We are so excited to announce...


We had our ultrasound on Friday and found out that we are having a girl! We are thrilled and cannot wait to be parents to a precious daughter! Ashley made me this awesome image with our news and her name, and I couldn't just post it here to disappear as more blogs emerge... so it's also on the sidebar for keeps. :)

As for her name, Patrick and I love talking about names. We even talked and made lists of potential choices on our honeymoon of all things... We are both rather opiniated {surprise! :)} and Addison is the one that we both actually individually picked out. Camille was my middle name and is a family name on my mom's side. So, we've pretty much had this name picked out forever. However, most of my close friends know that I have commitment and procrastination issues... It's like once I say it, it is real--and that scares me because I want to be so SURE and I want it to be right and perfect... I HATE second-guessing myself, and I have totally been second-guessing myself on this one even though it's the only name I've found that I absolutely LOVE and think "fits" her. Patrick is totally sure, and I think Lindsay will be devestated if we change it--she's already attached. Savannah and Addison--cousins and best friends.

We'll call her "Addy," and her initials will share my favorite Basketball conference! :) {I could not find any names that I like that went with the SEC and my Auburn heritage, so I had to be excited about the ACC and my Duke and UNC basketball!} So, it's a done deal... at least for now. :)

I'll post one of my ultrasound pictures soon!

PERFECT name ;) I'm so glad you committed! AND finally announced it officially. You needed to be official and enjoy the announcement ;) You'll be second guessing yourself even after she's born...don't worry...its part of it ;) Two days before Emerson was born, Jamin and I were still debating the middle name. But you have it just perfect ;)

Now I DO have a question, is Addison going to be what everyone else calls her, and YOU call her Addy, or will everyone call her Addy? Is this too many questions too early? Cause I'm STILL up in the air about Emmy...trying to preserve Emerson at least until HS when her friends will start shortening it and I wonder if its a forever long battle ;) Ok this comment was really long LOVE YA!!!! so excited!
