A wish and a request

First off, scroll down and read the goings on of our family this last little bit.

Today is Aaron's birthday. In the midst of the gratitude season, I am indeed grateful for him. Like today when he loaded Anna in the car for me when I took Harris to school or how Saturday he did all the dishes and cleaned the kitchen while I went to get a hair cut. Also, he will always get the good ice from Smith's for me. I know, as most of us who have been in my present state, that this last bit is just as hard on the Daddy to be as the Mom to be. I am not always the best sport. Yet, Aaron has been, sweet, kind, observant, and helpful. I am so lucky to have grown with him in love.

Now a request: We are now narrowed down to three names for this baby boy, I think. If you would be so kind as to give us your vote it would be helpful. It seems to change day to day what one is my favorite but, with d-day approaching we need to give this boy some identity. So here are your three choices:

John Preston Nydegger (we'd call him Jack)
Henry John Nydegger
William John Nydegger (we'd call him Will)
Other suggestions will be considered.

Happy Birthday, Aaron!

You've chosen three great names--I'm surprised, because I actually really like all three (I usually can say-"Oh, I like ___ best" without hesitation.) I guess if I HAD to pick, I would say John Preston Nydegger is my favorite! I love the nick name Jack! :)

I like John Preston. It just feels so good. I'm so glad your "back" too!

I also like John Preston :) Whatever name you will pick will feel right to you. I'm so glad you updated your blog. I've been wondering how you are. When are you due?

Dan: My vote is for John Preston. I think it sounds down to earth yet dignified. I vote against Henry John, because it sounds like an American Tall Tale Legend. Krystal's vote is for William John. Austin's vote is for Slobbery scream.

I also like John Preston, mostly because I LOVE the name Jack! I'm so excited to meet my newest nephew!!! He'll be here before we know it!
