20 weeks! And a naming contest!

Today marks the 20th week of my pregnancy. I am huge. And healthy. And hungry. I am in the process of making a human, for those of you who are new to my blog. I do this. I make humans. Gestating a human is not something I would recommend to those under a certain age or IQ level. Producing a human should be HARDER to do. Harder, at least, than getting your driver’s permit. It should require a test, too, at the least, don’t you think?

No need to adjust your settings. It's me.

No need to adjust your settings. It's just me.

Regardless, the gestating part is an amazing process that requires a versatile wardrobe and 40 weeks of vast amounts of freakishly weird and diverse foods. This week, I have grown out of two pairs of maternity pants, and two bras; and I’ve consumed more meat than I had all of last year, a jar and a half of sweet gherkins, a quart of grapefruit sorbet, 3 grapefruit, probably a pound of instant mashed potatoes, and three-fourths of a chocolate cake.

We’re obsessed with names right now. Or, at least *I* am obsessed. Allen has vetoed the following awesome names I came up with : Sky, Micah, Corbin, and Devon. He likes Owen. Aren’t my names SO much cooler? So, it looks like I need some help!

Send me more awesome names! The winner of the coolest baby boy names contest gets to, errr, name our baby! And we will publish YOUR name right here, on mothermirth. For all 20 of my readers to see! Think of the prestige, the honor….

    name him Benny PLEASE!!! If I had a son that would have been his name…don’t you just love it! Hey Allen…..Owens get beat up in school, Benny gets ALL the ladies!!

  2. Catling says:

    OK, here are various names I like:
    Jared
    Jasper (will probably use this one for my boy, if I ever have one)
    Shane
    Zachary

    If Allen is into names like “Owen” I dunno if any of those are going to work for him, but that’s my list. 🙂

    Owen sounds like a growth.
    Chance
    Timothy (Terry’s name if she had been a boy)
    Andrew (old Reynolds name)
    Reynolds (Rennie)
    Sky is cool
    Charles (after a neat grandpa)

  4. Michelle says:

    I like Corbin. Sky and Micah are too feminine and Devon is WAY too popular right now. How about Nathaniel, Samuel, Cooper, Marcus, Jonas?

    You know I am fond of Dexter. I’m not sure why but Dex Holt has a cool strong sound to it.
    Here are some others that I like that my husband vetoed:
    Gustave
    Jed
    Levon
    Oscar

    I like the names you picked out! Also, I kind of think that if you grow it, you should get to name it. (My boyfriend agrees that I can name my children anything I want. As long as “anything I want” is “Hellbat”. This is why I will not be having his children anytime soon.)

    Other names to which I am currently partial:
    Malachai
    Osiris
    Samir

  7. OK, “Hellbat” is kinda awesome. Allen wants to name him David Owen, so that his initials will be “D’oh!” My 5 year old picked “Rockstar P” or “Manhole.” I like Malachai a lot. Hmmmm.
