little man has a name
i've been taunting my readers enough with my innuendos of this little guys name, so i think it's time for the reveal!
bradley and i have had names picked out for our babies even before we were married, and to our surprise, we never changed our minds! boy or girl, it was decided. i was really excited to learn we were having a boy because along with our first name choice, we decided to honour my late fathers name as this little guys middle names.
we haven't kept his name from family and friends, and anytime someone asks, we excitedly share so we decided why not let the world know! and so friends, here it is...
hendrik!!! and with his middle names, hendrik duane lawrence simons. we already know it suits him - unique and strong, but nothing he can't live up to as a little man. we know he will be called henry too, as our little nieces and nephews refer to him as that in my belly (and we love that as well!)
how did we come up with hendrik? well, we first were spitting out hendrix, but 'hendrix simons' didn't flow well together, and perhaps a little cheesy because bradley is a musician ;) so then we went with hendrik instead! we are beyond excited and can't wait to put a face to his name!
it looks like little jack approves too! he had some baby time this weekend and he couldn't get enough, we think he'll love little hendrik and they'll be the best of buddies.
any other brave parents to be willing to share their name choice!?
