Parker is THRILLED to say....



He really is excited to have a little brother, but not so excited to hold the sign. It is practically impossible to get an almost 2 year old to hold a sign facing forward and smile at the same time.
We found out a couple weeks ago that we are going to have another boy and are so thrilled for Parker to have a little brother to play with. Plus, Brad is relieved because he wasn't quite sure how he was going to handle changing girl diapers since you can only wipe one direction. We have decided we are going to name him Garrett but not sure on a middle name. Any good ideas?

I really like this picture of Parker. He looks so grown up and cute!!! I cant believe he'll be 2 in a month, amazing.
Middle name? How about David? Its a good strong name... and all the David's I know are really cute, smart and cool. Garrett David Ball, sound great to me.

CONGRATS! Parker will be such a good big brother. Dallin has that same outfit that Parker has on and I think they kinda look a like! Must be the Ball genes.

Keli'i and Megan said...

Congratulations Ball Family! Yeah, another little boy! And yes, Keli'i went through that same wiping dilemma, but eventually got over it. But, two boys in a row! So fun! Congrats for the new baby!

How exciting! Another BOY!!! I love the picture. I just finished a fathers day photo shoot and couldn't even get a 5 yr old to hold a sign and smile so no worries, He's only 2 (almost).

Congratulations you guys! It will be fun for him to have a brother!

Ash said...

YAY!!! Two boys are so much fun! You're gonna love it!! Congrats!

Although Jill may be just a bit biased I kinda like Garrett David Ball. It sounds distinguished. I also think Garrett Leon Ball or Garrett Douglas Ball might be other distinguised family names. But if you want to go out on a limb... how about Garrett 'Harold' Ball. (Okay maybe in poor taste. But I made myself laugh... Harry...ha, ha, ha.) I think I need some sleep. Love you, Becky

Shane and Becky said...

Em, Hey we have a friend named Garrett Mathews (last name, and he is married to an Emily.) Anyway it made me think Garrett Mathew Ball sounds good too. -Beck
P.S. I for got to mention how ADORABLE Parker looks in the sad photo.

Beardall Family said...

YEAH! Another boy! Parker will love it. Cynthia swears by having 2 boys together. Kyle and Kevin are the best of buddies... at least most the time. I hope you are feeling better! I'm sure Garrett will be just as cute as Parker, you guys make the cutest kids.

Shelly said...

Congratulations. I laughed because my Jared was scared about having a girl for the same reason. He survived! (I think boys are easier anyways)

I love your blog... Parker is so adorable. When (not if;) I have another boy I want him to be just as cute as "Park." It's so fun blogging so let's keep in touch.

Dan & Melissa said...

Emily, what a perfect blog. Okay so Park is so cute. I've decided that when (not if;) I have a boy I want him to be just as handsome as Parker!
We still need to have you guys over. We love you guys.
