|Do I look like a Grayson?|
I still think Beck is a pretty cool name - although only 2 people agree with me on that. And I think little Bing could look like a Beck.
Thank you EVERYONE for NOT voting for Maddox! Hopefully there are not enough Maddox parents out there to get angry at me (unlike the Grace parents...) - but Maddox is just a crazy name. What would it be shortened to? Mad? Maddy? Mad Max?! Oh! Mel Gibson when he was cool!
|Ooooh, Mel when he was cool!|
So, where are we with our childs name? I'm not sure yet. We've narrowed it down to these 5 names, and I think there are only two on the list which are really gonna make it to the end... but let me paint a picture of how this is REALLY going to go down.
... fast forward a few months...
Wife: Hey baby!
Me: Hey! How is China?
Wife: Horrible! You should have come! Oh WHY oh WHY did I come and NOT you! You would have traveled better than me, you would have slept better than me, you can speak some Mandarin... I should have stayed home with the other 4 children and YOU should have been here*.
Me: I know. I told you that.
Wife: I'm so sorry.
Me: I know. I forgive you.
Wife: We go pick up Bing tomorrow!
Me: Awesome! I'll be praying! Call me as soon as you can!
... next day...
Wife: YAY! He is so beautiful!
Me: Awesome! So, which name are we going with? Luka or Kai?
Wife: I've decided to name him Horatio.
Me: WHaaaaaaAAATTT?!?? What wasn't on the list!
Wife: I know! But you should see him! He has the cutest little Horatio eyes!
Me: You can't name him Horatio! What, is he from Denmark?!?!
Wife: No silly. But you know, once you see your child, then you can name him! Before you see him, you just don't know what he is...
Me: ... WHAT?! Then WHY did you keep me up for HOURS each night going over the different names? And saying them different ways?! Luka! LUKA! Luuuuka! LU-KA! Luke. Luuuuke. LUKA!
Wife: Oh you don't understand! You're not a mother!
Me: You can't name him Horatio.
Wife: Oh look, there is the Citizenship paper on my desk... first name... H... O...
Me: Don't do it!
Wife: R... I...
Me: Stop it! Stop IT! Go with Kai! KAI!
Me: A! You're spelling it wrong! It is HorAtio... you spelled it HorI...
Wife: There! DONE!
... some time latter...
Kids: LOOK! THERE IS MOMMY AND LITTLE HORATIO!!! WELCOME HOME LITTLE HORATIO!!!!
... see... THAT is how it is going to do gown. Don't believe me? Just go read the last 2 1/2 years worth of blog posts. *siiiiigh*
Until then... I'm holding onto Kai.
* = HEY, this is MY fast forwarded future! I can make it up however I want!
