What's In a Name

Well - I was hoping to start school next week - getting all geared up - and I get this YUCK virus going around. Fever, cough, congestion - the whole respiratory mess. Yesterday, my oldest son, came to me and said he didn't feel well - which I could have told before he even said a word just by looking at him!! And this morning at 4 am - I hear, "Mommy?" But this was a very small DEEP, throaty voice!! Yes, now Chloe is the next one down at our house. So - I have nothing exciting to post except we all want to feel better. This is a yucky bug - I've had it since Sat. and still do not have much of a voice!

So- what do you do when you are sick? Well blog, of course, and I found this website in my wanderings. This is quite a hoot! Babynamer is a site where you can type in a name and they will tell you the normal stuff - origin, meaning, pronunciation, etc. But my favorite part??? They will tell you drawbacks to the name - YES -if you've never thought of a nickname to call someone go here, you'll have a ton to choose from. (I don't think I'll show my boys!!!! They may torture their sister!!)

Sorry you guys aren't feeling well...Lily and I are kinda icky lately too!

That website is too funny! Lily's nicknames made me chuckle, although we have called her most of them at one point or another. One I hadn't thought of: Lily Vanilli!

You're right -- it is a hoot. I liked it so much, I linked back it (and you) in my post today!

Hope you guys are all feeling healthy again soon.

Sorry you are sick. We have it too! Maybe we have the same thing!

Anyway, thanks for the babyname site. I'm going to check it out right now. We're still deciding on a name. We have at least 2 years to mull over it though! LOL

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
