What's in a name?

Well since we have concretely decided on a name, I thought I'd share.  I'm not one to keep the baby's name a secret, though I wanted to be sure we weren't going to change our minds before we told the world. 

So here it is...our baby boy's name...

We will call him Jake.  I just love it!  It was what I had picked if we had a boy the first time around so I'm glad my husband likes it too. 

Daddy's initials are JDH and so will Jakes.  I wanted to keep the same initials without having a Jr.  You see my father's name is Jeffrey too, it was get confusing, and that's just too many Jeffrey's.  Jeffrey's middle name is David too, which was his grandfather's name.  I really wanted to keep the family name.  Also, I did not want to call him David because someone would inevidibly shorten it to Dave or Davey and I can't stand that (sorry if that's your or your son's name).  Jacob is also a strong bibical name, I really like that. 

So there you have it folks...our SON'S name (still can't get used to the fact I will have a son, eeek)!
