So when I went to pick up Savannah from preschool the other day, one of the afternoon teachers I hadn't seen in a long time (not her normal teachers) was saying congrats about the baby and then, in front of Savannah, asked "so have you picked a name yet?" Savannah suddenly pays attention and when I answered no, we don't have one yet, gets upset and says "Mommy! Baby sister NEEDS a name!" Uh oh.....sure enough she's been worrying about this and has now brought it up 3 times (basically daily) concerned that we don't have a name for baby sister yet....

And we're absolutely no closer to having a name today than we were a month ago...help! I told my husband apparently we're going to have to get serious because I don't think Savannah's going to patiently wait until baby is born to have a name selected

There's a source that will be tough to ignore! I hope that you guys are able to come up with a name you both like soon. You do have a lot of time, though.

Having a nameless baby is hard with older siblings. I did that last time, Tessa wasn't named until right before we left the hospital. Ugh. Good luck, I hope her names come to you out of the clear blue sky.
