When we found out the baby is a boy, Olivia cried. Poor thing. Leo announced, "Guess what, Mom?! We're having a baby after Christmas!" The sonogram tech thought that was hilarious!
The only hiccup is that the doctor showed us that I have marginal placenta previa. This clears up on its own in most cases, so they just plan to do a recheck in about eight weeks. If the placenta doesn't move, though, I'll have to have a c-section. I am praying not to for all the obvious reasons, but also because we just have too many stairs in our house for me to deal with that! Ha!
Nicholas and I are thrilled to be having another healthy baby! I am trying not to expect another Leo since I know that each baby is different. Leo is so different from Olivia not just because he is a boy, but because he is the second and he is Leo. I am excited to meet this baby who will be different and fun in lots of ways that I am haven't even imagined yet! And Olivia, I know, will love this sweet boy when he comes! Leo, of course, is excited to name him Dumbo Junior!
