baby name contest & Writer's Workshop

Although this contest was supposed to have a prize, I apologize because I underestimated our financial situation. Not to say we're bad off but just not comfortable quite yet.

ANYWAY, I'm still going to hold the contest and the winner will receive....
the knowledge of winning!


Big A & I are having a hard time coming up with a boy name for this new baby. Now, we don't know for sure Baby 2 is a boy, but we have a girl name picked out.

If this baby comes out with more estrogen than testosterone,
she will be Evie (pronounced EV) Lynn (my middle name).

However, if this baby comes out with a pee-pee, we have only a vague idea of what to name him. Our choices so far: Isaac, Samuel, Charlie (EDIT: just Charlie, not Charles). Middle name for Isaac & Samuel would be Lee (same as Moose's, Big A's, my dad's, and Big A's dad's). However, Lee does not fit with Charlie. OR my husband's choice: Nacho. haha

Here is where you come in. Since we aren't stuck on any of the above male names, I am putting you in charge.


How to enter this contest (each constitutes an entry):

1. Leave a comment with your favorite boy name (first & middle preferably) OR a middle name suiting to the name Charlie.

How the winner will be chosen:

I am going to have Big A randomly pick a number (I don't know how to use the generator things, sorry).
I cannot commit to naming my child the name I like best out of your choices; I can't do that to Big A (sorry).

You have until the baby's born to enter, BUT if you want even a possibility of us actually naming the kid your suggestion (given that it comes out with a pee-pee, of course), you probably want to enter ASAP.

Good luck (and thanks)!

Writer's Workshop
Prompt 5: Show us something you made:

Although I stopped myself short of posting a picture of my son (because I did make him), I will show you the baby blanket I made.


Click HERE to see the original link to what I made!! I'm also in the midst of making another blanket that will hopefully be done by Saturday. I'll post pictures of it along with the party pictures maybe Sunday.

Also, my boy turned 2 yesterday (July 1). Be sure to click here to wish him a happy birthday. I'll post party pictures after this weekend.

Is Charlie going to be short for Charles? Charles Joseph is a combo I adore.

Awww...
My sister is having her baby today. She's having a boy, but if it were a girl, she picked the same name you did for a girl. Only difference is that she'd spell the middle name Lynne...it's just how it's spelled in my family :)

As for a boy name?
I love Isaac Lee.
I also love Charlie, but cannot, at this early hour, think of a good middle name for it, haha.

Good luck!

Love the blanket! And I've always loved the name Logan.

Jen said...

that is a great blanket.

Boys names are hard to come up with. We had a terrible time find names for our boys. Anyway, some that I like but didn't make the cut.
Owen John
Finley Paul
Liam Richard

EmmaP said...

girls names were much easier for me to pick out than my boy's...

I think any of these sound good with Lee as the middle name...

Bryson
Paxton
Payton
Gideon
Gabe
Jacob/Jake
Thatcher
Grayden
Hayden
Jaden
Braden
Hayden
Kaden
Aiden ... (you get the idea)
Ethan

A. Thanks for visiting!
B. It's kind of eerie that you call your son "moose." My husband (and daughter) both have blonde curls...and his family nickname has always been moose.
C. Hudson Lee, Lee Wallace, Lee Davidson, Davis Lee, Christopher Lee, Grant Lee (although I think that might be illegal to some southerners...:)). That's all I got! Best Wishes on the new babe!

My husband's name is Charlie (actually Charles, but I call him Charlie), but your right... it doesn't really go with Lee. I like Nathan. That's a good one. (But not Nate.) I've known some good guys named Nathan.
