It's a......GIRL!

Oh yeah, in case you didn't know, I'm pregnant. I'm due feb 19 and actually hope she comes late. It's leap year afterall, and The Pirates of Penzance is my all time favorite musical. Too bad I can't name her Frederick....







If you want to skip to the leap year part, it's about in the middle. Here are the words though:

For some ridiculous reasonto which, however, I’ve no desire to be disloyal,
Some person in authority, I don’t know who, very likely the Astronomer Royal,
Has decided that, although for such a beastly month as February, twenty-eight days as a rule are plenty,
One year in every four his days shall be reckoned as nine and twenty.
Through some singular coincidence – I shouldn’t be surprised if it were owing to the
agency of an ill-natured fairy –
You are the victim of this clumsy arrangement, having been born in leap-year,
on the twenty-ninth of February;
And so, by a simple arithmetical process, you’ll easily discover,
That though you’ve lived twenty-one years, yet, if we go by birthdays,
you’re only five and a little bit over!

  2. Yay! It's about time someone had a girl. I'm sick to death of little boys! (not really) But still... yay!

  3. AWESOME!!! So I think you should STILL call her Fredrick! "With an F and an R and an R and a D and an F-R-E-D FRED!" Wrong musical, I know. That's Once Upon a Mattress. We watched FAR too many plays in my family. And I think that was short for Princess Winifred. But still, that could at least be her name till she's born because Fredrick the Fetus has a great ring to it!

  5. It's going to be fun picking out some pink things for a change, eh? I was just thinking about that the other night at the store... how adorable all those cute little pink frilly things are.

    Congratulations on a healthy, happy pregnancy!!! If anyone deserves the sweet new addition, heaven knows your family does.
