Baby Names

We are having an easier time coming up with a list of what not to name our baby than actual candidates. Some of them are tempting, but then some of them are just out of our late-night-we-should-just-go-to-bed talks. Here’s a few from the “nah” list:

  • Anna Lim (pronounced On a Lim)
  • Harry Lim
  • Tim, Jim, or Kim Lim
  • Llewellyn Lim
  • Luke Lim
  • Darth Lim
  • Chewbacca Lim (Chewie Lim sounds great!)
  • Yoda Lim
  • Wyatt Lim (sounds to close to how the girls say Violet’s name)
  • Ace Lim
  • Forest Lim (Lim means forest)
  • Nimrod
  • Ichabod
  • Butch

The towers you build with blocks climb higher and higher.

Happy 2nd Birthday Kadie!

Two years, too fast! I often heard from parents that their best advice was to enjoy their children now because they grow up so fast. Jenni also has a saying, “the days go by slow, but the years go by fast.” Here I am looking at my two-year-old daughter and thinking, wow, you did grow up fast!
