TWELVE!


How in the world does time fly by so fast?  I swear it was yesterday when I had an ultra sound that blew my socks off.  The SM had come to the four previous ultra sounds with me.  Boy.  Boy.  Boy.  Oh BOY!  I was thrilled with having boys.  I loved having little boys but this time........ I kinda sorta wanted to try a different flavor.  After four boys did we think it was possible to change the water?

I can't remember why but for some reason The SM couldn't come to this ultra sound appointment.  Don't worry schweetie!  I'll get it all on video.  It's not like you can tell what those photos are anyway.  Well, you can now a days but back in the 'olden' days........  when it was one black and white smear of "I'll take your word for it".  I have scrap books full of these really cool black and white photos of my supposed soon to be baby.  For all I can tell, they may just be photos of the moon and those craters, they are saying are my babies heart and lungs!

Tangent.  Oops.  Anyways.........  I went to my ultra sound and WHAT???  Could you repeat what you just said?  A WHAT???  Impossible!  Are you sure?  Double check.  Make sure those photos aren't from the last lady that was in here where you pulled up the south side of the moon and told her she was having a girl.  Uh huh.  Not buying it.  This machine only knows how to make boys apparently.

Well, it would appear that there was a glitch in the machine, don't worry, it's fixed....... it went back to making boys but for one blip of a moment there was a crossed circuit or something and would you believe that ultra sound tech made a lucky guess when he showed me crater of the moon number five!


And boy howdy are we ever glad because this little Henny Penny has been nothing but a delight and a largish bit of sunshine and peppermint candy in our household.  Not to mention her mum doesn't mind having another team member on her duly out numbered lack of testosterone team.

Henny Penny is artistic, sweet, smart, compassionate, girly with enough tom boy to make her right up there with Mary Poppins.  Practically perfect in every way.

Did I mention it was her birthday?  Sigh............ 12.............  Happy Birthday Henny Penny!!!

    1. Yes, officially a tween! Thought you'd like that shirt. :D She is very excited to be 12. It's a big number. She feels all important and growed up. She is learning all growed up means cuts while shaving legs. :)

  8. HOW DID I MISS THIS? (Oh, just checked the date and realized that it was because I was away.) Happy, happy (belated) birthday, Henny Penny!

    Such a beautiful young woman. And I love that shirt!

    As usual, I chuckled my way through your post. Coming from a long line of girls, when my first son was born, I had to ask, "Are you SURE it's a boy?" I mean maybe the training in med school is a little thin when it comes to determining gender, right?

    1. You know how those machines are! They could be anything and those techs tell us it is the heart, lungs, gender, etc. I think they're all gamblers and the fact that they were correct on all of The Native's proves that they are really good guessers. :D
