Not long now before that 9 fades into a 1 and then into a beautiful little face to gaze at! Oh what a celebration THAT will be - I just can't WAIT!
So many thoughts are flooding my mind right now...
-Somewhere, someone is making a VERY hard decision.
-I miss my baby.
-The nursery isn't
-Our life is about to change forever...again!
But words don't accurately describe my heart.
We've been discussing her maybe name a lot lately. I haven't mentioned it on here before because we are rather secretive about names during pregnancies (not to mention, I've been trying hard not to mention our names on this blog period...not sure yet if I will make an exception for Lil Miss). With our son, we didn't announce his name (even to FAMILY) until we were introducing him in the hospital. There doesn't seem to be a lot of surprise left in pregnancy...and especially since I HAD to know the sex, I really wanted to surprise everyone with the name.
With holding it in...there's a lot of uncertainty sometimes. You don't know what others will think (but that only matters a TINY bit) or if it will fit the child you already love to pieces... So we've been saying Lil Miss' name around here a lot. Although in HER case, we're not sure yet if we will use her given name as her first name or possibly a middle name? We don't know it yet, so its hard to make that decision until we know her.
Already though, it seems like her name fits her. That may sound funny...but we've been learning more about the meaning behind the name we have chosen and it seems to fit our journey and our feelings towards her and our prayer for her. It seems so unreal that someday I'll be saying it out loud (in public)!
How did YOU choose a name for your child? Did you choose it because it sounded beautiful or flowed well? Did you choose a family name that had a significance for you? Did you choose it because of the meaning? Everyone seems to have unique reasons as to why they name their child what they do and I'm curious what yours is....please share!
