And now, veee daunce ... (because, as it turns out, we are not one hit wonders after all)

Remember ... I don't know. ... say back in August, when I told you all about the heartbreaking experience of discovering Ittybit may, in fact, be an only child?

Yeah ...

... well ...

Nevermind.**



According to Annabel, her "sister is coming."

"She's very, very small (picture preschooler thumb and forefinger pressed tightly together) and we're going to name her 'Lola' or 'China.'"

Get that? She is NOT having a boy!

It's too early yet for an official word on whether her girl will actually BE a girl, however I pitty a boy named Lola.

There is uncertain proof, however, that Thing Two has already benefited from its big sister's love, albeit inadvertantly, via the binky Ittybit gave to Santa on Christmas.

Study the ultra sound printout carefully if you will ...

See that? In it's little mouth? No? Try tilting your head to the left and squint. See it now? Do you know what that is? I'm telling you this kid's entering the world with its own pacifier. My guess is Thing Two has overheard all the commotion around these parts concerning "binkectomies" and some oversized elf taking binkies and replacing them with something dumb like lip gloss and decided to take matters into its own hands. I imagine it astutely determined that a baby has very little use for Chapstick.

**I actually went through a three-pack of pee sticks just to be sure, but I couldn't bear to post the photos of them all. Two should have sufficed but ya know, what does one do with the third, unused stick? Perhaps it would have made a good watering monitor for houseplants. We'll never know.

Love it. LOVE. Charlie was a thumsucker in utero as well. And little kids have an uncanny way of knowing what's up...I'm with ittybit on it being a girl!!

Can I rub up against you or something? We have had no luck yet. (I thought it would easier after one, right?)
Congrats to you all! It is very happy and exciting news!

ECR said...

Congratulations! That's a great ultrasound pic, by the way. How do you ALWAYS manage to get the good shots? ;)

lildb said...

oh, oh!!!

you *know* I'm so super-happy for you. :)

amelia said...

so exciting! please o please name her lola. (i do think it's a girl).

Kcoz said...

CONGRATULATIONS !! Now that Annabel has the both of you broken-in, this one should be a piece-of-cake. I agree a boy named Lola is as bad as a boy named Sue.

Now that the holidays are over… have you given much thought about changing the dog sniffing the baby’s butt picture? I know you Mom’s out there think it is the cutest thing since that famous sun tan picture of the sixties, but think of it this way. We guys who appreciate your photography and writing skills, can be embarrassed by things like that, especially having it load on to our computers. I can’t tell you what to do, nor should I, I’m just giving you another perspective

Gail said...

Whee! Let the fun begin!

Oh, and Siobhan, we know that's not an ultrasound, you've got a babycam in there, right? With a Speedlite flash?

wordgirl said...

OH. MY. GOD! HOLY COW! I'm thrilled for you guys! And of course I see the little thumbsucker...I mean...OF COURSE that's what she's/he's doing! I wish I had something like that to report but...as we know...my factory produced three sons and shut down some time ago.

But I'm jumping up and down for you!

Melissa R. Garrett said...

Wow!

Kaela said...

Congratulations! I read your blog all the time and I knew even back in August that "it" would happen. I kept coming back daily for this post and finally.. here it is!

Andrea said...

Oh awesome! Congratulations!

Please post often about your progress, so I can smile and know that patience pays off. Hopefully my own patience will pay off after my surgery next week, and we can embark on our own Thing Two with a doctor's stamp of approval shortly thereafter.

I just wanted to thank you all, and especially those who are "delurking," for your good thoughts and continued support.

The community I've found on the Internets has been really as warm as any tight-knit neighborhood could be.

So thank you.
