Happy Friday! If you are visiting from Kelly's Korner, welcome and thanks for stopping by!
Today we are participating in Kelly's Korner, Show Us Your Life - Baby Names.
We are a tiny bit scared of starting our family. We just don't feel quite ready yet. We've only been married a year, and we want to have a couple more years of enjoying each other and being selfish before we have a baby. I'm 28...I have plenty of time....right??!!! (If I don't, please don't tell me. I really truly don't want to know - ha!). Hubby says he is nowhere near ready, but he keeps talking about other people's babies and what other people say about starting their families, so I can tell that it is something that he carries on his heart and seeks opinions about. I am confident that God knows what is best for us, and I pray that he will tell us when it's time, and that we will be quiet and listen to him.
Now that being said...let's talk names! That is the fun part, right? Hubby and I have always talked about baby names. When I was little, my favorite girl names were Melody and Stacey. I still adore them. Hubby, not so much. Isn't it funny how when you know someone that you didn't really like you couldn't possibly use their name? So, lately I have been loving the name Grace. I don't know why, but I think it is just so sweet. I'm not sure about a middle name yet, I have some ideas, but I'm not sure. There is a certain special family member that I would like to honor :) But she reads this, so I'm not telling!
I never really dreamed about boy names. I love the name Houston, but I'm pretty sure that would be silly to name him that while we lived here. So, that's out. I also love Bryce, but our neighbors named their son that, so I would feel funny using it too. I want to honor my Daddy somehow if we have a son. He has no living brothers or sisters, and two daughters. The Adams line ends with my sister and I. Isn't that so sad? That is part of the reason that it took me almost a year to change my last name, I didn't want to let it go. His name is Jerry Wayne Adams, so I want to pull a middle name from that somehow, I'm just not sure how just yet.
Hubby wanted to name his son Jeff Jr. I vetoed that one quickly. I know what you are thinking, wow, that's mean, he just wanted to pass on his name...no - that is not what he was doing. He said, "Wouldn't it be great, when people call the house, they would say, Is Jeff there? and you would say, Big Jeff or Little Jeff - hahahaha! That would be so cool! Yeah, not doing that. So now, he has decided that he would like to name our future son Rhys. Kind of like the peanut butter candy without that last -es pronounced on the end. He saw it on ESPN and just loves it. We shall see how that goes. I'm not sure how I feel about that one...
I can't wait to read all of your baby names!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
