What's In a Name??

So much thought goes into naming babies. One of the books that we looked at when thinking of names for our babies had 100,000 names in it. Seriously, do you think all 100,000 of those names are actually a real person’s name? Anyway, I thought I would explain the background behind Reid and Louisa’s names and tell you a few of the nicknames they have acquired.

Kenneth “Reid” Harrison – Kenneth is Craig’s grandfather’s name, so Craig has always wanted to name his little boy after Papa. Reid just happened to be a name that we came across in the huge name book that we liked.

Louisa Claire Harrison – My grandmother’s name and my Mom’s middle name is Louise. I was extremely close to my grandmother (we shared the same birthday), so I have always wanted to name my little girl after her. I had a friend named Claire growing up and I have always loved the name.

Reid and Louisa have acquired many, many nicknames in their 3 short months of life. I thought I would list a few…

"Reid-Muffin" or "Reider Muffin" or sometimes just "Muffin"– He’s just so darn cute and huggable…you just want to eat him!
"Cuddly Bear" – Again, he’s so huggable and cuddly!
"Stinky" – Wow, is he a boy!
"Billy Goat" – Reid does a great billy goat impression with some of the noises he makes
"Brother" / "Bubby"

"Little Bo Peep" – She likes to “peep” at you with her eyes just barely open, it seems that at night she sometimes loses her sheep and has nothing to count!
"Angel" – Because when she’s sleeping she looks like an absolute angel in complete peace
"Sister" / "Sissy"
"Doodle" or "Doodlebug" - Because Jane calls me "Doodle" and we think it also fits Louisa!

I'm sure there will be many more nicknames to come over the years!

Now, because I think posts are always better with pictures...

Our Littlest Valentine!

Reid always has "Lots of Love" to share with us!

Happy 3 Month Birthday, Babies!

3 months old!! The time seems to have gone so quickly, yet I can hardly remember what life was like before we had Reid and Louisa. The last 3 months have been filled with so many different experiences and emotions. I think I can speak for Craig too when I say that our hearts and our lives are truly full. For me, being Reid and Louisa's Mom is such a privilege and honor. Our days are busy and there is always a lot to do, but I absolutely love being Mommy!
