Sugar and Spice





We are having a girl. Andrew has insisted from the beginning he was having a baby sister. Just this weekend he came into our bedroom at 6:30 am and informed us that we needed to call his sister a name. "Not a mean name though, Mommy. That wouldn't be nice. How about we call her a LOVELY name?" On my way to the doctor today I asked him if he thought we were having a brother or a sister. "Mommy, it is a sister." he responded very matter of factly.

Chad and I both KNEW we were having our third son. We had even named him. We have had no discussion on girl names and I haven't purchased any girl things....yet. The Strasburg Children's store in our mall is going out of business. I wonder if I can single-handedly keep them open. :)

We would love any great name ideas you would like to share with us. We won't promise to use them, bu we will gladly read them. And we need a new blog name in April I suppose.

Congratulations! That is so exciting! Girls are fun. Our only suggestion on the name is that it is not Ava, we already cannot keep all the Avas in our life straight. Masen says, "Is it our friend Ava, our cousin Ava, our neighbor in our old house Ava, or our neighbor in our new house Ava?" To which I reply it is the Ava in Madylen's class...other than that, we have no opinion, sorry we aren't any help

You are in luck, we STILL have not used the name Dorcas yet, and since you are going to have a precious little girl, what name could be better? You will NEVER have to worry about there being another Dorcas in her class! ;)
PS- We are thrilled for you.
