You know what’s not fun?  Awakening to find your baby has croup.  But you know what IS fun?  Going to the doctor and discovering FOUR copies of Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, complete with an article and picture of yourself.  They interviewed three name bloggers, Abby Sandel of Appellation Mountain, Kristen Volksuil of Swistle,  and me, Elisabeth Wilbourn (sic — it’s actually Wilborn) of You Can’t Call It “It”! on baby name trends and advice.  Let me tell you, when you know you only have a few sentences to sum up your entire philosophy on something you have spent the last five years writing about, it’s not easy!  But I really enjoyed the end result and hope you will too. On a side note… my fellow blogger both mentioned the name Reid in their short blurbs.  One spelled it Reid and the other Reed.  Coincidence, or will we be hearing much more of this name in the near future?

NEW HERE?  I do the Facebook and Twitter thing, and sometimes comment on things there that don’t get a full post.  And (mostly) unrelated to the subject of names, I’m an avid Pinterest user.  You get to peek inside my brain there!  If you like what you see there, you might want to consider reading Apartment Therapy, where I am a regular contributor.

    Drat! I had a faint glimmer of hope that I was going to find out Swistle’s kids’ names for a second there :( Great article. I love all three of you <3

    Maybe not, but I did reveal my second daughter’s full name publicly for the first time! Small consolation, I know. ;-)
