Well, come June, there will be three little girls in this house who need three Woof Woofs. That’s right, come June we will be adding a Violet to our Lily and Rose bouquet!
When Lily found out she was going to have a new sibling, she immediately wanted to make the baby its own Woof Woof. We had to go to Build-A-Bear when I was only 8 weeks pregnant to fulfill her request. I felt absolutely ridiculous making a Woof Woof so early with Lily yelling to everyone that we were making it for the baby in my tummy, but we had a coupon for a free Build-A-Bear and Lily insisted that it be the baby’s Build-A-Bear!
We saved dressing it for when we found out the gender.
I was absolutely sure this baby was going to be a boy. I had morning sickness this time and had none with Rose and Lily. The heartrate has been in the 140s the whole time while Lily and Rose were always in the 160s. EVERYONE thought this was a boy. Even Lily thought it was a boy. Her reasoning? The baby had no hair in the 12-week ultrasound picture. No hair = boy.
My husband and I have been calling the baby a boy name since before it was even conceived! Our logic behind this was everyone we knew who was pregnant at that moment was having a boy. When I was pregnant with Lily and Rose, everyone was having a girl. See? Had to be a boy.
We were wrong! And it’s a very good thing– we’ll save a ton on clothes, toys and decorating.
The day we found out that we were having a Violet, we rushed to Build-A-Bear to genderize Woof Woof III, or as Lily calls it, Little Baby Woof Woof.
And yes, part of the new baby’s name really is Violet. Our girls go by their middle names on this blog and all three have flower middle names. It sort of happened by accident. Flower middle names were the best sounding choices for Lily and Rose. By the time that happened, we were sort of cemented into making sure any more gilrs we have have a flower middle name.
I’m glad I got a chance to use one of the only viable flower names left! People kept teasing me with Daisy and Tulip, but the good choices left that I can think of are Violet and Ivy. Violet beat out Ivy big time though. And there won’t be a next time, so Rose, Lily and Violet will be our final family bouquet.
