Baby Gross' Sex Revealed

So, Wednesday we had the ultrasound done to determine the sex of baby Gross. Like I did with Riley, I drank a Coke before the appointment because I have heard of people who couldn't tell what the sex was because the baby was asleep. So, with Riley I drank a Mtn. Dew, with this baby I drank a Coke. Well, we were in that ultrasound appointment for OVER an hour because Baby Gross just wanted to dance! We didn't get the money shot until the very end of the appointment. I even went to talk to the doctor then went back into the ultrasound room to have it done again! The technician then said what she thought the sex of the baby was, but after looking at it for so long she told me to come back tomorrow and they would look again to be 100% sure of the sex! So, I went back and it was great! They confirmed what the first ultrasound technician said it was and I got some 4D pictures of this sweet baby and didn't even have to pay for them! (since I had to come back). James thinks all ultrasound pictures are creepy and I am just amazed! But anyways, ITS A BOY! And he's healthy and everything looks good!

His name will be: Giles Hazen Gross

Explanation behind the name we chose: Giles is my Maiden name for those who have only known me as Gross. Hazen is James' brother's middle name and Grandpa's Mom's Maiden name (did you catch all that?) But I really just like the name Hazen. So, that is his name and James and I love it and love that we will now have both girl and boy. Riley is SUPER excited to be a Big Sister and have a little brother. That's what she tells us now, but we'll see when Giles gets here!
