Naming days

So, I don't have a working camera, and even if I did, who knows if I would really use it and then actually post. I have fallen off the blogging wagon. I'm sorry. Anyway, I don't have any pics to share but I do have a story!

For some reason Chad and I can't think of any names for this baby. It's actually driving me a little insane. So, fairly often we have conversations about what to name him. Well one night at dinner while we were having this conversation, Josh burst out, "Hey guys! I have a great name! The greatest name in the whole wide city! We should name our little brother Tom Selleck!" Chad and I both just started laughing. Who is this kid and where in the world has he heard about Tom Selleck? But of course Josh thought he really was on to something and felt sad when we laughed at his beautiful name selection. So I reassured him, "Ok we'll name him Tom Selleck if he comes out with a big mustache ok?" That did the trick. He thought that was a great idea. Tom Selleck...what the?!

haha - that is hilarious! hopefully he doesn't come out with a mustache then huh? or actually, tom selleck isn't a horrible name - could be worse! I love your little guy and his funny sayings! He is hilarious! How are you feeling these days?

Love it! He must be watching some serious cable when you're not watching. Josh definitely wins for for the best laugh-getting lines! And just out of curiosity, have you looked in to the percentage of babies that actually have mustaches when they are born?

Be honest to you have a secret obsession with Tom Selleck and Josh found your hidden stash of memorabilia? Lol! That kid is a riot, love it!

Congratulations on baby#2 that is just so great. Baby names are the hardest. Hey I don't have anymore baby boy names it was hard enough coming up with a first and a middle for four. "Tom Selleck" I really think would be nice. J/k

I think it is a great name--I mean, Magnum PI--what a stud. Josh knows.

It could be Tommy while he's little and then grow up into "Tom" when he's in college or gets married... I think it has a nice ring to it :) Josh & Tommy do sound cute together, maybe go for Thomas, and drop the Selleck? Haha, I love that kiddo of yours!

That is too funny. We are having the hardest time with names too. Let me know if you come up with any great ones. Our current list is Jack and William (maybe calling him Liam) and that is all I got- at least that we can both decide on. Good luck!

I'm with you, Justin and I had a boy name we liked and were going to use if our baby was a boy. Yet, as fate would have it, my baby is a girl. We spend many dinners coming up with names and, sadly, most of the names my kids come up with for their baby sister would better suit a stripper. So be grateful for Tom Selleck, at least it's wholesome!

Congratulations on the exciting news! That is hysterical that your little boy came up with that name! What a funny little guy!

Holly Park said...

...alright lady--we need another update!!

The Hafen Family said...

I am laughing out loud. I do like Thomas though??? If we had a boy, that would have been on the list. I have fallen off the blogging wagon too, maybe we can bug each other about updating!!
