Baby Names

Since sharing our excitement with the world that we are expecting in Oct. we have come across the same questions : Will you find out the sex of the baby? And have you thought of any names yet and what are they? I made the mistake of sharing some of ideas and became very hurt and defensive. Most people want to tell you what they like and dislike. They want to share they stories of who it reminds them of and names they really like. That alone has turned me off to a couple names. Plus the fact is say some tells you how weird a name is and then you go ahead with it in the back of your mind you know how the person really feels. I feel that is a decision that the parents make together with out any one else influence. Not our parents, siblings, friends or co-workers. Not sure why people can not simply say " wow what ever you name you decided sounds amazing"

Well my husband and I have decided to keep it a secret until the baby is born so when people ask and press I simply replay " it will be a surprise " .


  1. I don't blame you for this at all. People tend to not think before they speak. I am so happy for you. Hope you are feeling well.

  2. Just saw you followed me on the Screamin' Deal - fun, thanksthanksthanks! :)

    Congrats on the bebe! And smart choice to keep your response to "it's a surprise" - sooo much better that way. My mommy blog (it's private so my fam doesn't have to read about all the naughty details of my life, lol) is, if you're ever bored. I pretty much blogged my way through conception and pregnancy :)
