Gilga...whaaa??

As much as I have loved the messages, phone calls, and overheard stories about the name Gilgamesh Methuselah... I've decided it's time to come clean. I thoroughly enjoyed the game though as most people know me well enough to know that it could have been a possibility (!!!)... well, Gilgamesh maybe, but Methuselah (?!) - all the work of my friend Jill (who has some GREAT posts up about her recent trip to Peru w/ Compassion)!

Choosing names was actually easy for us and at only six weeks along, we were done. Chandler was surprisingly difficult and this was the only boy named we agreed on -

Baby boy's REAL name is:

Paxton

Really?!?!?! I liked Gilgamesh Methusaleh much better. I would have bought you a really nice baby gift if you had chosen my name. I think my original suggestion was Methusaleh Nebuchadnezzar.

Maybe I should have another baby....

Now, now... I couldn't take your whole favorite baby boy name.

Paxton is lovely!!! You almost had me - I didn't think you would name him that but you never know... people do find names beautiful that I would ever use. Glad his kindergarten teacher isn't going to have to help him to spell it :-).
Have you got a middle name?
