It's a .....

I had my big ultrasound today and found that we are indeed having a baby. Yup, a healthy-looking human baby. Oh, and it's a girl one. I've had several dreams involving babies lately (ah the dreams of a pregnant lady!), and they've all been ones with baby girls. There was one, after watching an episode of Doctor Who (the new ones) where a slimy, bulgy alien being was trying to take over the world. It would call people to it telepathically, getting into their heads and guiding. When they reached it, the thing would take control of them and use them to take over the world. Well, it 'called' my baby girl, but she let me know it was OK (telepathically too, I guess because she was pre-walking and pre-talking). She let me know that she knew what to do. I carried her to the alien confident that my baby would defeat the creature even as it thought it was controlling her. I can only assume that we succeeded because I woke up just as we approached the beastly thing. The feeling of the dream was very confident, so we must have won. My baby must have saved the world. The other dream I remember well involved William and Anna fighting at Grammy and Grandad's new home, a 4-story, pillared, white mansion in Chicago where, in my dream, Grammy had lived as a child. The new baby was a sweet, smiley toddler standing beside her sister and brother and taking advantage of their fight over dum-dums to eat all three while they squabbled. I took the suckers from her and gave them back to William and Anna and encouraged them stop fighting. The new little girl just smiled in a good-natured way and went back to eating her own sucker without complaint. So, in my dreams, this is a happy, sweet, kind little girl who can calmly save the world from invading alien evil. I guess we'll see later if she's really anything like that.

Wow, exciting. Congrats. And the fact that she will same the world from alien invaders sounds a lot like Ender's Game. She is also a third born. So does that make Anna the friendly sister, and William Peter's position, as the plotting super villain?

Congratulations! We are so excited for you and Abby is very excited to have another girl cousin!

OK, I've now had two dreams where Anna has a little brother instead of a sister. What's up with that?
