When my daughter was born four years ago, we hadn't found out whether or not the baby was a boy or a girl. We had picked out two names for each sex, because frankly I thought it was ridiculous to name a child you haven't even seen yet. When she was born, we both knew right away that she was a LEAH.
Now, it is naming time again. We know that we are going to have a girl and that she probably won't be coming home until sometime in 2007. Here is where I stuff my big fat foot in my mouth. We have already named her. I know, I know, I did say how silly it is to name a child before you see them but now I understand why people do it. I know, in my heart, what she looks like already. So for those of you who don't know, she will be named MAYA. There, it's down in cyber pen and ink.
My daughters Leah and Maya. Sisters Leah and Maya. I think it has a nice ring to it.
