Baby Gagnon

After much thought and consideration, Phill and I have decided on a name for our son. Our little man will no longer be referred to as Baby Gagnon but instead will hold the name: Christian Francois Gagnon.

And it's a.....

Phill and I had an interesting experience yesterday while at our gender scan appointment. We arrived early at the appointment to make sure that we were able to spend ample amount of time with Baby Gagnon and the ultrasound tech. Going into the appointment I guess I thought that we would find out the gender first and then we would move on to the health status report. I was wrong! We were taken back to the ultrasound room at 10:00a and we spent the first 35 minutes scanning everything from the top of Baby Gagnons head... down to it's little feet. She showed us a very healthy baby with a strong backbone, a properly working heart and all of the major components to make up a perfect baby. After a while it almost felt as though she was going to let us go without any update on the gender. Then finally the words came out "Would you like to know the gender of your baby?" Without skipping a beat, we both said yes. So she woke the baby up from a short nap it was taking and attempted to shake it's legs from the crossed position they were in. Within a few second we could very clearly see that we were having...

...A little baby boy!

Both Phill and I are very excited for the arrival of Baby Boy Gagnon. Please enjoy the recent pictures.

All Kinds of Movement

Phill thought that it would be a good idea if I posted an update about the recent movement of Baby Gagnon. So here are the two recent updates that I have to share:

  1. A bowl of popcorn: I have learned how to wake up the little one. If I sneeze while I am in a seated position, I will wake the little monkey up and it will start kicking up a storm. Movement at this time still feels like popcorn going off in my belly but when I sneeze it feels like I am making a full bowl of popcorn. Baby just goes crazy.
  2. The barrel roll: Last Friday morning I was woken up at 3a in the morning by Baby Gagnon. I woke to the feeling of the baby doing a full 360 in my belly. I get the feeling this little one is getting it's practice at cartwheels at a very young age.
We get our gender ultrasound on Monday(9.20). We will post as soon as we have news to share.
