On Kids and Religion...(Spoilers!)

Elise:  Mom, am I Jewish?
Me:  Nope.
Elise:  Well, what am I?
Me:  Hmmm.....I guess, if you want to call us something, you could say we are UU's.
James:  I know what that means.  Ultimate Underpants!
Will:  No.  Unexpected Umbrella!
Elise:  Haha!  Unexpected Underpants!
Me:   UU's means Universal Unitarians.
Elise:  What does that mean?
Me:  We pray for people to be kind to each other?

In other news, it's a.....BOY!  We found out today, kind of unexpectedly, at my (17 week) doctor's appointment.  They had warned me that they would probably make us wait until 19 weeks, but I harassed them to take a peek.  Peen and balls!

We found out fairly early with James, at 16.5 weeks.  Will, I don't remember exactly, but I think it was around 16 weeks as well that we knew he was a dude.  Elise was like 20 weeks by the time they even saw me, for some reason, so it took forever to find out her sex.  This time around, I am shocked.  Not that I really had an inkling either way with our other kids, but the pregnancy with Elise seemed different than the first two, with worse nausea.  And this one has been way more along those lines.  Apparently that's no indicator of sex, though!

We told James tonight when we got home from the appointment, since he was still wide awake.  He was absolutely beaming when I went in to kiss him goodnight.  Will was passed out, still wearing today's clothes--must've been that kind of night.  But I am assuming he will be somewhat pleased, because he has been suggesting boy names.  We haven't told Elise yet, and she has been requesting a girl so she might be disappointed.  But we've talked about it lots of times, that it's pretty much up to God, so hopefully she isn't too mad at us.

Congratulations on the peen & balls! So very exciting! (Not that a little va-jay-jay wouldn't have been equally as exciting...)
