August has blessed us...

First of all, Ben and I have been married for 5 years August 16th. We celebrated with a bunch of random presents and then we are going on a trip with my family to the Grand Teton's in Wyoming.
A few random gifts we exchanged:
Two Annie Leibovitz books and a bio DVD of Annie
Snoopy snow cone maker from our childhood
Volume one of Food Networks tv show "Unwrapped"
New shoes for the both of us ( I got some really comfortable one's that are great for my tired feet)
A Willow Tree (wooden) carved statue of a man and woman hugging each other. (the five year gift is something wood)
A cute baby frame Ben got me
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie
A day at the fair with a yummy funnel cake
and I think that's all...

Then, we found out today that we are having a baby BOY! We are so thrilled and by the pictures, which we got 15 still images of our sweet baby boy, there are three of them that definitely say it's a boy. (He gave us some good angles) Here are a few below:

What do you think we should name our baby boy? Tell me in a comment below. I'd love to
hear your thoughts and suggestions.

Cristy! Congrats! You will not find greater love than the love of a baby boy to his mommy! I wouldn't trade my little boy for anything in the world. They really are so much fun! And the boy clothes right now ROCK! Target has great boy stuff, so does Gap! Oh, I am so happy for you!

Tiff-I'm hoping he will have ben's dark hair, dark complextion, and my blue eyes.
Jes-it's crazy how much detail you can see isn't it!
Stevie-thank you so much girl. So good to hear from you.
Jamie-I know everyone is having a boy and very few are having girls-crazy!
Ramie-we have heard so many wondreful things about having a little boy and we are super thrilled. And I can't wait to buy him those cute outfits.
Lauren-thanks for giving some names. I love searching for names. My cousin's name is Landon and I've never heard of Oren, but it's a cool name.
Thanks everyone for commenting and sharing our happiness with us.
