I have not written much, if anything, on this blog about the child that my wife and I are expecting. Maybe it’s because this is too much of a cat blog already, and maybe it’s out of fear of compromising the little darling’s privacy online before she’s even born. In any case I am incredibly excited and happy about it, so I thought I should finally share.
She’s definitely a Carrier: She’s big, she’s healthy, she has a good head of hair, and she’s late. The ultrasound technician estimated that she weighs 9 lbs., give or take a pound. My two sons, now 11 and 13, were 9-10 lbs. each and both born with a full head of hair. The oldest came about 2 weeks after his due date. Their father is late for absolutely everything. And this new baby is definitely a girl; the technician was as certain as one can be from an unltrasound image.
We don’t know when she’s coming. My money (or at least $3 of it) is on Wednesday. I hesitate to post the final date and stats on this blog, as date and place of birth are the kind of information now used to verify people’s identity when logging on to one’s bank account.
What do you think of the privacy issues presented by sharing an event like this? The last thing I want is for someone to a) rob my house while she’s being born or b) stealing the baby’s identity 20 years from now based on our birth announcement being dug out of the Google cache. Comments?
