I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

My Blog List

Hmmm... After a somewhat spirited discussion in the car after church today, and reading everyone's comments, it seems like "Erich" is at that top of the list! It's not my favorite (maybe closer to #4), but I do like it. Hmmm... Erich Sergei Taborn. Erich Mark Sergei Taborn. Erich Mark Taborn.

I like Gabriel best, but Mark hates it. He likes Peter, and I do too, but I'm afraid he'd end up "Stinky Pete"!!

Ugh! This is hard!!

...Hope to get word about an appointment date tomorrow!!!!!!

He totally look like a "stinky pete!" :) What about Noah? I can totally see him as a Noah. Have you though of keeping the name Simon? It really is a nice name for him--- once you see him you might feel the same. We are keeping Alexsei's name.

As the grandmother, I try to put in my 2 cents worth and have done so!! ;o) I DO like Simon but like Peter also. Eric is kind of ho-humish but I could live with it! Guess I'd have to!! HA! Bless Christine's heart! She sounds like a gift from God to those kids!!

Laura said...

Oh ya...why aren't you keeping him as Simon? I love it and it just seems to fit now that we've been thinking of him as Simon all this time!

Remind me why we don't like the name Simon....

If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
