Struggling With The Name

We love the name Tucker. It just doesn't quite fit. We've settled on Daniel. A name I've loved and wanted to use since before Bo was born. He's named after my brother, whom I adore.

We brought him home from the hospital nameless. He gave me the cold shoulder until we settled on the right name. He's all happy and up in my face now. First time he's really been awake and actively involved in getting sustenance and whatnot.

Shortly after we got home and he was laying on the couch nameless, I looked to my profound 4 year old for some insights into a name.

"What is his name Bo?"

Bo darted over to the couch and offered enthusiastically, "I don't know mom, let's look at the tag on his wrist to see!"

Angela he is SO precious. Definitely yours ... Congratulations. I can't wait to meet him. So I decided to leave you and your mom alone today. I thought about "Tucker" several times ... and low and behold you have changed his name yet again. I'll be calling in the morning. I love the name Daniel .. it fits.

Daniel is perfect (both the name and the baby!). He is seriously a beautiful infant - I just want to touch his soft little head and smooch on his cheeks...so precious.

Ah, Bo. I wish complete instructions for children, not to mention their names, came on those wristbands...

Daniel is a lovely name and especially since it is named after an adored brother!

Hey, this is Cynthia, Rebecca's sister, I was checking out your blog. What a cute baby. I love the name, but, you need to update your characters, your baby is still litsted as unnamed and unborn.
