You find out that you're having a baby. Congratulations! And then you find out that you're expecting (drum roll, please)...TWINS! The exciting news (yes, there is even more exciting news), you are going to be new parents to twin girls. It certainly sounds like double the congratulations are in order. Picture the loads of pale pink and soft lavender, feminine floral motifs, delicate eyelet trim and ruffles. There really is so much to plan and prepare for when you are having a child, let alone more than one child. You will need more of everything–baby food, diapers, car seats, strollers, high chairs, cribs, and the list goes on. You'll also need more than one name. We consider this to be the really fun stuff. It's no secret that Southerners love our names. Sometimes we even insist on giving our little girls two names. So coming up with a name for our daughters can be the most time-consuming and stressful conversations between you and your partner over the course of your nine month long waiting period. Some days you like the classic, old-fashioned names like Jane, Anne, Elizabeth, Catherine, and Mary. Other days you prefer the trendier names that you hear popping up on playgrounds and parks and around the neighborhood like Ruby, August, Eloise, Jade, Reese, and Olivia. Very different. All adorable. No matter what you decide to do–take the more traditional route or opt for more trendy names for your girls–this decision making process is bound to keep you up all night long. Think of it as a creative long-term project. Remember to first pick the names you love, and say them aloud to one another. And then put those names together and listen to how they sound together. Yes, together. Why is that important? Because your girls will stick together for their whole lives–and that's really the beauty of having a sister.
