A year ago today David and I found out we were blessed to be having two girls and a boy! (FYI, the “GBG” stands for their birth order.) I was 17 weeks and didn’t know it then, but I was a little more than halfway through the pregnancy. The babies would remain unnamed for some months, but knowing what they were was so much fun. We were soon able to identify them and fell in love with Baby A (Girl) and her feistiness, Baby B (Boy) and his impatience and Baby C (Girl) and her quiet ways. It seemed so much more real – we were having TRIPLETS. Triplets!!!
Right before we found out what Baby C was, I decided I wanted two boys and a girl. But after hearing she was a she…well, it suddenly didn’t matter anymore. I soon had visions of Daddy taking his little girls out on dates for ice cream and my little man learning how to open the door for me. Yes, two girls and a boy. This is God’s plan for us and we are thrilled.
However, if you have ever had to fight over names with your spouse, imagine trying to pick out three first and middle names! Let’s just say our opinions on names were rather…different. I liked names like Liberty, Israel and Caleigh and he liked…I’ve conveniently forgotten what he liked. We did agree pretty quickly on Noah David but the girls changed names quite a few times. We went from Emerson Claire and Greyson ??? to Emma Claire and Makenna Mae.
…just writing about them makes me wanna go snuggle them! Gotta go!
