I was asked today,
and I am asked this ALL OF THE TIME;
If I had another baby what would his/her name be?
Well I have thought very long and hard about the answer to this question.
Because as you ought to know by now I was supposed to be having another baby in November...
Supposed to be....
I am not going to say we'll never have another baby,
because, well, if nature had it's way we probably would.
So until it is made naturally impossible,
I will try really hard to never say never...
So way back in April I made name plans.
Were we to have a girl her name
(as far as I had decided, I never got a go ahead from Phil about either name,
and I changed Fenix's name to Fenix at the last minute
so I may have just ended up changing my mind....)
would have been:
Robbin Ellen Graves
A bird of course,
and my maiden name, sorta.
Ellen, because that is my middle name.
And well obviously Graves comes next....
Now for a boy it was a little bit more interesting.
Fox Michael Graves
I was certain we were going to have another little boy...
I still see him out of the corner of my eye sometimes...
Is that weird...
Fox was the only name that ever sounded right to me for another baby boy.
Baby bears, lions, and foxes all are called cubs....
I totally would have needed to have another cub.
Now as I explained along with Bear and Lyon's names,
with our boys names they are supposed to be subtly funny.
as far as I know,
isn't subtly funny.
Michael for a middle name is a story all its own.
I have an uncle Mike.
Phil has an uncle Mike.
I have two sisters who married men named Michael.
They each have a son named after their husbands.
So two nephews named Michael.
Plus I have a cousin named Michael...
(Phil, remind me if I've left anyone out...)
So many Michaels...
This has been something Phil and I have laughed about for years.
We love it!!!
So when we were talking about names,
we joked about naming a boy Michael.
My doctor, who would have delivered our baby, his name is Michael!!!
I laughed and laughed about this,
exclaiming to Phil that we had the perfect opportunity to have a Michael!
We had someone to name him after!
Obviously Michael wouldn't work for a first name,
but a second name,
It'd be something to smile about every time we called his name.
When the kid gets in trouble and you call out his name,
its always the first and middle name when they are in trouble,
I'd smile every time...
and it's hard to be mad when you are smiling...
