Your MIL is just being a poop because you wouldn't let her touch your belly, LOL. ;D I think Calliope Meadow Stone is completely lovely and flows really well!
Seriously, don't let her weirdo opinions bother you. I chose not to share my kiddo's middle name with anybody last time because I didn't want to know what they thought because I *knew* that was his name and I knew any negative opinions would have just been stressful for me. Anyway! People tend to overshare their opinions when they think they can shift you to their way of thinking. Or when they're obnoxious. :P Don't let it get to you, you've chosen a gorgeous name for your sweet girl!!
Oh my goodness, I am really enjoying this thread today. Shaving, shoe stories and all!
Alaskanmomma - I agree. The name is beautiful! I think alliteration with the consonants would be more obvious. But the "O" is softly poetic and just seems to make the whole name flow together nicely. It's been so hard sharing names because EVERYONE has a tv character, pet, ex-girlfriend, ect . . . and an opinion to go with it. So now I just tell people I wont decide until I see and hold them. But secretly we've agreed on two.
Squeezed in one more US yesterday since I decided to hold off on an induction. The tech estimated 6lbs 3oz for baby A and 5lbs 14oz for baby B. I worry about the smaller one sometimes because her movements are so much gentler and she will need to be strong while waiting her turn to be born. Maybe she's just conserving her energy, lol.
Happy Spring Everyone! It's equinox time and I for one am ready for new life to blossom. Ahem, cue labor.
