Party Party

It's party time again over at 5 Minutes For Mom! Last year's was a huge success and I can only imagine that the Ultimate Blog Party of '08 will be bigger and better.

The party is officially UP!


So, come on in!


I'm Stephanie, and I write about my Adventures In Babywearing among many other things. I don't wear my youngest at all anymore (unless you count the fact that he is constantly climbing on me), but I am carrying around a little bean in my belly (see the little floating baby to the right) due this September. I am 12 weeks along now and still have no belly to show off!

I have three boys- Noah, Carter, & Grayson- and we're still not sure if we're going to find out early or be surprised with this one!

Oh, and baby names! We have no names picked out. Be a doll and leave your suggestions in the comments!

There's a giveaway going on at my blog here until next Monday March 17, too!

I am a freelance writer for NWIparent Magazine and also write the blog Close To Home for the NWIparent website.

I love to knit and so of course have a knitting blog, too. Oh, and if you are on Ravelry, look me up! I'm BabywearKnittery. I review products now and then at the totally awesome Mama Speaks (be sure to bookmark it as we always talk about the latest of everything and have something to win almost every day!) And I am also a contributor at the Chicago Moms Blog. (And I am making a confession there today about my birth plans.)

Yeah, I know. I must like to blog.

I am trying to think of a fun party game to play, but am not that creative at the moment. So, if you have any odd or fun questions for me, ask away and I'll try to answer them all during this party week!

Enjoy the parties! And don't forget to leave your baby name suggestions!

Back to Adventures In Babywearing.

I'd love to win any of the fabulous prizes at 5 Minutes For Mom's party! Here's my top 5 faves:

-The Bead Dangle Photo Tile Necklace from Elemental Memories
-Gray would be in love with the Black and White Rocking Horse from A Rocking Horse To Love!
-$50 Gift Certificate to Magical Wonders
-12x12 Custom Wall Canvas from JuJu Beane Boutique
-Moby Wrap from Christine at From Dates To Diapers...and beyond!

  4. Stephanie,

    Our site 5minutesformom.com is down right now!!! I'm so sorry if you're trying to get your link added to the Mr. Linky.

    We are so upset, it went down just before we could press publish on the post and we are waiting for the hosting company to fix the problem.

    Our sincere apologies to you and everyone else who is reading this right now.

    It is 3:00 AM EST right now... Hopefully it'll be up soon...

    ReplyDelete
  5. Thanks so much for partying with us! We are soooooooo sorry that we are down. We in shock about it!!!

    As for baby names what about Olivia or Jackson? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  6. You sure do love to blog! Congrats on your little bean. My daughter's name is Eliza (like Eliza Doolittle) feel free to steal it if you like. How did you get into freelance writing?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love the name Claire. So sweet.
    I read you all the time, and am finding wearing my over 20 pound 9 month old really...really hurts my back. They grow so fast!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like Emma for a girl.

    Yesterday, Kelly at kellyskornerblog.com told her baby names that she has picked out for when she has one. They were both so cute. Boy-Hudson Walker and Girl - Harper Brown.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Since I am done having kids I will tell you my names. Boy: Saxton Tate
    Girl: I have my two favorites already used for my girls but if I had another girl she would be Brynn Lee.
    I am so glad I stopped by to find out that the blog party is done. I was getting frustrated.

    ReplyDelete
  10. how about makayla or mckenna for a girl for a boy kieth or toby

  11. I had no idea you were involved in so many different things! You are Super Blogga Mama!! : )

    My favorite girl name right now is Lillie/Lily and I love Jacob/Jake for a boy.

    Happy Blog Party!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Whew I'm so relieved! I thought it was just me that wasn't able to get on their site. I really enjoy your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love Oliver and Rosemary.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just to let you all know, we are trying to get our hosing company to deal with our problem. We can't believe this is happening and we are totally distraught and devastated!!!

    We will be announcing a new "start time" as soon as we get live again so that everyone can have a fair shot to get their links in.

    We are sooooo sorry!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You are a busy, blogging mama!
    When our son was born the girl name we had picked out was Megan. I love that name. And Natalie too.
    For boys? Lately I like Issac.

    ReplyDelete
  16. You know I love you, girl!!!

    Ok, I have to throw out Rebecca for a girl's name since that would have been the name we would have used for a girl. Now a boy's name, hum......I'm lost!!!

    Lori

  17. It's so nice to meet you - congratulations on the bean in waiting - as far as baby names go, I'm not a very good person to ask. I named all 3 of my girls beginning with the same letter. Not a good idea. I holler. Wrong name. They laugh. Anyhow, at least I was smart enough to name The Boy different. Still mess it up, though. Anyhow. Thanks for having us and enjoy the rest of your week!

    ReplyDelete
  18. IS it that time again already?? My how time flies!!
    My sling giveaway is up this morning too!
    As for baby names, I wish I could help. I'm 7 weeks out & we still are up in the air. EEKK!!! Here's hoping we come home from the hospital with a named baby! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really like the names Claire and Anna or Anne for a girl. My daughters name is Lillian. Boys names are harder for me. My sons name is Isaac. Picking out names is tough for me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hmmmm...baby names:

    Girl:
    Addison
    Kyleigh
    Cale

    Boy:
    Brenner
    Cade
    Jax

    Hope these help...of course the boy name I'm most partial to is Jackson, because that's my little one's name...but you could totally use it if you wanted too! :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. i love addison from haley's above. of course, i shouldn't start off with a girl's name... just in case! ummm? i like conner and preston (kinda stuffy, huh?) hmm... i don't know. boys names are hard!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Boy:
    Jakob
    Isaiah
    Elijah

    Girl:
    Hannah
    Rhiannon
    Brianna

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very nice to meet you!!! I love your blog and my very NON-bloggy sister has been here many times as a fellow babywearer!

    Since I have 6 boys (therefore had to come up with 12 names heehee) it would be a lot easier for me to share my beloved girly names with you: Emma or Emmalyn or even Emmaleigh, or there's Anna or Annalia. There's also Hannah and Ruth and I could really just go on and on forever LOL!!

    Blessings to you during this pregnancy!!!

  24. W00t! The Blog Party is on! Congrats on the pregnancy! I love being surprised, so of course I think you should go that way. We found out by accident this time (the u/s tech didn't ask if we wanted to know!) so that was kind of disappointing. Anyway, Happy Blog Party!

    Visit my party at http://usr-bin-mom.com. I'm celebrating my 8th blogging anniversary and having a giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  25. PS, we have LOTS of baby names to suggest if you like Irish names. Mine so far are: Aryanna, Aoghdan, Seamus, Hamish, Sinead, and Aisling. For this one we picked Roisin or Diarmuid. (Obviously we know which one we are using, but we're not telling yet!)

    ReplyDelete
  26. LOVE the picture of you! Party on! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. You're entirely too cute!!

    Congrats on the pregnancy. I have no baby name advice though. :) It's such a personal decision!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Congrats! I hope you have a girl and name her Emma Elizabeth!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My husband and I had a hard time deciding on name, so I don't think that I would be very much help.

    It is great that you love to knit, I'm a crochet gal, but would love to get into knitting also. I'm waiting for my ravelry invitation.

    It was great to find your site!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like Karis and Olivia for girls names...Karis is Greek for Grace..the biblical term for the Grace Christ gave when he dies on the cross...and for boys well there are James Timothy and sam.
    I like pretty traditional names.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nikki Angels of HeartMarch 07, 2008 11:15 AM

    hmmm Baby names. Well you could have one of my children names. lol Jessica, Sara, Vallie, Brett, Brody and Todd.

    Vallie is the one I get a lot of comments on. Its not short for Valerie. Its and old Pennsylvania name. This was her grandmothers name and her grandmothers grandmothers name.

    Nikki

    ReplyDelete
  32. More power to you! We are swamped with our 2 kids! We did a lot of babywearing back in the day ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wouldn't be much help with the name suggestions but I hope you get a baby girl this time! I also pray for a safe and normal delivery!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice to meet you. Looking forward to the belly pics soon.:-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great Party Steph.
    My 2nd pick name for Little Man when I was PG with him was Seth Connor. Since I"m done 4 is my limit I'll toss that one out there for a boys name and Alivia Rose for a girl.
    If you get time stop over at my party, Hope to see you there.
    KC

    ReplyDelete
  36. Still waiting for that baby bump, huh? LOL. I am so jealous. By the time I am 8 weeks old people can already tell. By 5-6 months along, people start asking, "Any day now, huh?" and at the end I am asked, "Are you having twins?" When I say "No.", their eyes get all big and they ask, "TRIPLETS?".

    Strangely enough, I always have small babies, and all at least a week early. Go figure!

    For baby names, I can only suggest some of my favorites (all of which I have already used). I am out of names myself, should #10 come along.

    Girls:
    Audrey
    Adrienne
    Gabrielle
    Miette
    Natalie

    Boys:
    Alexander
    Anthony
    Shane
    Reagan

    (Shhh...I don't usually use their real names online.)

    ReplyDelete
  37. i think i've been to this blog before. :) you sure do a lot more then i do. xD you must be constantly busy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. First, congrats on the new baby! For boys we love the names Alexander and Jackson, a couple girl names I like but we didn't use yet are Noelle, Zoe, Paige and Ashlyn.

    I so want to learn to knit. I sort of learned the basics on my own with a book, but really need to sit down and work on it.

    Come visit my party post if you get a minute! Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the names of your boys now. I have a Noah, too, and we had picked out Grayson for our 2nd boy but he turned out to be a "she" :) I hope you get a little girly-girl. I would love to help with names when/if you find out! :) I love your blog and have visited before. Hope you have a nice party!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Steph - I love your site. I've visited before and will bookmark it now. For baby names...I like unusual ones...how about Xylie or Malea for a girl and Lex or Jax for a boy?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, I'm completely and utterly out of ideas for girl names... :) But our current favorite boy name (if it ever becomes an issue, LOL) is Elijah.

    Great party post - and congrats on your stroller win!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. OOOOH, Baby names! I love baby names...

    Lhynnae was my college roommate, and she had a great name.

    Riley is my current favorite boys name, after Alexander, which BOTH of my best friends stole (one named their son Alexander, the other named her daughter Alejendra, so Alex is Right Out if and when I have another child... but you can still use it)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've seen your name around the blogosphere...just wanted to stop by and say "hello".

    Congrats on #4...how 'bout a Colton?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Aidan and Cameron are both great boys names. And Heather is perfect for a girl. Oh wait...those are my kids' names! Please join me at http://mom2ways.blogspot.com/2008/03/party-time.html.

  45. Hi!
    I like Lily, Emma, and Elliot for girls (my husband nixed them all when we were name hunting). And Rider for a boy.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am here all the time, but thought I would say hello:)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Isabella was going to be my girl "go to" name...but since I just have a boy...Im OK with giving it up.

    Nice to meet you! Happy partying! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Stopping by to say Hi! Sorry, my mind is blank when it comes to names. I didn't decide on my DS name until a week or two before he was born.

    -Heather

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congratulations on the pregnancy! I had a girl name picked out for my son, and he ended up not liking it too much, so I went with the boy name I had chosen.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh...for a girl... I love Morgan or Grace. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh I love baby naming...

    Except when my fiancee and I have babies they will most likely have Japanese names...

    Although I do love Shanes suggestion of Grace!

    If Japanese names are ok then I like saki, mia, maya, midori, Asuka, Aya, Ayumi, Emi, Kaiya for girls

    And for boys, well I like Rio, Hiro, Shota, Tomo, Kai and Taiga! Amoung others!

    Enjoy the party!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Congrats on your pregnancy! I have no baby names to offer but wish you lots of luck. If I ever have a third child I will be very interested in the babywearing concept. (My first two children are twins...is it possible to wear twins?)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I've visited your blog before, but it was fun visiting again! So many amazing blogs, so little time! Congratulations on the new little one on the way. How about Nolan for a boy and Alannah for a girl? (I just love those names.) :)

  88. My kinda mama! I knit and I wear the Toddler ;)

  89. Steph, I love your blog and enjoy your musings here at Adventures in Babywearing.

  91. i'd love to suggest names to you, but we didn't even have a name for my 4 month old til he was a day old. and my husband's the one that thought of it!! (i do have a 1,001 baby names book if you want it though.)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love your blog! You already have such beautiful names for your children! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the newest. I'm an old fashioned girl, myself. I like "Eli" for a boy, and "Julia" for a girl. Very nice to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Baby names are something I am trying to come up with at the moment too, lol. I am due in July. Congrats on the baby:)

    ReplyDelete
  97. Oh I also love the name Miriam for a girl! (Meer-ee-um)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Oh, find out the gender! A forth boy name will be difficult to pick out. We had a lot of trouble with the second boy name, although I could come up with dozens of girl names.

    I've been here before, but always enjoy coming back again. Happy party.

  103. Thanks for invite! I love to read your blog from time to time. Well, all of your sons' names were on my top 10 list so we must have the same taste. I have b/g twins (Lauren and Logan). Here are some of my suggestions: Brayden, Cooper, Ethan, Audrey, Anna, Madeline. P.S. My party post is up~

  104. Baby names are tough, both my children got their names so differently. Our son's name came to me in a dream and our daughter's name is both of our fraternal grandmother's. Although I didn't use Kali, I have always loved it for a girl (didn't match the last name) and Peter is a good strong boys name that we didn't use either.

    Congrats on the new bean and hope to stop by again.

  109. Hey Steph! Good to "meet" you once again! I need to swing by here more often. Congrats on the impending re-mommyhood! "Lundie" isn't too bad of a name - I certainly haven't met too many, that's for sure!

    Have a great day!

  118. Hi! You've got a great website, I am a babywearer and like to read about your adventures.

    Congrats on the little bean.

    Baby names...

    I like the name Rose for a girl. I love the name Owen for a boy.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Glad you're feeling up to partying (even if it is virtual)! The baby name game is so tough - at least in our house, baby Boo still doesn't have a middle name - but I'm sure you will come up with the perfect name for your little one by the time he or she arrives.

    Enjoy the party!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Hey! I enjoyed checking out your site. Congrats on you pea pod:) I love the name Lydia for a girl (but my husband doesn't), not sure about a boy name though.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Gosh, has it been 12 weeks already? Time is flying! But, I bet all that icky feeling gunk is about gone...yahoo!

    Have fun partying this week Steph!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I'm due in September too!! I'm 13 weeks right now :) I'm trying to avoid the whole baby name thing here right now... we're constantly changing our minds or hating what the other chooses lol. I'm bookmarking you, so I can come back more

    ReplyDelete
  123. Congrats on the bean! Good luck knitting and babywearing and blog partying - and getting the toddler to stop climbing on you. ;) Nice to meet you!

    Party on!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I just learned so much about you that I din't know. How fun.
    You are a busy gal too!
    baby names....hmmm
    Tabitha is a favorite and my first babies name.
    I love Aaron for baby boy..
    We are at the party too!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I have stopped by here from time to time, but it has been awhile! Congratulations on your new little one on the way! :D

    We had trouble agreeing on names with our two girls...especially our last one who finally was officially named just an hour or so before I had to leave the hospital!

    Stop by my party if you can!
    Blessings,
    ~Tammy

  126. Love your site! And kudos to you on going for #4...I've got 3 now and wonder some days if I am plain crazy!

    Hmmm...baby names? I'm partial to last names as first names...

    Boy - Tucker
    Girl - Sofie

    Thanks for the party!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Congrats on your 4th baby. As for names I can give you my children's names Airlie and Mason. I also like Ava, Zara and Blakeley. Sounds like you also do a lot of fantastic writing too.

  129. Congratulations on your coming "bean". As for baby names, I love the name Solomon and Sarah. My grandaughter is named Stephanie, it is my favorite name.

    ReplyDelete
  130. So I arrived here and thought, hmmm, this looks familiar. Turns out I had been here before, loved your blog, forgot to bookmark, and of course, not been able to find my way back! Good thing you hosted a party, I'm so glad to be back...bookmark this time...check!

    If you want to party at my place, you can head on over and find it here!

  131. You can use Lexi, my sister in law just stole it from me by naming her Leap Day baby Alexis.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I love baby names almost as much as baby wearing. ;) My Finnegan is still a wrap baby at nearly one and more than 25 pounds. I do have to admit that I'm getting a little worn out by the added weight, though.

    I love to knit as well, but I haven't really posted many knitting entries yet. I'm forever waiting to finish the second sock before I write, and I have a major finish one sock and move on to a new project problem.

    My favorite baby name for boys right now is Jasper. Yeah, it's an old guy name, but it's cool and fairly unusual, which I like. If Finn had been a girl, he was going to be Harper, so I like Erika's idea. :)

    ReplyDelete
  133. what a great blog Stephanie! And I loved visiting your knitting blog, I'm an aspiring knitter who has the the blankets and scarves down, not so good with hats and sweaters yet! I am in the process of making a bib using sugar n' cream cotton, and it's turning out quite nicely. Wonderful to absorb all that drool you should knit some for the new baby. Anyway as for names I love Jaina for a girl - for a boy I like Jason, but since you already have Grayson, probably not good. I also like Luke. Stay safe and Healthy!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Love the name of your site and what a cute floating baby! LOL

    I like Savannah for girls

    and

    Caden for boys and girls

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hi Steph!
    A few baby names I am in love with:
    Girls:
    Samantha Alaxandria
    Samantha Rose
    Alaxandria Rose

    Boys:(note boys names are harder for me to think of)
    Zackary Ray
    Jackson Lee
    Not sure if you like any of them but wanted to put these out there for you!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Hello Stephanie! It's nice to meet you! I'm a "J" name freak! LOL I love the name 'Jordan' for boy or girl and 'Jillian' also for a girl - I've never had any girls! Hope you're enjoying the party!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Thanks for hosting a party! I have you bookmarked already, but wanted to stop by and partake in the party!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Great post!
    Cute names for your children! I love Noah! My hubby and I are adopting and actually my party post has baby names as a main topic, we have a few names under our hat and they have to stay there cause every time I say one outloud someone hijacks it! Uggg.
    I just really want to chose a name that is not common, but strong and pretty at the same time.....such a perpetual conversation I have going on in my head. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  139. Stephanie, Congratualtions on your pregnancy, I am 13 weeks 3 days along due 9/11.

  143. Wow, you are a busy woman with all of that blogging!

    As for baby names, I love the name Malloren for a girl, I don't like the meaning (it means laurel of bad luck) but I think the name is unique and beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Hmm ... names ... well, my only son already shares a name with one of your sons, so I don't have much to add there. Although William pops into my head when I read the other three names!
    Girls - Elizabeth, Abigail, Sophie, Isabel, Emma, Lilly are some of my favorites =)

    ReplyDelete
  145. Great to be back here. Enjoy the party.

  147. Hi! I have seen your name all over bloggy land for a long time, but since I have no babies to wear, I don't think I've frequented your site before. So I just wanted to meet you and say hello. Have a great party!

  148. congratulations on your fourth little one!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Wow! I never thought I was going to get to the end of that comment list. I can't believe all the baby name suggestions. So, it looks like other people took my suggestions, so I'll just say Shawna for a girl. Yeah, that's my name, and I would love to pass it on. It doesn't really sound good to say Shawna Junior, so we won't be using it again here. I also like Brianna. But, for boys it needs to be something strong. Maybe a Jack. Your party was fun!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Great picture! Congratulations on your newest addition. Hmmm names? That is such a tough one!

    ReplyDelete
  164. Hi again... sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm Jen, not David (husband).

    ReplyDelete
  165. I tried to go with unique names when I was pregnant with my youngest. We decided on Chase. Our small town has 3 Chases one grade apart. They are known as the girl Chase, the boy Chase, and the Chase from Russia. So go for common names, since everyone is going for unique- Mark, Michael, Jonathan, Matthew, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  166. congrats! I also love Amelia for a girl...though Emma is a close second. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  167. I have three boys too. They keep you busy don't they! I love the names Eden and Leah for a girl but I'll probably never get to use them.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Hi from a fellow Moms Blog writer (I'm on the SV Moms Blog). I'm glad I joined your party...happy partying around the blogosphere, and hope you have time to drop my mine (I'm hosting a magazine giveaway!).

  169. Hi, nice to meet you. I have 3 boys and 2 girls, looks like you could be right behind me in kid amounts. Congrats on the new little one. I have a Noah also. I love Grace for a girl. Jillian is also one of my favorites. Good luck, name picking is hard!

    ReplyDelete
  170. I think you got a lot of great names. I will just add Isabella, because there's this great book coming out..... (okay, see through that shameless self-promotion), but anyway - this book is my new baby (after three the birth canal way) and you can find more about it (and me) over at my party...

  172. Hi Stephanie,
    Congrats on your newest 'little bean'.
    We just had our third (a boy) in November. We have the hardest time with names. I LOVED Nicholas; he LOVED Brody (Broderick)and the name goes to...Carter (go figure). It fits him perfectly. So, Nicholas or Brody for a boy. If Carter had been of the pink variety the name would have been Audrey. Our girls are Sarah & Emma.
    Have fun at the party.
    Blessings,
    Kim

  177. I have a little on eon the way. It is due June 26th. We opted not to find out what dender it was. We have a couple names for boys, but not any for girls yet. Sorry I can't be of much help in the baby name department. I am wrestling over what we are going to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  178. love the pic. ;) Baby names were always hard to pick out, course we gave each three names and not counting the last name.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Hi, just party-hopping and wanted to say hello. I'm afraid I won't be much help in the name department. We never had any rhyme or reason to our name picks. Just what we liked and both agreed upon! LOL

    Drop in and say hello!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Hi! I'm visiting blogs for the party :-) I LOVE knitting and writing as well. I have not done anything with writing, other than blogging my thoughts out to the universe :-), and I have been toying with the idea of freelance writing.. I'm not sure how to get started however.

    I'm recently finished knitting some baby leg warmers for my LO :-) I'll have to consider putting up pictures of my knitting projects because I really enjoyed looking at yours!

    I love your boys' names... with names like those.. I'd think for another boy : Landon and for a girl : Cecile

    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  181. Congrats!! I am expecting my first..and I don't know yet the sex..so I have picked out a girls and boys name...altho it isn't set in stone...I am only 15 weeks so I have alot of time to change my mind!! Ok...girl is Presley...and boy is Preston...and if its twins...well once I get over the shock..it will be Presley and Preston!!
