Hello Tree friends.
I didn't mean to leave you hanging after our big announcement on Tuesday. But, life called and I had to answer. This week was a big week in my job, and I spent a lot of time at work, but now the big events are over and I can relax.
Even though I dont blog from work, if I have a busy week at work I am zapped when I get home and usually I can't formulate a sentence for the blog.
But now we are back to our regularly scheduled program:
Thank you for all of your sweet comments about our Baby Boy Tree. I have to say it: I KNEW IT!!! We are so excited about our sweet little boy that is on the way and we are about 92% sure we have the name picked. I will share it when we get to 100%. Hopefully that will be soon.
I do have to share a funny story.
I know I have talked a lot about being afraid our baby will have a lot of hair. Of course I say most of this in a joking way. I will fall in love with that sweet baby from the moment my eyes land on him, mullet or no mullet. (well I already love him, but you know what I mean) But joking about our baby having a lot of hair has been something that has occured before we were even pregnant.
In fact it started before we were even married.
You see I come from a family of light people, light skin, light hair, light features, which usally results in bald babies.
Then I married this:
Whoa! That's alota hair!
And thus the jokes began about having a baby with a lot of hair.
So I have to tell you, I'm in the ultrasound room, looking at the image of our baby on the screen completely amazed that God put THAT baby in MY stomach. I mean the whole thing is insane if you think about it.
So I'm laying there all relaxed, totally excited that we are having a boy, when the ultrasound tech says:
I turn to the screen, only to hear her say:
"this baby as A LOT of hair"
And then she begins laughing hysterically and says:
"I mean A LOT of hair, like maybe the most I have ever seen on an ultrasound"
I wish you could have heard the amount of laughter coming from Luke at this point, he clearly thought it was the funniest thing he had ever heard in his life.
So she turns and points to Luke and says:
"Yes! Like his hair, its sticking up everywhere just like his daddy's hair"
At this point we were all laughing.
It was so funny and has made a funny story to share with all our friends and family who know my "fear" of having a hairy baby.
So who really knows....maybe Baby Boy Tree will come out with a sweet mullet, or maybe it will all fall our before he comes out.
However, at the rate I'm getting heartburn and indigestion I can only guess I am growing quite a bit of hair in there.
Regardless we will be happy, and it makes for a hilarious story.
And I will be sure and pack Luke's hair wax in our hospital bag. If the baby does get Luke's crazy Indian hair we gotta make sure he knows how to rock it!
