it's another boy!

We had an ultrasound this week, and it's another boy! I have to admit that I was a bit relieved because, as much as i love my ashlee, she's a bit of a challenge sometimes and the thought of raising another girl was giving me some stress. I was very worried about how Ashlee would handle the news, but she took it with great stride and was very happy to just be a big sister one more time. There weren't even any tears shed. Her only stipulation was that the baby still sleep in her room and, since we don't have anywhere else to put the baby, it was easy to meet her requirement.
Now, we just have to come up with a name. Good thing we have 23 more weeks to figure that out! Adam really likes Jason or any combination of Cory and Steve (such as Cost, Story, or Coreve), we've always kind of liked Seth and the kids want Jack Cody. SO, do we stay with our vowel-only theme or break out and do something crazy like start this kid's name with a consonant?? Erik was almost Tyrod, so this kid could be Trevardo!

Sorry, but I think he needs to be a vowel. It just flows better. I'm glad Ash took it well. It brought back the memory of telling Evelyn that Max was a boy... BAD! She was only 3 at the time, so I'm sure that was part of it.

i think my vote is for seth, but i'm still open for a vowel name if a good one can be found. sorry, trevardo, you do not make the cut!!

My vote is for a vowel too, just to keep it in the theme. Although...what if you have three or four more kids? Then you'll pretty much be forced to move into consonants. :)
