The Name Game

Hubb's is determined to pick a name for our baby girl pronto. I don't know what his deal his, something about liking everything figured out. I don't know. I just can't see myself picking a name right now. We have about 3 we like. I have a couple more but he has nixed those. One day I feel like it could be one name and then the next day it could be the next. I am just not ready to lay claim on a name. There is no reason to rush it. This girl will have this name for the rest of her life.

Anyhoo, my mother in law came over a couple of weekends ago and berated me for about an hour with names she liked, like she was naming our baby or something. All of her suggestions SUCKED. I mean, sucked badly. Like they were popular when she was born and that was it. She literally was not fazed by me shooting down each name... even if I had to say "no that name reminds me of a hussy". NOT EVEN FAZED. I kept shooting the hubb's panicked looks like he better save me before I sat on her or something. He was completely oblivious, or just like me getting tortured. I never realized how freaking annoying it is to get suggestions on names. Like it is a topic we have rarely researched or thought about. We will be doing the naming people, keep your comments to yourself. Just trust us we are not going to name her Apple or something and be happy with what we tell you when the time comes. Until then, ZIP IT.

It is obvious that the incident with the M.I.L is still sitting with me. Argh.

We had Porgie's name picked out before I even got pregnant, yet everyone was always suggesting new names. My cousin even told me that she disliked our name choice. I thought it was incredibly rude.

By the way, my baby's real name isn't Porgie.

Lol Christy.

Missy M, I really think you should name your unborn daughter Bertha Jane. Because wouldn't that just be the sweetest ever? And if you don't obey my demand (disguised as advice), I will pout for the rest of my life!!!!!

Unsolicited advice is one of the most annoying things about being pregnant.

Well, I got, "You named your kid after a DOG?!!" Mind you, it was a dog that I had had for almost 8 years, was my first "baby" and I had just had put to sleep a month before I found out I was pregnant. I was still very devastated and I thought the best way to honor my first "baby" was to name my first daughter after her. I just spelled them differently. So tell everyone else to EFF OFF!! Name your baby what you want.

this is one of my biggest pet peeves! Everyone has an opinion about every single name in the world, from they knew someone who was a bitch with that name to their 3rd cousin who was fat and ugly.... thing is though...

YOu tell everyone your "going" to name her Sophia before she is born and people say, oh that name is silly people will just call her Sophie anyway... blah blah blha...

YOU tell them you named her Sophia on the day she was born and all you will hear is... OOOHHHH what a pretty name, she looks like a Sophia, I just love that name...blah blah blah....

So don't tell anyone crap and just announce it the day she is born.

Well that is just annoying. The only think that matters is that you and the hubby like it. And whatever you guys pick will be just right for your baby. Don't let others get to you.
