We decided on Amber, but haven't as of yet decided on a middle name.

Amber is a pretty name! Amber Lynn? Amber Elizabeth? Whatever it is, I'm sure it will sound very nice!

Thanks! I'll let you know when we decide on a middle name...we are still kicking around a few different ideas.

That was cute. Amber is a good name. My best friend's name is Amber. Let us know if you need suggestions for a middle name or when you decide on one.

That sounded a lot like my mom, too. By the time #4 came along, she was just feeding, changing and bathing. My kid-raising method was pretty slapdash, too: equal parts hugging and kissing and swats on the butt. I, only had two but my brothers are all younger than me. I had a lot of practice, before mine were born. By the way, "Marie" goes well, with Amber. I wanted a girl, with my second one and the only name that we picked out was "Amanda Marie". When the OB said, "Its a boy," the first thing out of my mouth was, "Oh, $%#!, what are we going to name him?"

Just had to giggle...please, for your baby's sake, don't name her Amber Lynn. There was a porn star in the early 80's that went by that name (a take off of Ginger Lynn). OK, I hung out with mostly boys in high school so my knowledge base comes from hearsay, I swear!

It's cute and so true!

Haha! I actually DID know about the Amber Lynn thing...(my x-hubby used to watch pornos) and I decided there is NO way she will be Amber Lynn, not to mention my ex-best friends middle name is Lynn, so Lynn is OUT!!! :LOL:

Cindy...Marie is tempting...my mothers middle name was Marie.

Debbie, That's so cute! A lot of it is true, but I had four babies, and never got over being a hyper mommy, going back time after time to make sure the baby was breathing! One night I stayed up all night to save my baby from colic. He was sound asleep, but I couldn't sleep! How I envy you. I wish I could start all over again.
