Show & Tell...oohhh, baby!!

I'm linking up for another wonderful week with Becky over at "From Mrs. to Mama" for Show & Tell Monday...and this week we are talking all things baby...yay!!  So...I'll list the questions and share my responses....and if you haven't already - head on over and link-up and share in the fun!!


1.  Tell us your favorite baby names.
 
Girls:
Olivia
Avery
Clara
Sloane
Cora

Boys:
Landon
Jack
Cam
Carter
Peyton

Side Note:  Don't expect any of these to make the final list when it comes to the hubs and I choosing a name in the future - we couldn't be more different in what we like...so it will take quite a bit of convincing for any of these to make the cut...


2.  Show me your dream nursery.


Girls:



Boys:


3.  How many children would you like to have?  How far apart?

uumm...how to answer this?!  ok, so if you'd asked me before we actually had Addie I would have told you the number was 3...no exceptions, no questions asked.  Now...I really don't know - the hubs and I have agreed to take it one at a time and know that we'll know when were done.  No, not like Duggar style or anything like that...I'm not sure we'll even make it to 3.

4.  Tell us what you think the importance of parenting is.

Not to sound cliche...but parenting is giving your child roots...so deep that they know right from wrong, have a desire to leave this world a little better than they found it, treat others with respect and compassion, and always say "i love you."  And then giving them wings...so strong that they can build their own lives on the foundation of everything you taught them.



5.  Show us your favorite newborn photo.

Seriously...next time I'm totally doing this...I die at the cuteness of this pic:



6.  Tell us some things you promise never to do as a parent (and if you are a parent, did you stick to it).

No video games...none.  Will they play them at their friends houses?  Yep.  Will they beg me and grovel at my feet?  I'm sure.  Will I give in? No.  I won't get on my soap box about what I think video games have done to society...I could write a whole post on that...and they are here to stay... but not in my house.

That picture is awesome! And I read that quote abt listening to the small stuff awhile back. It has stuck with me and I try to always be attentive when the boys want to tell me something. Stopping by from the link up!

Love Love Love the name Olivia! And for obvious reason the name 'Jack'...AND that baby photo is so cute! Totally agree with you on you stance on video games...I can only hope to be as steadfast as you when the time comes to say 'no'.

My girls name is on your list, love the name too :) and the newborn photo is cuuuuute!

Cajun Cowgirl said...

That is such a cool picture! Loving that Momma!

That boy's nursery is great too, but I have to say that my favorite part of this post is that you put an "e" on Sloane. My husband loves the name and I told him I will not name a baby girl that without an "e" to which he disagrees!
