Charlotte's new hair cut

This is Charlotte, Thursday.
This is Charlotte, Friday morning, post clandestine scissors in the bathroom episode.
This is Charlotte, Sunday morning, post mommy bawling for the better part of an hour, a mullet eliminating hair cut, and some creative use of a head band.

Yeah, so apparently this happens to everyone. Doesn't mean I can't cry about it a little! Although now, I have to admit, I'm enjoying the punk rocker look. She'll just have to wear a hat or a headband for the next 3 years to cover the big bald patch.

It's a boy!

After enduring the necessary, but hardly comfortable 45 minute prodding and poking ultrasound, we were rewarded to hear that our new baby is healthy and growing right on target. And a boy. If you look closely in the picture above, you can see a little face profile with nose and lips (on the right side) and some tangled up legs (on the left). The ultrasound tech even gave us a neatly labeled picture with an arrow drawn to point out the prominent male-ness, but what kind of parents do you think we are?? You'll have to come change some diapers if you really are that curious. :)

Jack, Charlotte and Anna all came in to see the baby at the end of the exam. From Charlotte (upon seeing the spine) "Mommy! Baby brother looks like an alligator!" Jack was subdued-- either afraid his new little sibling was an alien, or he was annoyed that he had to stop watching "Teenage mutant ninja turtles" in the waiting room. Anna was just fussy and ready for a nap but she did squeal with delight when she saw the baby wiggling on the screen. Maybe she was just happy that Mom hadn't disappeared for good.

We're fielding name suggestions. (In honor of the sometimes wacky names we run into here in Vegas, we're telling everyone that we can't decide between "Solstice" and "Raindrop". )
