Well, waiting seems longer for some reason when I know the baby is really coming. The days drag by, especially when I am working. I seriously checked my phone 20+ times today. Not joking. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

E went to her doctor visit end of last week and all is well as far as we all know. She is still feeling very nauseated all the time. And guess what... she called asking for the names we plan to give the baby depending on if it is a boy or a girl. If you are like me, you are probably thinking, hmmmm...wonder why she wants to know that??? You may not believe it, but she wants to put the name we have chosen for the child on the original birth certificate. What is going on here....this is not like I pictured at all. Turns out I am not the smartest one, nor the one who should be in charge. So, we emailed back, giving the first names, but still have not settled on middle names. Natalie in S.Africa...any suggestions?

We'll keep you posted. Keep praying for E and for baby!

I'm kind of a name nerd and have spent way to much time on baby naming sites and boards. Anyways I recomend www.babyzone.com , you can put in the orgin and sex and it will give you a huge list of African names and if you click on a name it will give you th meaning of the name. Maybe something will feel right.

I just browsed through the list and I like the name Ameena, it means trustworthy. I think Marley Ameena Moore is very cute. Nothing really jumped out at me from the boys list. I did see that Kwame means born on Saturday. So maybe Cohen Kwame Moore.

What are your English names and I will try and suggest African second names to go with that...

I check your blog everyday...Can't wait to see a pic of your little miracle!

Will keep you posted and post some suggestions shortly!

Send Nats and Me your names and between us, and we'll find something appropriate. There are so many names.

PS: Which part of Africa is E from? And her tribal roots. Each tribe speaks a different language. In SA we have 11 official languages. Each language has a different meaning to their names. So if you can provide that info, I'm sure Nats and I could help.
