The name game

So now that we know our babies genders, we can share the names we have picked out for them! We LOVE the names we have picked out, and we are not the type of people to keep them to ourselves and save them as a surprise at delivery. We are too excited for that!

So if you don't like either or both names, please keep it to yourself =).

Without further ado....


Lucas Christian

and

Abigail Mae


Ta da!! Luke and Abbey have been our favorite boy and girl names since we started trying to get pregnant in the summer of 2006. We just love them both. Strong Biblical names, yet still contemporary. Christian is David's middle name, and Mae has no family ties, but we just love the way "Abbey Mae" sounds =). When we found out we were expecting twins, we found it surprisingly easy to pick another boy and girl name as well. If we would have had two boys, the other boy would be Benjamin Michael. And if two girls, the other girl would have been Leah Joy.
But, God saw it fit to give us a Luke and an Abbey, and we couldn't be more thrilled about it!!!


And yesterday I got pink and blue gifts!! My sweet co-worker and friend Kris came into work with these...


I almost died at the adorableness of it all!! Those blankets are sooo soft that I just wanted to turn out my office light and curl up with them and take a nap! I can't wait until I get to see my little Luke and Abbey-girl all wrapped up in these!

Well, actually yes I can wait...please babies stay put for at least another 18 weeks!!!! =)

Happy Friday all!

Sweet blog. Great photo of pink and blue baby gifts.

Love the names. 'Course another set of twins would give a grandchild with "Michael" in his name. I like that name. :O)

LOVE,
