BLUE!!!




We found out baby #2's gender on Liam's birthday. So, we decided to have a little fun with it and make it a surprise for EVERYONE, including Nick and I! So when we got our ultrasound we came prepared with two envelopes with a toy for Liam inside each. One with a pink toy and one with a blue toy. That morning Liam and I decorated one of the envelopes and had it all ready to take with us. After the ultrasound we had the tech. place the correct toy in the decorated envelope along with the ultrasound picture and seal it up for Liam to open up that night with the family. Oh, and yes, the other toy was placed in the other envelope and also sealed so there was no peaking : )! Before the ultrasound, I thought I would be crazy waiting for 6:00 to get there, but actually after the ultrasound was finished and we knew everything looked healthy with the baby, the gender was really secondary. So, finally after the family arrived Liam opened his special present and revealed that indeed baby #2 is going to be a BOY!! There were defiantly a lot of surprised faces, but we are all thrilled to have another sweet little boy to love! And, we are also excited to let everyone know that baby boy #2 will be named...... Hudson John Kirk. I just love his name, and am excited we will be able to honor Nick's dad by using his name as well. Very special.

I am thrilled that you are using Johnny's name for this next baby. Guess my girls and I are the only ones that still say Johnny. Hard to break habits. Kellie has a Hudson - Titus Hudson - after Hudson Taylor. We had a friend who had two girls that were big and then she had two boys. They lived around the corner and I loved watching them play together. Kellie's boys are fun to watch and when Clayton and Matthew and Malachi join in it is really cute. Won't be long before Myles is in the middle too. Poor Lily Kate. Nothing but boys ahead of her except for Mariah. There is a big age difference there. You have some fun times ahead. Love you - Aunt Judy
