what's in a name?!?

well, after a few months of being kinda unsure, but still pretty firm... buttercup is now nameless.  :(  i know, you're all shocked and disappointed... but, well, the good thing is: she has always been nameless to you all!!! 
i guess we're back at square 1.  so, here's to another round of
THEBABEWITHNONAME  here's a post i did around this time for starboy... perhaps you'll remember.  perhaps you'll enjoy. 

ps.  i'm slowly in the process of transferring all my old blogs from myoldspace to this one... it's taking a while... but it'll get done.  this (above link) is an oldie.

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

We went into the recovery room with 0 names for Annie. We spent 2 days with our babewithnoname before we just had to pick or else they weren't going to come by with the birth certificate registration form thingy again. Okay, we didn't cut it that close, but still. And Annie wasn't even a name that we considered before. But sometimes when you know, you just know. I'm positive that when you guys know, you'll just know and it will be perfect!

those would be names we'd avoid for sure.

I read this after I had posted about Ari's name. Good luck!! Names are hard and we seriously never know until the week before they are born it seems. This was a first and I am happy it is taken care of. You will know when it is right and you might need to wait until you see her. We have done that with both kids. We just had a list and when they were born it was what worked. Girl's names that have always been on the list were my grandma's names so I don't think you really want those:) LOL Good luck!!

it's cool... we knew binkins', jones', and boo's before they came out. long before they came out. so, i'm not worried like i was with starboy.
we have a few to think from, so that actually makes it better than with starboy!
