Congrats...I agree with Bug Dude. Give the kid a strong traditional name. I like Jack, Henry and Christopher for boys. Emily, Lillian and Vivian for girls
The funky names are all cute and original but they still have to be Dakota or Montana when they are 80. LOL Its like a tattoo they cant remove. LOL And trust me...my name is a traditional name but spelled different than others and it is annoying to never have your name spelled right by others. So no funky spellings either.

Congratulations. It's nice to have them close in age so they can thump on each other instead of you. What's in a name? A rose would smell as sweet by any other name. I hope the summer goes well for you, now that you're really carrying!

Welll, congratulations to you two. Henry would work wee, for the Henry rifle. That way you get the gun name and a traditional name all in one. Kimberly would work for a young lady.
But no matter the name may the child be born healthy. That is realy the only thing that counts. I am blessed, all 4 of mine were healthy at birth. Bless you both.

Well, I think we have a nickname for this one. Lump has already been used, reload it is!

We are kind of doing that if we have a girl. We already have a girl name picked out that has a portion of JD's mother's name in the name. We're not against using family names but I have a huge family and a lot of the family names have already been used and passed down so that family reunions are already going to be confusing enough..lol.

For a girls we're actually thinking Adelle or some variation thereof, so "AD" would actually be a probably nickname.

Congrats Hope all goes well with the remodel and the Reload.

I like Gabriel (as in the angel) for a boy...one of my favorite stories in the Bible is Luke 1:19-20. Moral of the story - don't piss off an angel of God!
Congrats to you both!

Wow...Congrats. I suppose that's a nice surprise to get. Although...2 birthdays on the same day...that's going to be an interesting bday party plan.
