it's a girl! Well, so far. Came home from work to find the mom-to-be and her father watching the baby on video (technology today...it's mind boggling). Baby is developing nicely at 16 weeks, has a healthy heart beat, and now, they can color in the umbilical cord so you can see the blood actually pumping. Amazing. Mom-to-be said at first she thought it was a girl, but changed her mind to a boy a few weeks ago...ironically, when she first told us (with a poem, how sweet is that?) my first inclination was toward a girl, but I changed my mind a couple of weeks ago too. Weird. Well, I've had friends who were told it was a boy, and delivered a baby girl...so, I'll wait until the next ultra sound. Frankly, I know the techs are highly trained to spot these things, but I couldn't tell one way or the other on that screen. At any rate, she's an active one! Kicking and everything. Feisty it would seem, just like her mother.
