Baby Verdict (of sorts)

After yet another hectic period at work over the past month followed by Thanksgiving-related activities, I’ve once again been quite remiss in my blogging duties. But I’m now back and think that what I’ll do to catch up is to post about events in the order in which they happened over the past few weeks. The first of these is the highly anticipated verdict on Baby Shapiro 2.0’s boy/girl question.


Well, we finally had our second (and last) ultrasound and wouldn’t you just know it?...The little munchkin-to-be was shy once again! She/he was turned the wrong way and had no desire to readjust his/her position. So it looks like this is going to remain unanswered until Baby 2’s arrival in March. Just one more exciting thing to look forward to on the big day! I suppose the only downside will be having to do all this “boy/girl” typography here at The Shapiro Files in the months to come. Oh well, that little slash symbol never gets used enough anyway!

    That is exciting...even though you won't know the gender for a while!

    We just had a nice visit for Thanksgiving with some of you California folk (Akiva & Sharon) and it was great to catch up on everything.

    This baby has to be named I hope it is a girl :)

  • LOL! : ) Well, it'll be a nice surprise! In the mean time, you could also refer to him/her in a gender-neutral way like "kiddo" or something! : )

  • Hi Steve:

    Well, one thing's for sure! Whether the baby is a boy or a girl, there will be lots of love to go around!!!!

    We are wishing you all the best!

    Please say hi to the whole gang!

  • Brad, you don't think we should go with Sotto Voce instead? :)

    Irina, great suggestion!

    Aunt Linda, thanks for the good wishes!

    Becky, thanks for your comments about the baby graphic. You're actually the first person to comment on the images I use here--I'm glad someone noticed! Ya gotta love image libraries and Photoshop! Hope you're well, and yes, I look forward to the Brunswick stew!
