what's in a name.

Okay friends- so naming your unborn child is really hard!

Yes, it is true. We still have no idea what to name this little baby boy growing inside my tummy. A few weeks ago while I was wandering around on my lunch break, I walked into a bookstore and found this little book on the $5 table. After several minutes of deep contemplation about the kind of mother I was if I needed a book to help me name my child, I found myself at the counter handing over my $5 note.

Now I never thought I would be the kind of parent to buy a naming book for their child. Honestly, I always thought people who bought these types of books must be missing some kind of parenting gene because what kind of parent can't think of a name for the first born child?!?

Well, it turns out WE are the kind of parents who can't think of a name for this little guy!

After I bought this book I actually sat down and read the entire first chapter about the process of choosing a name and how people actually do this. Sad. I know.

But in true Aussie fashion, it was written with humor and whit and made me laugh about the struggle of choosing a name because, let's be honest, it will happen. We will eventually decide on a name that we love and in the end it won't even be about the name. It will be about the person attached to it that we love.

So until then we will continue to randomly text, call and shout out boy's names until something feels just right :)

  1. I like Rufus! He he. Nathan is also a dam fine name. Ha ha ha. Not that I am bias :)
