Our family dynamics have changed today.
And we could NOT be more thrilled to share that we will be parents of a bouncing baby BOY!!!
He was a bit shy, but looked oh so sweet! I am so in love with him my heart could burst.
And his name....
Most people expected his name to start with an A. Well we really weren't crazy about any names that began with A for boys, so we decided to go with Judd; our very first boy pick when we were pregnant with Ava. I was stuck on the fact that he would be outnumbered in the A initial department, so here is what we "shook" on back in February...
If it is a girl, we are naming her Anniston Lake and we will have no more.
If it is a boy, we are naming him Judd Richard and we will have ONE more and name that child a name beginning with something other than an A so Judd isn't left out.
Sounds so silly, but I really want 3 kids so it works out perfectly. And Aaron is not the kind of man who just HAD to have a boy so he was happy with that plan.
So THAT, my friends, is how we came up with his name. Nothing fancy. Just a name we both love. I don't even know what it means yet. I should look it up, huh?
His middle name is from his grandfather, Aaron's daddy. His first name is Richard. Ava has my mom's middle name and Judd will have have Aaron's dad's name. We are so thankful for our parents and it is the least we can do to honor them and continue to carry their names.
As for little miss Ava...she is THRILLED! All along she has said I was having a girl but that she really wants a "bruvver". So when we showed her the baby on the big screen and told her it was her brother she said "Ahhhh so cute little boy."
She is going to be the BEST big sister to a little boy.
And as far as SheShe Made boy's line is going.....you can expect to see LOTS of baby boy gowns, JonJon's, and matching brother/sister sets in the future. My head AND heart are exploding with the ideas!
