ben wilson This is the blog of a one Ben Wilson, a Louisville, Kentucky native who enjoys baseball, beer, music, bikes, things that fly and good food. By day he pushes pixels and makes the Internet happen for a local advertising agency. His wife, Kelly is an Ironman, and his baby Amelia is the cutest thing ever.

No really good way to “tee this up”, so here goes:

Lima Bean at 12 weeks

Lima Bean at 12 weeks

It’s a baaaaaby! Kelly is pregnant! Right now she’s 12 weeks and a handful of days pregnant with a due date of July 12th! There are not enough exclamation points in the world.

We won’t know the sex for another couple of months, so in the meantime Kelly and I have been referring to it according to it’s relative size. It was Raisinette for a time and then Pinto Bean and then Lima Been and I’m voting for Fig Newton next.

The timing was as such that we surprised all of our families at Christmas with surprise ultrasound photos. Much screaming and yelling and flapping of hands and crying ensued! It was very special and everyone was very surprised and excited – especially considering they’d given up hope on us! Sheesh – we’re only 30 years old here, folks. Not like we need children ’cause we are going to die at 35 like it’s 1787 or we have a large farm to tend to!

Oh my god oh my god oh my god.

  3. Ben, that’s so awesome. I’m really happy for you and Kelly. That’s a pretty exciting way to break the news to the family but it IS pretty convenient to have them all there at once. Again, congrats on becoming soon-to-be parents.

  4. It’s not official until it’s on the web, right? Congratulations again! And good on you two for waiting until the time was right!
