18 And Some Change

We are 18 weeks and 4 days today! I've started to feel our little one moving and kicking around. I can't wait until Mitchell can feel it with me. I keep running over to him as soon as I feel something and place his hand on my (ever growing) belly but it's way too early.

Our next ultrasound appointment will be so exciting- we find out the gender! I can't wait to hear what I think I already know- that it's a boy :) Really, we are just thankful that so far everything is going well and that Baby Young looks healthy- boy or girl. But can you imagine anything cuter than a little boy that is just like Mitchell?

It still feel so surreal that we are having a baby that we haven't even gotten serious about names yet. Every once in a while one of us will say, "What do you think about so-and-so?" And the other one will say, "It's ok." And that's really kind of it. I never realized how hard it is picking out names- you don't want anything too common, or too weird, or too cutesy, or too formal... "Figgy" is the only one that's stuck so far. (We started calling him/her "Figgy" several weeks ago when we saw that he/she was about the size of a fig at that point in pregnancy.) We should probably stop soon, or you may receive a birth announcement for Baby Figgy Young.
