Baby :: Introducing...

 photo Milo_zpsa3534cce.png
Well, a few days ago we decided on a name for our new little boy. Ever since we found out we were having a boy we had been having a really tough time agreeing on a name. Of course we had a girl name all picked out though. Last Saturday in my bump update that never happened I had planned on talking about our name trouble. Then someone decided it was time to come out, named or not.

We decided to take our time and we have finally named this little guy...Milo Ivan James Mikesic. We knew what his middle names would be because we wanted to include both Granfathers names. We tried out a few first names and decided that Milo suited our sweet boy very well.

  1. "Milo" will always remind me of The Descendents! ;o)

    Not to be an alarmist, but I know you had a home birth so I'm not sure you've taken the baby to a regular doctor yet? Premature babies (I know he wasn't super early or anything) have a tendency towards jaundice, and your little guy has a bit of a yellow hue in these pictures. My son was born REALLY early at 27 1/2 weeks, and in the hospital they put the babies under these bilirubin lights to get rid of the jaundice. It could easily be the lighting in the pictures, but I thought I'd mention it.

    :o)

  3. He is just beyond precious. That little face! Ever since you started sharing pictures of your pregnancy journey, my ovaries exploded and kicked me straight into broody.

    I have one question - how do you pronounce 'Milo'? Is it 'Mee-low', or 'M-eye-low', or am I way off and should I just give up?

  5. Aww! I love that name! And I love using relative's names as middle names. Our son's middle name is my dad's name. (You can be sure my dad brags about that lololol.)

  10. Aw, what a face! He looks like he might have gotten just a touch of jaundice on his way out - I swear it seems like that happens to every baby lately! He's in an exciting club; it happened to me, too, haha.

    He's a sweetheart :) Just wait until he starts to really smile right at you!

    1. Yes, Ivan's dad was born in Croatia. The name Ivan has been in their family for generations. No one was into us continuing the tradition with our little guy's first name though.

    I think sometimes you just can't give a baby a name without getting to know them a wee bit.

  72. He's absolutely adorable! Congratulations on your new baby boy!

  73. Congrats! There's so many babies being born it seems! You have to check out the moms groups when you're up to it. momstown.ca (they offer a 4 week free trial) and they have interesting workshops. I've been taking Story to Baby Picasso. Barefoot Babies has a breast feeding and parenting group (free), and the local leche meetings are great.
