Drum roll, please

So, are you ready to know our baby's name?! I'm sorry this has gotten so built up. I really was never trying to be a tease about it. Whenever I would say we were going to announce it soon, I really did mean it, but then we would change our minds or not know for sure about the middle name or something. We have finally set it in stone though. I never dreamed we would wait this long to announce it, and I hope we won't do this again, because I don't like keeping secrets ;-)

So, without further ado, our baby's name is....

Jude Anderson Howie

He will go by Jude. That is just a name that David and I both like, which usually means it's a keeper :) Anderson is a family name. I'm excited to get his name out, so we can start calling him by name (in public). Aubrey has a cute little way of saying Jude. We'll have to get a video of it.

Whew, it feels good to get that off my chest. Haha.

Carrie - It's beautiful! Thanks for sharing the name with blogland. We kept Evie's name a secret until she was born so I totally understand people who do not share the name. Can't wait to see Aubrey as a Big Sis.

Great name! We have some friends that named their little boy Jude and when he was born, we all knew because their facebook status said "Hey, Jude!" :)
