Anxiously Awaiting, Slowly Naming.

I will be 29 weeks tomorrow, and have started to dream about our little girl! Last night I had a dream that I had her in a hotel/cabin and my whole family was there. Basically, they were in the way - making apple dumplings, watching t.v., etc. How rude. :) It had apparently been 2 days and the nurses still hadn't checked up on me, so I went to go find them. Guess I won't be having her at a cabin anytime soon. The nurses there are just too unreliable.
Anyway.
She was so cute. And such a sweetheart. And I'm getting so excited to meet her! There's been a lot more baby talk around the house, and Andrew has been finding babies in all his books lately.
With Andrew, we made a list of names and kind of whittled it down to a couple names and chose one when we saw him. It worked out pretty well for us, and that's kind of what we're doing this time as well. Pretty much our three favorite names right now are Colette, Emily, and Amelia. We like pretty, simple names, and these kind of seem to fit the bill!
So what do you think? Do you like Colette, Emily, or Amelia? Or none of them? We're basically going to name her whatever we like and whatever feels right, but I'm really interested to see what you guys think.

If I were to pick one of those names I would choose Emily. I love that name.

Aimee said...

What about Emme? It's like Emily, but not as common

I like all the names, but my favorite is Emily.

Colette! That is the coolest name ever. Classy, original, but not too weird, cute and catchy! But, you will know what you need to name her once you see her :) And one of those names will be perfect!

LOVE Amelia! That was on my list with Maya, but I had a friend with an Amela and thought it would be weird. Such a beautiful name though!

I like Emily the best. :D

I had dreams about Amy before she was born, too. :) Always made me cry. Well, lots of stuff made me cry, but you know what I mean.

I like Amelia best. I love the name Emily, but Sammie has like 4 Emily's in her class at school and they have to go by Emily B. and Emily V. etc. It's a very pretty name though.

I just thought though that you would have Andrew and Amelia if you did Amelia. Some like the cutsie name your kids the same letter and some don't. We are a fan- Spencer and Sammie. :)

My fav is Collette! ;) Beautiful and simple. and I think it goes well with Andrew... Good Luck Darlin!

Lori said...

How do you even choose from those options? They are so feminine and pretty! How about Colette Emily Amelia Jacobs? :)

Jill said...

I laughed right out loud when I read this. Apple dumplings! Ha ha ha! Don't you love crazy dreams like that? I LOVE all three of those names. I probably like Colette the best.

Sorry, I just got around to reading this. I vote for Emily. We thought about that for Jeanette but there was a cousin born with that name the month before.

Laura said...

I like Emily. Emily Colette? Or maybe the dream means you should take a page out of the celebrity book and call her Apple Dumpling Jacobs. Just saying....
