Thanks for the 'mention'! Technically, there are only 3 first name choices, 2 starting with J, but there are a total of 5 names we're considering.
Please go weigh in everyone - we're looking for lots of opinions! Right now it's pretty split - hubby also has a poll going with a decent amount of votes. I need more comments so I can contribute my share! Thanks!
