It's a...

Well, I suppose by now, the cat's out of the bag. We know what gender Haner baby #4 is.

But, let me say this before I share the gender, I was surprised by my reaction. Armed with the conviction that it really didn't mattter what it was, no prior premonitions or preferences, I was startled by the tears that came on the way home from the blessed ultrasound that not only revealed the gender, but the apparent good health of this baby. My eggs are getting old after all, so it was nice to see all four limbs, ten fingers and ten toes, and a cute little face and intact spine.

Perhaps I was just tired from the night of no sleep. Bad dreams for Kya last night. I don't mind being awake to cuddle my girl through her fear, but it does make for a rough next morning.

Perhaps I had to mourn the loss of that other gendered child...the fact that I will never again have another of the opposite gender...

I don't know what it was, but I was really really sad.


I started thinking...


...all the bows and dresses and skirts and tutus I get to make!

Oh, yay! Kya will have a sister. I am so happy for you. It would have been awesome if it were a boy too, of course. But you have to know that I love that she will be close enough in age to be friends with Livvie. I am so glad that you decided to tell, I have been wondering all day!

Great subject. I have been playing around with the idea of the comment structure recently.
I think now Internet user are increasing day by day so company are preferring online marketing now.
I think that Marketing Online is still the best choice, cause we have high ROI´s with less investments, especially with SEO.
