changes are coming!

We went to the doctor today and we know what we are having...it's a boy! I have 4 months to get used to the idea. Here are a couple pictures, one of him sucking his hand (he did that while doing river dance on my bladder) and just a little profile, it looks like he has Ayda's nose.

Yay!! A little boy Gower! I am very excited!

grammy said...

I'm starting the name suggestions - officially. How about Darrell Darrell Gower or maybe Thor as a tribute to his Norwegian ancestry??? Congratulations can't wait to hold him and let him sleep on the magic chest!!!

Krachel said...

wow. this is so exciting! what a whole new way of thinking for you. don't you think it's all part of God's plan that we have nine months... because by the time we figure the sex of the baby at 4-5 months we need the next 4-5 months to get used to the idea!

i laughed when i saw someone else posting about dirt... i don't know how well that will go over in your home!

now you just need a dog and you'll be set. :)

Marta said...

Cool, someone to carry on the family name!!! I only had a girl, and Kjerstin has a boy, they are equally charming in their own way!!!

Jenn said...

Those pics turned out so cute! I love how clearly you can see him sucking his thumb.

Happy Holmes said...

I say anything with LaRaco sounds good! did baby just kick as you read this? I think so... it's becuase he likes it!

Deja Marie said...

Congratulations! The first thing I pictured...truly...was Ayda dressing the kid up with make-up and all...it's gonna happen! Trav would hate that wouldn't he!?! Name...Dejarnando after is his Auntie Deja is good. OF course LaRocco is a winner or maybe Flank (just came up with that one on the spot--I'm talented!) Love ya and Congrats!

Congrats!!! Everyone I know is having boys. It's crazy! I'm with you on the whole getting used to having a boy thing. What do you do with a boy? It's exciting though.

Lynette said...

congrats to you and the hubs! how exciting! any names come to mind?

Cristina said...

You are going to LOVE having a boy!! They are so different from girls but they are so fun to have around. Congratulations!!! By the way we are also having another boy!!

Jessie said...

I'm going to have to agree with the name Thor—give a little tribute to where you guys met.

Scott and Ashley Gower said...

If you want a shout-out to where you met, I think "Rick" might prompt fewer questions than "Thor."

Scott and Ashley Gower said...

...or Spori.

Jessie said...

Oh, those are good ones. I'd probably go with Spori.

Emily said...

Big congrats on the new addition. I hope you are feeling well and that time flies. But not too fast, just as fast or slow as you would like it. All pregnant women should get exactly what they want.

JoshandHarmony said...

Yay for boys!! (That's what I'm having too!)
