Introducing Emmett Michael!!! I just had to tell you ladies first of our decision. I'm sure I will be ready to share the name with my DDC in a little bit. It's just such a big deal (for me) to choose a name....and acknowledge that I expect to meet this little man. It makes me feel closer to him, but at the same time, I feel more emotionally involved and scared that "something" can still happen.

Here's to meeting our little Emmett Michael! (Toast!)

Aw! I love that name!


And I know what you mean, I'm a little apprehensive about deciding on a name too because it will change things a bit. Not that I can pick a name yet, because we don't know the gender yet, haha.

Yay for picking a name!! It is a huge step for you I am sure. Kind of like actually acknowledging you will be holding him soon.

Super cool! Yeah, the name just kinda struck me and when we started referring to my belly as "Emmett", it felt right. I actually just "met" the first Emmett I ever knew a few days ago on Facebook....though long after DH and I had decided that name was probably the one. One of my old girlfriends from high school named her son that. It's not a wildly popular name which is why I liked it.

I hope you keep the name on your list too! (Well, maybe not if your little one turns out to be a girl...haha). Random thought, we loved the name Emerson but had to throw it out because more and more girls were using it....but the name has the same "idea" as Emmett in my opinion.

I understand exactly, Liz. My number one rule for a name is that it's not in the top 100 for the year! One of the reasons I liked that name too! I have a small list that hopefully we'll narrow down once we know the gender! I know what you mean about just seeing if it "fits" too. I'm happy you've found the right name for him!

It is such a great feeling having a name picked out, isn't it!! We have a first name but are going back and forth between middle names. I told DH he could pick it out and he said he had plenty of time and would know when the baby was born! I said, I don't think so... I can't wait that long!

Congrats again on the name! Very cute!

that's a great name! and congrats on agreeing on one early...we debated Savannah's into 3rd tri...i do think deciding on a name helps with bonding and making it all feel more real.
