Because you all want to know…

December 29, 2009

GIRL! (Eli’s name suggestions so far: Bacon, Ice Cream, Poopy, and something along the lines of Gzhijyw. Really. He spelled it.)

    How wonderful! As a Libra I like things balanced out, so two and two is perfect AND I’ll finally have a chance to buy something girlie for a change! Hope you’re feeling well and getting some rest whenever you can.

  2. Julie says:

    Yeah, I am all about the balance too. I really like that we’ll have a matched set.

    I’m actually feeling so totally normal right now that I feel bad for ignoring the baby inside. Also I am tending to look down at my belly and think, “What the hell is THAT?” It’s still a bit of a shock.

    YEAH!!!! I knew it! I voted for a girl – Sarah comes to
    mind – maybe because that is the name I want!! Sarah C.Falatko
    sounds pretty good to me! Get ready – here come the names.
    How lovely – really. I am so happy for you and your family.
    GUESS the “C.” xo

  4. Julie says:

    Well, I can’t figure out what the C stands for, since Teresa starts with a T… 🙂

    Lala — Lala Siegel Falatko.

  6. Julie says:

    Ha, Elizabeth! I did already suggest Fifi, but it was Family Vetoed, with the pointed remark that having two girls named Zuzu and Fifi is crazy. Same might go for Lala.

  7. Corinne says:

    Thats the only “problem” with having a Zuzu… i quite like Coco, or lulu etc…but then it sounds like we are training signing gorillas or a tribe of clowns.

  8. Corinne says:

    oh, how rude of me….big congratulations on the baby girl.

    YAY!!!!!!!! Everbody has a brother and a sister, and I really don’t know how much better it can get than that.

  10. sarah says:

    And I guess I have to double on the Sarah, as long as it’s spelled with an “h”, of course.
    Don’t you dare name her Rylee. or Madison. or Brooklyn. Not that you would.

    I read Eli’s suggestion of Poopy as Poppy, which I think is lovely. And not that you asked, but my favorite name is Evelyn, which could be shortened to Evie. Zuzu and Evie. Congratulations!

  12. Christina says:

    I initially read the Poopy as Poppy too (although I suppose that indicates that Poppy can too easily go the other way!) What about Matilda- you could call her Tillie. I like Sarah too- I think that goes really nicely with Eli and Henry- but I think you have to match more with Zuzu than with the boys’ names.

  13. Corinne says:

    so, if you actually go with something like poppy- don’t think that i am imitating you [in some sort of creepy blog follower way] if we have another girl, that is on our list…

  14. Julie says:

    I do really like Poppy…I like all the flower names: Poppy, Lily, Iris, Violet, Azalea. Also the spice names, like Ginger and Pepper and Caraway (and also Poppy again, I suppose). And the bone names, like Tibia and Ulna and Patella (ok, just kidding about those).

  15. Julie says:

    Corinne, I’m totally cracking up about training signing gorillas. Seriously, Zuzu and Coco sound like the new pandas at the zoo.

  16. Christina says:

    My good friend’s daughters are Chai and Sage. At first I wasn’t sure about it when she told me they were naming the first one Chai- but it suits her beautifully. So I like spice names. Fiona is cute too- Fiona Falatko.

  17. Kate says:

    I would love for you to use one of my favorite girl names since it looks like all we have around here is boys! I love Daisy. It’s a bright and happy flower name that puts a smile on your face (or at least my face!).

  18. Robyn says:

    Julie, hurray for even kiddedness! How’s about Ella Maeve? Ella Maeve Falatko: uptown but still sounds slightly Clampett, my favorite kind of name. Poopy for short, for the East Coastedness. Poopy will drink her martinis very dry one day.

    baby name wizard suggests Lydia – which is really lovely with Henry, Eli, Zuzu – plus you get to sing about the Taaaatoooed Laaaady.

  20. Anne says:

    Lydia was my girl name, which I didn’t get to use.

    My name suggestion of the day is Simone. Pretty, but also strong.
