The Bump has a Name

We have officially come up with a name for baby #2. Drum roll please...

Hayden Catherine

I, of course, reserve the right to change my mind about the name at any point in time because I am a hormonal pregnant woman after all. And yes after three "J" names we are going with an "H". I never meant to start a theme by picking the name Jillian the first time around. We just happened to like it.

I've now reached the halfway mark amazingly enough. My back is really starting to feel it too, as little Miss Hayden seems to be burrowing into my lower right backside causing sciatica and pain. It can be especially bad on the weekends as I tend to be on my feet more cleaning and running errands. Jeramy got a quick pic the other morning. The picture quality isn't great because apparently the flash wasn't on but you get the idea. For comparison you can find my 20 week belly pic with Jillian here. Pretty similar, I think.

In other news, it seems that we have a peeping tom at our house. We'd call the cops, but she's kind of cute.

What a sweet name! Close enough to Jillian to sound like sisters (meaning it flows when yelling the 2 together, haha!)- but different enough that you might not mix em up too much! -My sister is Jess... mixed up ~all~ the time!

Jillian is just so adorable- that stripy little outfit is too cute on your peeper!

Oh I love the name!!! I love your disclaimer too!

You peeper has fabulous fashion sense....what a cute outfit:)

Oh SURE. Make the baby-naming thing look easy. Get gender scan, pick name, end of story. Blech. *blowing raspberries in your direction*

But seriously, what a CUTE name! Hayden. Well done.

I, too, am jealous of how easily you seem to come up with totally cute names. We agonized *forever* over names. Congrats!!!

Jennifer said...

I LOVE THAT NAME!!! Even if you do change your mind ;-)

That's the cutest peeper I've ever seen!

Amanda said...

Beautiful name! Even if you don't pick it when the time is here.

You look beautiful! & I wouldn't turn that peeping tom in, either. She's just too cute to send away. ;-)

Congrats on half way! It is amazing. And congrats on finding a name you love! We aren't sure yet. haha.

Thats such a lovely name hun! And, Jillian just gets cuter by the minute I believe. Don't you just love stripes on babies? Some of my favorite outfits for Cullen involves stripes =)

Oh, I love the name! And the disclaimer is very important, too. We'll understand if her name is Hayden for only a short while!

OMG. I am SO fucking jealous over your baby bump. I want to be pregnant again SO BADLY!

Okay, jealousy over. (not really)
