20 Week Update and a Name

I'm now 21 weeks along (although I have yet to take my 21 week belly pic) which means we had our big ultrasound last week!  I'm happy to report that we have a healthy baby boy!! I just love hearing that heartbeat! Of course as he was at our 16 week ultrasound, he was head down and facing my back so he was a bit difficult to see, but we did get one really cute profile picture!


I also owe my 19 and 20 week belly pictures...


We have some exciting news!! We have told our families baby boy's name so it's time to tell our friends! We bought Adalyn a big roll of craft paper at Ikea last week, so this is how we told our parents...
(Don't mind my shadow...you can read this one better.)
Baby boy's name is Cayden James. Jonathan actually picked out both names. We wanted a unique first name and I had never heard the name Cayden (of course once we chose the name I started seeing and hearing the name Caden everywhere...at least we're spelling it different) and James is my dad's name. I was thrilled when Jonathan had the idea to name our son after my dad. He's such a wonderful role model and I'm happy to honor him.

So those are all of my updates for the bebe. Well, actually I do have one more because I think I've picked out bedding (gasp) finally, but I'll wait to write about the nursery. I can't wait to start decorating!!! If only I could draw or use one of those fancy computer programs to sketch out the picture I have in my mind that I want the nursery to look like! I will say that it looks pretty awesome in my mind:)

LOVE the name!!! Cute baby bump! Do you think you are bigger or smaller with Cayden than Adalyn? You looks little to me! I'm so afraid of blowing up with my 2nd, whenever that may be!
