My Apologies to 58.9% of You


First and foremost, I’m trying not to be the “I told you so” type, but to all my family and close friends, I TOLD YOU SO! I knew it. I knew it. I knew it! Mama Whoorl is quite intuitive, folks. Too bad Papa Whoorl didn’t possess the same instincts.

Ok, the time has come! Let’s take a gander at the ultrasound photos.

Awwww, look how cute!!


Crossing the legs, just like Daddy.


Count ’em, five little fingers.


And the Piece de Resistance…DRUMROLL, PLEASE….


HOT DOG CITY! It’s a Whoorlito!



  1. aw, a wee little whoorlito…as opposed to a whoorlita i assume? ;)

    congrats! now, on to picking out his name! (do we get to vote on that too? ha!)

  2. Congrats! I was one of the 41.1% that thought it was a boy. Hopefully he’s as in to sports as the two of you seem to be. He’ll have a great time growing up.

  3. i knew it was a boy.

    or did i say girl?

    i suck at guessing!

    happy day! whoorlito!

  4. Amazing! He looks remarkably similar to my son at that age. Seriously, congrats and enjoy!

  5. Ladies who shall be born in 2006, watch out! This guy will be a lady killer supreme.

    Congratulations to both of you again!

  6. I KNEW IT!!!!!!!

    Nice package on the little fella. We should set him up with my niece, who will be born in late may.

  7. Jege,

    Yeah, he’s packing some heat!

    I’m in on the set up.

  8. I knew it all along! hah. not really. Congratulations!!

  9. Yea! A little friend for baby SAJ! Congratulations.

  10. yeah! a boy for my girls to pick on or pick up, whichever!

    so happy for d and you!

  11. Yeah a boy!! SAJ’s daughter better watch out!

  12. Awesome! Boys Rock :) You will have lots of fun.

  13. Wow, I was totally wrong. But congratulations! I can’t wait to see little whoorlito!

  14. I SO totally called that one. I believe I was the first commenter to use the term “whoorlito”. You may kiss the hem of my robe now.

  15. Congrats! How exciting!!

  16. Does this mean the PowerBook is OK?

  17. I was so right! Congrats… boys are SO much fun.

  18. Yes, the Powerbook survived! It was a happy day around here yesterday…thanks for asking. :)

  19. Baby Bug says, “ew! boys have cooties!”

  20. Maliavale says:

    Congrats! The arrow just makes the whole picture post work. ;-)

  21. Jurgen Nation says:

    I’m gonna have a nephew! Woooot!!

    Wootness aside for a moment, how on EARTH do you read these things?? They just look like Rorshach ink blots to me. I can’t see anything but a little bean in some.

  22. Oh, wow! Congratulations. My guess was totally wrong, but I’m happy for you both!

  23. Sweet–congrats! It looks like your ultrasound was done at the right time! I think mine was a little late (24 weeks) and the baby was much more cramped. Her head was shoved between the placenta and my tummy and they never got quite the money shot little whorlito showed off.

    I see you and Jege are already plotting the hook-up. Just keep me posted :)

    Stacy–they’re really cool to see. If you know of someone having an ultrasound to see the baby–go! At times, the spine looked like a huge row of teeth (i was looking at the monitor from the side) and it was really scary! Also, when you actually see them moving the wand around, it looks much more cool and like a baby. The pix never do it justice.

    Little Whorlito is already quite photogenic though! Congrats again mom :)

  24. Awww ya! Congrats on your boy’ing and the healthy u/s. So nifty.

  25. You can already tell he’s gonna be a heartbreaker. The kid’s got a good profile. Congrats, boys are fun!

  27. I KNEW IT.. A sweet Boy!! Congrats!
