      Congratulations, Sunforged, you finally saw the "cookie"!!  Having two little girls myself, I can say that it's the best!!  My husband was down on the floor earlier this evening playing "the Beast" (Beauty and the Beast) as well as Prince Eric - Ariel's love!!  He was playing with our girls, in case that wasn't clear... Just you wait...many princesses in your future!

      Best wishes to you, your wife and baby!

    Lisa HWposted 6 years ago

    Hey - excellent!  My how she's grown, eh?  With two sons and a daughter, I think both little girls and little boys are equally precious and beautiful.

    This has nothing to do with "pushing" my own writing (because - really - I only fool around with writing the occasional, less than great, poem); and instead it's only out of being sentimental to think about having a newborn baby daughter; but the following poem was inspired by my newborn daughter over 20 years ago.  (She's still every bit as precious   smile  )  I just thought you may like the sentiments (of course, maybe not the actual name in the poem): (The thing about having a baby girl is you learn how to be a giant cornball and not even try to hide it.  lol  )

    One gift I give will be your name.
    A classic name endures,
    and brings to mind stability.
    So I will choose a classic name.

    Self-respect and dignity -
    two gifts I hope you'll get from me -
    are messages your name should send.
    So I must choose a lovely name.

    Power, strength, and solid sense;
    but also grace and elegance,
    a name that you will not outgrow.
    So I must choose a perfect name.

    With how I hope you'll see yourself,
    with all the things I hope for you,
    and all the things a name should mean,
    there's just one name for you,
    Katherine Christine.

    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Thank you everyone!

    This is actually our third ultrasound appointment and the first time we actually get to know a gender...so we have been expecting to know for a long time, all the important stuff is good too, plenty of toes and fingers and all that.

    Unfortunately (for me) all the names I actually liked were boys names...so back to the drawing board on that account.

    We are expecting on june 22nd

    Don't forget that the 'diagnosis' of female is a diagnosis of exclusion.

    I think just under 10% of girls surprise their parents a little later on.

    My nephew was wearing pink for quite a while....

    Congratulations Sunforged, if she's like most "Daddy's Little Girls" she will have you wrapped around her little finger by the time she is born. And you will have a hard time saying "No" to her. big_smile big_smile  Best wishes to you and your wife.

    I love the name Izabella or Isabella, can call her Izzy, Belle, Bella, Iz, all for short.
    Just don't make her middle name ringing or she will be Isabella Ringing LMAO.

      would you believe im currently in talks with ex-IDF members who are considering opening an institute near me. I have offered web design and local biz promotion for a years training (for me)

      Dont know if it will pan out..but a little girl who knows Krav maga would equal a sunforged who sleeps well at night!

    Congratulations on a daughter. Baby girls are cute and fun to dress up. Teenage girls are cute, never wear what you buy them, and rip your heart out and stomp on it. Twenty year old girls remember how much they like you, and it all gets better again. And. Boy names work for girls. And. My girls loved martial arts. Girls rock. And they are smart. Best of luck to you. Namaste.
