Hi Duana, We are expecting Baby #3 in early 2015!  Our son's name is Timothy, and our daughter's name is Anna.  The boy's name is decided - it was set the last go-round (Henry Xavier) - but we are having some trouble with a girl's name.  My husband wants June, but if we do use it, we'll likely use that as a middle name. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I don't know the sex of the baby yet, we are still too early along.

Hi Sasha, My question is this: if you have a close friend or a relative who works in a fee- or commission-based industry, are you obligated to use him/her for their service? For example, if my brother is a real estate agent, am I obligated to buy a house through him? Or if a good friend is a hairstylist, am I obligated to go to her? What’s the thing to do? Suck it up for the sake of the relationship or do what you want/think is right? Thanks T ___ The adage “don't go into business with friendship” exists for good reason because there will always be two major issues at stake – friendship and money. Full Article

Duana Names: Middle Names Are Like Summer Camp

Duana Posted by Duana at January 19, 2015 19:47:51 January 19, 2015 19:47:51

Hi Duana, My husband and I are expecting our second child - another boy - this spring. Our front runner for baby # 2 is Nolan - likely to be the eventual winner but I don't like officially naming a baby until it's here. I'm a little perplexed by middle names. Neither my middle name, nor my sister's have any significance and my parents were never given middle names by their parents, but ended up just picking one themselves. Full Article
