It's a Boy! Name the Baby Contest Now Underway!

Here are the latest pictures of the newest addition to the Kelly family. On Monday, during an ultrasound exam, the doctors worked hard to prepare us for the possibility of a chromosomal abnormality, due to high Nuchal Translucency measurements. So, we agreed to a Chorionic Villi Sample (CVS) and we prayed and we asked lots of you to pray and we waited. Today, we got the initial Flouridized In Situ Hybridization (FISH) CVS test results back and the test was negative on chromosomal abnormalities. The odds the doctors gave us were in the other direction, so we're thankful that God worked the odds in our baby's favor.

CVS also identifies gender (Even at 13 weeks gestation! Amazing!) That's how we know that it's a boy.

Thank you to all who have been praying for us! You're the best.

The obsessive skier is now taking entries here at this blog for our "Name the Baby Contest" so post a comment with your name ideas today.

My favorite so far is Scott Jr.

Boy names? I like James Petigru Kelly in honor the famous Southern Baptist, but the best would be Charles Spurgeon Kelly, because you'd have the theology covered and Megan could call him C. S. for the literary side.

Aiden Daniel Kelly

Aiden for A.W.Tozer, Daniel because...well, it's my name, of course!

Option B: Thunder Scott Kelly

I have always wanted a boy named Thunder! Awesome!
