That David!

When Jeff brought the boys to the hospital to visit me and meet Shav soon after the birth, one of David's questions for me was, "Is there ANOTHER baby in your tummy?" I can see why he would have thought that, since this ol' stretched-out uterus didn't bounce back to its original size in the 3 hours (more or less) between the birth and David's visit. :) It's true that I still looked pregnant; and being four years old, David could get away with asking that question without causing offense. I'd better warn him before he asks his future wife that, soon after their first child is born; she might not take it so well! :)

Yesterday, David's question to me was, "When is another baby going to grow in your tummy?" Jeff and I just looked at each other, shook our heads, and laughed. We're in no rush, David Dear; that's for sure! But apparently, David is...because he then announced, "I want it to be a boy, and I think it's a boy!" which is in contrast to the "I want it to be a boy, but I think it's a girl" line that he repeated throughout this pregnancy. Ah, charming David--so blissfully ignorant of the realities of life and reproduction! :)

Little Shav is so loved, and so blessed! His big brothers can cuddle him and love him and show him so many things as he grows up! That is a wonderful picture, Davene.
