Back to square one with baby names?
We were pretty much decided on Jackson but Brian and I have been talking. Jackson is a REALLY popular name. Every year it's climbing the ssa popular names chart. I know we are going to call him Jack, so why not name him that? Well, it's climbing the charts too..... I just don't want my little boy to have a lot of friends with his same name. Plus, I can't help but think of Micheal and Randy Jackson. Ugh.

Now, if Jackson were a name that I was set on and it were number 1, I would still name him that. It's not that the numbers are the only thing that matters, I just don't know if Jackson or Jack feels right.
