a name for baby

Adam and I haven't spent a whole lot of time thinking about baby names. So many people have offered suggestions, which I listen to none of them. But I have also been told that we need to come up with a name for baby to use in the mean time. I have just been calling baby "Baby", but that is not very creative. I also don't want a nickname that is gender specific. Yet, I keep calling Baby a he, and that really makes me want a gender neutral nickname until Baby comes out. I've loved the ideas that friends have used for their babies, and I need to come up with something as great at theirs!
We have started talking about decorating Baby's room. Adam wants to paint the room blue with clouds and stencil in trees. :)
My hair is growing faster on the left side of my head than the right side. It is making me keep my hair in a ponytail most of the time. It's subtle and probably no one else would notice unless I point it out to them, but I know that it's goofy, so ponytail it is. Hopefully my wonderful sis-in-law can come visit soon and fix this ridiculous problem.

I didn't call my baby anything but 'baby' until d-day (except during his sessions of super-activity when I called him 'kickin-wing'--we might have been eating chicken when that came up, I don't remember.). We didn't know the sex but thought chances of a girl were higher than normal. Still, we called my belly a 'he'. When d-day came around I expected the doctor to say we had a girl, but nope, we had a boy.

A well-meaning nickname will give you peace of mind until d-day. Get creative but let it come naturally; you may choose name but forget it when referring to 'baby'.

I think you should call baby something having to do with the Grateful Dead. Just an idea...We called Austin Big Bird and I think Jack was Elmo? Or maybe that was Andrew...we like Sesame Street characters!! Those kind of have gender, but they're puppets, so we didn't really think about that I guess! Hope I helped!

Hi Seeree! Your baby news is all so exciting. My nephew was known as Bubbles since his first scan, and we still call him Bubbles and he's nearly two!
