Byron’s sister!

Just a quick announcement, Little Byron is now the proud older brother of:

Claudia Therese

25, June 2009 7lbs, 5 oz. 21″

Very pretty and Mom & baby are doing well.
Just thought I’d toss that out since I just found out. 🙂

I hope everyone’s having a lovely summer so far. Be back very soon.

Happy Memorial Day to all!

So there. Enjoy your BBQs, picnics or potlucks. I’ve got a BBQ planned for tonight but am kicking back and relaxing. Reminiscing about the Vets in my family, My Uncle Jim, a Vietnam vet, My Pop, an Air Force vet (he was in before Vietnam, was married with a  kid on the way when it started so he got left out, lucky me!). Grandpop was in the Navy for WW2, My Aunt May was a WAVE.  My OH was an Army guy for 10 years but is thankfully home safe and staying home these days.  I hope you & yours are Safe & Happy today.  🙂

 

So I was being weird yesterday  and posted a poll at BtN, Thinking about a few names specifically that I like with Josephine. Here’s what I posted, and the total # of votes each got, following:

Josephine & ? Which would you like to see most?

Josephine & Helen: 8
Josephine & Frances: 13
Josephine & Violet: 22
Josephine & Elinor: 8
Josephine & Cecily: 18
Josephine & Jemima: 11
Josephine & Imogen: 7
Josephine & Winifred: 11
Josephine & Ottilie: 12
Josephine & Edith: 6

 

What do you think of the final outcome? Which would you have voted for (it was a pick all you like poll) and tell me, am I still crazy for loving Ottilie and wanting her in first place?  Talk to me, tell me whatever you think, I’d love to hear! 

Garner/Affleck Baby!

Alright, so I’m a bit late getting to this myself. But I wanted to say Congratulations! to them here as well and to state unequivocally my vote for their new daughter’s name is Beatrice.     It fits all the criteria they said they were looking for, familiar, not super common, nothing trendy and fits so well with big sister Violet! Since they didn’t release a name right away, methinks they might be a little undecided, just as I was with Josephine!
Anyone else have any ideas for what they should name Violet’s new sister? Post ’em here!  UPDATE!  

According to People.com  baby girl Affleck is  Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck.   I feel bad for Violet now, she only got one middle name!  And while pretty, it seems quite OTT next to Violet.  I’m rather hoping it’s something else entirely.
