Well....we get to find out tomorrow afternoon if baby #3 will be a boy or a girl.
I don't think I've actually told too many people that we are expecting a baby.
So if you didn't know....SURPRISE!
So help us out with some ideas for names.
Did you know that Joey has named both of our children?
He has vetoed every single name I've ever come up with.
Here are some examples:
Josephine...How cute is that when you consider that her dad is Joseph and we would call her Josie for short. Nope. He hates it.
Keely...(I don't know how I would spell it) My grandma's maiden name was Keele and I think it is so cute. He didn't really veto that one. But with two Kelly's already in the family I thought it might be confusing.
I LOVED the name Minnie a few weeks ago. Until I told Joey. He didn't think that a 6 foot girl named Minnie would be a nice thing to do to your child.
I've never had too many clever ideas about boy names, but I did veto him when he wanted Max to be short for Maxamillion.
It really comes down to this... Joey has good taste and I don't.
And it's true of every aspect of our lives.
He decorates the house.
He tries to dress me....but I still manage to look like a bag lady most of the time.
He takes the kids school clothes shopping.
And he names the kids.
So this is what we have so far.
Joey likes Johnny for a boy... or for a girl, I don't think he cares which.
I suggested Olive for a girl.
Joey doesn't love it.
I told Joey's aunt Lori my idea the other night and as the words were coming out of my mouth I instantly knew it was a dog's name. Maybe just because when you talk to Lori you are always thinking of dogs, because you know she is.
She hated it too.
(PS...it is Lori's bday today. I'm not sure how old she is, but I just turned 28 and I wish I looked like her. She NEVER updates her blog, but go wish her a happy birthday anyway. We LOVE her.)
So tell me your best ideas for names.
We like old fashioned names.
We also like names that are short for something.
Tell me what you think of Olive...and Johnny.
What could Olive be short for, haha?
Tell me your children's names.
I WILL steal them....but does it really matter?
