Now that I've been through it more than once, I can say it depends on the child. But, it's toilet training that's killing me!
Each child is just so very different.
I always wanted a big family but I was a single mom to one boy for many, many years and thought it would never happen. It's absolutely crazy, dramatic, and intense sometimes, but so is the love!
Michael David (20 y/o) - two biblical names that I liked and David was his dad's middle name.
Aaron Tomas (5 y/o) - Aaron was a name both hubby and I liked and Tomas we also liked and represents Aaron's hispanic heritage.
Freedom Tyler (3 y/o) - Freedom's name is quite the story! My husband and I have always been passionate about civil rights and we searched and searched for the perfect name for him because unlike the previous two children, I found out that he was a boy via ultrasound, so we could really concentrate on the perfect boy name. But, either the person we would be naming our son after just didn't represent what we wanted or we didn't like the name. So, we were struggling to come up with his name. One night I had a dream that we named our son Tyler Freedom and it was so crazy that I didn't even tell anyone. Weeks later we were driving out of town and I told my husband and he reversed it and when he said it out loud...that was just it!
Samantha Grace - Always thought Samantha was one of my favorite names and when I paired it with Grace it just flowed perfectly. Samantha is also my husband's sister's name but she really wasn't named after her.
Jackson Alexander - That was a real compromise. We really wanted another name to represent who we are and we just couldn't find the name or concept that both hubby and I liked as a name for our child. So, Jackson is for the county he was conceived and born in. Alexander is the name my hubby picked. I had narrowed it down to three names for him to choose from.
