Rainy Dayzzzz

it has been gloriously cloudy for the last....week? unlike most people, i am energized by the cloudy days! i invite the rain. i cheer for the thunderstorm to roll through. i open the blinds and let the lovely gray into my living room. my mom always gave me a hard time growing up because a good portion of my wardrobe was gray. well...i still have a good percentage that is gray, but i can't help it. i love gray.

so since i've had so much time on my hands, i've been doing ridiculous things like researching baby names. i'm not pregnant!!! so don't even ask me. but, i've recently had a fascination with names and what they mean. it probably started when Josh and Katie found out that one of the names they're considering (they ARE pregnant) for their baby unknown is Gavin and it means "White Hawk of Battle." who wouldn't want their name to mean that?! we've had numerous discussions with them and others about prospective baby names. we believe it's better to get your "dibs" out there so you're not disappointed when you're friends get pregnant and "steal" your favorite baby name. (we also understand though that if/when they're pregnant and we're not, they pretty much have all rights to claim a name.)

so, here's my favorites. it should also be said that i don't really want to have (a) girl(s) but i do have a few on my list. knowing my luck, i'll have triplet girls.

boys
Emery
Boen
River
Finley "Finn" for short
Ash
Maddox
Sawyer

girls
Scout
Sadie
Everly
Millie

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who looks at baby names for fun. :)

maddox is on my list of boy names, too! except i want to spell it "mattix" :) i guess we will have to fight over that one!

altough...i think i should get it, since it is my last name. :)

Ash and Sadie, swwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeet:) Tho Sadie, Millie, and Scout would sound cute for your triple balls of joys.

thatsilverlining... wait, Mattix Mattix? :)

Gosh, I haven't reached this part of my life yet. Too busy confusing my cat and dog names - but they all respond, so I guess it doesn't matter!

mags- i meant to say...i plan on being married (which i'm not now) when i get knocked up, so he won't have a double name. :)

Mags said...

hahaha, I dunno, you could do it before the marriage thing comes, that would be an awesomely unique name! :)

I understand dibs with family, but don't worry to much about it with friends. You never know who you will live near 5 or 10 years from now. Also on the whole dibs thing, "they" and/or you may never have that gender.

Since you put it out there, I have to cringe at Millie. It sounds like an old horse headed to the glue factory. Sorry, just the image I get.

Big Mark Twain fan huh?

Why do you need a hobby? I think picking baby names is an excellent hobby. I do it all the time, and needless to say, it's probably more likely out of the two of us, you will be the one to actually need a baby name. I'd share my favorites with you, but I feel like I have to keep them safe & secret, you know, just in case! : ) Oh, and BTW if you get too bored in your new house, you have an often bored neighbor not too far away!
