shhh, don't tell anyone, I have a secret

And, since I have nothing more exciting to blog about right now, I will tell you.

I am really terrible at keeping certain things quiet...like what we plan to name our baby girl. We have known from the beginning what we wanted to name her. Instant agreement. Our kids love it, I love it, can't imagine it being anything but this. And, for the record, I really would rather not know if you don't like it or if you knew of a nice dog with that name (yes, it's happened before with Jack). If all you have to say is "Is that the best you could come up with?" You can keep that to yourself, also. (again, with Jack, it happened).

We love and adore it, and we'd be really happy if you smile politely and say that you love it, too.

It means "bringer of Light" which we love.

Here's a few hints...


















Grammy bought this cute pink shirt for her.













I found this at the goodwill for her, and this below is a little Daddy Love.


















Sidenote word of advice-----back up your hard drives...in one or two places, preferable two. For the past 6 months, I've been sorting through our files, and putting EVERYTHING on an external hard drive. Every single photo of my babies for the past 5 years. Every client we've photographed (can you sense where this is going?) Well, external hard drives apparently are not indestructable, and are certainly not equipped to handle a fall from the counter top. It makes them break. It will cost LOTS of money to get your precious photos back into your hands. I know this from experience. I do know that it's most likely salvageable, and that Grammy has lots of the important pictures on discs from Costco (Thank goodness!). I did shed many a tear. Lesson? Do not leave your external hard drive on the counter. #2, back up your back up. DO IT NOW.

Cute name!

The hard drive thing happened to us too. We payed $200 to get it tested but didn't do the $1500 it would cost to try and restore it. We lost videos and pictures and I cried for days. :( Nora's first time crawling...things like that. It totally sucks. We now back up EVERYTHING!

Thanks for sharing your Little Lucy's name with us. It's darling.
And I understand about people's lack of tact. With Shiloh I heard multiple times "Shiloh? Really? For a boy? Are you sure?" Um...Yeah, I'm sure.

Super cute name. I love it. Really. I love the name Jack too. I'm with ya. If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. We got grief for our names too.

Lucy is an adorable name!

I so hope that your Lucy board book is the one that we donated a while back! We had that whole series of animal shaped books!!! :)

I am going to remind my hubby to back up the computer this evening! *shivers* even thinking of losing my photos!

Hi, we have our little girl's name picked out too. We are #16 on the waiting list for AGCI Ethiopia. I am trying to "get to know" others in the program b/c the wait is tough and it is great to distract yourself with the lives of others going through the same thing!

rushhome said...

YES! love to be on your blogroll! Sascalia.etsy.com is the name of her shop. Love the name LUCY....

rushhome said...

We live in Albuquerque, NM now. We attended New Heights and then a church plant called Centerpoint where my husband was a youth pastor. I know a lot of AGCI families are in the NW- I am jealous of how close you all are to each other!
