It's A Boy!!!!!!!

The ives children are besides themselves with joy! Jacob is so excited to show him how to be a real man, and pass on all of his "skills."

As soon as i finished my post yesterday about craving Pho, i called dave, my partner in crime. He agreed willingly to accompany me on my search for Pho. It was a successful mission, and I left the "43rd express" with a very happy tummy. And a very happy tummy doesn't happen very often. It was a happy moment in time.

When I dropped him back off at the the base, i said, "let's go see if we can tell if it's a boy or girl!" He dragged his feet, but I made him. Within five minutes we knew. It is definitely a boy! Very exciting. We thought it would never happen. Now what to name him. The dilemma begins.

I am sad not to have a girl to name truly. But i think just plain "true" for a boy is cute. It is my favorite so far. When i picture him that seems the only name that fits so far. I would love to hear your suggestions. PLEASE!!

Heather that is awesome! This was kind of a shocker, I didn't think you'd hear for another couple weeks. But I guess that is a perk of having a radiologist husband! =)

Yes I think you should name him True. He would love the story some day.

Heather, Congratulations!!! That is so exciting! I'm still racking my brain for good boy names, but my brain won't let go of Joshua.

Mandee said...

I am so happy to hear it's a boy! Do you even know how to "do" boys after all those girls? So fun!

Yipee - I knew it. We are very partial to Edward (yes it was a favorite long before Twilight) but will never use it cause Eddie rhymes with our last name. I also love the names Preston & Brandon.

Congratulations!!! How wonderful!! I'm so excited for you!! :) I think you should stick with the Biblical theme you've got going on... James, Samuel ;), Joshua, John, Matthew, Noah, etc. :D

TANTI AUGURI for having a boy!!!! that is great news!!! i've learned to never ask others what they think of a name. if you and dave like it---that's all that matters!!! if you like it; then i like it!!!!!
ciao ciao!!!!

Congrats!!!! I think the name True is fantastic! Why not, it is your child and if you and Dave love the name then nothing else matters! I looked up the meaning on a baby site as I am partial to the meaning of names: The meaning of the name True is Real, Genuine. The origin of the name True is English.

I think that is perfect for your family! :) Congrats again!!!!!!

Congratulations Ives family!! So happy for you guys :)

I love the name True, my friend's little boy is named True and I think it is a great name.

Christy said...

YAY!! I think your "you should have a boy" advice to me on Sunday must have come from all the testosterone you now have pumping through your adorably pregnant body. :) I'm overjoyed for you!!

I love the name True. Thinking of it reminds me of our little neighbor boy named Crue. That one is cute too. I haven't heard any boy names that reach out and grab me lately.

I'm glad you got your Pho. I need to try it sometime. I've heard it is so good.

Congrats to the Ives family! Bookends...how very lovely! A boy at the front and one at the back to surround/protect all of those precious and sweet sisters. What happy news. By the way, True is a great name for so many reasons! Feel well!
