Naming the twins

Troy has agreed to let me name our son Bartholomew under the condition HE names our daughter. I was a bit taken aback by this, but I asked what he wanted to name our daughter. "Well, I like Kymberleigh, but not the way you spell it. I want it to be K-I-M-B-E-R-L-Y"

I can't do this. He can name our son Nathan. I don't have to like it.

    Sounds good. Truth be told, I like Nathan better. Bartholomew is too close to some popular cartoon character that you do NOT want your son emulating. And if he becomes a pastor like you hope, that can really hinder his ministry. Nathan is a good Biblical name. Remember, King David listened to Nathan when he confronted him in his sin. And the Bates have a son Nathan who's training to be a pastor. He'd be honored that you're naming your son after him! Now THAT'S someone to emulate! As for Kymberleigh, the spelling is weird, but it does follow the pattern of your other daughters' names, so it's good she won't be left out.
    Wow; I can't believe we were right! Twins; a double blessing! But God gives double strength. I've seen it with my relatives and friends who have twins. Most of them have same-gender twins, but boy-girl twins I think may be easier. But I may be wrong.
    So you're due around spring? How lovely. I hope they're born during the school spring break. I'll bet Nataleigh and Kayleigh are so excited to be going back to school really soon

    1. My son is not being named after a Bates child, he is being named after his fathers grandfather who was a very Godly man.

      And Kymberleigh is not weird.

  2. Well, Kimberly will be easier for your daughter to spell especially since she won't be going to school to learn to spell.

    Do you think your older children will be jealous of the new babies? Will you have them be buddies like the Duggar family does with the older and younger children? That way you will have more free time to focus on important things.

    I hope you are able to breast feed twins. That sounds like a lot of work but you are pretty dedicated to your children.

    Do you think you will have more children after these two? Children are blessings but oh my so expensive.

    1. Because I submit to my husband, he has deemed our children go to a private school. So yes, my daughter will go to school.

      I doubt my children will be jealous. Baileigh has learned to have a servants heart since Matthew came along, and the other two adore children.

      Yes, I will breast feed twins, and yes we will have as many children as God allows.

  3. Do you have any advice for other mothers that are pregnant and have other young children? How do you keep your energy level up?

  4. You both sure are immature when it comes to naming babies. Especially you Ashleigh. Grow up!

    1. Be nice to Ashleigh! You certainly don't sound very mature!

    2. It's not about maturity. It's about the cult she is subjecting her children too and some of the things she has written like, "I think I will lock them in the closet after I spank them for playing with the neighbor kids." That's immature and it's ABUSE! Two grown adults who can't agree on names and argue about it make me wonder.

    3. They get spanked for playing with the neighbor kids????I have a feeling all these kids are going to have a hard time making decisions in their lives.

  5. I am confused. You said you submit to your husband, and yet you are arguing with him about baby names? How is that submitting?

  6. Kymberleigh is very unusual (or weird, as someone else said), but it sounds the same as Kimberly, so why are you so against Kimberly as your husband wants? What about a compromise: Kimberleigh? In my family, we just keep looking at names til both parents are happy with the name.
