Well, my husband and I have been talking baby names for a while since our baby is due in a few months.  It’s funny how well we get a long but we have such a hard time finding a baby name we both like.  We had one that we compromised on and then it just didn’t seem right.  So, after talking about it for about two hours last night, we came up with another name.  My husband has a rule about not telling anyone what the name was until after the baby is born.  He finds a joke name usually that he tells everyone.  So, we’ll see how long this names lasts!


I’ve started another spiritual challenge at GDS.  The challenge is to scrap a layout about the possibilities in your life.  I’m featuring my Possibilities Page Kit and my Scrap it Fast Template Set #01 along with some great bonuses.  Everyone who participates will get the following template:

That is so funny about the silly name until the baby is born. I did that too and named my daughter Lafawnduh Moon Unit until she was born. I actually didn't have a name until she was born and got tired of people bugging me about her name. So one day that is what i came up with. Good luck choosing your baby's name.

I hadn't really realized how much effort the name can take until my sister-in-law was stumped for months, the right name just seems to strike us within a couple of days of serious thought (usually much different than what we thought it would be but still just right.) We told everybody that our last one would be Optimus Prime until she was born (we didn't know if she was a boy or a girl...) It's a great time to play around with people, that and it can deflect from some of the other issues people might take with our choice of birth options...

I have a 3.5 month old son and my husband and iI had similar naming issues. It had been so easy with my daughters, but a boy? Nothing sounded right. It took a long time to come to a concensus, but we now have Anthony Dominic, who goes by Dominic. (My DH is also Anthony) Best of luck w/ your pregnancy and naming your baby! :)
PS. thanks for your great templates!

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!

  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.

  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
