The sweetness of trying to find the "perfect" name

Since we've been waiting for mei mei for well over two years, one might think we'd be completely ready. We're not. One of the exciting things about having a new addition is coming up with a name.

Coming up with Lindy's name was pretty painless. There weren't any knockdown drag out fights, tears, or hurt feelings which has been known to take place in other households. Lindy is STILL really into pretend play and naming things; therefore, she has taken a great interest in what her sister's name will be. For fun, I've asked some of her suggestions. She has taken it quite seriously and usually says something like this: "Hey momma, what about _________ as a name for mei mei? Is that the perfect name? Is it? Is it? Is it?"

Here is what she's come up with lately:

1. Lulu (this has been the one she's said from the start)
2. Petal-October 2009
3. Cupcake-November 2009
4. Muffin-November 2009
5. Candycorn-November 25, 2009
6. Chippewa-November 25, 2009
7. Sprinkles-November 26, 2009
8. Lindy-November 26, 2009
9. Mei mei-January 2010
10.Sweetie-February 2010
11. Little Popcorn Pop-February 2010
12. Sugar Heart-February 2010

Based on her name selections, it sounds like we better keep our good dental insurance!

As painful as this wait has been at times, it thrills me that Lindy has maintained such an interest in her sister.

By the way, we don't have a name selected yet and I can confidently say that I don't think any of these sweet ideas will make the cut. However, we've all probably heard the urban legend of the twins named Lemonjello and Orangejello (say it together with a French sound), so you just never know...
