This is my first time posting in this part of the forum . . . but I figured I should start hanging out in both Feb and March forums because my due date keeps fluctuating from Feb 27-March 1st.
We have a short list of names for each sex.
Ryan, Samuel, Dean, Tyler, and Finn. -- I am almost certain we will be going with Ryan for either a first or middle name. I really like Finn Ryan, but my husband says he doesn't think Finn even sounds like a name ;-/ Ryan was the name of my ex boyfriend who died in a car crash while I was in high school. He was my best friend so my husband knows how important the name is to me. We also try looking at the SS names list . . . but, last time we chose Liam which was not in the top 100 and now EVERYONE has named their kid Liam (which was exactly what I wanted to avoid) so whatever.
Ellenore (Elle or Ellie) Rose,
Rose after my DH's grandma and Mechelle after my mother. We are hoping for a girl this time and I feel in my bones that this is a girl, but I'm trying to be cautious. I was never really close with my mother (she would like to think that I was . . . but she was a young mother and never really spent the time taking care of me the way she should and I ended up living with my grandparents since the age of four.) I really want to have a connection with a daughter that I didn't have with my mom. She died five years ago at the age of 38 from a drug overdose . . . and my first day of my last period was on the five year anniversary of her death. So, I'm taking that as a sign . . . and hoping and praying :)
Either way, we will be very excited!
Hope all you ladies are doing well :)
Liam born January 31, 2010
