Don't mind my comfy outfit... I figured since I've made it to the third trimester, why bother getting dressed up anymore? Ha ha, I'm kidding! I promise I still try to look cute. I just kind of forgot to change for this picture :)
So I've been getting the same question a lot lately... do we have a name picked out for baby girl?? We're pretty sure we've got her name picked BUT we won't be sharing it until she is born. I have a couple different reasons behind waiting to share. 1- I'm pretty set on the name and Eric is on board as well... but we could change our minds between now and birth. Or we may see her and decide that she just doesn't look like a "......" you know? So nothing is set in stone until she makes her arrival into our world!
2- The name has a sweet story behind it, actually, it has a couple cute stories that makes the name very dear to my heart. And it melts my heart every time I hear Eric say the name. Basically, I love the name! But you know.... people give their opinions too freely sometimes and they don't stop to think how negative or hurtful their opinion can be. Eric and I will be naming our daughter based on a name that we love, and a name that feels right. No one else can make that special decision except for mom and dad, right? Right. So if someone doesn't agree with the name we choose, it's not going to change our minds. But it will hurt my feelings. And it might turn me into a mama bear and I might say something hurtful back. (Ha ha, I'm kidding! I have pretty good self control :)) But when she is born, and we give her a name, no one is going to give their opinions about whether they like the name or not. Because she will be a sweet baby sent straight from heaven and everyone will be so wrapped up in her. She will be real. She will be our little "......" and no one would be able to deny that reality. Everyone will be so in love with her, regardless of her name. So until that moment comes, I'm going to let her name be a surprise for everyone else, and a special secret between me and Eric :)
