Yesterday, Feb 2, we went to the doctor for our ultrasound and checkup. We had the ultrasound tech talk to our friend, Karend Carl and tell her the sex of the baby without us knowing. She baked a cake, iced it with THICK white icing and decorated it beautifully! Last night the family anxiously ate supper at mama and daddy's house...waiting to cut the cake. We had 2 groups...one dressed in pink if they thought it was a girl...one in blue if they thought it was a boy. When we all finished, Jamie had the honors of cutting the cake...the color of the inside revealed the sex of the baby...blue for boy...pink for girl...There was much excitement, screaming, people on speaker phone and Skype, trembling hands...And he cut.....IT WAS BLUE!!!!! Baby Carpenter #4 is a BOY!! We were/are in shock...thrilled...and cannot imagine this house with any amount of blue! We don't have ANY of that color...our coats, bibs, hats, burp cloths, blankets, clothes...EVERYTHING is PINK...I hope he likes pink!!!! We don't have a name yet...so any suggestions are welcome! Our due date is July 6.
