I've named my baby girls, finally! The interesting part about naming them has been the correlation you have to extend from mom's name to baby's name. See, because of the pedigree, the names have to flow together. For instance, the mom of one of my doeling's, Jingle, actually has the full name Jingle Bell Rock. Jingle's real name is Rock and her Mom's name is Bell and her g'ma's name is Jingle. (I think that's how it went.) See how the word play goes down the pedigree line? I then had to come up with a name that flowed and attached itself to Jingle Bell Rock. So I gave it lots of thought and I came up with Star. Which is fitting because Star is chocolate brown with a white "star" on the top of her head. And when she kids, I will name one of her baby's Gazer! The other doeling I am getting, her mom's name is Dreamer. That's it. Just Dreamer. Which was nice because it required less thinking. With this name, I didn't want to start a word association game like Star's, so I kept it simple and just picked out a name that I really like but flows nicely with the sound of Dreamer. I picked Arabella. It is pronounced, in my world, like Air-uh-bell-uh. It means "prayerful". I think it's fitting for the circumstances in which I was prayerful for them. And still am.

I find it curiouser and curiouser that I don't have them yet, but the experience has taught me so much already. I realized and learned this week that my want of them has to be recognized as a gift from God and held with open hand. The more I close my fist around the gift, the more I become a control freak and worry about details. I don't need to be that way. Prepared yes; obsessive, no.

Stand by for more pics. I am expecting some soon!
