i am one

so it's starting to hit me that we will soon be a gang of four.

2 boys and 2 girls.

i converted to judaism, did you know that? probably not, i don't tell you anything anymore. it was a really great day. (sometimes i wish i could be more "present" and enjoy moments rather than worry if everyone else is having a good time.) the day went amazingly it was almost surreal. one of those days that takes a while to wash over me.

i dipped 3 times, bean dipped 3 times. then we got dressed and went for coffee. our hair was still wet from the mikvah. no one else knew that i had just committed to raise my family jewishly. we just sat and drank coffee while the bean and her grandmother ate yogurt with granola.

then we headed to the synagogue to have a little ceremony. that dang torah is heavier than i imagined. and i had to hold a scroll in each hand and with this belly, it was certainly a challenge. it was fun though and i remembered the shemah. and i looked into my husband's eyes and cried. so we are all jewish now. bean can marry a conservative if she chooses. danger will be born jewish. now if i could only remember to kiss the mezuzah when i come and go. :)

i have always said that those 3d sonograms creeped me out. likely (knowing me) because i thought they were expensive and that we couldn't afford one. turns out the sonogram lady could have been doing it all along. so she gave us some pictures of the danger boy all 3d'd up. of course the dad wanted a picture of his cocknballs. she obliged.

this is his face
