We are having . . .

A CALIFORNIA BOY!




We had the coolest ultrasound technician.  She drew sunglasses on our little guy for Buddha and Bugga so they could each have a cool picture of their baby brother from the doctor's office.  :D  We are so excited to have another boy!  We would have loved a girl, too, but we know boys.  We have boy clothes, boy toys, and boy everything!  I thought Buddha would be more disappointed that this baby isn't a girl since he's been so set on having a baby girl (he tells me we have too many boys already . . . who am I to disagree?).  But, he seems to be taking it all in stride and he's already named our baby Oskar, a name I've pitched to The Chief a couple of times in semi-jest and that Buddha took the initiative to decisively announce to our ultrasound technician.  Now we're just trying to involve him in the naming so he might come to realize that this child has not, in truth, been permanently christened yet.  Here's to little boys.  We love 'em!

Guess what? Now the baby's name will be Oskar. You have no choice. The same thing happened to my sister-in-law. It was their fourth boy and their oldest son didn't consult mom or dad and just started calling the baby in mommy's tummy Tyler. She didn't love the name, but when he was born, it just stuck.

Jacqui said...

You're lucky. My niece was pushing for her little sister's name to be Ocho...suddenly Oskar's not so bad, is it ;)

Congrats again!

Dang it! haha, I know, I'm supposed to post a YEAH on here, and a CONGRATS, and a HAPPY HAPPY DAY!! Well, I'll keep praying the ultrasound tech was wrong, and he is a she! Oh come on, you know we need a girl in the Ogden clan...don't be mad at me. :) If it really is a boy, can you name him Lars for me? I love that name! Wait, I just saw the date- you knew on January 18th!!!??!?!? And I just found out?! Sigh. :):)
