Life Keeps Getting Better

* Watching, playing, coaching (?) football, baseball, hockey, etc...
* Camping, fishing, hunting, etc...
* Teaching lessons on what it means to be a man...
* Having someone else in the house that better understands your gender...
* Coaching how to pee on a tree for the first time...
* Hearing a voice imitate explosions and gunshots instead of conversation with toys...

These are only a few of the wonderful things I will get to experience now that I will finally have a son!! The sonogram was today and the tech was 100% certain that it's a boy!! He showed us the "stem on the apple", thus providing evidence of his complete and total certainty...and while I am skeptical by nature, I was also completely convinced that it's a boy!! WAHOO!!! It is such an awesome feeling to finally have a boy on the way! We're so excited!! This is very new for us, and the beginning of a fun adventure! We know all too well what it's like to have little girls, so it will be fun to add a boy to the mix. Today was literally one of the best days of my life!! Thank God for accidents...or surprises! Now...everyone post your ideas for a name! I will go ahead and announce that we will not name our son a cutesy, trendy name, so you can feel free to leave out those names. :) Any other ideas would be welcomed!! Examples of what I consider cutesy and trendy are (hopefully this won't offend anyone) Dylan, Tristan, Hunter, you get the idea. I like strong and full names like Alexander, William, Michael, Zachary, etc. Jennifer likes Caleb and Cameron. Go ahead - post your ideas!!

wow aboy!!! Congrats congrats! You finally did it! I like Harrison for a traditional name! But mostly I like the tredy ones! So I guess my ideas are out.

Wow! Congrats and yay! How about Christopher, Kenneth, or Keith?

Kelly said...

YEAH!!!!!!!!!! I am so exicted for you I can hardly stand it!! Maybe it was all that optimism you had!! :)

Are you trying to get a C name since you already have two K's and one C? How about Conner, Cullen and I like Christopher. I also like Joseph, Jude and I love William!! That may be our boys name!

CONGRATS again!!!

Thanks! I don't know if we'll necessarily go with C or K...maybe. I like Christopher, but that's my nephew's name. Jenn has thrown "Colin" into the mix now. Hmm....

Kirk Wimberley said...

Correction...actually my nephew's name is Christian, not Christopher. We call him Chris though. I have an idea...we could call him Corleone!

Jeff said...

I really like Jude/Joseph/Andrew
Congrats thats awesome. This will be great your poor girls and wife are in for a treat!!

Hey, I'm so glad it will be a boy. I like Caled but I think also Constantine is ok 'cause it was an important Rome emperor...then...well, I don't know a lot of american names...give him an italian second name! ;-)

Alyssa said...

I love Willaim. Very cool name!

Laura said...

in my previous comment I was meaning Caleb not Caled. Marco says Casey is the better name for your son.
