Joshua Joseph Madsen

So he finally has a name. Picking out a name is nowhere as easy as I thought it would be. We've been talking about names since we got engaged, looking through books and debating 'em for the last 9 months, and came to the conclusion that we'd know his name when we saw him. Not true. We've spent the last four days frantically "trying out" names on our little boy and not feeling very confident about any of them. We decided on one, and then spent that night in agony wondering if we'd made the right decision. So the next day we tried another name, and so on. We finally got pinned down when a nurse came to help us fill out our birth certificate and went with our gut on Joshua Joseph Madsen. We really do like his name, but I'm comforted that we can call him whatever we want (JJ, J, Joshua, Josh, Joshy, Joey). We love the guy more than words can tell.

We had the hardest time picking out a name for boy #2. Picking out a name for the first boy came so much easier. I have tons of girls names that I LOVE, and hopefully I'll be able to use them someday! He looks so cute. Newborns are so much fun minus the no sleep thing.
