ok, people, i want to clear something up. the use of "his mama" below was a mistake.
as you can see in the comments, every once in a while i slip and use "his" or "her." it just happened to be "his" this time.
we did not find out the sex of the bean, and we're not planning on finding out. i think it will be a wonderful surprise, and i look forward to welcoming and loving our child, whatever his/her/hir's sex or gender may turn out to be.
let the rumors be put to rest. :)
