Emma "WHAT" Simpson

Ok, thanks for all the comments! I am thinking were like 99.9% sure she will be Emma. The other day I said to Matthew, "What if we named the baby Molly instead of Emma?" He just looked at me with this exasperated expression and said, "No! Her name is Emma,stop asking me about that." I totally cracked up because that is totally his dad coming out! So, I took that as a sign to just stick with what my gut told me first! But, middle names that is trickier. Right now were, who am I kidding, I am thinking, Jane. This is Jeff's mom's middle name and I like the idea of naming my kids after special people in our lives. Matthew's middle name is Jeffrey, Caroline's is Carlysle after my beloved Grandma and so Jane is fitting. But, I do get some weird responses to Jane. Mostly of the " I think that sounds a little hickish" I also like Elizabeth b/c that is my mom's name. Finally, I am considering just having two middle names Emma Elizabeth Jane. But, I am not a huge fan of wordy names. Seriously, if this is all I have to worry about I should be counting my blessings. SOmetimes its just nice to blog about the mundane things in life.
In other news,this weekend I am heading up to Petoskey to Bay Harbor for my annual girl's weekend. I am so excited to just get away and relax. All of us are driving up Friday morning in my van and we will be there until Sunday. Its suppose to be cold, but heck, who cares. Sleeping in, eating out...no kids...heaven!

Emma is so cute...I like Katie's idea...Emma Kate! But your other ideas sound good too! Have fun picking!

I like the name Emma Elizabeth (But I am partial to Elizabeth b/c that's Faith m.name.) I love the name Elizabeth.

I think both have a great sound to them...

I think I would definitely avoid Elizabeth. Having "EE" as your first two initials could give her some real problems down the road...especially if she marries someone with a last name starting in "L" or "K" or "T" or "W" (...EEL! EEK! EET! EEW!).

Emma is a very nice name, so much nicer than some of those funny names that people make up (I believe they actually think those names sound unique and upscale--not!). My grandma once gave us advice to try to pick names and initials that will still be nice as the child grows.

God bless!
