Ok, final countdown and we Houston, we have a problem. We have had 9 months….seriously, at the rate I’m going we will have 10 months….but we do not yet have a name. There have been many times over the last few months when we think we had a name, we start calling him by that name, we ask him if that is his name and wait for a sign. So for the last few weeks, we have been calling him a certain name…then I made the mistake of telling that name to one of my girlfriends and BAM….she used it in a sentence and shortened the name and all of a sudden, I HATED IT!
So, now we are back to square one. We have the approved lists of names, some of which I like, some of which I cannot see coming out of my mouth on a daily basis. My neighbors think I’m crazy because I run around my house yelling random names just to see how it sounds coming out of my mouth…”<> Roach, clean your room” or “<> Roach, get off the shed!” Unfortunately, nothing seems to be sticking.
I’m at a loss and am opening it up to suggestions, discussions and advice because it is starting to keep me up at night. A name means so much, a name is your first impression, a name is the first decision outside of the womb that I will impart on my child. If I cannot make a decision over something like this, how am I ever going to make a decision on who he will marry or where he will go to college?
