So I am a nerd. I am having a hard time liking Hallie's name. It has bugged me almost since the time we brought her home. I loved it at the hospital, and everytime we talked about a different name I just kept coming back to Hallie. After we came home, for some reason, I just didn't love it anymore. iIdidn't want to mention it to anyone, because I thought they would think I was dumb. You can't just go change your kids name when they are a month old right? So I thought I would wait and let it grow on me.Well, it still hasn't totally grown on me. So now I am in a real dillema because now it has been five months. Is it too late? I don't know.
I don't know why I don't like it so much anymore. Maybe it is because people call her Hayley all the time or maybe it is because it seems everyone and their dog is named Hallie. I don't know what it is but I just don't love it anymore. So I finally mentioned to Ryan that I wasn't sure I wanted her name to be Hallie anymore. He just kind of looked at me and said, "are you Serious?" Then he said "well what do you want it to be?" I sheepishly said, "Ava". I say sheepishly because this was the name Ryan really wanted and I just wasn't keen on it at the time. So he just kind of laughed anad shrugged me off. I don't think he thought I was serious. But I am. I keep going back and forth, wondering should I or shouldn't i? Is it worth it or not? Will I not like Ava in a couple months too? If I change it, will I later wish I left it? Am I just crazy? I just don't know. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
I have started callling her Ava the last couple days to see if I like that, but its hard to really know because no one else calls her that. And Eli is SO against it. He told me he thought that Ava was ugly. So is that my answer? Leave it as Hallie becasue that is what the 3 year old wants?
I have decided I have to make a decision by January 1. So I need HELP!!
What do you guys think? Leave it as it is: Hallie Diann, or change it to Ava Diann?
My child's name is in your hands.
