Little John

Today I fell in love with the name John all over again.

It has been kicked around through the entire pregnancy (family name on my side) and I've always liked it since way before this baby was even a twinkle in his daddy's eye (what a creepy phrase....) I've thought our next baby would have Johnathan in his name. But we simply haven't found a way we love it yet.

But today, Tommy said it while patting my belly Bee bee Yawn? and now I simply can't imagine this child being named anything other than John.

Of course after we watched Toy Story 3 a few weeks ago and I asked Tommy what we should call the new baby he said "Andy!" and then I was in love with the name Andrew. Until Josh made a face when I told him, that face made me like the name a lot less. It also made me like Josh's face a lot less....but that's another story for another day.

So I'm not saying that this baby will be "John" forever, but right this second when his brother and his mommy are particularly swoony over him, he is John. Little John. Little John Junior. (OK, not the Junior part....OK maybe the Junior part.....)

I wonder if this baby knows how much I love him.


  1. ahhhhh. When our little John was born, people would ask Ruth and Kate what their brother's name was and they would say, "Don."

  2. Tommy Hood and Little John
    Walkin' through the forest
    Laughin' back and forth
    At what the other'ne has to say
    Reminiscin', This-'n'-thattin'
    Havin' such a good time
    Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
    Golly, what a day


  3. cute! if you end up naming him john, you'll have a cute story to tell him later down the road about his big brother sorta choosing the name. :)

  4. oh, i love little john!! so cute!

  5. Cute, I really wanted to use the name John for one of the twins had one been a boy. Not so much because I loved the name but because my moms twin brothers name was John...and he passed when they were 4 months old. We took the girls form of John instead and went with Jane.

  6. Toy Story 4 huh? You must know people who know people because I didn't even think they were planning on doing a 4th yet you already have it and are watching it?!?!

    LOL--you can TOTALLY blame that on the preggo brain, it's allowed. John is a cute name, Jerimiah's middle name is Jonathon (after my brother)
