For those without the time or patience to listen to today’s podcast episode to learn our “news,” I suppose I’ll come out and say it:
Becky and I are expecting Baby Loy #3 in July!!! Specifically, on July 8 — the very same date that Loyacita was due back in 2009 (though she was born five days late).
We don’t know the sex yet, but we intend to find out when we can, likely in a month-and-a-half or so. We’ll let y’all know when we know.
For those keeping score, this means we’ll have a 3 1/2-year-old, a 2-year-old, and a newborn. Donations to our college fund can be sent to email@example.com via PayPal. :) No, but seriously: call us crazy, but we wanted to have them this close together. If we’d waited a few months longer, we would have ended up with a big, exaggerated gap between #2 and #3, school-wise: we’d have had a fourth-grader, a third-grader, and a kindergartner. Instead, it’ll be 3rd, 2nd, and K. (And senior, junior & freshman… #PANIC!)
As for whether we hope Baby Loy #3 is a boy or girl, we’re both torn. For my part, notwithstanding Becky’s statement in the podcast that I “want a girl,” I can really see the pros and cons of both. I guess my heart leans toward a girl, my head toward a boy, but both are only very slight leans. I’ll be genuinely delighted with either; I just want a healthy baby. We’ve been so blessed thus far, in terms of health, happiness and cuteness. :)
Anyway, stay tuned for an eventual Baby Pool, discussion of a blog nickname (once we know the gender), etc. Oh — and there’s a new countdown in the left-hand sidebar. :) 170 days and counting!!
