Prompt 3: What's in a name

Probably the first major parenting decision you will make what to name your wonderful bundle of joy.

Some parents obsess over meanings, some will name baby after a beloved family member and some will argue day and night over the baby's name.

All I can say is Im really glad I had a girl because my darling husband and I bickered over boys names for awhile. He kept trying to be comical,,,,, even once mentioning during an episode of the Office that Dwight could be a good name........ yeah D'wight Rice..... lovely

This prompt is ALL about baby's name. It could be the meaning of the name, why you chose the name, or even just a pretty page showcasing baby's name. It could even be a crafty project you made showcasing your baby's name. Your project can be brand NEW for the challenge or something fabulous from the depths of your gallery. As always you must showcase a baby under 4. Top 10 will be published (fame & glory people).... and there may just be a PRIZE... stay tuned

*Note* My daughter's name in Hebrew means lilac.
Journaling in Hebrew reads " Lilach, before you were born, me and your daddy thought a lot about what name we should give you. We made a list of the names we loved and waited for you. Only a week after we came back with you we decided that the name Lilach, the name of a gentle and fragrant flower will suit you well. When we moved to United States we found out, as you know, that nobody can pronounce your name. So we changed it to Lila. But only in English. For us you always be our Lilach.

Love this challenge even though I won't get one made. lol, our life is totally upside down with our new grandbaby but I wanted to share this story. My daughter named her son, Robert Garrett for her two days. Her biological dad died when she was 2 years old, and his name was Robert. The middle name is Garrett for her stepdad who has raised her since she was 3.

Love these LO's, they are so sweet. All my kidlets are grown, fun to see such sweet little faces. I had a great opportunity as a young nurse to be a Nursery Nurse. I took care of all the newborns. Sometimes it could be stressful, and when you are in a nursery with that lovely plate glass window..LOL fishbowl! But taking care of sweet little babies, giving them their first bath, it was a joy!

Very nice site here, and great ideas for new Moms to scrap their little darlings photos and milestones!

Thanks for sharing

I loved what the design team did for this prompt. They are all splendid. I want to shout out to Kristen that I think your layout is very creative. It is one of my favorite pregnancy layouts ever!

I just uploaded a layout about the many names for Aubrey. I used an flash card and sticker letters to create the illusion of a wordle.
I also uploaded Welcome to the world Wyatt Lee and A Letter to Wyatt from Nana.
