Over the past year we have been discussing what we would name our future bambinos pretty much nonstop.
Granted the convos have gotten more intense over the past 4 months since we found out we were prego and even more in the past 3 months since we found out we are having twins.
There have been many a nights where we sit on the couch facing each other - one of us on the iPad (usually me - I know, Erin, I don't share it well) and the other on their iPhone looking up names for hours and hours.
**broken record alert**
It still feels unbelievably surreal that I am actually prego and cooking TWO babies...how freaking lucky can I/we get!?!? Un-BELIEVABLE!!!! so so thankful and lucky!!
Also, a part of the name change/selection discussion is what will our babies last name be? We discussed hyphenating but, in our opinion, that is a lot to put on any kid and eventually in school or just in life, the latter of the names would probably be dropped purely due to length. So we decided on my last name which also means my Erin will be taking on my last name which is beyond a compliment in itself that she is doing so. Gives me chills to think about how we all will have our family name soon.
So, we have spent hours dreaming about our bambinos names...but it did not dawn on me until a few days ago that my name is changing too. In a few months, I am going to be called Mommy. What a freakin amazing feeling this is! I cannot even explain how out-of-this-effin-world this feels.
Sitting here with tears streaming down my face at the thought of this perfect little voice looking up at me (thank you pregnancy hormones paired with being a sap to begin with) and saying, "Mommy" Beyond amazing.
I get a new name..and it is the most beautiful name I have ever heard.
