It's a...

GfG's comment on my earlier post made me realize I'd forgotten to post the results of our Saturday ultrasound. Please forgive me. Sometimes I forget there are worlds outside of Facebook.

So, without further ado...

This was the image on my favorite piece of flair that I found to include the announcement on my board on Facebook (yes, I, the last Flair hold-out on the Facebook planet, have given in and become addicted). I was glad to find it when I google image'd "It's a Boy." Appropriately boyish, don't you think?

MA was, of course, hoping for a sister. She teared up originally, but seems okay with it now.

Yes, we have discussed names. No, we have not made a decision yet. Yes, we've re-shelved our girl name for a second time.

When I was calling my parents to let them know, I couldn't help thinking of this commercial. This, of course, is the re-make Geico did of the old 1-800-COLLECT commercial that I actually remember, but it's still funny, all the same.

Now, I just have to figure out how to crochet cool booties like Claire on LOST.

Fortunately, the site where I found this image (which amuses me; it's all about knit/crocheted items spotted on television) includes a link to a similar pattern (fortunately, although the poster is Hispanic and most of the site is in Spanish, the pattern itself is in English; I'm not sure I'm quite up for crocheting in Spanish yet; ETA: I just now looked back at the pattern page, which finally fully loaded and noticed that the author is Portuquese; oops; well, I'm *definitely* not up for crocheting in Portuguese! :-P).

What's a flair? Can you tell I don't Facebook or MySpace??
I don't need any other addictions.

I think Josiah is one of my all time favorite boy names (for people who don't mind names that can be shortened). I also like Ezra. Boaz.

love ya!

Thanks, all!

And, more importantly, I need to answer the pressing question as to what flair is. Remember denim jackets and collectable buttons that were worn on them?

Think of that, in virtual form, only with a virtual bulletin board and a practically infinite selection of virtual buttons with quotes from your favorite movies, phrases to support your favorite causes, pictures of foods from your favorite restaurants, etc. Addicting, I tell ya. Addicting.
