Don't name the dogs in your life names that you would want to name future potential children.
|Lexi as a puppy.|
Rewind about 5 years ago. I was a senior in college and my parents were getting a golden retriever puppy. I worked hard with my sister to convince my dad that Alexis, shortened to Lexi, would be the perfect puppy name. At the time I was not thinking about kids, hello I was 21... looking back I realize that Alexis would have been perfect for our little girl.
|Zo as a baby|
3 years ago? I did it again. As a wedding gift (and might I add the best wedding gift EVER) Drew bought 3 years ago? I did it again. As a wedding gift (and might I add the best wedding gift EVER) Drew bought me our adorable little peanut. About 30 seconds after seeing her sweet little face, I knew Zoey was the perfect name for her.* Zoey would be another perfect name for our little girl.
This stinks! I want to name my little girl. I want to call her by name when I talk to her and put letters up on her (not even begun) nursery walls. I have a feeling this little princess won't have a name until the day she is born...and maybe a little after.
*Side note: back in high school, Drew and I watched some show with a girl named Zoe in it, and agreed that if we ever had a daughter, we would name her Zoey with a y. I forgot about this as I named our puppy.
