Lucy & Penny

This is a re-post, but Kelly is having a SUYL baby names link-up today and I thought I'd re-share... Besides, it was about this time, 2 years ago, we got back from Liverpool to find out we were going to have baby #1... And about 1 year ago, we found out we were going to have baby #2!! Yipee!!!

So you obviously know that I have a Lucy Olivia, right? Do you know why she is Lucy Olivia? Well, let me tell you...

Kyle is a huge football (European football = Soccer) and his favorite team is Liverpool. Its mine too, just 'cause. Anyway, last April we were able to go to Liverpool to see a live match: Liverpool v Blackburn. Liverpool won 3-1. It was an amazing experience!

But who goes to Liverpool without experiencing all things Beatles, right? We went to the Beatles Museum, took the Magical Mystery Tour, and of course visited the Cavern. Ahh... I LOVE the Beatles.

Well, a couple weeks after we returned from our amazing vacation abroad, we found out we were going to have a baby. 9 mo. later we had little Lucy. You do the math... We felt it was only appropriate to name her after a Beatles song being as she was conceived in Liverpool :-) Like I said... It was an amazing vacation, hee hee! Hence Lucy, from Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Her middle name is Olivia after my little sister and absolutely best friend in the whole world.

Well, when we found out we were pregnant with baby #2, we decided we wanted to keep with the theme. We like themes, our puppies are named June and Cash, after Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash... So, what else would we name we name a little girl? Penny, of course! I have always loved the name Penny and it is just perfect with her big sister Lucy. Her middle name will be Lane... How could it not be? Not only does it just sound right but my other best friend in the entire world is Lane! I have know Lane since I was 2 and she is practically my sister. Love her!

Well there you have it! Miss Penny Lane will make her debut early 2010. We can't wait! Feel free to let me know how much you love the name ;-) If you don't so much like it... Well you can keep that to yourself :-)




What do you think we'd name a boy, if we have one?

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is a song about Lupus and John Lennons so just did a remake of it so all funds will go to Lupus research!! I have DM/Lupus/RA so that song is near and dear to my heart!
