Someone help us name this baby!!
We were pretty shocked we were having a girl when we had our baby gender reveal Twitter Party back in March. If you don’t believe me, just watch this video. So needless to say, we had a boy’s name picked out, but not a girl’s name. You’d think in the two months since the party we would have come up with something, but nope. (Probably because the hubby keeps falling asleep on the couch every night.) So we never get a quiet-toddler-free-moment to discuss a name.
When I was at Mom 2.0, and walking around with a massively huge belly (see the picture above and you know what I mean), people asked if I had picked out a name yet. Sadly, no, and I was happy to get suggestions. Many fellow conference attendees rocked, and we had fun sharing name ideas, but nothing stuck. Not yet, anyway.
So here I am. Asking for your help. Do you have any names that you love that you’d be willing to share? At this point we are open to anything, other than names that end in an “a”. So no Briannas, Sophias, Olivias etc. We also aren’t too keen on popular names that were just released from the Social Security Administration 2011 Data Pool. So Abigail, for example, is out.
Anyone who takes the time to share the name love deserves something special, and what would be more ironic than some giveaway prizes that are “name relevant”? These three products, that one of you will win, have been featured in national magazines, on TV, sported by celebrities, and made by awesome Mom-preneurs who know the importance of good names!
Like this Name Your Tune awesome personalized CD ($20). Your child’s name is sung in a variety of kid favorite songs. (Think “Little Michael had a Farm“.) We have it for our first child and it is constantly played in the car. (Constantly.)
Or Mabel’s Labels Limited Edition Camp Combo ($39.95) to label all the kid gear we have – whether it is for camp, daycare, or playgroups! Whether it is for a backpack, shoes or a water bottle. These labels are award-winning.
But the biggest thing about not having a name is that I can’t get any Mom jewelry. No necklace to wear with my kids’ names on it. Like this gorgeous necklace from Studio Jewel, or any of the amazing necklaces and bracelets to which you could use the $50 credit, if you win, towards anything in her shop.
So help me out everyone! Because I’d love to label this baby’s shoes, sing a song about her running a Farm, and rock the Mom jewelry. Let the naming begin! Congrats to Sarah for winning! To see what name we went with, click here.

Mabel’s Labels has a promo for 10% off if you buy 2 or more camp combos with the coupon code: KIDS2CAMP. Good until 06/22/12.
These awesome Moms have also given me one of their products. Well, once I know what the name will be anyway.
