The fourth member of the Lang Family Band has revealed herself…
HERSELF! We’re having a GIRL!! I’m so surprised, stunned, gobsmacked
even. I sat in the ultrasound room in total silence. Then I started muttering… are you sure? are
you sure? I really never entertained the possibility of this being a
girl. Through a combination of old wives tales, psuedo science and
voodoo magic I’d become utterly convinced it was a boy. After leaving
the doctor’s office like a zombie I realized what a fool I’ve been.
Really. How on earth would I know. Evidentally I’m not the only one to
do this because the ultrasound gal was all ‘yep, yep, we get that all
the time.’ duh. So wow! After the shock wore off, and then the embarassment, and then some mourning for this boy I’d been waiting for, I’ve become so excited!
One of each. A complete set. We’re so lucky! Now I just need to absorb
it all. I really never imagined myself as the mom of a girl. I was
keeping Tim up all night. He’d doze off and then I’d yell out paper
dolls! …that little pink ironing board from land of nod! …pigtails!
and of course I had to run out yesterday and buy a little girly outfit.
