Boy name may not be an issue now!

As of today I think Matt and I have come up with a boy name we both love : )

Braylon Matthew (pronounced Bray-lin)

Let me know what you think...

What is baby up to this week...

Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like... well... a baby!

Here is a better picture from my 8w3d u/s that i took with my phone.

Kinda looks like a creepy alien but its my baby :)


Ok, so Matt and I are having a difficult time deciding on names. We have a girl name that is locked in stone that we love but cant agree on boy names!

Our girl name is Addison Lynn and the temporary boy name till i can get Matt to think of something i like more is Peyton Matthew.

Anyone have any good ideas for different boy names? I love the name Jackson but Matt shot it down, and will not budge from Peyton. (which i think is a little bit of a girls name although there is Peyton Manning)

HELP US!! :)

(also i think this baby is a girl so if it is we have nothing to worry about but i want to have a boy name picked out in case im wrong) :)
