And Their Blog Names Shall Be...

"Pooper" (aka. "Thing 1")
7 lbs 3 oz

"Butterfly" (aka. "Thing 2")
6 lbs 12 oz

Sisters, Ka-Diva and Butterfly

Brothers, Buddy and Pooper

Let me just emphasize that, yes, I do realize that "Pooper" is probably not a very appropriate pseudonym for a precious little baby, but here's the thing...  Months ago when Chris and Christy were contemplating names for "the Things," they always made certain to include the big twins in the process.  One of their potential names for Baby Boy was "Cooper."  When Christy asked Buddy what he thought of it, he said "Pooper?!?  Why would you name a baby Pooper?!?"  Ever since then, that's the name that sticks when I've thought of Baby Boy (and if the nasty diaper that he had yesterday was any indication what's to come, it was probably a very fitting nick name).  So "Pooper" it is!!!

Buddy was also very insistant that Baby Girl's name be "Butterfly Crystal."  He has had that name on the brain for months.  When Christy asked why he liked that name so much, he said that he just thought it was a beautiful name and that baby girls' names should be beautiful.  Christy told Buddy that she would save that name special for him so that he could name his baby girl "Butterfly Crystal" when he is a daddy.  ;-)  I secretly loved the name though because butterflies are my little signs of happiness, so Baby Girl is officially blog named "Butterfly!"

Big thanks to Buddy for helping me "blog name" his baby brother and sister!  :-)

My oldest son was nick-named Pooper at birth. But then again, he did have his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck three times which caused him to nearly suffocate during the birthing process which is what I'm sure caused him to pass his meconium while being born and end up in the NICU. We decided since pooping was the first significant thing he did, Pooper was a fitting name. It stuck with him for nearly 3 years. At age 14 now, he is completely mortified with the mention of his first nick-name and we are "forbidden" to ever mention it. (Which of course means I have to mention it as much as possible. LOL)
