Baby Post

First of all, y'all came up with a LOT of W names-22 of them! These were the W names you came up with and believe it or not, no one guessed our name. :)

Wyatt (by far the most guessed!)
Winston (Win)
Wilbur (ha!)
West (cute!!)

Should I keep it going by giving you another hint? I think so. The second letter is "e". Any guesses? I think some of you were confused and thought we were announcing we were having a boy. We won't find out what we are having until mid-October. I don't have a feeling one way or the other. :)

Okay, moving on. Believe it or not, I have already gotten some baby gifts! This has been so fun! This photo album is actually the first thing I have bought since I found out I was pregnant. No, I didn't get it at a flea market but of course it was on sale! It was actually 75% off at a book store.

You might have to zoom in on this cross but I love it!! One of my best friends, Christina, gave it to me. A bird! How perfect. This is one of the first things I will be hanging in the nursery.
Katie's mom gave me this cute toy and soft white blanket. I love baby blankets!

My mom gave me this little froggy lovie. It is so soft!

Katie gave me this birdie burp cloth. It says, "Tweet Baby". She knows me well! I actually bought this frame probably 2 years ago. It has part of a Bible verse on it and says, "I prayed for this child." I prayed I would have a picture to put in it one day. I can't wait to use it!

I am a lurker that just LOVES your blog. My guess is "Wells" for your baby name.

It immediately came to mind because I have a friend that just named her baby boy that.


Kelly said...

Love all of your stuff! Getting baby gifts is SO much fun!! I'm so excited for you!
Can't wait to find out what you are having and what you name the baby - I know it will be so cute either way!

Is it Weldon or Wentworth? just guessing, so fun!!

Christina said...

It's so hard to avoid buying baby stuff. I bought a blue blanket for my new little blessing (I am 15 weeks) soon after I found out I was pregnant. Baby stuff is so fun to buy!

Tori said...

I love reading your blog and think its funn that you are giving hints!! Could it be Weaver, Webb, Welch, Wellsley, or Wesson?

3LittleByrds said...

I'm gonna guess Wells as I've seen that in our nursery where I work several times and love it. The other guess is Werner. This is fun.

Lisa C said...

My other guesses have been taken already, so I'm going with Webster. Although, I really like Weaver (Tori's guess).
I'm pregnant, too, 10 weeks! Picking out a name is so much fun! Love you baby stuff!

Jennifer said...

Love all of your stuff. My guess is Wesley or Wes.

AdoptedbyGrace said...

How 'bout Welsh? or Welch? You seem like a good English girl to me! Ha.

julie & joe said... guess from me. I didn't get to pick out a first name because Aaron was almost 2 when he was placed with us for adoption and I felt like it was part of his identity. We did change his middle name to my maiden name.

I hope you are feeling well!

bethmorgan said...

I'm delurking to say Wells or Webb. Can't wait to find out! Conrats on the baby too!

Jeni said...

Wendal? Just wait baby and stuff will take over the house. Wait until they turn one and then you will have toys everywhere! For a few years we had two tables in our dinning for eating and a Thomas the train one for playing's all so much fun.

April Pantall said...

Cute finds! And they'll work for either a boy or a girl. I'm going to guess Weston :)

Larissa said...

Hi there, I'm lurker who enjoys reading your blog. You have inspired some of my home decor. Congratulation to you and your husband!

Nikki said...

That is a lot of guesses, so I don't know what else to add. Can't wait to hear if it is a boy or girl.

Shannon C said...

I'm guessing Wells, Weslyn, Weston, or Westlyn. So much fun! I kept my baby's name a surprise. It drove everyone nuts, but it was so much fun. So happy to hear you are expecting.

'The H Family' said...

you have been getting some cute it all!!! wow...i'm going to have to keep that list of boy names in case we ever have another one. there were some cute ones listed...i like west toO!

hi-d said...

Fun gifts!

Okay...I love the guessing game. I went online to and looked up boys names that start with the letters, 'We' and here's what they had. (I removed the names that were already listed that you nixed.) Here's what was left:

Wes (I doubt you'll use this, since Wesley wasn't the name)
Wess (See above comment)
Wessely (See above comment)
Westbrook (Probably not, beause "West" was a no)
Weston (Probably not, beause "West" was a no)

It's cool looking up the meaning of names, as I have a feeling you already of done this. Hmmm....I'm thinking based on that, you will go with:

Wedan (God has heard)

But I like this name too:

Welford (meaning "From the springs") It would sound very good with your last name.

Thanks for letting me write a book! This was fun!

hey shannon! i think you told me your baby name w while ago at a halloween pumpkin carving party and i cannot remember it for the life of me!!

kimberly (from de queen)

Darlene said...

Good grief I never even realized there were so many "W" names!!! I don't have any guesses....I'll just have to wait and see.

Adrienne said...

I'm the Mom of a Wesley, so that would have been my guess. I am partial to "W" names. Congratulations and I love reading your blog!

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing Wendell (but I hope that's not really the name) :)

Katie said...

Okay so I was guessing "Waylon" (as in Waylon Jennings) the other day when you said "W" for a boy's name. Hahahahahaha! But now that you've said "We-" hmmmm....Webster, Wellsley, Wellington, Wesley, Wexford, Wendall, Wells.....what a preppy list I've come up with. I cannot wait to see what y'all are having!!!!!! I hope you are feeling well. I think and say prayers for you all the time, Shannon! SO EXCITED FOR YOU! (And just so you know, Waylon is still up for grabs...)

Jennifer said...

I thought Wells, too! :) I cannot wait to hear what name you are thinking about. After all this by name talk, you will probably end up having a girl! Haha!
I love all your sweet baby gifts. That's so fun!

Lana said...

I can't wait to hear the baby name! This is so exciting!

The Chubby Dove said...

Ha ha These ladies are going crazy trying to guess that baby's name.

I love all your new baby stuff and esp the frame with "I prayed for this child". He gives us our heart's desire, doesn't He?

Hope you're feeling great today!

Lindsey @ Harpserville Home said...

Getting those first gifts is so amazing! It makes it all seem so much more real! :) And as for a guess...hmm.. Werner? Wendell?

Alex and Jill said...

Oh how I'm going to love following your pregnancy!! :)

Love all of your goodies!!


honeysuckle said...

My guess is Weston.

Ally0005 said...

Well now you did say" It also has a "W" on one side which could possibly be the first letter of our boy name" Guess that is why we all picked boys names

I say Wendell or Webster or Wendy for a girl.


9405018--Pat said...

My guess would be West......Congrats...Pat H

Brittany said...

Cute! You got some great stuff! My mom bought Rhett an elephant lovie and he still sleeps with it every night! Your little one will love its lovie! Can't wait to hear what name you guys have picked if it's a boy! Also, I would like to know what name if it's a girl!

Ok, I give up on trying to guess but I'm loving Wells, Webb, Wesson, & Weaver. Maybe I should have another just to pick a name - nah!

Tina said...

I want to guess the name SO bad, maybe Wells? Weldon? or Weaver? Weaverly would be cute!!!
Love all the kids! Enjoy this time!!!

Emily said...

I am gonna guess Weylin as a form of Waylon... I had Waylon picked out for a little boy, but then found Lincoln.

Jen - Balancing Beauty and Bedlam said...

It's just so, so, so exciting to share this with you. What a blessing, and wow, what a special family that baby is coming into. :)

Rikki said...

My guess is Webber. Love your blog!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Phillips Phamily Mama said...


Mandi @ Finding Home said...

Wendy? Weatherly? Weber? I can't wait until you reveal it!

Mary Virginia said...

So excited to hear you are having a baby! Congrats to you and your husband! My guess is Weldon or Wells - those are the only two "We" names I could think of that weren't mentioned in the list you posted. I am really liking this guessing game!

Sharon said...

ah - love guessing games - here are some attempts:
Welby, Weldon, Welford, Wellington, Wells, Welton, Wemilat, Wemilo, Wen, Wenceslaus, Wendell, Wenlock, Wensley, Wentworth, Werner, Wes, Wescott, Westbrook, Westby, Westcott, Westleigh, Weylin, Weymouth

Ahhh... I am sure there are more out there;) but just thought I'd consult the online baby name site:)
Am a stranger from Australia who loves your blog and am pregnant with our 4th - and in search of baby names, too...

May the Lord bless you and your family!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

How fun! Just can't wait to hear what your boy name!

I'm so happy for you!!

Sunny said...

Shannon, what a blessing that there are people who are so excited with you that they are already giving you gifts! You are loved. I have no idea on the name, but I know you will have a precious name picked for a precious child. Thank you for all of your sweet, sweet comments and prayers. I've needed them.

Natasha said...

Congratulations!!! I have been away too long! I am so happy for you! The gifts can never come too early ;)

Alyce said...

Iknow you are soo happy..what joy you have! I didn't know you dealt with infertility and I am happy that God has answered your prayers. Is the name Welch (pronounced welsh)?

Angie said...

It is so fun to get all kinds of cute baby stuff! I have a feeling you'll get tons!

Richella said...

Welch, maybe? My husband's paternal grandfather was named James Welch. When one of his daughters had twin boys, she named one James and the other Welch.

Now I'm wondering what your maiden name is. Webster? Wells? Webb?

So glad you're feeling well!

Anonymous said...

Wellington?? I think that was it.

A Hint of Home said...

You are keeping us guessing! How fun. Can't wait to actually read it.
Your gifts are just precious. So happy for you.

Jennifer said...

I just saw that you're pregnant! Congratulations! I cannot WAIT to see how you do your nursery!!!

Looking forward to finding out if you're having a boy or a girl too!

Jennifer said...

My guess is Welcome, or Wendy, maybe Wednesday?? Endless choices really!!

Linda said...

I was going to guess waylon--which I love but the e cancels that out. Seems as though the e has been thoroughly researched. All I can say is PULEEZE don't name your baby webster. wentworth is nice

Creekmore's said...

My Tyler's middle name is Wesley, so that's my guess. But I think I remember you saying it was a more unusual name. I'm so excited for you. Can't wait to hear what it is.

Anonymous said...

Is it Weylon or Weldon?


catherine said...

"Congrats"-so exciting....
My guesses would be Wentworth,Westaway,wendin..mmm tricky so many the best..
Hugs Catherine

Amy Seever said...

I'll guess just plain 'Wes'?
Or Weinerschnitzel? Or does the "I" before "E" rule apply?? Wenton?

Fabiola said...

Baby things are so cute!!!
