The Name Game

I have loved this pregnancy, it has absolutely flown by. I'm 30 weeks now, did you know that! Crazy right! 

We have been given practically everything we need for this little bubs arrival and even more than that she has clothes to last her till she's at least 5! Her wardrobe is busting at the seams, I've had to shrink bag all the different sizes just to fit it into her room. Which, for a nesting mumma is actually quite fun! Touching and folding all those little items... Cue lots of oohhh's and ahhh's and I can't believe she'll fit this one day's. 

There's just one thing that's been challenging. 

Her name. 

Finding the perfect name is hard! For months the thought of looking at names lists just made me want to puke. Meh! Don't even want to. So now that I've reached 30 weeks and I could have anything from 7 to 12 weeks left I figure I better bite the bullet and start writing a list. 

But where do you start??!!! 
Vintage and hipster names seems to be all the rage at the moment. From Florence, Amoret, Maybel and Vivian. To Apple, Wyatte, Willow, Haven, Shiloh, and Blue. 

Then there's all the questions regarding each name... 
What are the nicknames?
What are the bad nicknames? 
What's it's meaning? 
Does it flow with our last name? 
Does hubby and I agree on it? 
Will the kids be sad we didn't decide on Elsa or Ana? 

Yeah we are no where close. 

Oh geesh. I have decision fatigue. 

I'll try again tomorrow.
