Memo from Baby

Hello! If you see my mommy start grinning for no reason, you'll know that her secret wish came true, and I am a little GIRL!

My name will probably be Rebekah, Anna or Clara. My sister Leah thinks my name should be Lily, and that it is her privilege as my big sister to give me my name. Mommy and Daddy do not think so.

I stayed curled up for most of my picture session. But here is one time I moved my hands down from my face.

I look forward to meeting everyone in about 20 weeks!

Dear Baby,

Still twenty weeks till birth and already posting on the blog! I'm looking forward to meeting you when you are born. Mommy says you began your regular 8:30 bedtime exercise routine this evening as usual. Clearly you like to work with schedules, at least for the moment. So... keep the gymnastic exercises up, and keep in mind that Daddies are good for jumping and playing once you are born.

Love,
Daddy

You definitely need to name the baby "Rebekah"! Then you'll just need a "Rachel" and you'll have all four matriarchs in one family. :) Come on, imagine how left out the baby will feel if her name isn't in the blessing...

I'm excited for another niece!!

Btw, "Lily" in Hebrew is "Shoshana," a fairly common name... just a thought. :)

Another niece! I'm happy too. I agree that it should probably be Rebekah... though I do like Anna too, since it's close to my name :) is it coincidence that all your girl names end in the sound "ah"?

I am so happy for you!!!!! I picked names for my kids, but always reserve the right to change it upon seeing their face. Sometimes they tell you what to name them :)

Yes! If you want to believe it, Leah told me before she was born. David told a friend of mine in a dream, again before he was born.

Patricia said...

ah... no coincidence there. ;) I really like the way they all sound together. It is important to me that our childrens' names "fit" with each other.

We already add "David" to his blessing. ;)

Molly said...

Now you just need to name your next boy Ephraim or Menashe. :)

Patricia said...

ha! We'll leave those for you. ;) ;)

It is AMAZING how you can see her little fingers! Just amazing! B'Sha-ah Tovah (in it's good time), as the traditional Jewish saying for prego ladies goes. I have to say, I just love rubbing your baby bump. See you and The Bump tomorrow.

Great, great pictures! I love the name Rebekah. Looking at you, I can't believe she's in there!

And belatedly, so sorry about your dog experience! How frightening.

OH!!! How exciting for you!!!! A girl! I'm slightly jealous, but only jealous because I have no clue what we are having and have at least another 8 weeks until I get to meet him or her (and yes, I'm secretly wishing for a her to!) And, BTW, I'm a fan of the name Lily, only we prefer to spell it Lilly.....
Miss you!
