Announcement from Graycen!!!



Yes, its true. Its our 8th Anniversary today and we are celebrating it by announcing the news of our pregnancy :) Finally, right?? Its been a little hard to keep this a secret!! I am 12 weeks and due on January 24th. Stay tuned for baby 3D photos soon.

At this point we have no preference with gender. Boy or girl, it will be awesome, no matter what. We will find out in a month or so what it is going to be to be more prepared :)

Now for names. We have had a list of baby names 3 years before Graycen was born, but somehow lost it, since it was in our very old PC and copied on some floppy disk somewhere. We do have a list of favorite names in our heads.

So, we would love to see comments on combination of names, first and middle for both girl and boy. What do you suggest? If it matches what we have in mind, there will be a prize :) :)

CONGRATS GUYS!!!

I vote for Jack or Jackson for a boy, Claire or Amelia for a girl :)

Amanda said...

Yeah! I've been wondering lately if this would ever happen. ;)

You have the same due date as Cindy!! Too funny. Not sure if you've heard, but we are due in January as well. My "official doctor" due date is Jan 2nd, but I'm thinking it should be more like Dec 27th...so we'll see.

Like Graycen, Maddox is excited to be a "big brudder", wants a baby "suster", and wants to know "uh...when's the baby coming out, mommy?"

Long comment...but I'm very excited to find another fellow preggo!!!!

John Nielsen said...

I think my nephews have great names, Lenox and Lincoln (coming in November). As for girls, I love my friend Cydil's name.

Matt Radlinski said...

Grats guys! And I think "Matthew" is a very regal name.

Jamie Temple said...

How absolutely WONDERFUL!! That video made me cry... how adorable is she?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!!! You can't buy that cute.

Since we are done having children I will give up our names we picked out: London Jentry for a girl <3 and Jackson Tyrus (After Ty Cobb) for a boy.
Our little girl is named Liberty Addison and we call her Libbie (or Berty if she's being silly).

Congratulations on both the anniversary and the baby! May your feet not swell more than your heart will!

jessicaclaire said...

Lisa Konecny-E Events Design said...

I KNEW it!!! I maintained my composed excitement in Denver, but I knew it! {A woman knows, right Joy?!?}
Marc, Sara, Carolina and I are beyond thrilled for you-- not to mention the "E-Ladies!"
The caveat: You can't name the baby "Bijoux" {Girl} or "Finn" {Boy} as we have already coined Britt and Sam's babies to those names. :)
My sincerest congratulations and best wishes and love...
I am soooooo happy for you all!

Tracy said...

Yeah!!! So happy for you both! No matter if it's boy or girl, may it be happy and healthy just like Graycen!

But here are some names:
Landon for boy
Madison or Caelen for girl

Here's to a wonderful pregnancy!

Katherine said...

ROTFL at Eric's comment. Too funny!

sticky said...

I can't believe all of these comments and yet still no smart-a**ed remarks from Regis!!!

Congratulations again, we are SO VERY happy for all of you and wish you all the very best!

As for names....I have a few ideas

1. Mo(Mo$)
2. c-note
3. Regis Nudd
4. Jarrett
5. Penguin Nudd(a girl, of course)
6. M&M
7. any name starting with the letter "j" so you have a lil'g and a lil' j
8. Oliver "Soft Red" Nudd
9. Provino
10. Timco

LaCour said...

Congratulations!!!

Andrew votes for a nice German name, such as Hildegard, Lars or DIETER. LOL

:)

Rachel & Andrew

MsBunn.com said...

I've always liked Micah or Aidan, but then my friends had to go get pregnant before me and take "my" names. Boo! For girls, Hayden? I like that for a boy, too. But, then it's too closely sounding to Graycen and big sister may not be too happy with the similarity. I'm a big sister and my mom nicknamed me "Bunn" then my sister "Junn." Yeah, I know the pain. :( Madison is alwys cute. Yes, "Splash" is one of my all-time favorite movies. haha.

MsBunn.com said...

Oh, I forgot Mehki or Athen (ay-then), which I think is appropriate since you photographed in Greece before, right? Am did I totally just make that up? haha!

Beth said...

Congratulations!!! Very exciting news! No help on the names though. We couldn't come up with anything better than Mario and Princess for our 2 new kittens LOL

Brittany said...

Congrats! Your announcement has totally made my week!

Jim said...

Ha! I knew you were pregnant before you did! lol

Girl: Hervia
Boy: James

Alice + Eric said...

That's awesome news, congrats you guys! How about Alice for a girl and Eric for a boy :D

How was the dinner and movie? Hope you had fun!

the mombergs said...

yay yay YAY!! this is awesome news, and you had the best way to announce it. we'll be thinking of you over the next months to come! i'll have to brainstorm some names... hmmmm....

Rich Smith said...

If it's a boy, don't feel obligated to name him after me. It would be flattering but really, there's no pressure.

Congrats, Joy! We're so excited for you guys!

Amber said...

Congratulations!!! What happy news!

Alice Park Photography said...

CONGRATULATIONS! What an adorable announcement by Graycen! I have been compiling a list of favorite client baby names and will send to you soon!

Congrats again!! SO completely thrilled for you all!

Jen said...

Congrats!!! And what a great anniversary 'present'! The kind that keeps on giving! lol.

My votes for names? Blair, Brynn or Bronwyn for a girl..

For a boy? Harrison or Daniel.

Best wishes!!!

baby Helena's mom said...

congrats garrett, joy and graycen! how exciting! like amanda said, that's my due date also! crazy...can't wait to find out what you're having and what name you're picking. hope you're feeling well!

Tim Co. said...

I vote for sticky's number 10! You could name the baby gaucita, fajita or iPhonia? Was that on your floppy disk list LOL? "Hey iPhonia Nudd come here"! Floppy disks LOL?

wow congrats! my white father and his wife are having another child!! WOOOPIE! amaaaaazzing graaaaacceee !

I'm sure any name u come up with will be stellar and the new baby will be just as perfect as can be. Looking forward to seeing all 4 of you soon!! They say early exposure to Tim Co. is one of the best things you can do for your child's long term development... No really there have been studies!

Mike Warren said...

Congratulations! Thats awesome guys!!!

Erin Cady said...

YAY!! Congratulations guys! Graycen is just the cutest, and her announcement is just too cute!

hmmm, names...let's see....

Someone mentioned Brynn, which is my best friends name and very very fun. I've always liked Alena for a girl. And for a boy? My friends have a son named Stenar, which I always thought was original and cute.

Take care of yourselves and congrats on all the great news! Happy Anniversary as well!

Nina said...

Thank you so much for all the warm fuzzy comments! We are so excited, its about time right? :)

We are loving all the name suggestions, keep them coming.

And to all fellow pregnant friends, we need to start a support group!

love everyone!!

Michelle Huber said...

How exciting!!! Congratulations Joy & family! Graycen's video reminds me SO much of my daughter when she was that age. Her name is Athena, which in my opinion, is a great name for a girl. How wonderful-congratulations again! I missed you last night in Minneapolis! Maybe at Elevate?

Michelle Huber said...

I've got the perfect name: Grabel

Heidi said...

My daughter's name is Havalah Sophia. She is a princess, and I know the name isn't common but everytime I say it and a new person hears it...I think it just sounds regal. It is pronounced Ha-vuh-lah. (from Fiddler on the roof, and in the bible (Gen. 2:11 it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold.)
Best wishes!

Amy said...

Congrats! Can't wait to visit in September!

Amy DeYoung said...

Yea!!! Congratulations :) And the due date is on the best day ever - MY birthday ;) I'm so so happy for you three..soon to be four!
