Meet Our Little Ones

**Obviously they're not here yet, but we have finally decided on names!**

Isabella Lynn Howard
This is our beautiful baby girl's name! It is Hebrew for "God's promise," which was unintentional (Mr. Howard and I just fell in love with the name while we were in high school), but so fitting. When Cole passed away, I feel like God promised us that everything was going to be okay. I love that she will have the professional name of Isabella if she chooses, but then can have a bunch of nicknames to choose from - Ella, Bella, Izzy, Belle!

Aiden Patrick Howard
"Aiden" is of Gaelic origin and it means "little fire." If he is anything like his big brother, Connor, then we are all in for it! We thought it fits him perfectly as he is Baby A. If I deliver without a c-section, he will be the little bundle of joy we welcome first into the world. And, really, he'll have to have a little fire in him to have a twin sister his whole life. His middle name was the name we struggled with. We wanted something strong and something that fit with Aiden and when we heard Patrick, we thought it fit as I've always had a hard time giving up my maiden name: Kirkpatrick. It will be as if he has a little of the Kirkpatrick name in him.

We loved that Baby A will be Aiden and Baby B will be "Bella." Obviously this was not done on purpose, but it fits, doesn't it?

Love the names. You both have done such a great job of giving your children names that MEAN something (Connor means "Of High Desire", I know you knew that, but your readers may not have!) and not just following the crowd or being just plain ol weird about it. =) They all fit wonderfully together and fit wonderfully with Cole. I cannot WAIT to meet Aiden and Isabella!!

Excellent choices. I expected Isabella Lynn and love Aiden Patrick. (I must confess, I've been partial to Patrick for years and the reference to Kirkpatrick is perfect. There's something oddly comforting about carrying on the family heritage.) I'm looking forward to meeting the wee ones!

Weight gain of 31 pounds with twins...maybe I should rethink my desire...

Kira,

You're not overweight...so you'd have to gain a lot more than 31 pounds. =) For a normal healthy weight woman, it's between 40-51 pounds. For one baby, it's around 30 pounds. Hehe! GET EXCITED!!
