    I was at a children’s book store the other day and a little girl was having a “Frozen” themed party. When I got there, they were playing a game. An adult was dressed in a blue dress and had her hair braided like Queen Elsa. She had a “snowball” (small white ball) and had the kids sit in a circle with the birthday girl in the middle. The birthday girl closed her eyes and “Elsa” gave one of them the snowball. The girl had to guess who had the snowball, and then that person went in the middle. The kids were anywhere from 3-5 years old. The birthday girl had a tiara on.

    I was actually at the grocery store yesterday and I bought bottles with my name (Jennifer), my brother’s name (Jesse), and one that said Vic for my fiance, Victor. It was the closest they had even though he never goes by Vic. I wonder where they came up with the list of names. My other brother’s name (Vinny) doesn’t have a bottle. I knew there wouldn’t be one with my daughter’s name.

    I bought a Mexico soccer jersey type shirt for Noemi to give her daddy. I dropped my fiance off to go fishing today and Tuesday after work we will go out to eat. Its his first father’s day!

    We are doing well, thanks for asking. I’m just tired all the time. I have finally gotten Noemi to sleep in her bassinet at night, but she still wakes up to eat every 3-4 hours and sometimes she won’t go back to sleep. I can’t believe she will be a month old on Thursday!

    @twosapphires: What was the reason for people not liking Valerie and Susanna? I think both of those names are pretty.

    @kimiha: I have met a few kids named Damien and I never think of the boy from the Omen. It is a perfectly acceptable name.

    I only discussed the names I liked with my fiance, so I haven’t gotten any negative reactions from anyone about the names. Except for the fact that my family doesn’t like what we are giving my daughter for her middle name, which is Xochitl. My dad and 16 year old brother are especially against the name.

    Our church had a Mother’s Day breakfast yesterday so I went with my mom and grandma to that. After church, the youth passed out carnations to all the mothers. (I got one too!) I bought my mom a card and my brothers and I signed it. I also bought her a picture frame that says “Grandkids keep us young at heart”, but I haven’t given it to her yet. I think I might wait until my daughter is born so I have a picture to put in it, and give it to her on her birthday in June.

    It is also hard to buy presents for my mom because she has allergies so she doesn’t like flowers or anything scented (candles, soap, lotion) and she doesn’t wear jewelry.

    My mother-in-law lives in Mexico, so I can only tell her Happy Mother’s Day over the phone.

    The public schools in my town in Connecticut end June 17. My brother, who goes to a technical high school, doesn’t get out until June 23 because we had a lot of snow days.

    @Momkey: Thank you for informing everyone!

    My fiance is Mexican, so it is a holiday where he is from (the state of Puebla) and the whole state is closed down. No one works or goes to school, and the banks and everything are closed. I don’t know if that goes for the rest of Mexico, or just the state of Puebla. It is basically like the Patriot’s Day for Massachusetts remembering the battles that took place there. Has NOTHING to do with Independence Day, which is September 16th.

    We went to his sister’s house that day and ate steak tacos. My fiance grilled steaks outside.

    All of them are stupid. A lot of them are really messed up and should never be worn.

    I just had my baby shower April 26 and one of the most creative gifts I got was from one of the older ladies at church. She had bought a pack of diapers, and instead of wrapping paper, had taped $1 and $5 bills to one side of the package! It ended up being $44 of money and a 44 pack of diapers. Since that’s on the expensive side, it might be good for a close friend or family member.

    I also had a family friend who bought a wooden box and decorated it and then put a bunch of bath stuff inside it. There was shampoo, body wash, baby oil, diaper rash cream, and baby lotion. The box is a good way for me to keep all of her bath stuff together.

    @lcd1912: Thank you! I get so many compliments on the name, but people have a hard time pronouncing it because they have never heard it before. When I told my grandma the name, I said it was like No-Emmy.

    @lovenames: I think if people saw it written down, they would get it. Most people usually do. At my baby shower, I had two people who addressed their gifts to “Naomi”. The name was spelled out on the invitation! I will make sure I correct people who say Naomi instead of Noemi.

    I agree that I like Samuel best with the other names.

    TheWishingStar, Thanks for your advice. Thinking about it, I guess the problem is that Noemi has so many different pronunciations because it is used in multiple languages. It also has a lot of different spellings depending on the language it is being used in. The Spanish Bible has the spelling of Noemi, and it is also the spelling that makes the most sense. Also, I was planning on using Emi as a nickname, and I agree that it might help people with the pronunciation. I feel like people will give her a nickname anyways, so it might as well be one I choose.

    This is my first child, so its my first time going through the whole naming process. I’m just glad my fiance and I were able to agree on a name so quickly and did not have any arguments about it. Everyone who I tell her name to says how pretty it is. I guess it just takes time to pronounce it right.

    Thanks for all the responses. I think I just confused everyone with the way I wrote out the pronunciation. I didn’t mean for the second syllable to be stressed, but to show that No-eh-mi is different than No-ay-mi. I met a girl at one of the schools I worked in who had this name, but spelled Nohemy, and it was pronounced No-eh-mi. Noemi is the Spanish translation of Naomi, which is a name in the Bible. It means “beautiful”. I think it will get easier once people see her name written down and hear it being used.

    Phoenix, Thank you for sharing your experience! Her middle name is the Nahuatl (Aztec) word for flower, which is Xochitl. My fiance is Aztec, so his family can pronounce it, but my family is White, so they will have a hard time with it. I’m not sure the best way to spell out the pronunciation, but it is sort of like Sho-Chee-Cl. Altogether, her name means “beautiful flower”.

    Anabel, Sorry it’s my fault for putting emphasis on the second syllable. We do pronounce it with the last syllable emphasized.

    Kimiha, The name Noemi is used in a lot of languages because it’s from the Bible. I had an aunt named Naomi and I always liked her name, but Noemi sounds prettier and has a better Spanish pronunciation.

    TwoSapphires, My fiance wanted the middle name (Xochitl) as her first name, but I talked him out of that because I knew not many people in America would be pronouncing it right.
