Finding Names

Sent: Thursday, August 10, 2006 6:24 PM

Okay, so I am finding it hard to believe we are getting closer to the big DAY of our baby. Still we don't know if it is a boy or girl... and Robert isn't wanting to hardly talk about names till we find out. I on the other hand, am just making lists and losing them and having to go back and make new ones. (lists of baby names that is)

I told Robert that we need to have some IDEAS or some names in mind so that when the baby is born we can decide if we haven't already. So today, I go to the library and get a Name Book for Babies. I write down all the names that I like, and then quiz Robert on them.

He shot down names like Olivia, Mallory, Charlotte, Bernice, Annalise, Madeline, and Tawny. Not to mention Allie, Kimberly, Tiffany, Allison, and Whitney for girls.

He also shot down Walker for a boy, which I wasn't crazy about but Emily LOVED! And also Shannon for a boy was another one Emily LOVED and Rob was like.... UH NOOOOO!!! Along with Alonzo which was kind of cool... Em had a boy in her class last year with the name Alonzo.

So as of right now, we have 13 girl names to sift through and 24 boy names.... If it is a girl, it will be easier to pick a name out of the 13 instead of out of the 24 for a boy.

Anyway, that is our progress at this point. I hope to have a few names picked out before the actual arrival of this baby. But who knows... like Rob said you don't have to name them right when they come out. (I would just like to be that prepared I guess!)

Hope all is going well with each of you. Lorri I can't wait to hear all about your trip!!!
