DD was just over 6 lbs at birth and we definitely needed NB sized clothes for about the first month or so, in fact they were a bit too big the first week or two.
The only one I don't particularly like is Eden. If DS had been a girl, I would have been fighting hard for "Ruth" as it was my mother's name. Another Biblical name I like (but we couldn't use) is Esther.

How about a dance or yoga video aimed at children? Does she like to help around the house? Can you supervise her while she...
I just wanted to add that if you're avoiding ALL dairy, you need to read labels on absolutely everything. I've been (mostly) dairy-free for years now, and I still run across stuff that I think should be safe but has hidden dairy, like taco seasoning, chicken broth, and lime-flavored tortilla chips.
There is a page on the ssa site that tells you how long you should expect it to process. I found this when I realized we needed DS's SSN to file taxes.
