The 4 Year Old's Thoughts on Pregnancy and Babies

"I'm going to be a nurse when I grow up. Then when people have babies I will put my remote control up to their belly and tell if it has clothes on it or not."

"Momma, you're having a girl" he informed me.
"I am?"
"Yes, because you're a girl.  If it was in Daddy's belly it would be a boy."

"What's that?" he asked as he touched my knee. 
"My knee..."
“Well, it's bumpy.  Momma, if you're gonna have a baby in your belly you gotta get a bump in your belly.”

Pointing to my chest: "What is that?”
"The words on my shirt?”
Now poking my chest. “No, THAT!  And that.”
So I give him an appropriate explanation.  
"OH!  I thought they were babies. I thought that one was a girl and that one was a boy."

"Can I give the baby a nickname?  I'm going to name it Green Cutie Baby."  Later he informed me that "If it's a boy I will call it Green Handsome Baby and if it's a girl I will call her Green Cutie Baby."

At the first ultrasound:  "Well, I thought inside your belly would be brighter!"  

Can't wait for the next edition of "new baby" photo!

  1. This is so cute! They have brought smiles to my face several times today! I think the one about the first ultrasound is my favorite :) Maybe he's afraid his little brother or sister is afraid of the dark?

    1. Hahaha Bonnie, who knows!? He just kept saying he wanted my belly to be brighter and more colorful. He also said the baby looked like a grape!! You just never know what's going to come out of his mouth! :)
