We Are So Picky!

Names, names, names....picking one is so hard and we are so picky. With Claire we talked names throughout my entire pregnancy we never had more than a short list. Then when I unexpectedly went into labor early we had to decide on a name. Which was about 20 minutes before she born. So here we are again trying to find the right now, and its proving to be just as difficult.

We love the name Elle but are struggling to find a middle name that works. Any suggestions? We also like Genevieve and Hannah. Thinking we like Hannah Elizabeth and not sure on a middle name for Genevieve. And finally we love Eva Charlotte. Though we would use the German/Swiss pronunciation of Eh-Va not Eee-Va. So which do you like? Any suggestions?

I really like the Elle or Genevieve (obv - i'm a "Jen").

So fun - I can't wait to have #2. How far apart will your girls be?

We're trying to decide when we want to start trying again. I don't want our kids to be far apart, but isn't the golden rule 1 year between pregnancies? I just don't want to wait that long! Our little guy is 7 months already - and he's a little peanut too - like your Claire.

Congrats again!

Elle Anne? It has a nice ring.

I love Elle! Middle names are so hard though. Elle Paige? Good Luck!

Claire is 16 months now. I found out I was pregnant when she turned 1. We got pregnant pretty quick once we started trying. She will be 19-20months when the baby arrives. I think it will be perfect. It's nice that she is so tiny right now since I'm pregnant and still lugging her around. Though she took her first steps last week so we are on the road to mobility independence...lol.

I love Elle and and Genevieve as well just can't find the right middle name. So hard!

I am so behind on my blog, I really need to post an update. In the meantime I can say that Hannah Elle was born 7/8/13 at 36 weeks. Though a preemie she was a late term preemie and much healthier than her big sister was. We are settling in at home and as soon I get time I will post a much needed update.
