it's a...

Well, I originally wanted to wait until we decided on his name, but it's obvious that we aren't going to magically decide right this minute. We're getting closer, though! So, I won't keep you waiting any longer.

Baby number two is a...

BOY!!

I won't lie. I was disappointed at first. But now, as the idea of having TWO little boys is starting to sink in, I'm excited. I hope this baby will be a cuddly mama's boy like his big brother. If so, I don't know what I'll do with myself. I don't know how I'll be able to handle so much cuteness all at once!!

We've narrowed down our list to five names:
Sullivan Grey (Sully) {Sullivan is my maiden name}
Emmett James {Too close to Elliot??}
Finnian Jude (Finn)
Milo Benjamin
Cyrus Grey

  4. Congrats on another boy!
    I like all your names but I really like Sullivan as it is meaningful for your family of origin. I'm planning on giving my maiden name as the middle name for our first daughter for similar reasons. I will say, Emmett is rather similar to Elliot. Plus then if you have a third child would you feel like you have to keep with the E____t theme? I like this blog for help on baby names- http://swistlebabynames.blogspot.com/ Perhaps you should submit your list!

  12. I love Finnian Jude! I like the 2 names together, and Finn is such a cute nickname. So happy for you! I would LOVE a girl, but I really would be okay with baby #2 being a boy again...they're so sweet. :)

  13. Oh my gosh! So excited you're having another boy!! Elliot will really love having a little brother. I know that Bennett is excited about having a little bro. (okay he doesn't really "Get" that he's going to have a baby brother but I'd like to believe that if he understood, he'd be ecstatic! ha ha).

    I love Sullivan. I think that name is awesome. Sully reminds me of the main character on Monsters, Inc! We love that movie. I do think Emmett is a little too close to Elliot, but that's just my opinion. Milo is my favorite, though :)

  18. Yah for boys!!!

    Out of the ones you've narrowed down I like MiLO the most.

    After reading the other comments I think Bennett Sullivan OR Jude is real cute.

    If anything keep an open mind and have a list for the hospital. To see what you feel he is.
    --- I was supposed to be Emily , My mom took one look at me and said well she's not an Emily.
    The next day while watching little house on prairie she decided i was a Laura!!! And boy am I glad, I HATE the name Emily. Funny too cuz our #1 girl name is Emilia (Emmy) lol.

  20. Congratulations! I love the name choices! I understand the initial disappointment. At a 15 week scan they guessed I'm having a boy and at first I was disappointed because I had such strong intuition that it was a girl. I have my anatomy scan tomorrow, but now I'm excited about having two boys.
