Little Boys Are Funny
My nephew, who will be 4 in October, does and says the cutest things.
William loves babies and looks forward to meeting his tiny cousin next spring. He understands that babies grow in mommy's tummy, so he got it when my sister explained that I have a little tiny baby growing in mine. His reaction? Leaning over to check out my stomach, and SO gently patting it, feeling around for the little baby. Absolutely precious.
I showed him the picture of the ultrasound and pointed out where the baby was. He held the picture close to his face, cocked his head to the side and said, "Ohhhh, it's so cuuuuute!"
Then I asked him whether he thinks it will be a boy or girl. Here's how the conversation went:
Me: "Do you think it will be a boy or a girl?"
William: "It's a girl!"
Me: "What do you think her name should be?"
My sister: "What if it's a boy?"
William: (shooting daggers with his eyes) "It's NOT a boy."
Thus, my family has dubbed my baby Pegasus until further notice.
