I'm in love with ya baby...
...and I don't even know your name.
-Alan Jackson, "I Don't Even Know Your Name"
Regular readers, I'm happy to report that this blog posting has nothing to do with class, social networking, or organizational communication. This will be a straight-up old fashioned "What's new in baby-world" kind of report.
So, I have a problem. It's the same problem I had 2 years ago - we simply cannot decide what to name this baby! We're leaning toward one syllable names, since that works well with Jay. Jay has my initials (JMF), so we considered giving this lil' guy Derek's monogram (DMF). Derek doesn't seem to care about that, but I think it would be kinda cool. We'd like some sort of family tie-in, either with the first or middle names. (I'd feel sorta bad that Jay Michael gets a first and middle name that have special family connections, and CheezeDoodle just gets 2 random names we pulled out of our heads. Or pulled off of the snack aisle at Kroger.) Boy names are just so much harder than girl names!
Here are some of the current contenders:
Benjamin (would call him Ben)
Russell (call him Russ?)
Reid (was in the final 4 when we picked Jay)
Thoughts? Opinions? We've only got 5 weeks to decide (and I would sure like it to be less than that!!!). Help!
