    January in Michigan? Geesh! What a beast!

    The child we had in Minnesota came in August...very good planning! (even though we never plan this things!).

    AMDG,
    Sarah
    Not the ideal, but it worked out fine. The predicted snow didn't really materialize.

    December 1 (supposed to be late November) was actually worse. We were going to the hospital with baby #1 about midnight and the roads were icy and not salted yet, husband was trying to call his parents to let them know on his cell phone as we were sliding out of the sub, and I still get teased that my response to "how are you doing" was "shut up and drive". Baby #2 came in July ;-)

    I will still be praying for nice clear roads in January.

            Prayers for you, Sarah! So, do you have a Therese yet? Because you know the joke is that every large Catholic family has to have a Therese and a Dominic. Of course, Aloysius Augustine Aquinas rolls right off the tongue as well.

            Blessings,

              According to my dh is it off limits to talk names before a baby is born (!!!). He is totally good-natured about it - turning any attempted conversation about it into a joke-fest. He's quite hilarious, actually.

              We have not used any of the names you listed though, so we must still have a lot of good ones left to pick from!

                  ... what beautiful baby thoughts to begin the day with!

                  Sarah, you are in my prayers. I thought (perhaps wrongly, though) you'd been quieter on the board lately and was wondering if you might be expecting, and hoping everything was fine. Blessings to your beautiful family!

                  Margaret, we are so happy to hear of your new one! Our prayers for grace, health and joy in these early weeks (and after that, too!).

                  I must admit I was originally going to post about the Official Topic. Than I got so delightfully distracted by baby thoughts & birth stories where All Ends Well: baby named & comes home!

                  My older child, who is very sensitive to issues of cruelty (rather than just violence per se -- those are easier to handle) was brought to tears when he read one of the early Green chapters in Robin Hood (describing the treatment of a poor man who killed a royal deer). So we started King Arthur, and when he hit the chapter on Balin and Balan, we stopped. He was just getting more and more stressed about King Arthur.

                  We did well with Pyle's Robin Hood, read aloud, and with much of Pyle's King Arthur though I set it aside due to sensitivities. For getting Arthur in this sweet child's ear I'm now trying Sutcliff's The Sword and the Circle. I plan to have him do Arthur again when he's older, so I just want him to hear a version of the stories in fine English. This version was recommended by several on the AO forum though it doesn't shine in terms of Amazon ratings. So far it suits us; we're not even halfway through, though.

                    Hold on --- why didn't anyone clue me in to this rule? We don't have Therese or Dominic. Dominic paired with Kennedy does not equal phonetic bliss. Therese never crossed my mind ---- I guess because none of my other children have names with French pronunciation.

                    One of my Catholic doctor friends teased me years ago when I was PG with Rachel, telling me that some variation of Mary was de rigueur.

                    Wonder what other kind of Catholic baby naming rules I'm breaking?

                      Ana,
                      Thank you for the prayers!

                      And my kids agree with you about the Green versions of the books. They are not sensitive to the differences like your kids are, but nonetheless, they did not like that Green "changed" the stories. Evidently they see the Pyle versions as the "real" ones, and Green's are just "his version of the Pyle books". 😆

                        Dianna,
                        We have similar phonetic issues!

                        Not to mention we have lived so many places, and known so many great families, that we tend to think a name is "taken" when we know someone who has it!! Naming a boy Dominic would make me feel as though I were picking a favorite child....

                        So many issues to naming a person!😊

                          We do discuss baby names but made a pact never reveal them to the outside world until the child has made his/her appearance. We got tired of hearing people's (often not-so-helpful) comments early on. Instead, upon finding out that we are expecting, we have given each of our children a moniker befitting an elderly Jewish man - regardless of gender. Our first was Abraham, second was Irving, third was Moishe and the last was Shlomo. Since DH's father is Jewish, he got quite a kick out of it. It drove everyone else nuts.

                          Now, back to the topic at hand...I didn't realize there was such a difference between readings! I've never read Pyle, but have now added it to my mile-long must-read bucket list.

                            THIS ^^^^^

                            Way back when, I wanted to name my Rachel -- Rachel Maeve. My SIL made a negative comment, so I retreated. After that, we didn't find out genders or share name selections with ANYONE. It made folks bananas, and totally cracked us up.

                            And obviously, the name I loved so much has come to fruition, just had to be patient. It FITS my Maeve so very well, and you know what? My SIL adores it now. #gofigure
