Turnip's True Nature


And it... ahem... HE has all of the necessary parts so far to survive. Two kidneys, a closed spinal cord, a brain that is inside of a closed head, a stomach, a diaphragm that separates top from bottom. I will be sleeping better tonight because of that reassurance.

And I am totally raiding The Best Nephew Ever's closet this weekend when I visit!

Now, back to the library... last final starts in 35 hours. I'll be done in 39 hours. DONE.

By the way, IT'S A BOY!!

15 Readers rock!:

Me! said...

Yay for a boy!!!!! :)

Today, I had lunch with Martha, and I was like, "Um, the last time a friend asked me to lunch on my Wednesday off, it was to announce a pregnancy. Should I be expecting some news from you?"

The look on her face was priceless! :)

Sarah said...

I was really hoping for puppy! I am completely excited for you.

Kate and Andrew said...

A BOY!!!! We are so excited for you. I'm so glad that he has all the necessary parts! Things like kidneys, spinal cord, etc are very good. I definitely remember that ultrasound with those vital parts and it is huge. We are so, so happy for you. A boy!!! This is Kate writing (if you couldn't tell) in case Blogger tries to tell you it's Andrew :) But he is right next to me and excited too!

I hate to be a wet blanket but...

All this talk about a little man's "necessary parts" and no mention of the most critical one?

Does he have a remote control in his little hand?

(by the way aly, are you free for lunch next Wednesday?)
