"Our Name Is Our Virtue"--Jason Mraz

I'm supposed to be sleeping.  Adam has the "three noisies" at the pool so you would think conditions would be perfect.  I was up till who knows when trying to get Ruby to fall asleep last night, so I'm definitely tired.  Nap time just didn't happen for anyone today so again...I'm tired. Sweet little Ruby was sleeping soundly until a few moments ago.  I tried to nurse her back to sleep, but to no avail.  Maybe it is because everyone in the neighborhood decided to mow and/or weed eat their lawn tonight.  Is that a chain saw I hear too? I dunno.  Adam took the camera to work a few days ago and I decided I was way behind on taking pics of Ruby.  I started using Photo Booth here on my Mac.  Something about the camera made Ruby's stomach decide it was time to eject buckets of milk.  That is what is happening in the picture above.  But to prove she is a delightful little cutie see photo below:
Reddish brown hair, blue eyes, light olive skin, delightful personality--maybe I'm biased.  I think she is mad about her name, though.  Oh, she likes "Ruby", we all do.  It is the middle name that is the problem.  I want her middle name to be "Josephine" (my dear Grammy's middle name--well, her birth certificate says "Joe" because her dad wanted her to be a boy, but her mother always called her "Barbara Josephine").  Adam wants Ruby's middle name to be "Danger".  He is still upset with me for not letting him use that middle name for Tristan.  Pfssshhh, like I'm in any shape to raise a "Danger" for Pete's sake.  

So what do you think?  Should it be "Ruby Josephine", "Ruby Danger", or "Ruby No-Middle-Name"?  We'll keep putting off the baby blessing (just like we did with Tristan) until this is resolved.  Ruby needs your help.

You look radiant in that shot Mindi! Ruby is beautiful and Josephine complements that nicely. Adam has GOT to be kidding...
danger? Several of Ben's so called suggestions for baby names were over ruled as quickly as he could say them.

I of course vote for Ruby Josephine or Ruby with no middle name. Names truly have lots of meaning and I would not want to invite "danger." Pun intended..yes. Hope you are doing well.

My vote is for no middle name - since I didn't have one either. (Although I have to admit I like the sense of humor Adam has - but not enough to actually give a child the middle name of Danger!)

What a good picture she really is beautiful.

I hope you don't mind but I saw the link on Brandie's blog.

Hahaaha... Adam is so funny,he can't really be serious is he?!? It is unique, I don't know of a single girl with the name "Danger". Perhaps you could spell it that way but pronounce it differently like- Danshure? Personally, my vote is for Josephine.

Well me being a middle-name-less girl until I got married, I'm voting for no middle name! I liked it, being different but not unheard of. Good luck!

Um, that's a no-brainer...Ruby Danger of course! Kidding. I think Ruby Josephine is the best way to go.
