Hello! I need some names!

It's been a while since I have written.  I have a few updates.

First of all, I applied and received Social Security Disability.  I was no longer able to be consistent at my work so I applied and went through the process of application.  It was a long and sometimes humiliating process, but in the end I received approval in the first try.  I am thankful for the added income, even if it is very small.  If you find yourself in the process of applying for Disability and have any questions, please feel free to email me

Since the death of my sweet dog Momo, I decided to buy a couple of zebra finches.  I guess the house felt a little empty and I have always loved birds.  So, I decided the finches are the least amount of work and trouble.  Although Momo is gone, it is nice to be able to think of going somewhere without worry of where she could be comfortable, etc.

So one day after CJ came over from school, I said "let's go and buy some finches"!  She was very excited and I really enjoyed the idea!  So, we came home with two awesome finches.  A male and a female, who I have yet to name.  It was suggested I have a contest here....and if anyone wants to post possible names, then I would be happy to entertain them.  And I think I will send a prize to the one I choose.  Just not sure what to what do you have to loose?  Suggest a name, and maybe win something! 

Here are my finches...

I was surprised he started taking a bath while I was standing there!  So, luckily I had my phone to catch the moment! 

After I had the birds for a couple of weeks, I noticed they seemed to want to build a nest.  So we put a nest in the cage and some material for building.  I never expected in my wildest dreams that they would actually mate and lay eggs!  But, they did!  After we came back from Disneyland there was 4 eggs, or so I think.  But in just a very few days I heard peeping! 
As you can see....there are baby birds!  Wow...suddenly I have quite a few more than 2!  It is a fascinating thing to watch...a little overwhelming!
I thought there were 4 but now I'm wondering if there are 5? (you can't really see in the is so small.  so I have to put the iphone up to it and flash away...hopefully they won't be blind!)

Wow...I'm now a flock owner!  Help...I need name ideas!

There was one more video I wanted to share with you....for weeks this was happening at my home...
