Before Matt and I drove to the doctor on Friday morning, while we were taking off electrical plates and taping off the baseboards, Matt asked, "So you really want to paint the room green if it's a girl?" [we were having a party the next day and Matt was going to paint the nursery Friday night to be ready for the party] I responded, "well, yeah. What were you thinking about?" Of course, I was shocked that he was bringing this up now since we had decided on green for a girl a while back. He said he wanted it to be something more girlie, like pink or purple... not lime green. After I told him, again, what I planed for the girl's nursery, he agreed, or rather, gave up.
We were called back pretty fast and got situated on the table. The technician informed us that she was going to use this visit also to take some measurements and check for proper growth. As she moved from the head downwards, I saw the two legs and asked, "Is that what I think it is?" she confirmed, "yep, those are the testicles and a little penis. You're having a boy!"
One of Matt's first reactions was, "At least now we don't have to argue any more over a green nursery!" Though he, we, are still very excited about our baby boy.
Matt did come home from work Friday night and painted the nursery.... both coats, one night. He's a beast!He's such a proud dad-to-be painting his son's room.Love the blue! Since we now know what we're having, we promptly went out to Babies R Us and Target to register for future showers. What a whirlwind weekend!
