An anatomy lesson...

Conversation with Andrew today (age 3)
  Me:  I'll see you in a little while.  I'm going to the doctor.
  Andrew:  You have a cut, Mommy?  Need a bandaid?
  Me:  nope, I'm okay.  You remember how I have this big tummy and there's a baby in there?
  A:  No Mommy.  Not a baby.  It's just your tummy, remember?  Here, I'll show you.  (Tries to pull up my shirt)
  Me:  (I tried to explain how the baby was in my tummy all the way inside.)
  A:  No, Mommy.  *speaking very softly* That's your bottom in there...


...what?!  That kept me laughing all the way to the doctor's office.  You should have seen his face when I said he and Emily had been in my tummy, too.  He was a mixture of disgust and pity at my ignorance.

Guess who's going to be surprised in 6 weeks when he all of the sudden has a baby brother?  Oh, and for interested parties, the baby looks great, is head down, is estimated at 5 lbs 7 oz, and they moved my edd to Feb 10 instead of the 13th.  Also, my doctor laughed so hard while listening to the heart rate because the little guy wouldn't stop moving.  Also, the ultrasound tech had a mullet and a handlebar mustache.  Welcome to Smalltown USA.

Your due date is getting pretty close; I'd better start clearing my calendar.

We had dinner with Ed & Barb tonight. They said that they really liked your Christmas card with pictures of the kids.

That's your bottom. Classic. Oh man that kid is funny.
