Hank at 20 Weeks

Isn't he be-YOO-tiful??? And no, his name is not going to be Hank. That is just what Maw and Ashley (Alan's mother and sister) call him--his family is BIG on nicknames! Since we haven't found the perfect name yet, we've all pretty much taken to calling him Hank in the meantime. If you have any suggestions for cute boy names, by all means, SHARE!
He is perfectly healthy, as far as they could tell from the ultrasound, and although he is supposed to be 10-11 ounces, they estimate that he already weighs 15 ounces! Apparently that is not as dramatic as it sounded to me--they said he is basically measuring only 6 days older than his estimated due date, since at this point he is starting to grow almost an ounce a day! Alan is 6'7", and Jacob was a pretty big baby, too, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he is measuring large. Probably means another C-Section for me whether I like it or not. :(
Oh well, as long as Hank comes out healthy!
