Meet Tresley

Have you ever seen "If They Mated" on Conan O'Brien? Apparently this is what will be arriving in August 2009 from Lesley and I. We like to call it "Baby Tresley." Not only is he/she black, but also approximately 13 years old.

In case you hadn't figured it out yet, Lesley's eggo is preggo.

On a serious note, we're very excited and eagerly anticipating the arrival of the real Baby Tresley (hopefully not looking like this) in early August. Lesley is now 12 weeks along and we have heard the heartbeat and seen the baby on ultrasound so we know there's really something in there and that there is only one of them. The baby was bending and moving constantly while we watched on ultrasound. To me, it looked like there were squats being done. We may have a powerlifter on our hands.
We are very excited to see what this next stage of life brings us and happy to be blessed with this gift from Heavenly Father.

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life

I would not be surprised if the baby has some color in it. Those things have a track record of being right on, you should see the one Whit and I did.

My favorite part was the fact that Tresley looked 13.

Cindroid said...

wow. this is so exciting!! congrats. i look forward to future blog posts surrounding the pregnancy/baby.

Adrienne said...

This will definitely be the scuttlebut for the year 2009! We are so excited. And the beauty of "Tresley" is that I don't think it's too gender-specific, so you could use it for either a boy or a girl.

Lisa Michelle said...

Congrats!! That's great news!! I guess you decided Tresley was better than Lesor...?

And...I would just like to ditto what Steve Bajork said.

I'm so excited for you guys! Congrats, Lesley. I hope you are feeling alright during your first trimester. I can't wait to find out if baby Tresley is a boy or a girl. They are both great!

Starrymedgirl said...

wowzers! That is so totally exciting!! I am thrilled and excited for you guys!

Rachel B. said...

Congratulations you guys! That is seriously some exciting news. Babies are pretty cool. Tresley is the perfect name either way. By the way, I did one of those what will your baby look like things with a guy friend (who is also white) back in high school and we ended up with an 11 year old Mexican boy growing a moustache. And I'm pretty sure the moustache came from me. :(

Greg & Deb said...

Congrats! I just talked to Lauren and she mentioned you would be finding out today what you are having. Hope you're feeling good. (I'm sorry...I haven't looked at blogs for a real long time!)
