Ideas...

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

I am having such a hard time thinking of boy names. I've had a girl name picked out for YEARS. Im all out of ideas for boys.

I like classic older names. (not like james or frank... I can't imagine that lol) But my son's names are Connor and Alexander.

Any thoughts? Thoughts for nursery themes too? Everything is the same... blah and boring. Sports or space or jungle... ugh. I'm so used to boy stuff I just want something different.

We have our early scan in a couple weeks so I thought I would start getting prepared! ha

I am working on my third girl so I had the opposite problem as you... For boys names I really like Simon, and Nathan or Nathaniel.

I am no help. All of the boys names that I like are super popular. If I had to pick a girls name, I would be clueless!

No help here. DH and I have been agonizing over boy names for weeks and have yet to come up with one. Good luck though. I seriously am beginning to wonder if we'll have a name for our little guy before he gets here.

Well here are some names for boys I let go as I sacrificed to let my boyfriend have a namesake if its a boy......

Ross or Reid

Other names I like for boys (not really sure if they're old names):
Cade, Bryce, Justin, Potter, Royce, Dylan and Tristen

As far as themes go, that's kind of hard outside of the categories you named already for boys. My son had a CocaLo animal/jungles theme but it was really cute and a little different than most traditional jungle themes.

Oh maybe do like fish/boats/sea theme thats all I can think of.

Hope it helps!

Here were the boy names we were floating around....

Milo (LOVE!)
Simon
Theodore
Isaiah
Bennett

Those were my "top picks" but we are having a girl so I get to avoid the boy name drama :-)
I hadnt put much thought into a theme for boys, but what you could do is look at blanket design (example - my mom does cross-stitch blankets) and then design a theme from one of those? That is what we are doing with this baby girl.
For our first daughter, I found a wall cling that I liked and then we kind of gathered bits and pieces that matched.

Thanks guys! We will see what happens! :)
OOO Bennett. I like that.

I actually like the idea of a nautical theme... ships and such. I feel like that's different.

If I have a girl all will be well. I have EVERYTHING picked lol!

Thanks again!
