Love…baby love…twin girl baby love…

It’s babies!!!! ¯\(ˆ◡ˆ)/¯

Newborn babies!!!!!

And not only newborn babies….

but twin baby girls….

and not only twin baby girls….

But twin baby girls born on two. separate. days…
With two different baby birthdays on their little baby birth certificates.

Now they need bloggy names…

Cute cartoonish bloggy names.

Remember Winnie the Pooh…
and how he got stuck in that tree?
The younger twin baby girl was like that.
She hearted the room service so much…
she didn’t want to leave the room…
or “womb” if you feel a little punny. (◠‿◠)

And the little one…
the first baby…
she just kind of fell out.

Well, I guess it was a little more involved than that. But still, she was a pretty convenient baby. And she’s little. Her sister is 7 pounds and something or other. She’s weighs in at a diminutive 5 pounds and something.

So…

Staying with the Winnie the Pooh theme, the firstborn twin could be Piglet, because she’s little. Also she eats (or drinks) veraciously now, while her younger sister seems a little concerned with her weight and is cutting back on her carbs.

source

But…

does any little girl want to be called Piglet? Names can stick. My brother Neil was given the nick name Nee-Nee as a baby – and we still call him that – in public – and he’s a cop. Officer Nee-Nee.

There is, of course, another A. A. Milne choice.

Tigger! Because the older baby’s tiny baby feet…

they were apparently “made of springs”…all eager and ready to be born.

She’s spunky!

And…For 5 hours she “was the only one” ♪♬♪♫♬♩

Hmmmmm.

One baby named Tigger…

and one named Pooh (which will actually be quite apropos for both of them for a while).

Which brings up another problem…
Any girl really want to be named pooh?

Still…

there’s another choice.

A Dr. Suess choice.

There’s Horton and the thing he heard – a “who”.
Horton was big and the “who” was little bitty.

But Horton is clearly a boy name and we don’t want the younger sister to have body image issues later…springing from her elephant name and all.

And we can’t name the first baby “who” – because it could cause confusion.
Or maybe she’ll start a rock band (who)…or be a doctor (who)…or play first base for the Yankees – because “what” is already playing second…and “I don’t know”…well…you know.

And what about…

“Thing One” and “Thing Two” from the Cat in the Hat?

Bloggy naming girls is hard!

But wait!!!!

There are all those Disney Princesses…

source

I think I need a part two…

Which is sort of fitting…twins and all.

The princess names should be buckets of fun!

And there will be more newborn pictures in it for ya if you come back!

Do I hear happy, pride, smiley, uncle stuff here?????? They are the most precious, Craig! Congratulations on your new “uncledom” status with twins!!!!!!
Personally???? I like Tigger and Piglet. It just fits. It makes me smile. And I need more smiles. And two for the price of one? That’s even better!

Who doesn’t love a 2 for 1 deal? This is the proud momma. Thanks for creating a special memory for their baby book, Uncle Craig. At least when we come up with nick names I can prove it was your fault when they complain :) I can’t get enough of these girls. BTW “Thing 1” was 5 lb. 2 oz and “Thing 2” was 6 lb. 3 oz. Love you brothor.

Oh wow–double blessings (or a double handful, depending, eh?)!! So grateful God brought them safely to ground–thank You, Lord. Congrats, best wishes, etc etc–prayers for rest and recovery, and good health for all. Have a good time, Uncle Craig! (I’m still laughing my head off at “Officer Nee-Nee”–oh gosh, oh golly!) Thanks for the great good news–sis Caddo

They are adorable and precious princess twins! I would go with princess names since every girl is the daughter of the MOST HIGH KING. Just my two cents worth…. Congratulations Uncle Craig!!!!!!!!!!! And Congratulations to you sister the new MOM!!!!!!

I still think it is awesome they have different birthdays. (see yesterday’s comment for more info).

Craig April 15, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I usually don’t reach favorite uncle status until kids get to be about kindergarten age – I’ll have to start early here. And I never want to have another colonoscopy again – although I’ll have to. And the love Kitty IS a trooper isn’t he? God bless you Michelle!

I don’t know what i liked best the writing or all the rockin’ animation..felt like a “power blog” on Disney. lurrvv it. enjoy those two beauties. I love babies because to me they seem so close to God, straight from heaven to earth in just minutes. And they are such a reminder of what this life was suppose to be before brokenness entered…joy,peace,bliss…. completely untainted.
congrats!

Craig April 15, 2012 at 4:43 pm

and this isn’t even the post with the most rockin’ animation – the following post with all the Disney princesses – THAT’S got some animation! I knew, given the people I read, and the people that read here, that newborn pictures would get rave reviews ㋡ and although they are adorable – to me, babies have always reminded me of how selfish we are from the very beginning – feed me feed me, hold me hold me, change me change me, cry, cry, cry – babies are NEEDY and pretty self-centered. But then, I’m not a mama like you are – and so I don’t really get it. ㋡

Oh, and I forgot to say thank you – and God bless you and yours, Lindsay ㋡

Totally congratulations!!!! They are beautiful already! Maybe Tigger and Chicklet…since the one is a little girl and not a little pig. You are right, they deserve wonderful nicknames! I heart reading your thoughts as you work your way along Nickname Lane! You will find just the right ones, I am sure!

:) to triple uncle kreg and triple ‘kidded’ Laska!

Hope you recuvr soon from the whole swirly pool business of Colinoscopy Land!

Craig April 15, 2012 at 4:34 pm

A – nice try with chicklit – but it messes with the cartoon-ish theme. I think my sister actually leans toward thing one and thing two. I think she’ll THOSE names even over the Princess suggestions. And anyway – the nicknames are not really nicknames – they;re bloggy names to use here – so I don’t use their real names. If they get picked up as nick names – lovely. But the names are really for use here. And Laska? Laska won’t be seeing these children for quite some time. And that visit to colonoscopy land? Never really want to go there again! Thank you, God bless you A.
