A new way to determine gender?



When I brought the ultrasound picture home from my doctor's visit and showed it to the boys, our 4 1/2-year-old responded with an excited "We're having another BABY!" Then he pointed at it and said, "I know what THAT is (pointing at the picture), it's a BOY!!!" Now, the ultrasound was taken just shy of 12 weeks...so the gender of the baby wasn't evident. Curious, I asked, "how can you tell it's a boy?" He outlined the head with his finger and said, "because it's got a round head." My husband stumped him with the question, "well, what shape would a girl's head be?"

Who knows, maybe he's onto something. I wouldn't know. I don't have experience with baby girl ultrasounds (at least not that I'm aware of).

What a clever blog! You will be so thrilled to have recorded these precious stories when you are my age and your little boys are grown with families of their own. What joy! Blessings ~ Patricia

That's sooooo cute! I love what kids come up with! Maybe I should show our ultrasounds to our 4 year old daughter and see what wisdom she has.

Patricia - thanks for stopping by. You're right about me being thrilled...I ALREADY am. I am an avid scrapbooker - and having the blog has been SO helpful remembering the funny things the kids say (and getting them written down in the scrapbooks), especially since I am usually 6 months to a year behind in my scrapping.

And Christine, I think you SHOULD show it to her - I'd love to hear what she says about the latest one :)
