It's official... Cooper is indeed Cooper! Perhaps I should clarify. All doubt has been removed because the doctor confirmed that we are definitely having a boy!
His name will be Cooper Allen Halquist. I can just hear his friends and coaches calling him "Coop" already!
We had our big ultrasound appointment this morning and he looks perfect. All the organs were checked and are in the right place and functioning properly. He measured in at 15 centimeters (or 5.91 inches) and weighs right at 1 pound.
He is a BIG boy, growing nearly two weeks ahead of schedule. In other words, all of his measurements have him at 22 weeks and a few days when really I am only 20 weeks and a few days pregnant. There's no discrepancy with the due date, he's just a big boy!
Of course, this revelation sent his Dad on a tangent. I believe Rich's exact words when the doctor left the room were, "Oooo! He can be the quarterback at UF and break all of Tebow's records!"
I must say, he does look a little reminiscent of the Heisman Trophy with his arm all curled up in this picture. Tuck a little football in there and we're good to go.
Hey... you never know!
