It’s a boy Mrs Walker, it’s a boy…..

Last Wednesday it was finally time for our 20 week scan. It’s been a long nervous wait, and even though the baby started kicking a couple of weeks ago my nerves weren’t settled until I saw the little heart beating away. Everything was checked and measured and all was ok, yay!

And it’s a boy!

So now the search for a name has started, both me and my husband like traditional names and when I was pregnant with Elisabeth we decided quite quickly because I always wanted my daughter to be called Elisabeth (which was the middle name of 3 much loved family members, my nan, auntie and cousin) and it was the only name my husband really liked. Easy peasy.

This time we have 4 favourites to choose from, I’ve been through a whole baby names book and couldn’t find any that I like better than the 4 we have. Luckily we both like all 4 of the names, although we both have a different favourite. It’s funny how you don’t really know whether you like a name until you say it out loud.

It’s clearly also been on my husband’s mind who had a dream that we called him ‘Napalm Newman’!?!? I don’t think we’re going to go for that though 🙂

  1. Congrats – glad all seems to be going well.
    Love the Who reference.
    My vote is for Larry. It is an option right?

    1. Thanks, it was the first thing that popped into my head when they said it’s a boy and I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head ever since.
      I did consider Larry, but it didn’t make the final 4 I’m afraid.

      1. Oh wow. Well, at least it got considered.
        Btw, I saw The Who perform the rock opera Tommy. It was great.

      2. I’m jealous, that must have been brilliant!

  2. Congratulations! I’m so very glad that things are progressing so well!

    1. Thanks Kate, we are so relieved and it’s nice to finally get proper excited about it all 🙂

      1. I think that the fear and trepidation that you and your hubby have to contend with those first several months would have to be killer and I’m so impressed with both of you! And yes – I’m glad that it’s time to get excited about it! Little boy!! Little boys are awesome – so different from little girls.

      2. Last comment came out wrong!!! Different from little girls, but both are awesome! Just in different ways!

      3. Ha ha, I know what you meant. Be great to see the differences between them and see how they get on together.

  3. So happy for you… When we were expecting our third child we had a name all picked our for girl or boy (back then you didn’t know until birth)…. and when our daughter was born all of a sudden we didn’t like the name we had picked out … and changed it on the day she was born… don’t know why… Diane

    1. Thanks Diane. I guess sometimes a name just doesn’t seem to suit when you actually meet the little person.

  4. Congratulations, hopefully when the little one is born he’ll look like one of the names 🙂
