The quiet.

The combination of a broken laptop (being fixed), a very tiring pregnancy (will resolve itself in a few months), and four wild beautiful children (the inspiration of my life who also make writing time nearly non-existent) has left me momentarily speechless.

Here's something: I had an ultrasound, and even before the technician told me, I could already see. He was not shy, this fourth boy of mine.

Yaya has adjusted her hopes, as have I. Leafy, on the other hand, had decided that little girl babies are the cutest, and is not quite resigned to another brother. He'll come around... If not before, then at first glance.
