Beloved x 2

My sister Laura's two kids are named Amy and David and those names ironically mean the same thing… beloved. Laura didn't know that when she chose the name for her new baby, but I think it's kind of neat.

Last Thursday when Laura was over with her kids I asked her to take some pictures of them since I try to have pictures taken of the kids on a frequent basis since young kids (especially newborns) change so quickly. It didn't go so well! Amy didn't cooperate very well and David wasn't having it either! We tried our best and got some shots that were cute because they showed the craziness that was going on, but they definitely weren't the nicely composed type of picture that I was hoping to get. Oh well, kids will be kid, right?!

The first two pictures are of Amy – check out those bright, blue eyes! The next two pictures are of David. The second picture of him shows what kind of mood he was in.
The next bunch of pictures are of Amy and David together. Amy's not really big enough to hold David, so he was getting angrier and angrier!
This next picture showed David's mood, so we had to resort to using a pacifier to keep him from crying. It worked, except I don't like photographs of babies when they have a pacifier in their mouth. (Especially this blue kind of pacifier that you get from the hospital.)

They are adorable anyway.

Oh my goodness! What I wouldn't give to have those huge blue eyes! Beautiful!

Your Utah Friend,

Hey, they turned out okay! I DID actually know that both names meant 'beloved'. We'd initially planned on naming Amy "Rebekah Amy" instead of the other way around, but decided when we switched her name around that we didn't mind both names having the same meaning. And they are certainly both 'beloved'!
