it was amazing
Recommended for: pregnant mamas

Finally after reading a couple of baby name books, writting down my favorites, and crossing some out because I decided that I didn't like them because they were boring or my husband didn't like it. So, after 7 months(30 wks. to be exact)we agreed on a name. After we decided on a first name we picked out a middle name, which didn't take long. So, the verdict is in.
