Baby One: 18 Weeks… It’s a… BOY!

*Please note, this post was originally published on my former blog “Here Comes Baby One” on December 21, 2011. I’m republishing this content on this website to have it all in one place. Hope you enjoy digging up memory lane with me!


So, Id’ like to start and say that we are SO excited to welcome our baby BOY into our family in May! His name is going to be Jude Hill and we THINK the middle name will either be Noah or Michael. We are leaning more towards Noah as of now. It was so amazing seeing our little boy dancing around in my tummy and hearing his little heartbeat. (and it’s so great to call him a he rather than it!)
