Dangling Participle...

IT'S A...

BOY!
And if that first one isn't a good enough picture, this one is SURELY proof! That's NOT a finger!


My little muscle man!


Kinda looks a bit like the terminator doesn't it?


Waving goodbye!


Oh, and to better explain the title of this post- This last summer at a
family gathering my grandfather was talking about all the many
things people learn that become useless. As he was finishing up,
he said,
"I bet there isn't a single person here that can tell me what a
dangling participle is!"
I asked, "Well Grandpa, do YOU know whata dangling participle is?"
He said, "Not anymore..."
And I replied, "Well, I know! It's how they tell the difference between
baby boys and baby girls!"

Haven't seen Grandpa laugh that hard in a while... (Oh, and one of my
uncles really DID know what a dangling participle was... he's a school
teacher.)

It was MY dad huh? I wasn't there for that conversation, but my dad remembers all kind of stuff.

Congrats on the boy Pam & Joe!

And those are some of the best ultrasound pictures I've seen. you can deffinatly tell you're having a baby and not some kind of blob with fingers.

CONGRATS Pam! I think you are such a cute pregnant woman.. I haven't had the time at church to tell you you look GREAT!
I have 16 more days until my baby is HERE! And I can't wait... hopefully sooner than 16 days... but- you know how it goes!
CONGRATS again!
