The VOTES are in!!

We made a Magazine Cover and wrapped it to tell our families the good news.
My 17 week belly.... (bigger this time around than with Lily - Haha)!


Yes, the VOTES are in and the majority won!! We are having a little boy in September! We are going to name him Gavin Leo Merkley. Gavin is the only boy name Lorin and I could agree on (Lo's picky about names believe it or not), and Leo is Lorin's grandpa's name. We are so excited to have this little stud enter our home in 5 months! I don't know how to deal with boys but I'm sure I will love it. Lily is going to be the BEST big sister. She already loves to hug and kiss my belly. We were also happy to see the little guy growing and jumping around inside. I have felt him every day now for the last week, so I'm thinkin' he'll be as curious and rambunctious as our sweet Lily!!

We are just SOOO excited!!

Yay! Congratulations. That is great. All the little baby boys I know right now are so calm. Seems compared to the girls anyway. I bet you are glad to know!

No fair...I stil don't know what I am having. I think that Gavin Leo is a great name. And how fun to have one of each. I wonder what this little guy will look like...dark hair, red, or blond?

so happy for you guys!! I can't wait for our little guy to get here!

Breanne said...

Boys are crazy!!!! Ans you'll love it. I have the hardest time desciplining Xander because he is so darn funny in all his naughtiness. Congratualtions! I love AZ dr. that let you find out early and do multiple ultrasounds. Here you get one at 20 weeks unless something is wrong. But I was 21 weeks, the anticipation ios killer. Do you see Dr. Holmes? I LOVED him!
