Baby’s Name: Emma
How did Mom and Dad meet? We met in a bar in Mystic, CT.
How did you tell family and friends you were expecting? It was my brother’s birthday weekend and Jeremy and I were in CT visiting. I had wrapped a framed ultrasound picture of Emma as a birthday present for my brother. He opened it and there it is! My whole family was around.

Did you find our the gender beforehand? What were Mom and Dad’s reactions? Yes. It was a competition between us and Jeremy won. He was sure we were having a girl.
