Baby Xrlq Update

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 6:45 pm

Baby Xrlq is now over 20 weeks old. For those of you who have kids, you know that that means; it’s finally late enough in the pregnancy to see if we have a son or a daughter on the way. Mrs. Xrlq and I were in the doctor’s office today, and now, at long last, we know.

It’s a fetus!!!!!!!!!!

More specifically, it’s a fetus who is well on his way to becoming a baby boy in October. No, I’m not going to post the ultrasound picture that proves it.

    A boy, congratulations! I guess you can call him XYrlq

    Hugo: by all means, fire away.

    Stefan: Not a bad name for the boy, but I’m not sure I like what it implies about me.

    Yay! Although I must admit, I’d be equally excited if it were a girl. (I tried to edit that slash out three times.)

    Congratulation! I don’t have independent knowledge of the conventional wisdom; I’ve heard boys are easier than girls. Remember to through a towel or wash cloth over the “goods” when changing – the sudden freedom leads often lead to more “freedom”…

    Congratulations to both Mr. and Mrs. Xrlq!

    Being that I can’t count, when does that make D-Day (as in “delivery”)?

  13. cthulhu Says:

    PS — if D-Day is *late* October, remember your absentee ballots.

  14. Xrlq Says:

    Mid-October is the ETA. I’m registered as a permanent absentee.
