So I guess I need to vent. I have been becoming more and more irritated with certain people. I call home frequently, about 2 times a week give or take, and it seems every time I call home someone has a new name picked out that they would like me to use for the baby. This doesn't really bother me it is usually more humorous than anything.
What is annoying is one of the first questions they ask me after "how are you doing" is "so have you settled on a name yet?" Now normally this wouldn't be an issue since... well I havent had the baby yet... but seeing as how Ryan and I have had the same name picked out for well over a year now and our decision to use this name hasn't wavered in the least in that amount of time you would think they would just accept the name and move on.
Now if the name that Ryan and I have picked out was oober trendy or just way out there... then I could understand my families hesitation to my commital of such a name. But the name is rather tradition and sentimental at that.
So this brings me to all of you and my lovely blog... Honestly ... is Olivia Mae really that horrible of a name that my family would spend the last 7 months trying to find something "better"?
It isnt that I really even care what other people think of the name either... When I told my dad what name we had picked out he said "Well that is a pretty name... do you like it?" I said yes and he replied with "If you like it then I like it and that is all that matters."
Sorry for venting I am just getting tired of explaining a few times a week "Yes, we are still using Olivia... No we have thought of any other names... No we are not changing our minds..."
Does anyone have any suggestions or advice or words of wisdom?! Because I am so beyond over feeling like the name I have picked out is weird or not good enough... I even dread calling home because I dont want to have to defend the name I picked out. It seems like everyone else in the world loves the name but my family.
Anyhow... I need to stop talking about because it just gets me more and more irritated.
Seriously though words of wisdom would be great right about now.
