Rejected Baby Names: Santa Francis

So it is Christmas Eve. There is still time to get all of your last minute gift shopping finished (or started) but Christmas isn't about that. I'd like to wish everyone the Happiest of Holidays, filled with friends, family and much joy.

Happy Holidays everyone. Thanks for tuning in and we'll see you next week.

Rejected Baby Names: Mrs. Santa Francis

It is a shame that Mrs. Claus doesn't have a definitive first name and that she is only known as "Mrs." Although according to "Mrs. Claus' full name is Jessica Mary Clause, her
mother picked her middle name after the mother of Jesus."

But Jessica Mary Claus Francis doesn't roll off the tongue any better.

Rejected Baby Names: Frosty Francis

I'm a little late in this week's boy rejected baby name. We had our office Christmas party at work on Thursday where I made a 25 plus pound Turducken (yummy!). I'm also in the final push to get the house ready for our new arrival, while trying to finish animation on our current episode of Raspberry Jazzberry Jam in order to have some proper time off over the holidays.

Speaking of holidays, they are almost here. This weeks boys name is based on the popular holiday character, Frosty "The Snowman" Francis. I've always loved this time of year and I'm looking forward to experiencing the joy of the Christmas holidays anew through the eyes or our new addition. It should be fun.

Rejected Baby Names: Goldilocks Francis

I think that I can be assured that this kid won't be a blond. Messy eater yes. Blond no.

Rejected Baby Names: Flaco Francis

I've been following a webcomic, Sheldon by Dave Kellett, for sometime now. Very funny stuff. One of the characters is a little lizard called Flaco who only says "Squee". As a baby name, Flaco Francis just does't roll off the tongue, that and my wife would never go for it. Here is a link to the webcomic if you want to check it out.

Rejected Baby Names: Leia Francis

I really liked Star Wars growing up. At one time you might get away with sneaking in a Star Wars name somewhere, but that was before the death of a franchise. Plus if you name a kid Leia, at some point in their life, someone will ask them to wear a metal bikini and that really can't be fun.

Rejected Baby Names: Jack & Jill Francis

I know siblings always fight and thats normal. I also can attest to the kind of damage that a sister can inflict and still get away with. I've never really believed that Jack "fell down".

DIY update

I'll be posting a double rejected baby name illustration on Thursday for those of you who are keeping track. Meanwhile, here is a progress update of our little DIY project. Above are a few snaps from the last ultrasound session. The First pic is of the baby's head in profile. The second is the baby's forehead with their foot pressed into it. The last pic is from an earlier ultrasound in September of the baby's nose and mouth.
