lol! I am no help either. I LOVE Hudson! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I too have been guilty of not popping on. School work is kicking my butt this year and I have no time at work since I am no longer in the computer lab. Miss this board like crazy!

Sorry, I haven't been around in ages. It has just been too busy here of late.
My (very late) two cents, is I like Ethan, Hudson and Dean in that order. As a name, I really, really love Hudson and we had considered it for our boy. A friend named her boy that though so it went out the window. I put it second though as I like the idea of not having three -son names.
Obviously, I really like Hayden too, seeing as I named my son that
I don't know how I missed getting in on the "name game." Have you guys settled on anything?
We were seriously considering Hudson and Mason (another -son name). I love the sound of Hudson Dale.
Update us and let us know what you are considering now that you're getting even closer to meeting son #3.
We are pretty sure that we're going with Hudson (but don't mention it on Facebook...our families can be quite pushy about names, so we don't reveal the name until after baby is born).
MIL loves Mason. My mom has mentioned loving the name Hudson, since she's heard that our neighbor kid is named Hudson. So I'm sure she will be giddy if we definitely decide on that.
I'm having my moments where I'm just ready to have baby right now, so I can get back to my old self, but then I bring myself back to reality and remember how much work having a newborn is, and then I'm fine with being pregnant longer I gotta admit that I'm not much of a newborn person. I like them when they start sitting up, and LOVE it when they start crawling/walking. One of my favorite things about my kids is watching them explore their surroundings and experience things for the first time. I much prefer that to the "bump on a log" stage lol!
And man, I'm realizing how much I need a new siggy pic! I can't believe the one below is almost a year old!! Getting those 2 to pose together these days is about impossible!! Wonder what I can find to replace it??
LOL on the siggy, Steph. I know what you mean. The one I have is like almost 3 years old. I may dig out an old baby photo of Logan to use instead.
We didn't tell anyone Logan's name ahead of time either. Our families would both find fault with anything we chose, so we kept it to ourselves. Of course, that was back in the days before facebook, so really, it wasn't that hard.
I'm one of those who loved the newborn stage. I was scared to death about facing the other stages, but I was looking forward to the "bump on a log" stage. Of course, God has a sense of humor and blessed me with a baby who wouldn't sleep for more than 2 hours until after he turned 3 years old. So I don't know if I really enjoyed that phase as much as I had thought I would.
Soak up all the stages as much as you can. It's all part of the miracle, right?
Hang in there!
I think that Carson ruined the whole "bump on a log" stage for me. He was colic-y, and had to be held all the time during the day. He would take an hour to nurse, and I felt like I had no arms for the first 4 months of his life. Guess I got burnt out on holding babies?? lol!
