We named our Son!

If you read this post (or any of my weekly updates) - you know how much trouble we have had deciding on a name for our little boy. 

Well, we finally picked one!

It's hubby's pick - but I grew to love it.  My worry was that it was to common, but we changed the spelling of it, and decided on a cutie nickname.

What was the deciding factor?  Well, I caught myself calling him by his name while I was talking to someone else.  And, it just started to feel right.  When I told hubby that I was thinking it was "the name" he was very excited.  And, that was that!

Jaxson Jeffrey Ellis

I love it.  We will not call him JJ, but we will call him Jax.  I think it's cute and fun, and a little bit different.  Hubby likes it because it's strong, masculine and he thinks it sounds like an athlete's name.  haha!

I've ordered his baby book, and hubby and I are in the process of picking letters to hang on the walls of his room.  This part is fun!

Hope you are having a great week!  Thank you all for your kind words and support throughout the naming process : )  I'm not going to lie, I'm glad it's over!!

Love the name!! I like the spelling too and Jax as a nickname. What a relief to finally have a name! Now you can start monogramming everything!

Very cute and I happen to think Jackson's are the best (since I have one too, only with the traditional spelling)! You will love having a little boy! Clint had to decide if the name would work when called over an intercom at a sporting event so I understand!
