Not long now Bumper

This post was written on its stated "publication" date but was kept hidden until after Lucy was born as we wanted our choice of name to be a surprise.

Next Thursday we are due to be a family of four. And yet we still haven't got names sorted out!

We toyed with Ruby, then Emily Rose but we have come back round to our original plan of Lucy Anne.

But for a boy we are at sixes and sevens. Hayley has always liked James. Oliver was nearly Oliver James before we settled on Oliver Steven. But we have also given long consideration to Harry and to William. I realised I really want something very English or something biblical. Last night Daniel made a late surge to the front: Daniel James is probably still leading by a nose.
