|Baby's first high five|
I was surprised how detailed the scan was. They measured just about everything you can imagine, even the baby's ears. Since I experienced years of playground ridicule and was nick-named Dumbo in school, I was happy to read that the baby has average sized ears. Later in life, I embraced my big ears and learned how to wiggle them to impress first-dates. Brent is such a lucky guy.
Not knowing the gender is kind of hard. We're both big planners and not knowing if it's a boy or girl is kind of a big variable when it comes to baby clothes and nursery themes. There are only so many yellow & green onesies. That being said, this baby already has 84 outfits for its first year. I counted last weekend. 84. That means it will wear each outfit about three times. This baby is going to be so spoiled.
Since we've tempted fate and ignored all of the superstitions about buying baby things before the 2nd trimester and have been going all out since even before we signed the surrogacy contract, it makes total sense to put the nursery together 5 months before the baby will ever see it. We decided on a nursery theme and have already started putting things together. We went with a bold contrast of monochrome & bright red. A bit unconventional on nursery color, but it's coming together as a fun room, yet relaxing room.
The next scan is in a month, so hopefully it will be a very boring month for us!
