Yesssss…. finally posting on time this week!
Narrowing down names when you don’t know the sex is the hardest thing ever. Plus, Erin is much more picky this time around than the last time. I’ve been putting together a list of names since Palmer was born and, I have to admit, the list has gotten a little out of control. So for the past couple weeks, I have been trying to narrow down the list to come up with some potentials for each name. We knew going into our anatomy scan our boy name and girl name so walking out, we were calling the little baby in my belly Palmer.
This time is not as easy. Maybe it’s because this will most likely be our last baby so my list of dream baby names will be retired after this point. Every time Erin vetoes a name, it bums me out because it’s just a name that I love that will never be used. I mean it’s okay because obviously the baby can’t have 30 middle names but it’s still.
So basically, thanks to Erin’s hatred of all the names I put on the list… we’ve narrowed it down to 3 boy names and 7 girl names. Hopefully we can agree on something… or else we will end up calling this one You-Nique or something.
