Regarding the gender of our unborn child, the people made their voices heard when they rallied in support of a girl, but they were wrong. God has spoken, and he has spoken thusly, “Nay, it shall be yet another boy. Get used to it.”

When the sonogram technician told us it was a boy Gretchen asked her if she was absolutely sure. She said, “Yup, there’s a penis.” Later, Sammy told us, “It made me sad when she said penis.” Me too buddy, me too.

In all seriousness, we’re very excited about having another boy. We are a little nervous about the un-babysittable horde we’ll have, but still excited. And the boys are excited about their new little brother, “Handsome Dan Lightning”.
