the bean gets a new uncle!

kristen and chris got engaged today. looks like the corbal family will have more on its hands than just a little bean. we approve of this union – unless chris proves to not be a good italian catholic boy, then we will approve of it even more.


happy times!

what will the bean look like – a quiz

we know you have thought about it: what will the Bean look like? will s/he get his/her mother’s sultry red hair? will s/he get his/her father’s enchanting green eyes? will s/he get her furry brother’s stump tail? so many possibilities are abound for a child born of two amazingly beautiful and exotic people.

we’d like to know what you think, and why (if you like).

1. hair color?
2. eye color?
3. some freckles or lots of freckles?
4. complexion?
5. tail length?
6. curly or straight hair?
7. who will s/he look like more?

these may help you in your decision making process:

e & r 6 months

e & r 1 year

$72 and still no sex

wednesday, the 8th of November, marked 23 weeks in the development of the Bean. it was also the day of Erin’s monthly doctor visit. as with every other monthly visit, i joined mommy E. for reason’s not typically “Angelean” Erin and i drove separate cars to the clinic and parked on the street, one car in front of the other.

the magic ultrasound wand ran back and forth, across Erin’s somewhat bulbous belly of bouncing baby Bean, and we asked, and hoped that the sex of the Bean could be confirmed (last month an ultrasound technician told us, “i believe it is a _, but i’m not a doctor so you should get that confirmed”). the nurse focused her eyesight and looked intently at the grainy black and white screen in front of her.

penis or no penis?

alas, the Bean would not cooperate. s/he was facing forward with his/her legs closed. the nurse could not find the proper angle and so it was determined, there would be no determining that day. bummer.

as Erin and i approached our cars on the street after the conclusion of the visit, we both noticed a white envelope adorning the windshield of each car. yes, Erin and i parked directly under a sign CLEARLY stating the allowed hours of “stopping” on said street. $36 each.

$72 and still no sex. what’s up with that?

All About Bean

* Bean is due on March 4, 2007. If Bean arrives on it’s due date, it will share a birthday with Patricia Heaton, who I personally despise for no particular reason. I would rather Bean to arrive on March 2 so it can share a birthday with Jon Bon Jovi and Dr. Seuss – much better.
* Bean will be a Pisces. Pisces is symbolized by the Fish. Pisceans are empathetic, openhearted and intuitive. They rely on their instincts rather than facts or logic, experiencing things almost completely subjectively. Daydreamy and creative, they prefer to go with the flow rather than fight the current. Element: Water. Quality: Mutable. Ruling House: Twelfth Ruling. Planets: Jupiter / Neptune. Whatever all that means!
* According to Chinese Astrology, Bean will be a Pig. Pigs are highly intelligent creatures, forever studying, playing and probing in their quest for greater knowledge. They can be misinterpreted as being lazy, however, due to their love of reveling in the good stuff. Now we know what to look out for.
* Bean’s temporary name (Bean) was chosen after we got our first glimpse of it from ultrasound images. It bore a strong resemblance to a kidney bean. Now it’s so much more than a bean, but the name has stuck.
* Bean has been moving quite a bit since mid-October. At first I thought it might have been indigestion, but it was unlike anything else I had felt before. I finally figured it was probably Bean doing somersaults. It feels like being on a roller coaster. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been feeling kicks. The other night I was laying down with my laptop on my belly, and I felt a kick so hard, the laptop moved! Bean kept kicking long enough for Rick to feel it for the first time.
* Bean has given me an appetite to be reckoned with, but no particular cravings yet. Unless you call eating saurkraut on its own a craving. And wouldn’t you know it, a couple of months back we found ourselves at the grocery check out line with pickles and ice cream amongst other items.
*We hope to confirm Bean’s gender by early December, at which point we’ll post the next contest, “Name our Baby! …maybe, but probably not”. We’ll also have an area to post names we should under no circumstances use, so start your name lists now!

More to come as Bean develops…
