Brotherly Love

The weather has been beautiful today and I got a new camera lens in the mail, so it was a perfect combination to go out and take some pictures of my two little ballplayers. I'm thinking that another little guy to play with these two won't be so bad.

I Think I See A Trend

I have a lot of friends with a lot of kids.

Most of them have had a baby within the past year or so.

So, now I will list them and see if you see the trend I'm talking about.

Kristen: Girl, girl, girl

Becca: Boy, boy, boy

Jami: Boy, boy, boy

Rachael: Girl, girl, girl

Tiffany: Boy, boy, boy

Kelli S: Boy, boy, boy

Cheryl: Boy, boy, boy, girl, girl

I come from quite a gigantic family. So does Kyle. Here's another manifestation of "the trend."

Susan (my mother): Girl, girl, girl, girl, boy, boy

Ann (Kyle's mother): Boy, boy, boy, boy, boy

Helen (Kyle's grandmother): Girl, girl, girl, girl, girl, boy, girl

Sharee (Kyle's aunt): Girl, girl, girl, boy

Kellie (Kyle's cousin): Boy, boy, boy

Bertha (my great-grandmother): Girl, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl. girl, girl, boy

Leah (my sister): Boy, boy, boy

Sister (my aunt): Boy, boy, boy

Nola (my aunt): Girl, girl, girl, boy

Thelma (my aunt): Boy, boy, boy, boy, girl

Lana (my cousin): Girl, girl, girl

Rachel (my cousin): Boy, boy, boy

Becky (my sister-in-law's mother): Girl, girl, girl, boy

Julie (my cousin's wife): Boy, boy, boy, girl, girl

I have a great doctor. I was discussing this trend with her yesterday as I was having my ultrasound.

Dr. D'Andrea: Girl, girl, girl

Now, I know this is not a scientifically proven theory, but I am definitely seeing a trend here amongst the people I know.

If you haven't quite picked up on the trend yet, for those who already had two babies of the same sex, the third was the same sex. I know that eventually many of them went on to have a baby of the other sex, but IF the first two were the SAME, then the THIRD was also the SAME.

So without further ado..............meet baby Dart #3.



Yes, it is a boy. No, I am not surprised. No, I am not disappointed. Yes, I a very happy. Yes, I think I'm a good boy mom.

So there.

Amendment

I totally failed to think about my mom's side of the family. Here's their stats:


Faye (my grandma): Girl, girl, girl

Aunt Gladys: girl, girl, girl

Aunt Doris: girl, girl, girl

Great-grandmother Ada: girl, girl, girl

Only more proof that my theory is, in fact, correct!

Amendment#2

James' grandma: girl, girl, girl, girl, girl

Jami J.: girl, girl, girl

Tiffany Z: boy, boy, boy, boy

Karen W.: girl, girl, girl

It's craziness!

New Pictures of the Boys

The boys love running around in their underwear, so I decided to make it a photo opportunity. They still have bed head and sleepy eyes, but I love these. Enjoy. Aly

Color: A very specific shade of sea foam green. Look in the Pottery Barn catalog and you'll see it.
