Stressing out. But it's a good stress, right?

Ok, so dang... we're having another girl. I umm.. whoa, I totally don't know how to fathom that. I never thought that I'd ACTUALLY have two girls.

I mean, sure I was worried about boy pee and all the other things that go along with having a boy vs. a girl. Sure I thought it would be best to have two girls so that we could get more use out of the hand-me-downs and they can share a room and whatever, but to be honest, I just really didn't think it would happen!

When the tech hinted it would be a girl, I didn't really believe her. I mean, I didn't think she was LYING or anything, I just thought for sure it would be a boy. Not that I "felt" that it was a boy or anything, it's just that... well, you have a girl, then you have a boy, right? That's the way it's happened for almost everyone in both Armondo's and my families.

And OMG. How to you choose a SECOND perfect girl name? Is it even possible? There's one name that I really like, and so does Armondo, but if we use that name, we're going to be one of those families that gets laughed at because all of our kids names start with the same letter. And in our case, it would mean that the shortened form of Armondo's real name, Cherry's real name, and the other child's name would all be the same. (Sort of like having the names Alexander, Alexia, and Alexandria or something.) We have a shortened list of girls' names, but seriously, none of them are really appealing to me except the one that's so similar to the others!

But I think I've come up with a couple of "blog" names for the little one. I need your input though. I put some of the suggestions you guys had for this post.



Anyway, let me know what you think!

I like Peaches (which I voted for, but was tempted by "Berry", then you would have Cherry and Berry:o)

I don't think people would mock you for having to names that started with the same letter. I don't think you should let that stop you.

I voted for bunny :)
