Pictures from Telling Our Parents

We told our parents on Friday, January 8th that we were having a boy ... John William. We had them over for dessert, and they learned it was a boy when they got their piece of blue cake. Then, we told them all about the ultrasound, but we made them wait a little longer to find out the name. Needless to say, they were getting a little antsy! Once we had all finished dessert, we gave our dads Scrabble tiles with all the letters of his name to unscramble.

Everyone had a great time, and we have posted some pictures below from that night.

It's a . . . BOY!

We are officially having a son named . . . John William Welstead.

We were at our appointment and looking around taking measurements and then it became rather obvious. The ultrasound technician asked me if I wanted to tell Emmalie what we were having which was obvious to her that we were having a boy since I could even tell!

He currently weighs around 10 ounces. He is a little over 7.5 inches long from head to his heels or 6 inches or so from head to his bottom. The doctor said that within the next couple weeks Emmalie should begin feeling him move around. His heart beat was 150 bpm.

Speaking of moving around, the ultrasound technician kept talking about how active he was. At one point, he was basically waving his arms to us. Halfway through, she had to change where she was looking because he had flipped himself upside down.

Here's one of the pictures (not the one identifying him as a boy).
