So before we found out Lil Dude was a dude we referred to him as Baby Fluff. Then we found out Fluff was a boy...so Lil Dude it has been. The unfortunate thing is that we can not continue to call our son Lil Dude (although there have been stranger/more bizarre names out there) for the rest of his life. We just can't agree on a name. At. All. We can agree on the fact that his middle name will be Michael, after Joe's dad. But that's as far as we've gotten. I LOVE, love, LOVE, LOVE the name Roman. Joe's great-grandfather's name was Roman. It's just strong, unique and very Ukrainian. It's important for me to have a name that translates into Ukrainian. My parents, grandparents are Ukrainian and like my parents did with my brother and I- I will be calling our son by his name in Ukrainian. I was not "Natalia" at home...but rather "Natalka".
Annnnnnd Joe hates it. So we've been trying to come up with other names and have not been able to agree on one at all. I just know that he's not a Benjamin, Tucker, Evan or Ryan. Does that sound weird or make sense at all? I feel like I already know my son & those names do not suit him. I have a feeling that it's going to be Lil Dude for a while. Sigh.
Today I am 23 weeks! Close to being 6 months pregnant...so crazy! I have TOTALLY POPPED. I thought I had popped before and ohhhh no. He's going to be a BIG BOY! Check it out:
Can't wait to meet my Lil Dude in August!
