Ingram James Gatewood

Well, most of you know by now that we are expecting a little boy in the fall! So, bring on the blue :).  We are super excited because we've had a boy name picked out for awhile but no girl name.

So what's his name you ask? Our son's full name will be Ingram James Gatewood, but we will call him "Gram" for short.  Ingram comes from my amazing Uncle and James is Tyler's middle name, as well as his dad's name.  So, he is named after men that have made an impact in both of our lives.

My Uncle Ingram, who unfortunately passed away last year, was one of the

most amazing men I've ever known.  He taught me so much about life, marriage and how to love people.  My Aunt Pat and him were such a great example for Tyler and I when we first got married.  Even after being married for over 20 years they still adored each other.  They were best friends.  We hope we can be that way after being married that long too. They also treated everyone they knew like family.  When Tyler and I were dating he loved how they welcomed him in.  I hope my son will embrace life and love people the way my Uncle Ingram did.

We are now 23 weeks in, over half way there!  And Gram has started kicking more and more, I love it.  Yesterday morning Tyler actually got to feel him kick for the first time, which was awesome and special because it was my Uncle's birthday yesterday too.  Gram gave him some big kicks with those future soccer player legs of his :).

My second trimester has been leaps and bounds better than my first.  The nausea has gone away (thank you Jesus) and I am no longer exhausted.  My baby bump is also growing, especially compared to the last photo I post.  There's really no way of hiding our little guy anymore.
