View of his belly and the bottom of his face (mouth, nose and cheek). I think he looks like Jack....

And after much deliberation and pondering over names, I think we have finally settled on a name for Baby Butler....
Daniel Dawson Butler
We both wanted a name that was meaningful. Daniel is kind of a funny story. Michael's dad was suppose to be named Steven Daniel Butler. For some reason, on his birth certificate he was named Steve Butler. Not Steven, but Steve and the Daniel was totally omitted. So the Daniel is for the long lost name Steve never got. I also love the story of Daniel. Daniel stayed true to God and through his faithfulness God rewarded him. Isn't that every parents prayer? That their children will learn to know Jesus and accept Him as their personal Savior and that they will always remain faithful?
Dawson was my mother's maiden name. This name has a very special place in my heart because my mom's dad, James Hoyt Dawson, died when she was only 8 years old. His naval helicopter crashed in the Atlantic Ocean near Virginia. My heart has often ached for my Mamaw and Mom's loss. I can't even imagine. So, I am honored to have our baby named after the grandfather I never knew.
We're not sure what we will call the baby....Daniel or Dan. I guess we'll wait and see what fits him.

Jack is almost 18 months old now, and he is the funniest little boy! This age is hard for me, being 7 months pregnant. I am constantly running around after him and he is into EVERYTHING, including climbing! But, this age is also so much fun! His personality is coming out more and more everyday. He hasn't been a very big talker until now...now he can say almost anything you tell him! Boys are also very different from little girls, which I am finding out more and more each day. He is like his sister in one way...they both love being the center of attention and making people laugh.

Happy Birthday, Georgie!!
Getting ready for the big party...
This year Georgia Anne wanted to have her birthday party at Pump It Up in Montgomery. The party allows for 25 children and she made her guest list herself. She also addressed every invitation! She was very proud and is really excited about her party Saturday! I'll post those pictures this weekend.
Birthday at school...
Michael, Jack and I surprised Georgie at school today for a little "birthday snack." Mrs. Robin had a little crown for Georgie to wear, the kids sang Happy Birthday. Mrs. Robin even went around the room and everyone shared why they loved Georgia Anne. It was sweet hearing what the kids had to say. She was so happy we came and we also discovered Jack may be a class clown. He acted very silly and made all the kids laugh!!
