A Rose by Any Other Name...

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." - Shakespeare

My point: he's still the cutest baby ever made, even if we did decide to change his name.

Greg and I were both struggling with calling our new little son the right name. When someone asked Greg our son's name, it took him about 5-10 seconds to remember. And we have both called him Gavin (my nephew's name). Hailey kept calling him Noah. The name Jonah just didn't fit. Greg and I threw around a few names on Thursday and prayed about it a whole bunch. We didn't come up with anything until Friday afternoon when Greg came home from work and said, "Look at those eyes and tell me he's not a CHUCK." I must admit that at first I was not too excited about the name even though the spirit told me it was right. It's growing on me and I'm pleased to announce the NEW name of our 6th child: Chuck Jonah Barton.

Here are some random pictures from the past 10 days. Unfortunately for him he's number 6 so there will never be as many pictures as there were with the first. Good thing he's a boy because he won't care as much.




Too bad we didn't win. :O(
We're not using a pacifer so Greg has agreed to be the substitute.

Um...what to say... You said all along that I could call him Joe, and since it's still a part of his name I'm saying I'm sticking to that prior authorization. :)

He is adorable! That picture with he and Greg sleeping is just too cute! Does that little blue outfit look familiar? Oooh, such memories!
Two chucks?? One isn't enough huh? Poor little guy;)

I am SO glad I didnt start your pillow this weekend! I thought a week after birth would be safe, but I GUESS NOT! He is too cute. Are you sure this time before I start?

Yup...we're sure. I almost called you to see if you'd started it, but we hadn't told anyone yet and I knew you were up north with my family. :O)

And I know Jonah is a GREAT name - that's why I picked it! But it's just not right - he's a CHUCK through and through. You just wait...he'll grow into it and you won't be able to see him as anything else.

I totally get the name thing. We had that issue with Harrison. we knew it was supposed to be his name but he didn't feel like a Harrison until he was over 6 months old. Now he could be nothing else. Plus that is the joy of being the parent you get to choose. Such a cute baby.
