    Default Sorry Everyone!

    I just wanted to write a little not apologizing or not being around much. It's been a really crazy couple of months with my kids both starting school. I've had so much change in such a short period of time. And I don't adapt very well to change at all. Of course, by the time I get into a groove, things will be changin once again with the baby coming!

    I really do not have much to share photography wise. And, shame on me for not getting over here to post CC on the other threads. I will check on my phone, but I'm rarely on the computer anymore. I need to stop letting that be an excuse and offer what I can from my phone. Lord knows I have plenty of time while I'm waiting in the pick up line for Carson!

    The pregnancy is going well! I'm 31.5 weeks along now. Drew snapped a picture of me this past weekend. I will try to share it here for those who haven't seen it on Facebook. This is, by far, my most active baby. He's seriously going all Alien-style in there. Carson gets a kick out of it. Jackson is hilarious when he feels baby move. It's like he doesn't really believe anything is in there, so when he feels him move, Jackson lifts his hand up and gasps. Lol!

    We still have no name for "New-son" (as a lady at church refers to him). I'd love some honest input, though. I'm unsure whether to go with another -son name. Will they be embarrassed when teu are older? Will "New-son" feel left out if we don't follow suit? Right now, it's between Hudson, Ethan, and Dean. Why is naming a baby so darn hard???

    Since I'm on my phone, there are bound to be typos. So, sorry if this is really bad!! Lol!

    Nice to hear from you, Steph, we really miss you around here. It's been dead all summer here!!

    I wouldn't think that a non "-son" kid would feel left out, personally! Though I do like the name Hudson. Not much help, am I?

    I've had a very positive reaction to Hudson when I mention that one. Not much feedback on Ethan. Dean was one that we almost named Carson, and for one reason or another, no one really got excited over it. They would just say, "Oh." But Drew and I loved it. Until we came up with Carson Before even getting pregnant with Jackson we liked Hayden. Like almost to the point where I wished we named him that. We said that would be our next boy's name. But we hear it all the time now, and in a terribly strong southern accent, and are turned off from it now.

    This one may end up unnamed until he's born! Lol!

    Good to hear from you Steph! Glad things have been going well.

    I don't think he would feel left out without a "son" name, but I do like Hudson, too. My 2nd pick would be Ethan-- possibly because I already know one.

    I'm right there with you when it comes to choosing a name. We have a name picked out if it's a boy, but I just can't decide on how to do the girl name. We already have Alaina and Aiden. It wasn't my intention to name them both "A" names. It just worked out that way. The girl's name we have "chosen" is actually the name we were going to use for Aiden if he had been a boy. It's Ashlyn Kylah (the Americanized spelling of Aislinn Cadhla) Literally translated to "Dream Beautiful". We can't decide if we want to use Ashlyn Kylah, Ashlyn Cadhla, Kylah Ashlyn or Kylah Aislinn. I really like the names and love the meaning--- especially since we never thought we would be able to have a baby on our own without help. She will be our beautiful dream. I am partial to traditional spellings, but don't want people to struggle with pronouncing the name. And since Alaina and Aiden both begin with A, I can't decide if I want to keep it going, or change it up so we don't stumble over saying all three names. Sometimes Alaina or Aiden will come out "Alaiden" when we are frustrated.

    Danielle, I love the name you have chose! I definitely get the "traditional" spelling, but I know that for me, personally, it would bother me with people mispronouncing my kids' names. That being said, not that many people are going to be seeing the name in print, so it may not be an issue until getting into school age.

    See, I feel like I'm in the same boat with the -son. We didn't intentionally name them both -son, it just so happened that I love the name Jack, and when Drew brought up Jackson, I jumped on it. Everyone said that they didn't make the connection between the -son until they knew us for a while, but I think it would be pretty obvious if we named the 3rd -son. But darn it, it would be funny that I would have "My 3 Sons"!

    Do you have a boy name picked out?

    Our boy name is Collin Marshall. Aiden's middle name-James- is DH's dad's name, so we wanted to use my daddy's name this time. Not only is Marshall my daddy's first name, but it was also granddaddy's first name, and is my oldest brother's middle name. We came up with Collin while searching for Gaelic/Irish names since both Aiden and Alaina have the same origin. I never would have thought to use it on my own, seeing as how my maiden name is Collins, but we really liked it.

    I figure if we end up having a girl, we will decide based on how she looks. I hope! Seeing as how I have a feeling it's a girl, it makes me nervous not knowing for sure.

    Ethan, Hudson, Dean would be my order for the names. I don't think son #3 would feel left out with a non-"son" name.

    Names DH and I had picked out when expecting our girls but didn't know the gender.

    Christopher Alexander
    Julian Alexander
    Liam Owen
    Liam James

    Do you have middle names picked out? How do the names you like work with them? and your last name?

    Middle name will most likely be Dale, after Drew's grandpa. Don't think it would work well with Dean, but we could always use Alan, which is Drew's middle name. Alan definitely won't work with Ethan Lol!!!

    Oh and I love the name Jackson, but my DH isn't as big of a fan of it, yes I know you have a Jackson.
