Be careful what you ask for

Jaime asked me to give her baby-2-b a nickname. Full well knowing that the first name we gave E (Dunk) came from the Urban Baby Name Book and a scary game of Baby Name Roulette. I may have neglected to mention in the earlier post that when we did it for a girl's name, we came up with JaLit. Jaime probably wouldn't have asked if she had known this.

She indicated that she is having a girl, so I went scrounging for the book. With a laser pointer to guide me in the baby's bedroom. It is only a matter of time before Jaime realizes that one would rather try to read 45 book titles with a laser pointer than awaken a baby that has been moaning for the past 12 hours and has finally gotten to sleep by some method only known to his father.

So what was the name as we closed our eyes and flipped through the pages? Constantina--which means Loyal. I think we should call Jaime's precious girl "CC" until she can come up with a name for her. I wanted to flip again, but D said that was against the spirit of Baby Name Roulette. Sorry Jaime.

Christina also asked for a nickname, but D and I have yet to create a name/symbol for her in the spirit of Prince. She will be known as (still unknown), formerly known as Christina. LOL

Constantina (CC for short) it is... your hubby is right - can't go breaking the rules. :) I like it - even though I'm completely laughing out loud. ;) Thanks!!

Our 3rd child was called "Po" until she was born - it was short for C3PO since the 1st 2 children had names that started with A and B.... i.e. A1, B2, C3. I think we should buy her a Teletubbies Po for her to always remember her pre-birth nickname.

BTW, I love CC, but if I knew you, I'd never trust you to do baby name roulette for me!
