3 1/2 Weeks...

I had a nice visit with my Doc this morning and we scheduled the arrival of Baby No Name for November 3rd. Hello! I can't believe I know a date. Of course, she could come sooner. But hopefully we will make it to that day. I am a bit of a cheater, I know. I have to schedule everything. It makes life easier. With every child I think, this time I won't be induced and I will just let it happen. But then as it gets closer it just makes so much sense for everyone involved to have it totally planned. My Doc reassured me that it is not cheating - in fact, God made pitocin (sp?) possible so that we could plan these things out. Who knows but I will take that reasoning for now.

The crib (Thanks Gavin) and car seat are ready (Thanks Brit). Some clothes are washed. But still no name.... I need something brilliant. I feel like it is on the tip of my tongue but I just don't know what it is. Do you know? If it hits you, let me know.

whaddya mean 3 1/2 weeks?? I can't believe you are due that soon, woman! How exciting. She will be a beauty- no doubts.

How about Katherine?? A good solid, sexy, family name...Ha haa.. Jes kidding--

I don't know- what's hot for girls these days?? Emma, Ava, Ella, Emmie, Avery, Addy..??

I'm all snuffed up on boys names, so my girls names list is weak. Sorry... Good luck the next few weeks-- can't wait to hear about it.

you're in our prayers.

I left you some lovin' on my blog to honor you for your strength in your crazy life. You can check it out when you wish. As for names? I vote for Hayden.

Annie, Chris, & Ryan said...

Kristine said...

Asha-- (ahh-sha)Indian origin, means hope.

Faithe-- English origin

Fayth--English origin

Or you could go with Xel-Ha.....

Dang I am going to be visiting my sister in North Carolina when you have your baby. I wanted to be here to help with you kids. I am back on the 6th. Your original due date was the 10th and that is why I was coming back on the 6th. I will make sure you have any help that you need though.

Annie P said...

My due date is the 6th. So it is a 3 days early. All the others were induced a full week early.

We'll consider Xel-Ha. That could be a fun one.

I think No Name has a nice ring to it...why would you change the name this late in the game? No suggestions from me...since we have all boys, I have never even toyed with girl names. Well...good luck with everything! We are so excited for you!

Jennifer said...

London anyone? I stick with my original pick.

Jen Love said...

I am so excited to see you beautiful little girl. I have no names to help, I just always end up with boy. I did have a cute one picked out for banks, but he ended up being "Banks" and now I can't remember the cute girl name. It was an original on too! If I can dig it up, I will let you know. Please let me help with your kids.

Here is a fun link Jenna sent me when we were looking for baby names. . . http://www.babynamewizard.com/voyager

Or try a few on the Sarah Palin name generator at http://politsk.blogspot.com/2008/09/sarah_13.html. . . it came up with "Tangle Jig Palin" when I typed in Annie & Kenyon. That's a serious contender. . .

Wow, this pregnancy has flown by! Oh, wait, I am not the one carrying the baby and doing all the work. I am happy for you, though! Sam's birthday is on the 1st of November. My sister is a scheduler and it seems to work for her. Don't worry, it is not cheating.

I've already made my suggestions, not only for this baby but for the others. Always rejected. What's wrong with Olympia Gold (Elise) or Gladiola Rose (Gladi for short)? But I'll go along with Jen--London Derriere (or Londonderry Air)--that can either have an athletic punch to it--as in "Air" or a whatever Derriere implies. Love always, Mom
