Kendra, how close do you live to your nephew who’s in the hospital? Are they local?
Alex’s answer: “I can’t tell you.”
Will: “My … nothing. My ‘nothing’ is my teddy.”
I think Grant Everett would work well.
I love Caroline Hope!
I like Caroline Rose and Everett Charles! I’m not big on Graham just because it always makes me think of graham crackers, or the nickname for grandma/grandpa (“Gram”) but for a MN it’s not that bad.
Some of the big ones right now are DH’s successful heart surgery and that his advanced CAD was caught before anything terrible happened; for our new home and neighborhood, and of course for my boys, and also for the amazing friends we have.
Any updates? Hope they can be home before Thanksgiving! Being in the hospital over a holiday just sucks!
I thought about it, but since I signed up for a 5K on Thanksgiving morning, I don’t want to leave DH alone with the kids two days in a row during the holiday weekend. I’ll probably shop online though!
Oh yeah, I don’t really agree with the “her last name will change anyway” argument for the reasons you mentioned. I think Donovan nn Van is a nice option.
From your boys list, I love Simon, Oscar, and Calvin.
I like Rowan, Grant, Malcolm and Truman.
I think Simon Grant would be a strong combo, or Calvin Grant.
From your girls list, I love Eleanor and Coralie.
I like Margaret/Margo.
Juniper and Harriet I like as middle names.
Some girl combo ideas would be Eleanor Margaret, Eleanor Virginia, Margaret Coralie or Margot Juniper.
1. How do you pronounce Cara? CARE-ah
2. Do you prefer it as a nn, or as the full name? Mmm, I think as the full name. I’d also like it as a nn for Caroline though.
3. Do you think Cara works well on my list? To me it seems a little out of place, since it seems more modern/trendy than a lot of the names on your list which are more timeless/classic. But I think it could work.
4. Any combo ideas for whichever form you like best? I like Cara Felicity.
Haha. Well if DH wants anything special I’ll refer him to this thread and tell him it’s just not done.
But the savory breakfast casserole sounds veeery tasty. I think I’ll just find a recipe for an easy one and go with that.
I do like Elora Jayne!
Ooh, I like Azaria!
Glad you took him in! Hope his EI clears up fast!
Yikes, sorry about the work stress on top of it! Hope you get good news on both fronts!
By the way, Hope, I like your avatar.
I’m not TTC yet but I am charting and hoping we will start TTC in a few months. DH and I really need to discuss that and decide for sure one way or another but in the meantime, charting is helping me figure out what’s going on with my body to hopefully help our chances when we do start TTC.
Best of luck to you this cycle!
Oh wow, congratulations!
If you have a positive pregnancy test, I would call your OB now and see how soon they want to get you in. I know at my practice, they’ll try to schedule your first appointment for when you’re about 7-8 weeks. Keep us posted!
