Alex's legendary vocabulary has become my vernacular; he is responsible for "issat newiss?" (what's that noise?), "ee-pahd" (iPod), "motor troll" (remote control), and "wha hoppeen?" (what happened?). He is stubbornly literal and rigid, as 4-year-olds are wont to be, and funnier and more sensitive than he has any right to be.
He's in for the surprise of his life.
JULIE found out today that the fetal project she's been working on for the past 20 weeks is going to be a girl.
Thankfully Alex has chosen a gender-neutral name for his sibling-to-be: Termie.
I am so thrilled for her, and for her family, and for the opportunity to watch what happens when daddies have daughters.
Mr. JULIE is in big trouble.
You can track the B family's journey, and Alex's exploits, here, at JULIE's blog.
And since you're already procrastinating, stop by LSiS's Internet homespace, here. They're each giving the world a smart, wise-cracking, take-no-prisoners lady and some absolutely undone dads and grandpas.
