The Name Game

Selecting a name for your child is no small feat.  Some lucky people decided on the names for their future children when they themselves were barely more than children (and their spouses happened to like them as well...or at least didn't hate them enough to veto them). We did not have any pre-selected names and soon discovered that between the size of our families and the number of people we know with children, finding a name that wasn't already spoken for would not be easy. Rick & I started a small list of names prior to knowing the baby's gender, I say small because there were not a lot of names that we both liked...shocking, I know! Once we found out we were having a girl, that narrowed our list even further.  However, our girl list was surprisingly longer than our boy list.  We crossed off a couple more names over the next few weeks until one day we got the list back out and we both selected the same name as our favorite....


Stay tuned for her middle name...


  1. I LOVE Mia! The name and the baby. :-) Have you guys actually decided on a middle name yet, or is that still up in the air?

  2. Her middle name is still being decided. I will keep you posted! xoxo
