Another Kelly's Korner

Today on Kelly's Korner, it's "Show us your life- Your kids or future kids names" day so since I have had names picked out for forever I thought I would share.

What young girl who plans on raising a family one days does not think about the names of her future children?

Growing up I went from using Mercedes (don't ask it was an elementary school thing), to Kennedy or Reagan, and then finally to Addison. Can you tell I was all about having a daughter?

Obviously Addison took as that is what we named our little bundle of sweet goodness but I still have a few up my sleeves for future children even though we more than likely won't use them.

I am one of those weird parents who likes having a theme to all of their children's names. For me a first name ending with s-o-n was the way to go hence the name Addison. Plus, Daniel said we couldn't name all of our children to have the same first initial.

We now have Addison Grace and then for future use I had the names; Emerson(Emmie) Faith, Jackson Daniel, and Grayson Matthew all picked out and ready to use. Of course Daniel has to throw a kink into everything so he shot down the middle name of Faith which so totally went with Addison's middle name of Grace, and he also threw out the name Grayson. Of course he had absolutely know problem with the name Jackson Daniel and gee, I wonder why?

Did I seriously just spell no as know. Why yes I you see what pregnancy has done to my spelling abilities? I now have to proof read work related e-mails no less than three times before sending them to their recipients thanks to this wonderful issue.

Now, if you're wondering why we more than likely won't be using any of those other names here is why? First of all the name Jackson has grown in popularity this year. I kid you not I know of three babies who were just born this past year all with the name of Jackson. It's even worse than Addison which we actually considered changing. I just couldn't do it though because as some of you know, I had the name picked out since high school and I just couldn't sever the emotional tie I had with that name. Second, like I stated Daniel didn't like Faith for the middle name for Emerson and to be honest he doesn't care to much for Emerson. Third, other than because Daniel didn't care for it, we can't go with Grayson because our new girl name is Kadence Marie and we can't have one kid not a part of Mommy's crazy s-o-n theme, it just wouldn't be right and since I am anal like that it would drive me crazy for the rest of my life.

Now that we have no boys names picked out I guess I better get back to the drawing board. It was so nice being pregnant and not fighting over a name or hoping that you would have one picked out by the time you were released from the maternity ward.

I think I like the name Ethan, yeah Ethan could I just have to get Daniel on board. Oh brother!!! I would also like to add that I really, really, really like the name Harrison. The entire family pretty much vetoed that one from the beginning. Has anybody seen the movie "The Geisha Boy" with Jerry Lewis? Our family LOVES that movie and in it Jerry's rabbits name is Harry. All I can ever think about when saying the name Harry is how Jerry says it in the movie..."Harryyyyyy", "Harryyyyyyyyyy", "Harryyyyyy Nooooooooo". Well anyway, that's how I came up with the name Harrison. Blasted family for shooting my dreams down! LOL

And.........for you're viewing pleasure, my little bunde of sweet goodness...Lord how I could eat this child up! Get a load of those eyelashes while you're looking!

Beauitful baby. I like all of your names.

She is so beautiful! I want to pinch her cheeks.

I like your names, too. When I was a little girl, my "pretend" children were Heather and Weston, and then as a childless adult I always thought I'd name our kids Noah and Hannah. Obviously, no girl so no Hannah, and Joe took Noah out of contention IMMEDIATELY.

It turns out I love the names we finally picked! :)
