"F" Names

Sorry I haven't written anything substantial lately--only posted updates when I've added more names to the baby name list. I'm just so incredibly busy! But I guess we all are, really, so it's not like I'm any different than any of you :)

Anyhow, check out the "F" names and let me know what you think.

"E" Names

The one and only "E" name I like, at least from this site, is up to vote on. "D" names are there too in case you haven't voted on them yet.

There is a name I came across and liked that isn't in this site's database: Adoniram. I don't exactly know what it means--I just read it and liked the sound of it. David said there was a missionary named Adoniram Judson. Since David's grandfather's name is Judson, maybe we'll name the baby that--if it's a boy. But then again, David's cousin and wife just had a baby boy and used Judson for one of his middle names, so maybe we shouldn't. We wouldn't want to steal their thunder or anything, you know?

What do you think?

Baby Ticker

For those of you asking about it, I've finally gotten around to changing the "baby ticker." The countdown is now accurate, so enjoy!

From the Mouth of Babes

The other day David was on the phone in the front yard while Perry and Daisy played around near him. All the sudden I heard David's tone of voice change. It wasn't that he was mad, just talking to a different person. When he finished on the phone David found me and filled me in, with raised eyebrows, on all that wet on out there. He gave me the, "He's your child" look.

Apparently Perry saw that the new neighbor across the street was outside, so he asked her:

"Hey, did your dad die a long time ago?"

"What?" she responded, a little confused, then "what did he say?" addressing David.

"I'm sorry," said David, not knowing how to get out of explaining, "he's asking if your dad died a long time ago."

"Oh, no... He's still alive."


And then Perry ran away, leaving David and the neighbor to look at each other; one with puzzlement and the other in embarrassment.

Have your kids ever said something strange or embarrassing? I'm sure they have, almost every kids does at some point or another. I'd love to hear about it, if it's not still too taboo a subject to talk about.
