It's A Boy!!!!!!!!!!!!



Well, bring on the blue stuff... It's official, we are having a boy!
53% of people who voted said, girl... (I was in that group) however, my beautiful and intuitive wife, Laura, said boy alllllll along! Not to mention almost everyone in our family! I guess I was just saying girl so if it happened to be I would have already prepared myself for it.

Not that having a girl is a bad thing, but having a boy first really would be a nice thing to have off our shoulders... for one, we don't have to worry about having our name stolen!
With that being said...
Mauldin James Skates will be a very welcomed addition to the Skates household.


See the pictures...

And then there were balls. I fully understand when it comes to wanting a boy first. It's nice to know the fruit of your offspring will bear your name. A guy on my street kept trying to have a boy, four girls later they finally gave up.
