It's blue, baby!

Sophie has a doll she calls Baby Tom. She has a similar looking girl doll that she first named "Jesus," but that name morphed into Pink Baby Tom.

Frank and I went to our 20 week ultrasound appointment today and the verdict is in: it's a BLUE BABY! We're thrilled to know that we're going to have one of each, and a little overwhelmed, too (I speak for myself, here) to know that we're entering into a whole new realm of parenting. I know what to do with Pink Baby Tom (aka Sophie), but I guess I need to hone my destructive, dirt-eating, scab-picking, football-throwing skills.

Good news for our soon-to-be-here cousin babies, Bennett and Sadie Kate: we've got some girl clothes we won't be recycling in the Webster household! Oh, we're not opposed to little "Stevie Ray" wearing pink, but anything with bows or laces is now up for grabs. And if you see a football on sale, send it our way. :)

Hooray!! I am so excited for you guys. Bennett will be shopping for a football before she is even able to hold her head up. Summer vacations are going to be so much fun. Not that they aren't already.

I would have been excited either way, but it's so fun to finally KNOW! I think our guys are going to have so much fun playing together. xoxox

I have laughed every time I have thought about Sophie leading us to her room to see Pink Baby tonight.

Can we come play some more? I thoroughly delighted in that.

Love you all.

I have a real life baby Tom that you can practice on. I reckon the main difference is an extra dangly bit.
Congratulations--I'm excited to have a partner in crime for those situations that are unique to boys (I don't even want to start thinking of what they may be).
