Ok, before I had Tucker I told myself that I wouldn’t always make posts about him. That hasn’t happened at all. Oh well.
I’m kind of a dork (like my sister Faith) and I’ve always loved finding similarities or coincidences in life. For example, I always notice when people are wearing the same color. Like at work sometimes, I’d notice that 5 people were wearing green, so, I’d be like, “It’s green day!” And people always gave me looks like, “Who cares?” My sis always notices cool coincidences with dates and stuff.
Anyway, a recent coincidence I’ve noticed is in Tucker’s name. A number of years ago, some family friends named their little boy Hudson and I thought that was so cute, so, I put it on my list of top favorite boy names. Shortly after we found out we were prego, I really liked Hudson as a middle name for Tucker, if we had a boy. Shortly after this, I talked to my bf from high school and she freaked out when I told her that because Hudson was the name she and her hubby had chosen for their baby boy due a couple months before Tucker. This was strange because we were both saying how Hudson was not a common first name.
In December or so, one of my friend’s sister-in-laws had a little boy and named him Hudson.
Soon after, a friend from college had a little boy and named him Hudson.
A friend from high school just had a little boy and also named him Hudson.
Josh wasn’t sold on Hudson b/c it didn’t have a sentimental meaning to it. So, he came up with Tucker Isaiah.
A family from the church I grew up in just had a little boy and named him Hudson Isaiah (or Isaiah Hudson, I can’t remember)
My friend’s older sister has a little boy and his name is Isaiah Hudson (their last name is Hudson)
And my good friend Meagan Tucker’s sister did the same thing I did a few years back. 3 girls, no boys, wanted the name Tucker to live on, so, she named her little boy Tucker. Her married name just happens to be Hudson, so, his name is Tucker Hudson.
Isn’t that strange??? All those similarities. I guess he was just destined to be named what he’s named. Oh, and we already knew we were going to name him Tucker if he was a boy and he just so happened to be born 4 days after his due date, 2 hours into March 11th which happens to be my dad, Steve Tucker’s birthday.
Wow. That was a long post and anyone who doesn’t think stuff like this is cool must think I’m really dumb. Sorry! Guess that’s what blogs are for. Write weird stuff and hope someone reads it. =)
