I keep looking at my list of names and thinking "wow. One of these names is probably going to be our new baby's name. That's wild!".
With Grace, her name had been chosen for years. With Lily, I looked at her and talked to her after she was born and said the names we had on our list to see which seemed to fit her. In all honesty, I didnt like her name until she was about a year old. It's a sweet name, it just wasnt what I wanted to name her.
With this baby, I have said the names we have chosen to the baby inside. She seems to respond to two of the names very consistently, and I get no kicking for the other names. Just in using them to talk to her, I mean. Consistently she responds to two of them.
I do not expect a dream or anything, never had one before.
But we still have time! Your baby may yet tell you his name!
