We’ve known their names for quite some time now.
But, we wanted to share with our family and closest friends before we put anything really, truly, out there.
And we’ve been seriously excited to share their names with all of you!
At 26+ weeks, and in twin mode crunch time, we are finally ready to tell the world…
We’ve always had a running list of names we loved. And I’ve always had two lists…
You see, one list was family names. The names of our grandparents and their parents and so on and so on.
The other list was the new names list. Names I loved that weren’t used before anywhere in our family. Names that we hadn’t heard before. Names that would be rare to come by.
But when we found out we were having twins, two names immediately came to mind.
And we juggled them relentlessly for a few months. Marsh even said at one point gosh it’s stressful naming another human.
But we kept coming back to these two names. And we started saying them out loud. We started referring to the babies by their names. And slowly but surely, we were reassured that these were indeed the perfect names.
We don’t know who they will look like, what their personalities will be like, or who they will take after. We don’t know what their hobbies will be, their likes and dislikes, their dreams or their fears. We don’t know their laugh will sound like or how tall they might end up.
But we know their names. And that’s a pretty good start!
We’re so excited to meet them, and to share them with those we love the most.
We can’t wait for you meet…
