    Wow, I just learned one to avoid. A FB friend just posted re one of the big ones that’s held near us that it was super crowded and during the “Kindergarten Hunt,” her 5y/o got knocked down, eggs were taken from her, and a bracelet she was wearing from home all got taken during the event. :/

    I really like it. I know it’s super popular but I don’t know that many little Jacobs/Jakes IRL.

    Cool! Yay for getting past the first tri! :) Are you starting to feel better?

    Lots of interesting names!
    I like Ilya and Ileana.
    I’m not sure how I feel about Annelle.

    I recently came across a Grisha. I’m guessing it’s Russian?

    LOL, I know what you mean!

    And it seemed to work, on Alex at least. He told me a few minutes later, “I’m cleaning up and making good habits so when I’m grown up I can live in a beautiful, clean house!”

    Mmm, home-made mac and cheese IS good stuff. :)

    I also might do chicken chili with rice, shredded cheese and some tortilla chips thrown in for good measure, and maybe a salad. Not sure if that’s a little too spicy for the mom though (I make it with cumin, black pepper and a wee bit of chili powder).

    Thanks for the opinions. :)
    I have a beloved great-aunt who was named Clara (pronounced clair-uh) and I like the idea of naming a DD after her. I might do Clara or Claire as an MN instead but I do love Clara and would really consider it if I could get DH on board. I just wasn’t sure about the LN thing. Ours ends with an “air-ose” (soft “s”) sound instead of air-as like Banderas.

    LOL, maybe you have. :)

    I thought about lasagna but that tends to be what everyone takes. ;) (Since she had a C-section and was in the hospital longer and he was in the NICU for a bit, they’ve got about a month’s worth of meals lined up, 3x/wk. I might do it anyway though. ;) She said their other 2 meals for this week cancelled so bring whatever. :(

    Me! Heading out in about 5 minutes. I’ve been sick the past few days so I didn’t go on Wednesday (my usual grocery shopping day).

    I love Jack and Abigail and think they go great with Harrison! I agree with TheWishingStar on what to avoid; I think you have tons of options! I would lean toward something classic but not super popular. I especially like the idea of Oliver, Benjamin, Eleanor, Polly or Caroline.

    I really wish DH liked Cora.
    Maybe as a MN.

    Karl brings Karl Marx to mind for me right away; I like Carl better. I like Carlos even better.
    I think Carl is OK. I don’t have strong feelings on it either way. It could definitely work as a middle name. Carlton could work too.

    Mimosas sound good to me! :)

    OK, thanks! :)

    And yeah, I was thinking cora-line too but curious if that’s what other people would guess when looking at it.

    hgeorge, no, my boys were born in January. The “twosapphires” is after the two sapphires in my original engagement ring (pictured in my avatar), and in a gift I got from a very dear friend, and I do now have two little sapphire-eyed boys. :)

    Haha yes, narrowing down can be the hard part. :)
    I was just about to ask how far along you are now and then saw you get to find out the sex on May 21. So exciting! So are you … 14-16w now?

    I also love Marian, which also has a vintagey feel to me. (Reminds me of The Music Man. :) )
