4 weeks 5 days...
I can't believe it has been over a month since we saw our babies in Ghana. We are handling it pretty well.....I truly can't believe it has been so long. Hopefully, we will continue to wait gracefully and patiently.....but not for too much longer!
I don't know if I had blogged about a conversation I had with B while we were in Ghana. We were sitting in the hotel room watching Barbie and the Diamond Castle (the best Barbie movie so far) and she asked me what her new American name was gonig to be. Keith and I had talked about names and decided that we wouldn't plan on changing names...we would add a middle name and leave it up to them.
I told her that we didn't know if she would want a new American name and she was adamant that she wanted a new American name and she wanted us to pick it out. So Keith picked one out...while we were in Ghana. Yes...I let Keith pick out a name. He told B and she loved it. I later picked one for V. So we have new American names for them.
The kids love the new American names. It is hard for keith and I to refer to them by their new American names...and it is going to be weird and somewhat confusing when we switch over to the new names. I know there are lots of reasons to not switch to new names. We have discussed it on more than one occasion...but we are going forth with the new American names.
Alexandra.....Alex for B and Zoe for V. Lilianna, being a huge Wizards of Waverly Place fan LOVED Alex and was pushing for Harper for V..haha.
