pool...but don't forget to vote for weight, length and due date.
Oh and doc was very happy with my weight- according to his scales I've only gained 1.5 lbs in the last 5 wks (mine says 4 but whatever). So yay on that- especially after my last appointment where I got scolded

Now remember this is just a pool not an online gambling site- money should be exchanged only on your own terms (although I'm not discouraging it :)
I will accept any questions you have about our siblings and personal baby stats- as some people find that helpful I guess.
