I' d hoped that this wouldn't happen, but alas, it has. I'm having second thoughts on our Baby-to-be's name. Shocking, right? I've said from the day I made the name public that it could change, but I really didn't think it would.
Big Daddy and I were comfortable with the name and The Muffin had gotten used to it. She was more than excited when I gave her a choice of two other names. The funny thing is, she has stuck with the same name from the very beginning. The name that starts with an "M" just like her name and Big Daddy's name and our last name. And it totally sounds silly with our last name. She is adamant that we use the "M" name. I have to think on it some more, but I've already called my sister so that she and my mom can discuss it and "come to a conclusion" (as I told them) by tomorrow. Big Daddy says that we'll talk about it more tomorrow, so I'm hoping for clarity by Monday.
I never would have made the name public if I had thought that it might change. We never planned to be an "M" family, with a lonely "J" (me) thrown in. We're not the type to think that any of our names have to start with the same letter or end with the same sound.
On the bright side, we haven't actually called the baby by the name of Pacey Grace, so it won't really know the difference. I've used the name here on the blog and Muff and I have used it, but usually she just says "baby" when she talks to my belly. And, I have nothing monogrammed.
I'll keep you posted, but don't be surprised if the name on my little baby ticker changes sometime soon.
Now that I've gotten that off of my chest, I'm ready for bed. We spent the evening at Big Daddy's friend's house having dinner, holding a sweet baby boy and letting the big girls play together. I was able to discuss everything pregnancy, labor, delivery, big girl and baby with the mommy. Big Daddy talked guns and ammo and business stuff with the daddy. Muff played so hard with the little girl that's about her age. We all took turns holding the six month old baby boy and being amazed by his sweetness and good behavior. The Muffin also found out that baby's drool and she doesn't like that.
