It has been confirmed that Jamie and I are having a baby boy, to be named Michael Ritch. I was kind of hoping for a girl . . . but I'm still super excited about a boy! We can finally start shopping for nursery items now! My mom is happy that she can now buy him Christmas presents even though he won't even be born yet!
I feel like I'm really behind in everything. We haven't started on the nursery yet, though we have finally picked a theme - The Justice League (DC Comics). My husband is a super comic book nerd and wanted to go with some sort of comic book theme. From what he tells me, some of the members of the Justice League include: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.
Right now it is an enormous relief for me to know whether I'm having a boy or girl. It feels like a bond I'm developing with my baby now that I can refer to "it" as a "him." Jamie's grandfather is glad that there is another male to carry on the family name. I told Jamie, "We get to try for a girl next time!" He is putting the limit at three kids, though. I just hope we can make it through the first!
