The Ultrasound results are in. We are having a ........

So Erik and I cheated and went to fetal photos last month and had an ultrasound. We were too excited to wait till they 20 week ultrasound to find out what we were having. At our ultrasound we found out that we are having a baby boy!!! Deep down I knew this thanks to mother's intuition, but it was great to be able to see it for sure. Erik was surprised that I was right, I think cause deep down he really wanted a little girl, but a mother knows.

This week we went for our official 20 week ultrasound and had it re-confirmed that we are having a baby boy. So now it is official official. We also got to see how healthy he is developing so it was very comforting. His heart is developed well with all 4 chambers intact and pumping the blood well. His brain is developed nicely,he has all of his vertebrae, and his kidneys function well. Everything looked healthy. It is such a relief because with the wild card of genetics, so many things can go wrong during the development.

We have decided to name him Eli. Erik wanted to name our first boy Eli because that was the name of the boy on his senior animation project called the pajama gladiator. It was a cute 3 minute animation short about a little boy that fights aliens with his blanket. It won a student emmy because it was so good. We are excited to show it to him when he is little and tell him, "Look, it's you!"

So We are excited to welcome Eli into the world sometime around June 4th. Now you all know:)
