Sorry I didn't make an announcement right away...the last two nights have been pretty busy contacting everyone we know! ;)

He's healthy and looks perfect. More than we could ever ask for. :D

Whee! Thoughts on a name yet?

:D We'd pretty much settled on Devon in the interim, while we were waiting to find out...now that we know for sure it's a boy, though, we might still explore some other names.

But I like the way Devon sounds with John's last name, Leung. It kind of rolls off the tongue. ;)

Thank you! :D

It's definitely becoming more real now, for everyone involved. My parents exclaimed, "Oh, wow...we're having a grandson!" It's sinking in. ^^

Thank you, I will! ;) John has been doing a pretty good job of that, as well. I'm pretty lucky. :D

Thanks, Drisela!! :D

Our first steambb...and it's a boy! I'm hoping he looks like Baba (Cantonese for Daddy). ^^ Maybe with my color hair (auburn). And green eyes? XD

From: [identity profile] jennibare.livejournal.com
Awww... congratulations x 1000! How exciting. I'm loving that name you have picked out too. It does roll of the tongue.

Why do you want bb to look like Baba?

Will you be posting pics of the U/S? I always loved looking at them even if I have no clue half the time of what I'm looking at.

Thanks!! I'm glad you like the name we chose! ;) John still thinks we could consider others, but I personally think this is the best choice.

Oh, and I didn't mean to say I hope he only looks like John....it's just that I think John is a cute guy. ^___^ Therefore our son would be cute. But I'm sure he'll have an equal amount of both Baba and Mama!

And you know, I would have loved to post a pic of the u/s that we had on Wednesday....but Boy Bunny was turned around with his back toward us, and while we got great shots of the back of his head, brain and spinal chord, we couldn't get any clear picture shots of his face or the front of him! The tech managed to jiggle him around and look underneath to see his little dangly part that way, but it was kind of disappointing overall. It almost looked like he was hiding from the sonogram! ^^;

We're having a follow-up one about two weeks from now, which will be the 3-D u/s (apparently 17 weeks is too early for that, I was informed), so I will definitely post those pictures then!

If you guys are curious though, I can show the pics of his back? XDDD

You know once you've picked a name it's pretty much a done deal. After we knew things were a go, we couldn't even think of any girl's names. Michael was it for us, so he would have been screwed if he had been a girl. Granted we had joked about Theodore Edward... as in Ted E. Bare... the poor child would have had a rough life.

*facepalm* My brain lapsed and I forgot what Baba meant (even though you clearly translated). I was thinking grandpa. totally different word, I know. @@

that's funny that he was camera shy. I'd still love to see them if you would like to post pics. I'm such a sucker for things like that.

From: [identity profile] misora.livejournal.com
Hehe, no problem!

Ted E. Bare!!! Oh my god that's hilarious! XD (He might've never forgiven you for that, though. XD)

If you'd still like to see the latest u/s pics, I'll have to upload them and post them here. Like I said, most of them are of his back. ^__^ Not too exciting. But he has a really pretty spine! LOL

Heh, well now you know what to go shopping for and which pronouns to use. That's so very helpful! I'm glad your baby boy bunny looks so healthy. <3 So excited for you! <3

Yay! :D Thank you!

I'll have to get some pointers from you...you're quite experienced at this whole raising a little boy thing, after all. ;)

Devon sounds like a cute name (and unique too!). *hugs* Congrats again! I still think it's funny that your cravings matched up with the traditional "boy" cravings and your intuition was right!

Nursery prepping time? Got any colors in mind? :D

Date: 2010-11-13 05:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] misora.livejournal.com
...I think it's kind of amazing that my cravings and prediction were dead-on. But now I know why I haven't been craving cookies/cakes/ice cream! ;)

And about the nursery, I actually fell in love with this bedding pattern several months ago, way before I knew what the sex was...and it's really pretty and gender-neutral, so it works for boy or girl:

Mint green and brown...it's a nice, soft blending of feminine and masculine colors. (Plus I just love those colors together. XD)

I'm so happy for you that I had to hug a pillow. I'm sure he's perfect. Congratulations, sweetheart! <3333

LOL I've been so emotional lately because of stress that I'm choked up right now. XDDDD

Blow him a kiss from me!

Aw, I'm sorry you're stressed. Hug that pillow tighter! ;)

Thank you for your well-wishes! It means a lot! And I'll have to post his sonogram pics sometime this afternoon, as silly as they are. ;)

Congrats! So glad to hear that all is well and that your baby boy bunny is looking good!

Totally understand you wanting him to look like his Baba. My cousin is pregant right now too, think she's a week or two behind you, and her hubby is half Korean. The family [the women folk] keep ohh'ing and ahh'ing over how adorably cute the baby will be with his/her Daddy's looks mixed with my cousin's.

My best friend is a quarter Korean and her brother's daughter has his asian features, but has her momma's ash blonde hair. Ridiculously cute.

Definetly post pics when you can!

Thank you!!

Aw, sounds like your cousin's kids will turn out like Jon & Kate plus 8's brood...they're *really* cute kids. I think Jon in that show was 1/2 Korean.

Ohhh, Asian features with blonde hair is sooo pretty. I knew a guy in college who was 1/4 Hawaiian, but he was blonde/blue eyed. His eyes and nose were really Asiatic. So pretty!

I'll be sure to put up some pics soon! ;)

CONGRATS to you both!! The past few months have been very much Boy Season for some reason - of all the gender checks we've done for 15-21 week bebe's, about 80% have been boys...hmm

Have fun with names and going crazy buying all sorts of adorable things :D

Date: 2010-11-13 05:36 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] misora.livejournal.com
Thank you! ...80% boys?? That sounds really high! Maybe having boys is a seasonal thing? ;)

Wouldn't that be weird? But I think it's just a strange turn of events that the pregnant moms who choose to come in to see us happen to be having boys...otherwise,that would be way TOO FREAKY XD

Thanks, girl! :D We're definitely thrilled. And the nice thing is, after all of this testing, we can finally relax and enjoy the rest of the pregnancy without worries. ^^

OMG CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now the fun part begins. (What will be the name?!?!?!)

Date: 2010-11-13 05:39 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] misora.livejournal.com
Thank you!!!

Indeed, now we can have fun and relax after all that prenatal screening. Whew!

We've decided so far on Devon as a first name. It goes really well with John's last name, and I like how it doesn't seem to be a very common name. Seems like everyone is naming their boy "Jayden" or "Hayden" these days. ^^

We might still investigate some other names, but right now Devon is the frontrunner. ;)
