If you were listening closely at about 8:30 CST this morning, you should have heard the sound of Jon being a very proud daddy.
We are absolutely thrilled and I stand by my original contention: I wasn’t wrong…I hoped it would be a boy! Those of you who voted boy, congratulations! Jon admitted to voting 5 different times, so that poll was a bit misleading.
He looks absolutely beautiful. Growing right on schedule for 20 weeks, he’s already 12oz. We saw so many views of his little body: arms, legs, fingers, toes, spine, a four-chambered heart, diaphragm, kidneys, brain, and even his nose and lips! I could feel him moving all during the ultrasound, and have been feeling him more and more since last week.
After searching for a while, the ultrasound tech got a great between-the-legs shot (which I’d noticed earlier, but didn’t say anything for fear of being oh-so-wrong). She said, “Any guesses?” and I stayed silent. Jon finally ventured cautiously, “Is it a girl?” When she typed “BOY” on the monitor, Jon said, “It’s a boy?!?! How can you tell?” She pointed out a particular piece of anatomy – a 99% certain giveaway.
We plan to name him Jonathan McCrary Keller, Jr. We can’t wait to welcome our baby Jack in November.
