We had our second ultrasound today. Everything is going well and now we know what we are having. Drum roll… around October sixteenth we will have a baby boy, most likely to be named Elliot-something-or-other. We are still working on middle names. We got to hear the heartbeat again and Jes’ blood pressure is so low that she is going to live to be one hundred and twenty. All measurements for the baby are in the normal and healthy range – right on track.

I don’t think I’ll post pictures from the ultrasound as they are more spooky than cute. Everything is normal, the baby is very healthy, but at this stage he is skin, bones, and organs. The ultrasound pictures are a little alien – think skeletal old man. With his arms in the picture, the face shot looks like a jolly roger. These will be cool to have in Halloweens to come. On the he’s a boy front, there is no doubt that he is a boy – fully equipped. Crap, now I have to figure out how to be a dad.
