I feel like I’ve done the “new Mom” thing twice in my life. Once when I was young and completely unprepared for what lay ahead, and again over ten years later when things had changed so much I felt like it was the first time all over again. Whenever you have your children, there is a lot of planning to do and a lot of decisions to make. Everything from what/how you feed the baby to the baby’s name has to be decided, and it can be a daunting task! I love hearing how these parents worked out some of those big decisions before their special arrivals.
The names are always such a big challenge. My first child was a month premature and I hadn’t decided on a name for him yet. When he was born, I just instantly knew what his name was…and then later realized that one of the Moms I took my prenatal classes with had given birth to twins shortly before I had my son, and she named one of them Eric. I guess I was told that and I must have liked the name! Thankfully I didn’t know her outside of prenatal class, lol.
