Today was a special day for a number of reasons. It's the 2nd day of our Baha'i celebration called Ayyam-i-Ha. Brian didn't have to work, we found a Wahoo's Fish Tacos in Honolulu about an hour away and we had our ultrasound appointment to find out the gender of the baby. The rest of the day was well needed family time. But that's boring stuff, right? Let's get to the nitty gritty- WHAT'S THE GENDER OF THE BABY?
Chances are, you've already scrolled down to see the pictures so you already know it's A BOY. And it's laughable because everyone, including Coral and Sky thought it was a girl. I really believed in the psychic abilities that children sometime endow in these circumstances, but now that I think about it, Coral's been saying that there's two babies, a boy and a girl.
Anyways, since this will be our 3rd homebirth and we see a midwife, not a traditional OBGYN, we went to one of those 3D ultrasound places to have the ultrasound. Brian is a radiologist, so basically, it's his job to read ultrasounds and CTs and XRays and all. And literally the very place and instant that the technician placed the ultrasound probe he saw it, he saw the boy parts and he announced, "It's a boy." HA. Yeah we laughed. But it could have been the umbilical cord, so the technician moved around to get a better view. And undeniably, that sweet little babe was going to carry on the Fortuna name.
It's not a secret that I wanted a girl. I've dreamed of having my little ginger girl, wearing matching outfits and braiding her hair. But no matter what, I am sublimely happy because this is a healthy baby boy and he seemed so very sweet and laid back. In pure Hawaiian style, he had his legs crossed, his hands at his face, all kicked back and relaxed and he even gave us a little wave saying "whatup family."And you should know, that compared to my other two ultrasounds with Coral and Sky, those rowdy boys were playing dance dance revolution in there. So seeing this little nugget all chill and relax, really soothed my worry of more manic energy coming my way, well at least for the time being.
Even though Coral's been calling the baby a girl, as soon as he found out it was a boy, he said, "It will be a boy, just like me and I'l give him my Pow(d)er Rangers!"Also, when I asked him what his name should be, he said Sunny or Sonny... I don't know, the kid can't spell yet.
Andplusalso, when I got home, I set up the tripod and attempted to take these pics...

So that's it folks. The babe is a boy. Now I can delete all the shopping carts I had full of cute girls clothes and focus on just buying super radical cloth diaper covers. Yep, I am cloth diapering this time around and I am sure I will need some guidance with that, so all you CD connoisseurs out there, I'll need you, badly.
Thank you so much for following along!
