Funny {True} Story!

I received a text from my mom last night. (Nothing significant there.)

Informed me they were eating out at a Japanese Steak House and another couple sitting at their table had two little kids, Carter and Madelyn.

Charles and my jaw dropped on the floor and we laughed!

You see. Carter and Madelyn {not sure which spelling we'll use though} are the names we have had picked out for almost a year now as our first picks for boy and girl! That's it. We have no other boy or girls names that we like. When we found out we were pregnant it was always for a boy, Carter and a girl, Madelyn. How weird is that!?!?

I asked what their middle names were as we are stumped on that! Mom didn't ask. A bit creepy maybe?? :-) But mom said the boy was 2 1/2 and the girl 6 months. Maybe we'll follow their lead and have our kids two ish years apart, starting with the boy? I'll take that! And then adopt two kids so we'll have an even amount and equal with biological versus adopted.

So any of you have middle name suggestions to go with those first names?? But one stipulation. The boys' middle name must start with an "A" so it will have Charles' same initials instead of using having a IV. :-)

I vote for Andrew too, then baby will have Charles' name without being a JR. I like Grace too, that and Joy! Madelyn Joy. (you have to spell Madelyn with the lyn....)
