What's in a Name?

Here is the ultrasound picture of our little guy, that I said I would post over a month ago. I know, poor thing, already suffering from being the second child. However, it did take us a lot longer to decide on a name this time around. With Sara, we had her name, along with a boy name picked out, way before we knew what we were having. This time around, we had no definite girl name picked out, and still had our old boy name, from the first time around. And when we found out it was a boy, I think we both assumed we would use the name we had picked out from 2 years ago, but we both started second guessing it, so we started throwing around other names, and finally narrowed it down to two that we both liked and would be happy with either way. So, I let Jeremy make the final decision, one because it was boy, and I liked the idea of him being named by his father, and two, I'm incredibly indecisive :) His name: Samuel Ray Carter. We really fell in love with the name Samuel, or Sam, as we plan to call him, for lots of reasons, but mainly b/c it's such a strong name. His middle name is after Jeremy, and it's also the middle name of both his, Grandaddy(my dad) and Papa(Jeremy's dad).

Also, we've started work on our bonus room, so I'm hoping it won't be too much longer till it's finished and I can get started on Sara's big girl room and Sam's nursery. We've already bought his furniture and the store is holding it b/c we don't have anywhere to put it right now, and I think I've almost got the bedding narrowed down, but again, I'm ridiculously indecisive, so I may let Jeremy make the call on that too :)

So there's my update, it only took me 19 days into the new year. I'm really going to try to be better :)

AAAWWW...He is adorable :o). Love the name! From the day Nathan was born, I have called him my back-seat baby, he has had to wait for me to take care of Mattie (she is soooo needy for a 5 year old). But here lately he is pulling his own weight in the neediness department :o) Congrats again!
