Audrey's Thoughts On Pregnancy

Audrey first found out about the pregnancy during our first ultrasound at 7 weeks.  When she saw the beating heartbeat and finally put two and two together, she erupted in complete elation that she would have another little brother or sister.  "I'm going to tell ALL my friends!", she exclaimed.   For the rest of the day, she asked me every 5 minutes if I was feeling okay and if I had any ouchies.  And for the next few weeks, she kept the ultrasound picture in her Tinkerbell purse.


I guess she was wondering how the baby got inside Mommy's belly, because one day she asked with a stern look of consternation, "Mommy, did you EAT the baby?"


One day in the car, she had an epiphany.

Auj:  Mommy, you are like MARY!

Me:  Why, Auj?

Auj:  Because you are having a BABY!  (duh, Ma.)


It's been fun thinking of baby names with her.  Here are some interesting ones she's contributed.

Girls' names:  Gabriella (High School Musical), Audrey

Boys' names:  Jesus, John the Baptist, Lightning McQueen


She had been really hoping for a baby sister, so naturally, she was disappointed when we found out she was going to have another brother.  But after we reminded her of all her girl friends who have 2 brothers, she was encouraged.  At the end of the day, she said, "I love boys today."
