Wondering and Remembering

Photobucket

Remember when you were like 14 and you had all your baby names picked out, sometimes even middle names too. And you said you were going to have x amount of boys and x amount of girls like you could control that?  Haha some of us still have these envisions (I do!) Before I had Olivia I wanted 4 boys, no girls.  Now all I want is girls! Funny how things change!

Remember when you also used to think of what you're future children will look like?  Often times I just have a huge realization that I am living the part of my life I always wished of having.  I remember being that young teenage girl wishing for the perfect studly husband and the cute, well-mannered kids...everyone does this right?  It's crazy to think that I am there now and I don't really know what else to dream about besides my life right now.  Sure the trip to the Bahamas when we're both retired sounds very appealing, but it's really fun being a mom and a wife.  It's definitely not the easiest thing in the world, but it really is the most rewarding job ever!

  3. Aww, this is so sweet! I totally know what you mean- I still pick out my future baby names and I'm 26! Hehe, but my names have gotten a little more normal over the years. I think at one point I was going to have a kid named Pepper.

  5. Remember the games everyone would play that would tell you how many kids and how big your house would be and where you would live? So funny! I don't think I can remember any names on my favorite names list.. hmm.

  9. So cute together! It is funny to remember those days of thinking 'of what the future holds,' and not really having a concept of it. Now, at this point in life - lots of joys have been realized.

    With (2) boys-men really - 'almost' raised I anticipate with eagerness for them to experience all the joys I have and ache for the challenges and trials they may yet experience.

    With (2) still at home I hope I can remain stalwart & strong in teaching them some of the same things in the same way for the same result. It is different now. Ten years between the kids makes a difference. I'm different. The world's different.

    Thank goodness the gospel of Jesus Christ is the same. I have the same governing principles to my life that guide me along in my quest.

  10. Yeah I still totally do this! I think I will have 2 more boys and 2 girls. I am almost sure of it. Like I can control it hahahaha. Why do we do that? ahhaha As for names as a kid I loved names like Chrystal, Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Sparkles and thought these were all reasonable names to name my children ahhaha. REALLY my 6 yr old brain really had something going on...

    I can't wait to see what this little baby will be! How exciting.

  12. aw she's so cute! i do have all my baby names picked out, unfortunately my husband isn't in agreement :) good thing we don't have any kids yet or they'd be nameless!

  13. This is so sweet. Olivia is so lucky to have you as a Mommy, Daniel is lucky to have you as a wife, and Baby #2 is going to be just as blessed!

    I totally have my kids names picked out. I have 4 names picked out, but only 2 are significant, so I suppose my future hubby can have a say in a few names ;)

  14. YES! I can totally relate to this post!! I had all my baby names picked out too. Then when I got pregnant I realized I hated them. Maybe because I had been imagining them for years. HA.

    & I always wanted girls and now that I have Hudson I find myself only wanting boys. So I'm just like you, but the opposite! HA!

  15. Aw, what a cutie! Yes, remember thinking the same exact thoughts as a teenager...always wishing for that perfectly structured life. Now, I just accept things as they come (usually, anyway).

  18. When I was a young girl I remember trying to figure out how I could make it possible to actually marry Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Well, that didn't happen, but I'm pretty happy with the husband I have :)

    And, I don't even like most of the names I picked when I was young. I did give one of the names I liked to my dog though so it counted for something!

  20. Oh my goodness how things change. It is funny to think about it. I had some seriously hilarious things planned out for myself. And the names! I really like the perspective that we are living mostly what we wished for. Being a mom and wife is great. Good thing to remember :)
