We have a name!!!!!

So after months and months of going back and forth, we have FINALLY decided on a name for this little guy! It has been very difficult coming up with, and agreeing on, another boy name. If you know me, you know I tend to be, well--- very indecisive! I like to say it's because of pregnancy hormones, but I just have a hard time making a decision---any decision!!!! I know I drive my husband crazy!!!
When we were pregnant with Riley, that poor boys name changed daily. We called him Jacob, Zachary, and Max at different times during my pregnancy! All three names were even individually put up on his nursery wall, only to be taken down a week or two later! I even have a Christmas ornament with Max engraved on it!!! We didn't decide on Riley's name until a week or so before he was born. With this little guy we have known for a while what we wanted his name to be but I wanted to be sure before I announced it on my blog!

Well, we are sure!!!! ( I think... J/K!)

Anyway... his name will be...

Hudson Renwick

Hudson... because we just love that name, and Renwick was my great-grandfather's middle name!
It was very important to us for our children to have a family name as either their first or middle name.

~ Corban Michael (Michael after his daddy---Michael Shane)
~ Riley Jameson ( Jameson after my Grandfather- James)
~ Sophia Hope ( Hope is my Grandmothers middle name)

~ and now Hudson Renwick (Renwick after my Great-Grandfather)

Now, we must get to work on his nursery! I painted it last week, and Shane sanded and primed the furniture, but there is still so much to do! Maybe this weekend we will make some progress!!!

LOVE it! Of course Hudson is our boy name if we ever have a boy - so I'm partial. I know he will be such a pretty boy!

I love it! I like that you don't hear it that much!It will go great with your other kids names. Every time I would pick a name out for our kids by the time they were born or we would get them home they were every where!
