The Middle Name

No we don't have a middle name picked out for this child yet - heck we don't even have first names picked out! We're going to be in trouble because for me it's getting difficult to find the name!

Amy tagged me for this meme, which was a good thing because I haven't had anything to post for a couple of days! Guess I've hit a dry spell and was just fresh out of ideas of what to write about!

What's in a name?

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

For the facts:
D = Die hard Boston Red Sox fan
E = Eldest - I'm the first-born. Or maybe I should have said Extremely thrifty. I'm the big saver in the family and Joe is the big spender. That's why I control the checkbook! LOL
B = Brat, as in, military brat (my father retired from the Air Force).
R = Reading; I love to read. Give me a good book and I can sit for hours reading.
A = Answered to the nickname "Mimi" when I was younger.

For the tag:
D = Diary of a SAHM
E = Ethan and Lauren
B = Banana Migraine
R = Raising Joey
A = A Special Family

Shannon had a neat idea of something to do in memory of little Gabi called Pigtails for Gabi. There are some cute pictures of Gabi in pigtails so we're posting pics of our kids in pigtails in memory of Gabi.

Kayla won't be still enough for me to put her hair in pigtails, so I went to the archives! Here's an old one of Kayla in pigtails:

That's a cute meme. And I love the photo of Kayla im her pigtails. What an uplifting way to celebrate the life of another child. (I'd like to vote for Rose as a middle name!)

Jessica said...

Great meme, I'll get to it tomorrow!!

Sue said...

Very sweet. I added Kayla in pigtails too.

My girls both love that kitchen set. I do too - it will really grow with them!

Shannon **Gabi's Mom** said...


Thanks for posting it! Your site gets so much traffic, I know it will bring them rolling to mine. LOL!

Hi Michelle! Sorry I've been such a flaky friend, lately. I have been overwhelmed lately with responsibility and I'm just starting to check blogs again. I've been reading through all your last posts. I am SO sorry to hear about your friend, Gabbi. There is nothing harder than losing someone who brought you joy, and it's obvious she did. I will be praying for her family.

chelle said...

We are just getting to the "I will not sit still" for hair do's ... *sigh*

Neat Meme!

Sue "Sioux" Seibert said...

Love that photo of Kayla! And enjoyed the meme as well. Glad I'm finally catching up with my friends. How are you feeling now? Hope you're feeling great!!

O Mama Mia said...

Oh cute!
But I simply adore that pigtail pic of Kayla!

Beck said...

Kayla is the cutest kid in the world in that picture!
We didn't have a middle name picked out for the baby when she was born - oops! But we thought we had a few more weeks than we did.

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

I'm a sucker for pigtails. I just love them! Little girls and pigtails just belong together.

Fun meme! We always have a hard time picking out the names of our kids. Judah didn't have a name for 3 days! Poor thing, we were so surprised and unprepared by him being a boy!
We actually agreed on a name for this one already which is like front page news!!

Love, love, love the pic of Kayla in pigtails!! She is just too cute!

I enjoyed reading this meme on your middle name!

Omaha Mama said...

Oh I just love that picture! So cute!!!

And I love picking out baby names.

Some that we didn't use, that I still like:
girls: Sydney, Sara, Grace
boys: Brandon, David (we used it for the middle name), Jackson, Jack

You'll have to share if you start thinking of some (even though I have a feeling you won't share!).
