I can't believe I haven't announced this to the world yet, but Jen and I are expecting another baby! The due date is mid-September. And… we decided at the ultrasound this past week we would go ahead and find out the gender… and….
It's A BOY!!!!
I'm terribly excited, in case you can't tell. I'd had a dream shortly after we found out we were pregnant that we were at the doctor's for the ultrasound, and I'd seen quite clearly a little penis; I've been convinced since then that we would have a boy. It was amazing to have it confirmed — so many emotions ran through me — how will I be a father to a boy, how will I teach him to shave, will I need to learn about sports if he takes to them, IT'S A BOY!!!
We've been going through baby names since then. Before Maeve was born, we'd planned on calling a boy Aidan; a couple years ago, we though maybe Will would be a good name (Will is one of the principal characters in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy). However, one of my co-workers, has two boys — Will and Aidan — whom Maeve plays with, so those names are out.
We've narrowed the names down to four, though: Nolan, Liam, Gavin, and Devin. Leave a comment and let us know what you think!
Oh, did I mention — it's a boy!!!!
