46XX


No, wiseasses, that's not my new dress size. That's our baby's karyotype.


Normalville shall soon have a new resident. Our daughter.


Yup, you read that right. Daughter. As in, little girl.


Apparently my maternal instinct is not worth shit. I'll have to work on that. In the meanwhile, I'm floating ten feet above the ground. Our baby is healthy. She has the right number of chromosomes in all the right places with bright shiny faces. And the nurse called about five minutes after my last post. Bless you, Kaiser Permanente.


Flipper, my sweet little girl, I'm so sorry I got your gender pronoun wrong for a while there. I hope you won't be psychologically damaged by my thinking you were a boy. Although you should feel free to include this in your list of grievances when you're an angsty teen. I'm just so glad you're healthy. Your dad and I are over the moon, and all your friends in the internets and elsewhere are doing happy little dances right now.

I already wrote this on the "other site," but wanted to write again after reading the blog. I'm so happy for you both. And over the moon excited about a girl in the bunch! Boy oh boy is she going to be feted. Love to you all.

SO EXCITING. Believe me, this will not be the last time your daughter will confuse and confound you - and thrill and delight you. Keep up the happy dancing - I'm sure she is enjoying the ride! xoxo KP
