Boys on my left side, Boys on my right side....



Meet Baby Wine Shriner. My doctor told me the baby is "perfect" and I believe her!

We have "95%" ruled out Down's Syndrome, cleft pallet, and any problems with the brain, abdomen, spinal cord, and heart. All this is based on viewing the baby via ultrasound and taking measurements of various parts to ensure they are growing adequately. The baby currently weighs about 1 ounce.

During the ultrasound the baby was moving around a lot so we were able to see everything, and the doctor was excited to get such good visibility. As she said, "There are two arms and legs and we see lots of fingers and toes, but that's the least of your worries."

I didn't ask her what I should be most worried about. Probably because she and I were very fixated on the baby's genitals. About 30 seconds into the process the doctor shrieked, "Do you see what I see?". At this point we got kind of giggly and the mood quickly changed from medical to, well, just a couple of girls cracking jokes.

You see, the baby is more than likely a boy. While the doctor warned "don't paint the walls blue yet", she also seemed pretty confident that a boy is on the way. We were cracking up as she said things like "he is hanging pretty low" and "you can see that thing from all angles". We were giggling like a couple of school girls.

And she started taking pictures of "that thing" too. Here you can see our 1 ounce baby in all his glory (click the picture to enlarge).


So there you have it! We are once again struggling for a boy name.... but I'm excited for another boy. Girls are just a pain in the ass as far as I'm concerned.

Any ideas? Names anyone? Submit a name and if we choose it, I'll pay you $100. Yep, that's it. Now get to it!
