A bit of a Dither...

I admit we are in a bit of a dither here at the RitterB's.
Albeit, not an unfamiliar dither.
But a quandary non the less.
"Pinkie" is do to make her grand entrance into this blustery world any day now. If you were to ask me 2 weeks ago what her given name would be you would have been told "Miracle Rose" for she is truly are Miracle from our loving God. A week ago as Marc-a-Roni and I drifted to dreamland my resolution of her name began to sink.. Like quicksand in a way. So our search began. Marc-a-Roni and I began to rattle off name after name.. We believe "Pinkie's" name must be unique.
We had an amazing phone visit with "Pinkie's" birth mom last night... We also chatted with the birth dad. Did I say it was an amazing visit? SO AMAZING... We talked about names. They have a name they will call her. It is a beautiful name. I shared how Rose would be her middle name. Named after her mama. My foster parents named me Rose. I have always loved that name. This morning on my blog stroll I came across this video "clip....
Maybe we should call her
"Truly Scrumptious"...


Marc-a-Roni has created a fun little name poll program. It has become a super fun game.... You, my blogger friends, are welcome to play along! Maybe the name you submit will be the name we will call our sweet "Pinkie" forever...

Boyd and I talked about names last night and we agreed on two...
Stella & Griffen

I gave him my list of names I've always liked and these were the two he agreed with! Your welcome to either of them!

I tried to get James to discuss names and he is always most uncooperative. We waiting until we knew what we were having with Sariah so we could focus on just one gender. Since I don't know yet this time, it has been hard. Not sure I'm really any help with names at this point, but I will try to look through my lists!

I liked Makayla last time, but James said it sounded like a black name....maybe that works better for you! :)

I love the middle name, Rose. That was going to the middle name if my baby had been a girl. I voted on a few different names on your poll. My son,has a really special story of how we came to name him Luke. Your little "Pinkie" will I'm sure have a special story too. Can't wait for her arrival!

I haven't seen Marc's list...how do I get to it??

Anyway, here are some of my favorites:
Avery
Eden
Ava
Mia

Ok, I was beyond thrilled when I went to the name site and noticed that Ava and Eden were already there....when I listed my favorites in my comment earlier, I didn't know what names had already been submitted! Cool.

So, I voted for Ava, because I just love it. But, I also submitted Avery because I love....and then, what about Eden, and maybe I should go back and submit Mia?!? Oh my, too much pressure.

Anyway, what's so wrong with calling her Pinkie forever? And one last thing, who was the first person to call her Pinkie?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the name Layla Rose. Layla is of African origin and means "dark beauty". It sounds so beautiful!! I added it to the poll.

McAtee Family said...

Oh - one more. What about Naomi - it is a biblical name that goes along with your other names.
