Well, it's...


...another stinkin' boy! He is healthy and growing just as he should be. Of course, Ruby was at this stage, too, but that's for another more serious post. For now, we're just thankful and excited! Madeline has recovered from her 5 minute meltdown (Mom, we were wrong, she was mad!) and Noah is so excited. He'd planned for us to name the baby Hannah Montana (for Madeline) if it was a girl or Luke Skywalker if it's a boy. He also wanted to name Ruby that if she'd been a boy...or Stick. It was a toss-up. Now he's got Jack saying we should name the baby Stick. But Noah is very sure this baby should be Luke, preferably Luke Skywalker, but he'll take Luke. So that may be in the running (the Luke part, not the Skywalker part...)...other than that we have nothing. We could always go Jared, Jr, but Jared's never been big on that. But he does like the name Jed, which could be a contraction for Jared...but we were so careful with Jack to just name him Jack so he would be named and called the same thing. Who knows. We're out of ideas at this point, so we welcome the suggestions! Thank you for your prayers...keep 'em coming!

Goodness me, another nephew! Jeanne just told us and said we need to think of "calm" names. . . :) We are so thankful that the baby is growing strong and pray for a full-term healthy (maybe not so much bouncing) baby boy!

Congrats! I love love love boys... was actually kind of disappointed when I found out Anna Kate was a girl. My little boy just melts my heart. I love the name Luke. I'm not familiar with the name Stick. What's that from? Anyway, praying that Blueberry Boy remains strong and healthy.

Stick is a really fabulous name. I of course think Luke is a great name, but I can make no promises for calm . . . Jack was #2 on our boy name list. Similar taste I think.

God wants you to be the mommy of three boys.... and a girl! I think it's wonderful news. I have to say that I like the name Jed.... it's a keeper. Yay! for a healthy ultrasound. You are in our prayers.

Maddie will definitely need HER OWN BATHROOM now. Stinky, smelly ol' boys and their messes. What about a compromise on the names J.Lo (or J.Lu). Glad to hear that baby boy Blue is doing well! Hey, I like the name Blue!!!!

Dana said...

I still like Blue or Bleu. I think it'd make a great middle name. How about Jedediah Blue Smalling! Of corse, I like stick, too. Congratulations! And just think. Four amazing kids, and only one wedding to have to pay for!

Oh Maddy, I feel your pain. I wanted a sister so badly and then Landon, my last hope, turned out to be a boy. As an adult I can honestly say that I wouldn't trade him for a sister...but I was not too excited about him when I first learned the news. So glad that the baby is healthy and I'll keep all of you in my prayers. -Sherrill

I am so excited about this new little baby boy! Since the boys are all big St.ar Wa.rs fans, how about Jed Isaac...you can call him "Jed I." tee hee
