Acorn’s having a baby!

There are currently no children at Acorn. Our youngest member is 22 and our oldest is 62. So we are very excited to finally have a baby on the way, which will mean a few changes for our community. We just found out it’s a boy and he’ll be here in early December. Our Mother-To-Be is still hopeful that she’ll be able to have a home birth, but our midwife isn’t ready to give her the thumbs up at this point. We all know that a lot can change in 4 1/2 months. The parents are currently in the process of collecting baby items, reading parenting books, and trying to find a suitable (but not too ordinary) name. If you have any suggestions, please post them in the comments.

Raising children in a community like Acorn will be an exciting and uncommon journey. We know it will also be a challenge that is sure to bring many interesting blog posts in the future.

    Well, choosing the baby’s name is indeed one
    of the most important early decisions the parents will make.

    “The name is central to a child’s earliest sense of identity, so the worst thing you could do when choosing a baby name is to rush into it. Settling for a name you are not 100% happy with may affect you and your child for a lifetime! Don’t commit yourself to the first name that you’ll find. Keep searching until you’ll find a name that you truly like.”

    While I personally think that quote is a bit dramatic, choosing a baby’s name is (or certainly should be) important.

    Although I don’t have any favorites that seem quite good enough, I do have a suggestion: read about the kinds of things you may want to consider (like, will his initials spell a word that will cause him embarrassment for the rest of his life) before you finish that all-important list. There are many (perhaps too many) websites devoted to names for babies. If you haven’t seen http://www.babynamestats.com, you may find some helpful ideas on the opening page that you hadn’t thought about.

    Best wishes and good luck.
