My Favorite Baby Girl Names Within The Top 1000

Deciding on a baby name can be a pretty difficult decision, at least it was for us.  Personally we prefer names that are a bit more unusual than what you would find in the top 100, but also not so unusual that they are ridiculous.  Well I’m sure some probably think some of our children’s names are ridiculous,  but those are the parents that name their kids Jane or Bill…not that there is anything wrong with those names.  They just aren’t our preference.  Here are some of our favorite girl names that can be found among the top 1000.  Let us know if you like them… or if you don’t. What are some of your favorite girl names that would be considered unique?

Dad Needs to Lose Some Weight

My name is Steve and I am the dad of this group.  I’ve had high blood pressure and high cholesterol in the past, but in recent years I had gotten it under control by eating a healthier diet.  We recently returned from vacation, where I didn’t eat so good, and after a visit to the doctor, I’ve learned that my numbers have crept up on me again.  I have nine children that I would like to see grow up, and I’m sure they would like to see me stick around as well.  I’ve tried diets here and there over the years, but never seem to stick with them for more than a month or two.  My job is pretty sedentary, so I don’t get up and move as often as I should.  Over the next few months, I am going to document my progress and provide frequent updates on how I am doing.  I currently weigh 195 and really should be closer to 155, which is a weight I haven’t been since high school.  I am not going to do any type of fad diet.  I am simply going to try to exercise each day, and eat healthy by cutting out the saturated fat and bad carbs to see if I can lose the weight.  In addition to just getting healthy in general, we also have family pictures scheduled in July…and I need to look good for those.  I will be tracking how much I exercise and what I eat, as well as inches lost and the amount of weight I am losing, so please be sure to follow along.  Hopefully by putting this out here for all to see, that will hold me accountable to stay on task.  I am getting to the age where heart attacks happen, so there is no more delaying.  Of course, this will start on Monday…because all diets must start on Monday.

Fun With 9 Kids

Thank you for taking the time to visit us.  As you might imagine, it can get a little crazy around here.  We have 9 kids that range in age from 1 to 20, so we have seen it all.  At least I say that…until tomorrow when something new and unimaginable will probably happen.  It is always loud here, and new messes are being made while this one is being cleaned up.  We get asked all the time how we do it.  We also get asked if we know what causes that.  If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked that…well let’s just say we would be quite rich.  Back to how we manage with all these kids.  Having a lot of patience is key, but also staying organized, and having tons of fun!
