So for the last couple months we have been trying to figure out a middle name for our little girl. It's not as easy as it sounds and a lot of people told me that she doesn't even need a middle name. But yes, she does need a middle name, at least in my world. My kid's middle names get used daily if not hourly. I like using my kids middle names to address them, not just when they're in trouble, but I like how it goes together with their first name. I'm crazy, I've never disputed this.
I was sick of not being able to think of names and Joe only tossing out names as a joke, so I went to the library and picked up four (yes I needed four) baby name books. The little one at the top has become my favorite because it's not just a big dictionary of names that is pretty worthless, but the authors make up lists of names. Now some of the lists are silly like rapper kid's names or rock star kid's names or names that no one is cool enough to have. Some of the lists are quite helpful like literary names, vowel names, and old lady cool. I've really enjoyed this book and looking at all the lists.
I'm pretty sure we've figured out her name, well at least I hope so. And no, I'm not telling you right now. You will find out in about a month and a half.

Aren't husbands great when it comes to names? Pubert, Bob Saget, Crosby. Sigh.

That sounds like a fun baby name book! I think choosing a name is always hard. Good luck!
