We Are Having a Boy!

I'm so relieved.  Sigh.  I'm only 13 weeks pregnant but I got the blood test done that lets me know if the baby is high risk for anything.  It says the baby is good. 

I was a little worried about having a girl again because girls are so much work.  Agh.  Very emotional. Then again, I thought it'd be neat for Juliet to have a younger sibling to play with.  Oh, well.  It works!!

I've always liked the name Jackson but I don't like that spelling. I was thinking about either Jaxon, Jaxson, or Jaxsen.  What do you think?

I'm on antinausea pills right now.  Bleh.  Several days ago I had the flu really bad and almost had to go to the ER because I couldn't hold down any water or food for a long time.  The water is the more dangerous part.  Thankfully, it only lasted 24 hours.  I was so relieved because the very next day I was supposed to volunteer on an outdoor project.  I felt soooo weak when I first went out there but felt stronger as the day went on.  There is a huge project next door to my house and we were doing tile art on the wall.  Pretty cool!

I'm excited for you!!

Jack is really a nickname for John, though. I knew a guy called Jack (he's on my friends list, you can see) but his real name is John. So like, all his official papers say "John," but no one knows this guy by that name.

It doesn't make any sense, but it's true!

I think one way you can decide is to make a list of all your kids' names and add the different spellings of Jackson to the end. You know. Like you are writing a Christmas card. This way you can see how it goes with the other kids' names and how you like it best.

Hope that suggestion made sense. :)

I'm not thinking of it like Jack because there will be no jack spelling in the name. Since our family is French, the X definitely helps. Jackson looks way too southern. However, we really don't think long and hard about names. We are like, "Oh, that sounds good. Let's go with it." Ha.

Thank you for the encouraging words! :D

I agree, girls are much harder work. Just wait till they hit puberty!
I love the name, and like Jaxsen more than the others.
