This morning was my big ultrasound to find out whether Ace and Archie were going to have a baby brother or sister. They have been anxiously awaiting this news. And of course Joey and I have been too. Joey ended up not being able to make it to the appointment this morning and was super bummed. But against his wishes, and begging, I made him wait to find out with the kids this afternoon.
One thing we already knew was that our baby would be named Finn. Boy or girl, we had already decided this was baby Finn. For several reasons: I have just always loved the name Finn. My BFF had Finn on her short list of names for this baby. We love Huck Finn at our house. And of course because Ace said so.
One day she and I were going over my list of names and when I got to Finn, she immediately and excitedly screamed, "yes, Finn!!" She usually changes her mind on things pretty quickly, so I wasn't sure that was going to stick. But even with me making other suggestions, she stood firm.
The problem we had next was middle names. Ace's first choice was Huckleberries. And then there was Sunshine, Strawberry Shortcake, Blue, Pink, and several others that just weren't working for me. So I told her we were just going to use Mommy's middle name if it was a girl, and Daddy's middle name if it was a boy. So it was either Marie or Joseph. Or as she says it, "Joffus". She was happy with those.
Archie wakes up every morning and has to get right at my belly, and says, "good morning, Finn, your brudder here, I love you, Finn." We all became quickly attached to the name.
So the big question still remained....was Finn a boy or a girl??
Finn Joseph it is.
Everyone is happy.
Can't wait for this baby boy to join in the craziness that is our life.
Lots of Love!
