Baby Girl

Our sweet little darling Miriam JoAnn joined our family March 29, 2013 at 12:04 am. She is 8 pounds 3 ounces, 20.5 inches long, and absolutely perfect! Everything went quickly and wonderfully and we are all doing great.

You name it.

Things have been really chaotic over here the last couple of weeks. We are in full on preparation mode for baby girl, and are counting down the days. I'm 36 weeks today so it's still like a month, but that is so little time in the realm of pregnancy! Especially because in a couple weeks it could really happen anytime. And I have so many projects on my "Before baby gets here" to do list, I feel like there is no way I will actually feel totally ready. Mason waited until pretty much right on his due date, and I'm hoping baby girl will do the same.

Notice I'm still calling her "baby girl"? That's because we CANNOT CHOOSE A NAME!!!! The problem is not that Austin and I can't agree on one, it's that we agree on too many. We have three complete names that we love, all very different. It's really narrowing down to just two of those, but I'm about to flip a coin and just let the fates decide.

I'm not one to post the names and ask for voting or anything. I am too sensitive to opinion and others' reactions that I need to just make my decision and wait until she's here to announce it. But what I would love is advice on how you choose your kids' names? With Mason it just seemed so obvious that was his name, and we never second guessed it. But I'm not getting that this time. I also think it's harder with a girl for some reason. Any insight into the process of name choosing will help us out.

Until the decision is made she will continue to be baby girl. Or "bebe sister" to Mason. Maybe we'll just name her that. Mason would be okay with it.
