Baby #2 Names: Goes Well With 'Nigel'

So with one adorable big brother named Nigel, Ross and I have thought it would be an excellent idea to name his little brother something that would go well with it. Here is a list of 8 names that Ross and I like that go well with Nigel's name. They would be the cutest little boys on the block! Which they will be anyway because they're my boys. I have the name, the origin of the name, and what the name means for these ones. That is fun. By the way, Nigel comes from England and means "the champion." That's my boy!

1. Neville
New Town

2. Vincent

3. Alistair
Defender of the People

4. Desmond
Place name in Ireland

5. Hugo
Bright in Mind and Spirit

6. Tristan

7. Victor
Winner, Conqueror

8. Theodore
Divine Gift

I have made the poll on the right side of the blog! You may vote for two names if you would like. As always, have fun!

Christmas Lists

So Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat. I guess it is a good idea for me to list some things that my family members and I would like for Christmas. Makes things easier for those who are getting us stuff.

Nigel's Christmas List

1. car toys

2. dinosaur toys

3. books

4. Chutes and Ladders (or another board game that a child might enjoy)

5. Any toys an almost-3-year-old boy would enjoy

Ross's Christmas List

1. To see his wife and child happy (I told him people probably wanted to know things that he wanted but that was all he would tell me)

2. He would probably love an Al's Sporting Goods gift card. He loves that store.

Melanie's Christmas List

1. 39" King Sabre (quite expensive, but has a lifetime warranty)
Here's a link, it's the second from the top:

2. A Multi-Day Pass to Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience 2015
Presently 50% off... Here's a link:

3. This specific color guard equipment bag:

4. Avatar: The Last Airbender Book 1 on DVD

5. Avatar: The Last Airbender Book 2 on DVD

6. Avatar: The Last Airbender Book 3 on DVD

7. The game Bananagrams

8. iTunes gift card

9. Guardians of the Galaxy on DVD

Un-named Bateman Boy to be born shortly after Christmas

1. diapers, newborn and size 1

2. warm winter clothes size 0-3 months

Hopefully that is a good list for everyone who is wanting to get us stuff to choose from. I know that I am really specific in my choices of gifts. I've noticed that happening as I get older...
