28 weeks and names

This is the never ending draft of a post. I'm 28 weeks along with baby #2. I went to the doctor yesterday. Everything looks good-I've gained 16 pounds so far-a few more than I had with Landree, but I'm still on track to only gain about 27-28 pounds so I'm good with that. My little guy moves around all the time! I love feeling him moving around. I'm just adding this instead of editing this post...once again.

I started this post when I was 23 weeks and now...I'm already 26 weeks-this pregnancy is going so fast. I can't believe we don't have a name picked out yet or a room decorated, and the kicker, that I'm not stressed about it!

I had another ultra sound May 13th, and I'm so happy to report everything is perfect! Thank you so much for all of you who prayed for us! The placenta has moved so I can go ahead with a normal delivery and his {unnamed baby boy} heart is perfect!

The hunt for the perfect name is on-here are a few we have on our list:

Hudson {this is one of my favorites}

Jackson {we have a friend named this, but this is one of our top picks-it's actually Jeff's favorite and was the name we had picked out for Landree if she was a boy}

Walker {I love this name, but Jeff said he thinks of Chuck Norris and Walker Texas Ranger. He thinks everyone will make fun of us since we are from Texas, but I think it fits us :) Only the grown ups would make fun of us. Kids his age wouldn't have any idea who the Texas Ranger is, right?}

Jones {the name my dad has pick out for this baby and what he'll call the baby no matter what-no one is called by their real name. Actually, he calls Landree Jack because we liked the name Jackson}

Grayson {some of our friends/beach camp chaperons suggested this and I {love} the name, but I'm wondering if it's too much: Grayson Gray. What do you think?

So really Jackson, Hudson, and Walker are the top choices. We like Roberts as his middle name, that's my maiden name. Any other suggestions? I like trendy-ish, nothing too weird, or too normal, no Matthew, Mark or John's.

No belly shot today. I will get one soon to post! My momma can tell you I'm really pregnant. She saw me last week.

I love all the names, I really like Hudson though! We are trying to come up with a name as well, it's very difficult! Can't wait to see belly pics!

Hudson is my favorite!

Tricia said...

I still like Walker. (even though Rufus is my first choice :) Don't care what Jeff says. You can tell him that we will probably give you guys a hard time no matter what the name is (just because that is what we do).

I can also attest to the fact that you are really pregnant, but I think that Rufus is just growing.

I love the name Hudson. Glad to hear things are going well!

So glad to hear you are doing well. I love, love, love Hudson! It's not too common or overused yet!

My vote is for Hudson!!!! That was one of our picks for baby #2 over here... but we ended up thinking it might be to many H's. Hudson Hamilton Howry. A mouthful:) SO I think you should pick it because it's such a great name!!!!!!
Glad to hear you're feeling well!

REALLY like Hudson! My next choice is Walker and then Jackson. Walker would go with Ranger (ha ha!) and I just think of you friend when I hear Jackson. Love Roberts for the middle name. Grayson is neat but not with Gray - too much! Poppie will just have to adjust! Can't wait to see the belly next week!

Julie said...

Yay for the name discussion! Here's my vote:

1. Hudson
2. Walker
3. Jackson

... although I gotta go with your dad on this one - Jones is my very fave!

Wow Jen, sounds like everything is going really well! I'm bad at picking names! LOL!! We didn't have Kendra's till we were on our way to the hospital! It looks like I'm expecting too! Due in February...I covet your prayers!

So glad the you and the baby are doing so well and that you will have a normal delivery!!

Can't wait to see the belly shot...
Love HUDSON!!!
My #2 is Jackson, have a nephew named Jackson, too...
#3 walker is cool!!!
we were going to name a boy Grayson, I have to agree Grayson Gray is too much...

Hudson sounds so cool!!!!

Ha ha ha I like Walker too, but like Jeff, think of the Walker Texas Ranger.
Jackson is my favorite (as if you need another opinion thrown at you). You could call him Jack for short.
I'm soooo excited your having a boy! You can get clothes or accessories (they really don't have much for boys) from Megan and I!!!!
