We have a name!

I had the feeling that I was having a boy from the very beginning, so boy names were all I could really think about.  We did not even discuss girl names until last week, because I wanted to be able to start calling him/her by name as soon as we found out what we were having.  We were set on two boy names pretty early on and knew what the middle name would be no matter which name we chose.  After thinking about it for a while, and talking to friends and family members the decision was pretty easy.  I have loved the name for such a long time, and I wanted it the whole time, but I wanted Luke to feel like he had a choice in it, and luckily he liked the same name that I did.  So the name of our little bambino is.....

Hudson Dale Graves

I am so in love with his name, and cannot wait to start going crazy buying all kinds of monogrammed goodies.  I think it is important for a boy to have a really strong name, and that is one of the reasons we chose Hudson.  The name is one that I have loved for a long time, and Dale of course is my maiden name.  I really wanted to carry on the Dale name because my parents had two girls so I know it makes them happy to know that the name will live on through Hudson.  All of my life (starting with my gym teacher in elementary school) people have called me Amber Dale, as a matter of fact most people thought that was my first and middle name.  One of my best guy friends told me that it was just until recently that he realized Dale was my last name. Even though I am married the majority of my friends continue to call me Amber Dale, so it makes me happy to know that he will have another little piece of me in him.  I hope everyone is having a great week!
