Genetics and a crib

Brian and I are constantly arguing over what the babies will look like. He doesn’t believe me when I say my family has strong genes. My father’s family is Swedish, I’m third-generation American. They marry dark people and consistently have blonde-haired, blue-eyed, pale as snow children. My mother is Cajun, brown hair and eyes, and my brother and I are both still extremely fair. Brian is part-Native American, so he’s pretty dark; he says if we have blonde-haired blue-eyed babies he’s having them DNA tested!

I finally got the baby shower invitations out this week, and apparently everybody’s already getting them. We came back from buying more boxes this afternoon, and we got a call from Babies-R-Us, saying somebody had bought something on our registry. A crib!!!! One down, two to go! And these are old friends of my dad’s who I haven’t even seen in over five years; I didn’t expect more than a card from them, much less a $100 crib. Wow!!! We’re going to go pick it up tomorrow after we move and set it up in the nursery. Our first nursery furniture…I’m just walking on air right now, this is so cool! *sniff* Now I’m crying…
