    Yeah, she is super excited. I wish she understood the concept of time a little better, because she does keep asking when the baby will be here, so it's hard to explain that it will still be about 4 months.

    Congratulations! That's so exciting. Shae is always asking me when the baby is coming out too. Between her and DH, the impatience is about to drive me bonkers.

    So behind and soooo excited for you, Ava and the rest of the crew!!!

    Congrats on the baby girl!! Any names picked out or will you let Ava name "her baby"?

    No, we can't seem to agree on any names just yet. If Ava had her way she would name the baby Harrison, but that is because when she was in daycare there was a little baby named Harrison that she LOVED and now every babydoll that she has is named Harrison and whenever I ask her what we should name her new SISTER she says Harrison! LOL So I don't think that we will take her opinion into consideration too much as we try to come up with a name we all like!

    Hahaha! Love that she names all her babies Harrison. So cute. We are struggling with names too. It was so easy last time but this time around we can't agree on anything that we both love.

    Jackie03291 replied to jlynnpaine's response:
    Yeah, we just can't seem to agree on anything! I came up with a list of 25 names that I liked and my husband said that he only semi-liked 2 of them and of course those 2 were ones that are definitely at the bottom of my list, so who knows which way we will go. He is not really offering up any suggestions, so I may just have to use my mommy veto power eventually!

    Off of my list, Ava said she liked the name Violet, but part of me wonders if that is because it was last on my list because it was alphabetical and ends in "V", so it might have been the only one she could remember by the time I was done reading it! LOL

    Hahaha! My DH wouldn't even discuss it with me for the longest time. He was set on a name and didn't want to even listen to any other ideas. Jerk. Now, after telling him how pissed off I was, he's at least willing to discuss it. I think we may be able to compromise by choosing a first name he loves and I like and a middle name I love and he doesn't hate. I like the idea of mommy veto power though.

    So cute about Ava. She was probably like, "Dang Mom, after that, I'm lucky I can remember my own name! I pick Violet. Didn't you say Violet was on there?"

    A former co-worker's daughter had just seen "Bambi" and wanted to name her new brother "Thumper." Needless to say, it was vetoed.
