These ladies were made for walking.
..and that's just what they do. All over the place, in fact. Hazel started first--my bet was on her anyways, since she rolled and crawled first too--and just a couple of weeks after, Norah followed suit.
And now, Hazel's feet are most likely found exploring in the backyard. That's her favorite place to be. Or possibly near Harvest, the bunny we sit for. Or Chloe, our neighbors new pup. It seems as though Hazel becomes highly energized by furry creatures.
Norah prefers the kitchen. I call her our little Domestic Diva. She'd be fine with standing on the stool at the kitchen sink, playing in the water right by my side. Or possibly standing on the washing machine looking through the laundry room cabinet above. No lie! Even though I was extremely startled the first time--seeing her little body that high above solid ground--I obviously didn't learn my lesson until the second time when I found her there again. It was the stool and utility sink that helped her accomplish that feat. There will be no more of that.
And speaking of ladies, it's time to announce the two winners of the Sibling Name Challenge.
So, if we were adding a boy to 4under3's household, I most definitely would love to name him: Max. Short, sweet. And, how cute would Luke and Max sound together! Love it!
Way to go Kristin! If you would hand over your snail mail address please.
And, I can't go without saying that Jack used to be a favorite of mine. Nicole, Lisa H, Weeksie50, Tracy, and Nicole thought so too. And, I've realized since the girls have been born--and apparently so in this contest--it's so very common.
And after much deliberation, if we added a girl, I most definitely would love to name her: Lilah with an "h." In fact, our youth pastor and his wife just had a Lilah. And I melted when I heard it. So sweet, elegant, and dear.
Congrats Andi! Your snail mail address too, please.
But, I'll tell you, Stella was close behind, smart thinking Annika. And, Amelia was next, so prim and proper, Jessica and Beth E.
Remember, and keep in mind, this is a hypothetical situation. Just wanted to throw that out there one more time for the grandparents who are with us this evening. And to be truthful, it's odd not to honestly be settling on names right around this 16-month-mark that the girls are at. You see, Julia was 16 months and 3 weeks when Luke was born. Luke was 15 months and 3 weeks when the girls were born. And here we are, 16 months and 3 days with no newborns, or pregnancies for that matter.
So thanks for playing along, ladies. I've gotten my fill of baby naming regardless.
