Oh, Boy.

Yup. I tried accusing the ultrasound tech of getting her thumb in the picture, but no dice. Another boy.
With cute little tootsies!

And legs that I've just started feeling. In fact, the last time S. sat on my lap, he tried to kick her off. And so it begins.

He looks sweet and innocent, though, doesn't he?

Such a serious expression.

Maybe this will be my calm, malleable child.

Hey, I have five months to go - let me dream a bit!

Before reality sets in.
And so, the great name search begins. (We HAD a girl's name ready.) Suggestions??? I like simple, solid names for boys. Nothing that starts with C, F, L, M, or S, because that would make the blog too confusing. Priorities, you know.


  1. Woohoo! Okay

    Nothing with C, F, L, M or S

    Orlando David

    Parker Essex

    William Edgar

    Raymond Henry

    Mix and match or use none at all. All are in my ancestry. None worked with the combination of the last name and looks of the kids...aside from William and not with Edgar.

    Happy for you all!


  2. My top boy names start with L and S. Hmm, Ian was our runner up if we ever had a boy.

  3. Names are difficult if you work with kids--too many associations. If we had another boy, I liked the name Quinn. Never taught one, never knew one. I'm sure you'll pick the perfect name for your kiddo!

  4. Some of those have made the list of possibilities. Robin, that's exactly it! Between teaching and the library, there are no neutral names:)

  5. I had 6 boy names because in my youth (and stupidity) I felt I wanted 6 boys. I used 3 of them and you took my 4th.
    But I should also add that "Max" seems like it would be the perfect addition to your family seeing that you often make your house seem like it is "where the wild things are!"

  6. Seriously laughing out loud at the Max idea! Four of those are already on our list. Great minds think alike:) S. is still torn between "Hello Kitty" and "Minion".
