    I dread if the next baby we might or might not have is a girl. My husband and I do not agree on baby girl names at all. Boys were fairly easy for us, but girls. Ugh. I only like vowel starting names and he only likes names that start with consonants.

    Thanks for linking up at the Tuesday baby link up last week. Hope to see you again this week.
