It's never been so great, being so wrong...

We had our 20 week ultrasound today.  And it was fairly obvious that I do indeed "have the wiggles".  This baby is a boy!  (Gasp!)  The woman doing the ultrasound seemed quite sure.  It was tricky getting a great picture, but over and over, she'd say, "Oh, there it is!"
 I'm kind of speechless.  Not only did I lose to Team Tom (yet again...) but really?  A boy?  I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it.  We don't have boys.  It's always a girl...  But apparently, if you keep trying longing enough, anything can happen!
Tom can't stop smirking and I randomly break out into laughter.  I can't wait to see what a Bishop boy looks like.  So far, the girls are all clones, but we (obviously) used a different cookie cutter for this one!
 I'm pretty excited that I was wrong.  This certainly changes the dynamic of our family and I say, Bring it on!


  1. YAAAY for boys!!! Congratulations!!! I'm so happy and excited for you. Can't wait to see what a Bishop boy looks like too. Any name ideas yet? :)

  2. This baby will be so cute! How can he not be with his mama and daddy? I think he will look like Tom.

  3. A little Bishop boy will be adorable. And depending on what we're having, I may be sending you a few (or a lot of) boy things. Yay for boys!

  4. congrats!!! boys are......different than girls. ;) And try telling my parents that thing about "if you keep trying..." they have 7 girls, but they wouldn't have it any other way. And I'm sure you wouldn't either!

  5. I posted earlier but for some reason it disappeared so "I'll try again"...which is a bit of a pun considering the topic of this blog...although we know your intent wasn't to have another baby so you could get a boy. I have to admit that I am having trouble getting my head around this revelation too but I am so happy for you that you will get to experience both genders. Boys ARE different and it enriches a family to have both. Tom is ADORABLE in those photos! you think Tom will mind having his mother-in-law say he's adorable?? A boy! Wonder of wonders...miracle of miracles!
