I finally had an ultrasound appointment, and the tech said that Baby looks like a girl!!! She said she couldn't be 100% certain, but more than 90%. I tried to not go in with high hopes. For one thing, it's against Korean law to tell women before about 32 weeks what they are having. I'm no Korean, and this is technically an American hospital, but there have been reports of hardcore ultrasound techs refusing to say, and I'm not keen enough to necessarily identify on my own, especially since it's only ever been a boy so far. There have also been reports of being told wrong at the ultrasound here at this hospital, so I'm still afraid to fully embrace the idea for fear of disappointment at the birth. But I'm getting excited nonetheless! We didn't read the book on how to have a boy or a girl, but I looked up the theory online, and we tweaked things accordingly right around that time - so maybe we finally did it right! Kyler was in preschool during the appointment, thankfully, so I only had Tristan, and he kept busy scribbling on my chart and disrobing his feet.
In other news, Hunter has been placed in the gifted program at his school. I don't want to make a deal of it to him, because I've known way too many dysfunctional gifted people and it takes a lot more than smarts to function in life. Hunter has a hard time getting out the door in the morning... I told him last week that if he couldn't get downstairs for breakfast (all ready to go otherwise) by 7:00 he would have to spend the day (after school) in his room. He did just that one day last week, so today when I reminded him of that, he was down by 7, and then had plenty of time to get to the bus. After school we got him a new bus pass since he's lost his last one. Baby steps!
