What's in a name...?
We have almost certainly named our little one, but not announced yet IRL (I have yet to write it on the birth record and mail it in..) I don't know if it's awkward or not - but our pick is Hawthorne Thomas. After ShyingViolet's tragedy I, for some reason, feel badly about thinking of announcing the same name as her sweet Hawthorne. ShyingViolet, if you do read this, please know how much I've been thinking of you and praying for you.
So, it is a 99% chance that he is Hawthorne Thomas. I think I just have to get over the need to feel the "Yes, that's his name!" feeling that I had with the others. I have loved Hawthorne since I first heard it, I will call him Huck, which I also love, and hopefully it will soon be, "I can't imagine him anything else." soon.
