Yesterday was a big day. I got the referral to call the radiology lab to schedule the Anatomy Scan. The BIG one. The ultrasound where we can find out just a little bit more about the tiny passenger I carry.
Boy or girl? I honestly have no idea one way or the other. And unlike last time, I don't care.
A second little girl would be so sweet. A built-in best friend (and nemesis) for Laura. The sort of sister relationship I always wanted, and only recently found with my 10-years-younger sister.
A boy would round out our family. One of each. A younger brother to pester (and secretly protect) the older sister. A rough and tumbler to counter the girly girl. My mommy's boy to counter Nate's daddy's girl.
December 22nd. We'll know. December 22nd. It's like my own Advent calendar. Twenty-four days from now, at 8:30 in the morning. The anticipation is wonderful. Just like seeing the Christmas tree on Christmas morning (a mere twenty-seven days from now). Let the countdown begin!
