I think I counted the days to this date for a long time. Organized (although I am just starting this blog at 7 months down) is probably an understatement for me and so for anyone that really knows me, anything standing in the way of planning would really be an aggravation – and in this case – not knowing if Peanut (the term affectionately coined by JJ) was a boy or girl left everything unchecked on the list and undoable save window shopping (which I had done plenty of).
April 14, 2008 at 8:00 am was the scheduled date. We could have gone a week early but I was in Las Vegas for work (check out the early baby bump as it doesn’t look that way for long). At first the baby was quite obstinate – sitting indian style – not a surprise – considering I have been told that was a favorite position of mine. We almost thought we just weren’t going to find out – but low and behold – the nurse’s intuition held up and the baby was identified as a girl. Ironically, the only name we had come up with so far (thanks to the Miss USA pageant held the previous Friday) was KayLee. And so therefore in my head – the baby was no longer just a bump but had an identity – whether or not this name held up in the running.
