Godzilla

Not your average baby I tell you. This one's a dangerous one hehehe...

Looks can be deceiving. She looks like an absolute angel but believe me, when she's hungry or sleepy...the monster in her gets out. It's as if she's got split personality..

Ok. So jokes aside. She's a real cutey and an adorable baby. It's just that she's very good at getting attention and getting what she wants. SHe's a very determined kid. Determined and demanding.

I can hardly believe how 'big' she is right now. I can still remember, every detail of my delivery. Well, almost every detail cos some moments I was too drunk (from the panthedine and gas).

And, did you know, she was this close to being called "Siobhan". I honestly love this name. But, I also wowed that my kids will not have names where people/kids can easily make fun off. So, no Apple, Prune or Orange.

I'll tell you why I love that name - one of my fav bands were the Bangles and from there, Shakespeare Sister. Heard of them? Only if you're above 35...sorry young un's. One of them, if I remember was Siobhan Fahey. Now, I never knew how to pronounce the name but for some reason, I liked it. And I was very tempted to call Em that since well...at least I could tell her how her name was "born" when she's older. Eventually, I tossed the idea out of the window because believe me, she'll be picked on, laughed at, set aside...God only knows what'll happen.

So, we decided on the safest possible name - Emily..hehe...Now...if Em had a bumbleride indie twin you reckon the twin will be called Marcella? Oh no..that'll be so wrong, so very very wrong!!

Em has got large eyes! I think Siobhan is pronounced "Shi-vawn". I googled it cos I didn't know how to pronounce it too :):) Apparently, it's an Irish translation for Hannah. Interesting, isn't it? Never theless, Emily is a very very nice name! (*walk like an egyptian*)

Thanks PL. I am sure hubby will be pleased to hear that (Emily is a nice name) cos he came up with it. We were torn between Emily, Kristin and errr...one more I can't remember when we ditched Siobhan.

I love baby names: learning their meanings, seeing why parents choose the names that they do... Siobhan is interesting. I have a daughter named Hannah, so that's cool that it's the Irish name for Hannah.

Your babies are getting SO big! My oldest will be 20 this year, UGH! Seems like yesterday she was in her crib...

Barb : Shi-Von. And oh, I am so jeles u're only 30!! ;-)

Rebecca : Hey..how have you been? Ah...should've named her Siobhan then hehehe...
