There are so many great reasons to find out the sex of the baby. For me, the bonding aspect was number one. Now that I know she’s a she I can really start picturing her. Imagining our life with this little girl. Imagining her with her brother and the kind of relationship she’ll have with her dad, with me. I can start thinking about the woman she’ll become and the things I want to do with her. (I can take my son to a spa, but let’s be real, she’ll probably enjoy this more!)
But first things first: we can start really thinking about names.
I try not to think too much about just how big of a deal naming someone is. Instead I’m just focusing on names we like, and more importantly, names we can agree on!
With our son it was pretty easy. We actually had a different name picked out (Marcus), but then about a month before he was born we looked into some other names and fell in love with a different one. We both liked it, knew people who had that name that we liked (very important to have a positive association!), and it just felt right.
Right now we’re just putting together a list of names that we both like. Whether or not they feel right will come in time I think. We may even have to wait and see what she looks like.
For now, here is our list:
We’re still looking – I just spend a good 10 minutes looking over celebrity baby names thinking ‘wow, they had a baby’. I feel so out of the loop!
But yeah, what do you think? 🙂
