The Baby Poll Results

The results are in. I would say that the results of people we polled were about 97% guessing that we were having a boy, and 3% said girl. It turns out that the masses get what the masses want. We have had our ultrasound that confirmed that we are having a boy coming sometime in March. We had thought that we were going to be surprised this time around, but the suspense was just too much for both of us. Then we were going to find out and had planned on keeping it a secret from everyone else (I know we are weird, what can I say?) After we came back from the doctor people started asking us what we were having. We would say, well I think we are still going to go with the whole surprise thing. Kind of a white lie of sorts. Anyway, it seemed that everyone that asked after we had found out, could tell that we were lying, and according to the poll we took, knew that it was a boy as well. Bekah and I on the other hand were not so confident. We had pretty much convinced ourselves that a sister was coming IGN's way.

When the news hit that it was a boy we really should have had the video camera rolling, yall would have gotten a kick out of it. Complete shock. What are we going to do? We don't know how to do boys! Girls I can handle, but a mini JM? Scary. It seems the job of parenting a girl is to protect. For some reason when I think about raising a son, its like teaching and training and being a role model. Of course you have to do all of those things to your daughter, but its just different. At least it seems different now. Who am I kidding they can't be that different right?

You will love having a boy.

I'm not going to tell you why.

You get to unwrap that one yourself!

I've noticed something. The dad of a boy always thinks the boy will be just like the dad. They hardly ever are.

Booyah. A man child. I was terribly wrong but I'm equally excited.

If you keep with the naming trend (OT boy name for a girl), maybe this one should be called Esther? That'll teach folks to judge a kid by the name. He'll be tough as nails.

No we have the name Caleb for this one. Haven't settled on a middle name yet. Esther is probably not an option though.

I have a great idea...how about Justin?! My birthday is in March...wink wink, nudge nudge...and I think I'm pretty cool sometimes.

If he breathes his first breath on the 13th, it was meant to be!! Eh?!

Michael, Cari , Gabriella, and Caleb said...

yeah for Baby Caleb. :-) Can't wait to meet the little booger. ( and Anthony is my vote for a middle name. Caleb Anthony Nysewander. Cute!)

Justin, If that boy shares your birthday, we will let him share your name as well. Maybe.
