December 26th, a poopy day for a birthday

And yes, the above may be true, but just this last Tuesday night I had my first ultrasound. And I could enjoy it now that I can finally keep food down and everything basic that I used to take for granted.

Now I wasn't planning on finding out the sex of the baby, but gosh darnit, wouldn't that opportunity present itself making it all too tempting. But the truth of the matter is I was afraid I would find out we were having a boy again and then all hope would be lost of having a girl. Only before all of that happened, I looked at the ultrasound monitor as soon as we got started, and noticed something. Something that looked like two white circles. Something I recognized immediately before the ultrasound tech. said, "Guess what?!" John got nervous thinking that meant there was a problem while Jack was just trying to figure out what in hell he was looking at. "There's two."

I could go on about how John shit enough bricks to make a chimney, but I had my secret suspiscions all along the way.

We're having twins. A boy and a girl. And I think Jack was trying to tell us that the whole time. Everytime we asked if he wanted a baby brother or sister he would always say, " I want a brother and a sister!"

I get what I always wanted which was three kids...and I finally get a little girl just for me.

So in closing, I would like to say Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy New Year, Happy Kwanza, and Happy Festivus for the rest of ya's.
