HE HAS A NAME!!!

I will say, naming your child is one of the most hardest things to do. You take two people who have different thought processes on what they think a good name is and try and find a compromise. Really how do you compromise when you LOVE a name so much. When it comes to something I really really like, I have a hard time not being stubborn, not being open minded and not being pushy to get my way. I really have a hard time with the word No too. Yes that word was thrown around a few times.

Well when we didn't know what the sex was we had thrown around some names. We really liked Jacob, but it was the #1 name in 2009 and chances are it will probably be the #1 in 2010 which means by the time he went to school he'd probably be sitting in a class with 10 other Jacobs. So off the table that went. So when we found out surprisingly it was a boy, the discussions really began! I immediately knew the name I wanted once the technician said we were having a boy. I had one name I LOVED and Stevo had one name he loved and trying to convince each other that our choice was better than the others choice made for some very interesting discussions. I may or may not have stomped my feet a few times in protest. He didn't dislike my choice, he actually really liked mine. He just had a hard time picturing calling his son by it. Um hello, he was still getting used to even realizing he was having a son let alone having to call it by and actual name. Then his first choice for a name, well I did not and could not see naming my son the name he had chosen. It was not a bad name at all, its just, well, I had already imagined our little boy with the name I had chosen and calling him by it. I guess it's a girl thing, we always put the fantasy together in our heads and I already saw myself calling to him while he was running through the house.

So after many debates we decided. I won't say that I won because really it is a great name and fits well with our last name and Stevo did contribute the middle name which was a much better choice then the one I was putting with his first name. (Small DISCLAIMER though: we are happy with the middle name but not married to it if something better catches our eye. So far nothing works as good as what we have chosen.

OK OK enough stalling...

Noah Michael will be making his appearance (hopefully on time) on April 12, 2011. I am absolutely in love with his name and can't wait to see his little personality build up around it. Now if we could just make the clock go a little faster. We are so excited to start this chapter in our lives!
