So Tyson (my little brother… by 11 months) and Vanessa are going to have a baby!! Its going to be a boy!! I am so very excited!! I can’t wait!

So in having a baby… you obviously have to give the baby a name! I think names are really fun and actually like unusual names especially since my name is pretty uncommon! However there is most definitely a line between what is an unusual name and what is a just down right ridiculous name. Tyson and this line became very well acquainted! =)

First he wanted to name the kid Raphael… like from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
My response: oh geez!

Then one day I came home and as I’m walking in the door Ty goes “Hey Kei…. what do you think of the name Galileo?” (100% serious)
My response: “A name for what?”
Tyson: “For the baby of course…”
Me: “oh….. yeah NO! I thought you ment a name for a cat or something… No definitely don’t name your kid that!”

But probably one of the funniest name stories is when my mom and I were mentioning Levi as a name. After all it is his middle name and it a cool name too!
Tyson’s response: “Well… If I was going to name him Levi I would want to go with the FULL name… which is Leviticus!” (again…100% serious)
My response: …………………….. Almost fell out of my chair laughing!!

Oh man I love my brother!!!!
And in case you are wondering the name they are going with is Ezekiel Loren Bates… which I LOVE!!! =)

I can’t wait to be an auntie!!!
