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.

It just so happened that Kelly and I conceived “Fig Newton” 12 weeks before Christmas – and the general wisdom is that 12 weeks is a “safe” time to let people know you are expecting a child, so Kelly and I kept it a state secret (save for a few needed “leaks”) until Christmas morning. We placed copies of an early (but very baby-looking) ultrasound into some cheap frames and had family open them at the same time after we were done with the rest of the presents.

After much squinting and guessing, everyone figured it out and all were very, very surprised. It would seem they had given up on us having kids! What with Kelly’s epic IronMan adventure I guess that was a little warranted, but c’mon folks!

Kelly received a Flip Video Ultra videocam from Santa and we used it to capture the moment:

  2. Those were hilarious. I especially liked it when someone asked if the ultrasound was yours.

    What if you gave people someone else’s random ultrasound picture?
