Refreshing

I often ask Ethan, "Are you ever so glad we had a girl so we could use the name Violet." And just to entertain me, "Oh yes Whitney. So glad."


The day after Violet was born, the pediatrician came to the hospital to give her a good look over. After reporting to me that she was healthy and nearly perfect, he asked, "What is her name?" I said, "Violet Caroline." He replied, "Violet! How refreshing!" I can imagine. In a place like Utah Valley, Violet must be refreshing among of sea of Breeleighs and Taeleahs.

The other day, I was on the phone with the health insurance people and the agent on the phone broke down, "Violet. What a beautiful name! I haven't heard that name in ages!" And because that seemed to make me appealing, he then asked me how well she is sleeping at night and if she is starting to smile.

Well, is she starting to smile? Yes, definitely yes.


And yes, that picture is the wallpaper on my desktop.

I love my babies' names, too. I deliberated long and hard on them.

Since I didn't "know" you when Jack was a baby, I will say that she looks like Van. You were made to make beautiful children.

And yes, it's a beautiful name.

Just met a grown damned woman named Michella. Yep...like Michelle but with an UH at the end. Wow! Other zingers... ie: Tevin, Braylee, Capryl, Brovan. You get the idea.
