Wanted to Introduce myself...

Hi everyone!

My name is Melissa and I just wanted to say introduce myself since I haven't really had the opportunity yet. I don't know much about posting, but I'm slowing trying to learn everyday. I am married, my DH's name is Erik and we have a beautiful daughter named Eva Mackenzie who is turning 3 on Cinco de Mayo! We are now expecting our second on Oct 16th and we couldn't be more excited! I am hoping for a boy this time around, but I am finding that boy names are much harder to agree on especially when my husband likes these "warrior-type" names like Vladimir. (BTW ladies~ Vladimir is NEVER going to happen- haha)

I find out the sex hopefully first week of June, but I'm going to see if I can make the appt sooner since I can't take the wait anymore!

Looking forward to getting to know you ladies!

Aww come on now.. Couldn't you see yourself getting angry with your son and yelling VLAD!! Vladimir!! Get your butt in here now!

Haha, what a name! Hope you guys can settle on a less 'warrior-type' name for him if it's a boy! LOL

Haha Scilla, you're telling me! I think DH is hoping for a baby UFC Fighter-- because yes, he sometimes suggests names after watching a fight on TV. At least if it's a boy, we have plenty of time to find some common ground!

Thanks for the welcome Ladies! Smile

Welcome to October! I think VLAD would be fun to yell, just like Scilla said Wink However, I have to agree it wouldn't be my first choice. Good luck on finding out the sex and then finding a name!

Vlad just sounds so.... Vicious! If I heard a kid was named that in my kids class I'd instantly wonder if he impaled people....... LOL! Cause of Vlad the Impaler. Tell hubby he needs to get up to the right century, haha. Need century appropriate names!

The boys's name we've picked is after a Pride/Strikeforce fighter ... we like it because it is a much less common variant of a popular name.
