Drumroll please...

The baby was positioned frank breech when we took the money shots...meaning baby was folded in half with its head between its legs...that may have thrown some of you for a loop! Below is a much clearer shot (also from the bum looking up between the legs), which would have given it away immediately & stolen all the fun!


We put everyone who guessed "boy" into a drawing for a $10 Starbucks giftcard. Our lovely Isabelle Rose drew the name, and the winner is... The CAULLAY'S!!! [Who suggested the names Captain (Kevin's suggestion) and Aidan (Bernadette's suggestion)].


"Oh, that's definitely a boy, there's no mistaking it," our tech said. You should have seen the look on Aron's face! He was totally expecting them to pronounce girl. When she said, "Look there's his penis.." Aron's jaw hit the floor, but at the same time, he had the hugest grin. Then he started pumping his fist in the air exclaiming, "Its a boy, its a boy!" I am so excited to have a son, but scared to death! What will I do with a little boy?!?! You all will have to show me the ropes!

Well, what can I say. Despite the fact that my brother says I have all girly sperm, looks like this little guy made it through (he's not even born yet and I'm proud of him!). I have to say I am super excited to be having a boy. I don't know why, but I had pretty much conceded to the fact that I'd be one of those dads with six girls going on seven trying for a boy! But, it looks like the Lord had mercy on me and decided to balance the scales around here (and He knows we need it--between Isabelle and her mommy there is way too much estrogen and drama around here!). I'm with Grandma Jean, too: out with the Barbies and pink and in with trucks and blue (and flying V guitars/loud rock music, of course)! Hooray!


Thanks to all for participating. We had as much fun reading your comments as you all did writing them. IT'S A BOY!

Congratulations from the Dexters!

Boys are very different from girls but fun in many, many ways. Also much messier.

We can't wait to meet your little guy in person and hear what name you choose.

HOORAY it's a boy! I can hear him and Aron jammin' on guitars already...
Thank you Belle for drawing our name! It's the only thing we've ever won, well Berni won 10 gallons of ice cream when she was 8! Starbucks here we come...
Seriously though, this was lots of fun, and we're so happy for all of you and can't wait to meet the little man.
Love you guys!
Kevin, Berni, Hannah & Brigitte oh and Tobi too :)

Congratulations! We are so thrilled for you...You say you don't know what to do with a boy...but before you know it you'll be saying "I don't know what I'd do without my boy."

I can confidently say he will melt your heart!

That is awesome! It's such a blessing to experience both boys and girls! Don't be fooled on the "less drama" thing.....take James Moore for example and that's all I'm gonna say about that.....

I'm so happy for Aron. I'm sure it's great to have a daughter, I wouldn't really know, but I know that as a father having a son is really special. The opportunity you will get to help that little guy to grow into the man he needs to be is awesome. Live it up man. Be the proudest dad ever!
