Never underestimate...

Men. Just when you think you have them worked out... they'll pop one out, to surprise you! Or maybe I should say "Never underestimate a persistent woman?"!!!


I think we're about 80% there on choosing our daughter's name. I'm going to follow M3's example, and not tell anyone, we'll just announce it, and people will just have to like it!!! And don't go thinking you know what it is... coz you'll probably be wrong! And I did say 80% there (he said he didn't mind the name)!!!


You watch... despite our social worker approving us for a girl... we'll be allocated a boy, then the name drama's will start all over again!!!

On a different tact - 87 "Logged In" days before ours, to be allocated. Doesn't sound like too many! And it shouldn't take too long to get through IF CC@@ start allocating more than 4 damn days worth of files per month! *breathe in - breathe out* I'm sure it's very important to allocate as many children as possible pre-Olympics... this family would really really really really really like to be in China, pre-Olympics! And our baby wants us there too!

I'm sure her name will be perfect. I love the suspence.
Yeah only 87 more days! Sounds better than our 202 days. Hope to be able to say 190 and some buy next month.....

I'm REALLY hoping that they pick up the pace a little...Gosh, I'd be happy with 12 days per month at this point!

I can't wait to find out the name! I sure hope it's Lila...I sure hope it's Lila....I sure hope it's Lila! =)

Can't wait to hear the name. Going with Till at the Cougcamp. Sure hope you can tell us her name REALLY, REALLY soon.

Fun! I love a good surprise too.

Oh, and if you're referred a boy, we'll send you over our huge list of cool boy names, including the top-secret name we would have used if we'd been referred a boy. Yep, we had it all picked out since I was convinced at the last minute that we were getting a boy. :-)

I'm with you! Matter of fact, I hope I am with you in China being only a couple of days behind in LID.

Don't you be callin' that baby Gertruda Eunicopia now!

Keep working on him! He's bound to break soon! Even if you can get it narrowed down to 2 names, then you can wait until you have her picture and see which name fits her the best.

And thanks, I-Con, for stealing my baby name *hehe*

Hey, I "graduate" speech kids when they've reached 80%!! The name is already hers! Can't wait to hear it...

Jenn said...

Amen sister! If we get tangled up in Olympics for travel, we may not be able to afford to take our 2 oldest kiddos so we've got our fingers crossed. I had a dream the other night that they started referring full months out of the blue. It will never happen but a fun dream nonetheless!!!
