We’ve spent many hours in the last six months wondering about the little one that would eventually join our family. Especially in the last few weeks, it’s been a frequent topic of conversation.
But in the last few days, it’s been pretty much the only thing we talk about.
So, for fun, I thought I’d compose a list of our speculations on our future daughter and sister. I asked every one within earshot a few questions about her, to see who might come closest to the little one that might, just might, be revealed to us sometime in the next 12 hours.
And here are the results.
You’re welcome to add in your own guesses in the comment section… do I smell a giveaway?
On to our guesses…
Age? Uh… da… Vivi? (pointing to her own picture)
What will she look like? Uh… fwee?
What should we call her? Uh… Asher.
Age? One and one month.
What will she look like? She’s gonna be tan like Vivi. And she’s gonna have black hair and black eyes. She will be 2 feet 6 inches. And 15 pounds.
What should we call her? Magnolia.
Age? Probably like one or two.
What will she look like? I think she’s gonna be a little bit like Vivi. A little bit like Vivi’s arms.
What should we call her? Emily.
Age? Um. Fweee.
What will she look like? Um. A girl. A pweeetty girl.
What should we call her? Um. Lulu.
Age? Umm… six.
What will she look like? Umm, like that dress. (pointing to Vivienne’s dress)
What should we call her? Hmmm. I thiiiiiink…. ummmm. How ’bout Mei?
Age? One. And three months.
What will she look like? Adorable-sauce. She might have clubfoot.
What should we call her? Magnolia. Maggie for short.
Chris… (who was clearly absent from our picture taking fiesta yesterday. Sorry, babe, but your stand-in is a lovely purple flower.)
Age? 10 months.
What will she look like? Chinese. *ha, ha, funny man* And her special need will be clubfoot.
What should we call her? Emme. Short for Emmeline.
Age? 14 months.
What will she look like? Beautiful. Not a whole lotta hair. Full lips. Special need of amniotic banding and a single clubfoot.
What should we call her? Well, see, I can’t quite decide. I have a list of favorites that changes hour to hour. Minute to minute, really. Y’alls name ideas rocked my world, and I read every. single. one. Some really good ones in there, y’all. I’m going to post a poll of our current top picks so y’all can weigh in… just know that we won’t necessarily be swayed by popular vote. We’re rebels like that.
