It's official! We've got a girl bun in the oven! We are thrilled! We found out last week at our second-chance ultrasound when girlfriend dropped trou and showed us what she got. After that, she basically she went out of her way to moon us. Of course. The apple does not fall far, friends.

Anyway, Gavin had the ultrasound technician write the Burglet's saix on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope for us to open at dinner that night. This plan of his drove me crazy and we had words about it more than once, because of course I wanted to find out immediately, but I had to admit that at the end of the day, it was kind of neat doing it that way.

The ultrasound technician not only wrote out the good news for us, but she even stuck a little pic in there of the Burby's "area" so we could see for ourselves. Fascinating! I would post it here but honestly it's been in my purse so Gavin hasn't had a chance to scan it in. I also must admit that I feel a little weird about posting her area on the internet. I don't know why - it's not like I haven't been showing it to everyone I know.

The very best news, though, was that the Burgita got a clean bill of health from the doctor and so apparently we are all set to spawn in November. Of course I have done nothing, like purchasing baby items or putting together the baby's room. It's like this has just been an amusing diversion up till now and I just realized last week that this was actually happening.

In other news, Gavin is learning a lot about cervixes and mucus plugs and contractions. He is quite the star pupil in our childbirth classes, and I am very proud. We saw some videos (gag) and pictures that shook him up pretty bad, but he's still with us so far.

So that's our news, folks! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
