It’s a Boy
That’s right—we just had the ultrasound this morning, and the little Nerdling is unequivocably male. The ultrasound four weeks ago showed a little blobby thing with nubbins for arms and legs, but this time we could see individual fingers and toes (ten of each, I presume—I didn’t stop to count), including all the individual finger and toe bones. It was sort of freaky and cool and indescribably cute.
Now we just need to start working on our list of potential names. We’ve already got a few names in mind, but now we can start thinking about them a little more seriously. I don’t think he’d appreciate being saddled with the name Nerdling for the rest of his life, and I don’t think Ruth would approve, anyway.
