IT'S A(nother) BOY!

The sonogram this morning gave us a 95% of probability: Milo is getting a little brother! Lots of intense emotions stirred in my soul during this priviledged encounter: the profile of the little one appeared neatly on the monitor, we saw him sucking his thumb while the doctor measured his cranium and legs and abdomen etc. Then he seemed to be scratching his nose, playing with his tiny and already wonderfully designed hands...a boy...an encounter with our destiny: one path we will not walk on, another path opens wide ahead of us! Life with two boys! Cars, airplanes, wrestling, footballs, robots, computers, blues and greens, action, sports...I'm sinking gently in the feeling, starting to feel like a Queen Bee! It was so precious meeting you , little boy, now we are gonna find you a lovely name!

Congratulations Clo!! How wonderful!! Now comes the fun part: finding a name that is pronouncable in Italian, Flemish, and French :) We had a very hard time finding a boy's name that doesn't MEAN something nasty in the other language (whenever I liked a name in German, my husband told me it means something bad in Spanish, and the other way around) :)

WOW! I know all about having two boys (and the little irony that is on someone whose biggest dream child-wise was to have a daughter :)

Congratulations! It's fun for them, though, they get to be friends and play together a lot (at least that's what they tell me, mine are still too young to be really close! :)

Finding a name is *so so* hard - it's such a huge responsibility, isn't it? I'm sure you'll find a beautiful name, though.

Thank you all for your warmth!
I am writing a post on choosing a multicultural name, stay tuned!
