  23. Chris Scott on October 20, 2009 at 9:20 am

    Woooooohooooooo! I think you should name him “Poor sweet Mel is going to have her hands full with a miniature Sean running around”. But that might be a little long, so we’ll just call him by a nickname. Chris, perhaps?

    So happy for you guys!

  24. Joel Hartz on October 20, 2009 at 9:21 am

    Wow… that ultrasound was pretty cool! I didn’t realize the ultrasound app was available already. Congrats to you both!
