since we found out that we’re having a girl the name window has opened up again.
i thought we’d chosen a name. chris was very specific (picky) about the name, two syllables and starting with a “M”. i went along with it. i had even given him the name he liked most and i was given the kind of “out there” middle name that i liked most.
now that we know for sure, HE was the one to start back into looking at other names.
he likes old fashioned names. i do too. we have a few that we kind of agree on and a lot that we don’t. so imagine my surprise on friday night when he came home and told me as long as we go back to the original plan of using our mother’s names as the middle names, i get to name the baby, no questions asked. no debating. all my choice.
he told me that i have gone through all the pressure, stress, pain, feeling terrible and on top of all that i have to give birth, so it makes sense that i would get to name the baby what i like.
the plan is to have several names ready and when the baby arrives and i’ll see which one stands out for her.
so looks like some of those names i thought i’d NEVER GET IN A MILLION years are back up as potentials!
The list so far (in no particular order):
