Yep. It will be three boys contributing to the chaos at our house. Haley will stay the lone princess of the group. She and Preston kept telling us they were hoping for a little sister, so we were afraid they'd be disappointed by the news yesterday after the ultrasound. But they were just excited to know one way or the other. Knowing that it's a little brother makes it a bit more real to them.
We asked them if they had any ideas for names. Preston suggested that we name this child Baby Brekken. We pointed out that it might cause some confusion, since we already have a Brekken in the family. Then he had no more ideas for us.
Haley suggested Brian. But since we already have my brother Brian, my brother-in-law Brian, and Aaron's friend Brian - it feels like we probably don't want to add yet another Brian to the list. She also suggested Spencer, Freddie (short for Fredward) and Gibby - characters from iCarly. I think we're going to pass on those - especially Fredward and Gibby!
Personally, I like the name Fletcher. I've been lobbying for Fletcher since the first time we were picking out a boy's name. However, I'm sure you've noticed that neither of my boys is named Fletcher. I have a feeling that this one won't be named Fletcher, either. Aaron feels very strongly that Fletcher is a last name, not a first name.
I've also always liked the name Jacob. But now with the Twilight craze, I think there will probably be a lot of Jacobs out there. So that one's probably out.
So we'll have to keep thinking and looking. Lucky thing we've got a few months left to decide!
