How do you know?

Without the internet in our apartment, my blogging has certainly become rarer. But we are kind of enjoying our sojourn back to medieval times of no internet.

Baby Shirley is healthy and well, as far as we know. Baby reminds won’t let us forget about him/her and will cause quite the uproar sometimes. But I am doing well, and we feel extremely blessed.

Baby is 18 weeks and has an estimated arrival date of April 20th. I suspect baby is so excited to meet Daddy that he/she will come early. Maybe the 19th.

Baby might feel bad, because sometimes we call Baby “it”. It seems to take a lot of effort to say he/she all the time. On Monday we will no longer refer to Baby as “it,” however. That’s right! Monday we find out if little Baby Shirley is a boy or girl. But first, we want to know what you think. Here are some stats:

Jeffree’s oldest sibling is a girl.

My six oldest siblings are boys.

Of my siblings who have children, 5/6 had boys first. Jeffree’s siblings’ firsts are a 3:4 ratio, girls to boys.

My classes voted 66 boy and 44 girl, but most people I’ve asked say girl.

As far as where I'm carrying, etc, I really have no idea. I can't feel the baby yet, and I haven't noticed anything weird about my body. So, your guess is as good as mine :)

So, dear blog friends, what will it be?
