A New Name in the Family Tree

Many of you have heard by now, some of you I either forgot to call due to the fact that I can't remember anything, or didn't answer your phone, or you somehow stumbled on to this blog by accident for which I'm terribly sorry (but, now that your intrigued, please grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair)...

I'm going to be a father!

You may have heard rumors that my beautiful wife and I were talking about starting a family, and they were true. Lauren is almost 10 weeks along and we got to see our little peanut (that's about what it looks like) on an ultrasound which was really incredible. We feel very blessed, and excited, and that healthy scared-out-of-your-mind fear.

We've already been talking about names, but we can only come up with girls names -- we'll see if that is a sign... apparently Lauren is a fifth generation first-born girl, so... We've already banned the men on Lauren's side of the family from making suggestions, otherwise all of our children would be named after Andy Griffin characters. Also, Lauren has some peculiar names on her side, I'll share a few: Roxy, Menona, Eunice, Ouida (pronounce Wida), and Alfonzo ... need I say more. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment and we'll put them in the mix, or let us know of any crazy names in your family.

The countdown is on, check out Lauren's post for more info and pictures from the ultrasound.
Congratulations Austin!!! That is so exciting. You guys will be great parents. Enjoy these next few months of relative sanity. So happy for you.

Congratulations to you guys!

CONGRATULATIONS! Corey says he owes you a phone call... We are so excited for you!!

Friend, I already told you on the phone how I feel about this. So awesome.

And don't rule out "Opie."
