It’s a boy!!! Bennett and I were duped and have learned that we should just listen to our mothers. (Maybe our little one will realize that sooner than the age of 24, haha.) Both my Mom and Mary were certain almost the entire time that we were going to have a boy but Bennett and I thought that it was a girl. Whoops! Sorry Louis.
Oh yeah – and that’s what his name is: Louis Brock McKinley. (Louis comes from Bennett’s great-great uncle Louis Bennett. My mom’s maiden name is Brockway. Therefore we’ve covered the family names fairly well.) Louis is pronounced “lou-ie”, although will be “lew-is” formally. I’m thinking Bean is a pretty good name to continue calling him as well.
I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am and how great it feels to actually be able to use the term “him”. I love that the little being inside of me is now a person. A little boy. I’m in love.
I was going to put up the video that Elizabeth filmed for us while the ultrasound was being performed but I don’t have the energy to do so at the moment. I promise that I’ll put it up tomorrow!! Until then, enjoy the pictures of our little Louis.
