Baby G Has A Name!

Ryan and I had a great day today, beginning with a gorgeous hike in the Smokies.  We've been talking about what to name our son for a while now, and decided today was the perfect day to make it official.  His name is...

Jackson David to be exact...but the shadows were moving too fast to write out the whole thing!!

We love the name Jackson David for lots of reasons, but mainly because Jackson, other than meaning "Son of Jack," also means "Gracious Gift of God."  When we found out we were pregnant, one of the first things we said was how gracious God was to allow us to be able to get pregnant with one of His precious children.  David means "Beloved" and King David was a man after God's own of our prayers for him.  And on a more superficial note, we just think Jackson Gray is a good, strong name.  :)

Here are a few more pics from our hike...

It was 85 degrees today, but Mt. LaConte still has snow on top! We are loving that this is our backyard!!
