I am down to only 30 days left of this pregnancy. For those who have not heard, I am having a planned c-section on June 29th at 10:30 am. A moment of silence for a successful birth at that time would be appreciated!
We have been having an unusually difficult time naming this baby. The other boys, of course, are A names. You know them as Big and Little. My first thought was to continue on with the A and this one would be Baby A for a time. Then turn into Little and Little into Middle. But then I thought, I don’t want Little to be Middle – that just sets a tone already. The middle child. Ugh. And then Hubby and I could not agree on another A name anyways. He was interested in things like Archer or Asher. Even Argus. Ummm…not so much. I like Anderson. We already have Anthony, Andrew and a few more in the family. I don’t want to duplicate.
We even played a game at my shower so everyone could help think of names with me. This is what we got:
Archer – again!
Bradley – LOVE Bradley Cooper but there was this icky boy in highschool named Bradley. Nope.
Christopher – have it in the family
Doug – HA!
Edward - I am not naming the baby any Twilight characters whether I love the books and movies or not
Oscar – the name of my dear friend’s dead cat. I don’t think so
Ralph – something we also call vomit? No
Samuel – LOVE this but there is a Samantha in the family only a little older than this baby
We went around one more time just to see. It got a little crazy:
Joshua – in the family
Kevin – in the family
Norman – Bates!
Oliver – This was actually in the list hubby and I agreed on!
Parker – mean kid in Big A’s class
Stanley – Studdering Stanley – Sixth Sense
Train – ?
Uranus – no
Xray – no
Yemen – no
Zylaphone – spelled specifically this way so it was a Z name. Nice.
So, we are still not 100% sure what the poor baby’s name is going to be. One thing I can tell you is that this kid gets cases of the hiccups at least 3 times a day. So, even if his real name is different, I am going to call him Hiccup.
