Okay, so first of all, after reading all of your fun comments from yesterday’s baby names post, I no longer feel quirky.

Y’all are SERIOUS (and slightly psychotic–your words, not mine!) about your baby names!

5 letter first names + 6 letter coordinating middle names (with matching vowel-consonant-vowel order, of course). Biblical names that work in Hebrew and Japanese (I confess I don’t even know what this means). All J’s. Only Celtic/Nordic names.

It was a lively, interesting, and slightly insane discussion. I loved every single second of it!

Especially the comment that deduced that our Baby #6 is going to be named “Gerund Blue Blazes.” (You got me!).

And the reader who couldn’t even comprehend her husband’s suggestion of “Dominique” after their first was named “Leah” (her exact words: “While I was pregnant with #2, he literally suggested Dominique. DOMINIQUE?!?!?!?!?!?!??? (He said we could call her Q. I mean, I can’t even…”)). Girl, you are my jam. And you’re also responsible for my cracking up right in the middle of the boys’ math work. Love it.

You know what else I loved? All of your responses to the “thankful package” giveaway from last week. It was such a blessing to see who and what y’all are thankful for in your lives. It sounds like many of you have wonderful Mamas (me too!), friends, and friends-who-might-as-well-be-family.

And now, it’s time to say who won!

And that would be…

Beth said in response to the prompt about someone who inspires or helps: “My dear friend, Angela, who knows when a brownie and some beautiful flowers help somehow. She never judges and always waits to process whatever I am going through. She also prays and speaks the truth in love. She is a gift from God to me!”

That’s awesome, Beth! Shoot me an email at blogabbie{at}gmail{dot}com, and I will get you hooked up with your goodies!

Happy Tuesday, guys!

  1. Whoever it was who said their husband wanted to name their child Dominique and it not going with their other children’s names…my husband actually suggested Shakira, Topanga and Beyonce, now Beyonce would go with our “B” rule (haha) but Topanga, really? The scary part is I think he was actually serious 😉

I love hearing from you guys!
