What’s On My Mind
Baby Names… Baby Names.
More Baby Names.
We have a slightly narrowed down list- and yet- I still can’t rest in it.
Twins adds this whole new dimension to everything (including me.)
One of our girls will bear a family name. The rest of our family follows a pattern of biblical names. Also, we have always carefully chosen names based on their meanings as well. Finding a biblical name for precious Baby B that also flows well with her twin sister is making my mind swirl. Plus- I seem to have this penchant for flowery, elaborate or strange/unique names this pregnancy. Then there is the “twin thing” aka how similar/ dissimilar should their names be… etc. Here are my two favorites- that we will NOT be using: Isabella (Bella) Rose and Amelia (Ami) Hope. Ah well. I have also recently discussed Sylvie, Esme (Es- May), Amity (love this one- has a bad association for Todd so we can’t use it. It is a beautiful virtue name), Nora (Honora/Honoria- Todd brought up Nora- I needed it to be a nickname), Adelaide, Bethanie, Arabella, Annabella. I liked Avery til I learned it was pagan. Blek. Name overload.
This is a big change for me- as usually, through prayer, and “listening” to the little one in the womb- I have a definite, strong, unshakeable sense of the name.
I am very high maintenance this pregnancy (girl hormones) and do NOT like being unsettled about anything- including baby names.
Nesting. I have an unshakeable urge to organize, purge, decorate, and otherwise, change, alter, and manage our house. Thankfully Todd jumped on the wagon for me. Thankfully. And I am working my way systematically down my several page list of “to do” items. I give full rein to it when I have the energy because it is so unpredictable as to the days when I am able to push through and the days when I have to rest more. I want to move furniture, rearrange rooms, etc. Right now I am contenting myself with “decorating” a.k.a putting up pictures, scriptures, maps, etc. and organizing clothing and closets and bookshelves.
My grandmother. I wish I could ask her how she did it and how she felt. Also- if her twin girls were on time and how big they were. I could ask my aunts for those details. Hopefully I will!
Priorities. The fledglings in my nest need more from me than I have been giving them and I am purposing to focus on that and order my days accordingly.
Baby plans and delivery.
