I have had a few people asking about Taeya's name; where it's from and how it's pronounced. Even when Phil and I were dating we used to talk about names we might name our kids someday. I had a list on my computer of a few favorites that I didn't want to forget. Just a little over 2 years ago, I came across the name Taeya as I was reading. (The one I read was spelled a little different as there are many ways to spell it.) I asked Phil at the time if he liked the name and he said he did. At that point, I started looking for middle names that would sound good with it. As I searched through baby name websites I would save names I liked. Phil nixed some of them but we both thought that Taeya Brynn sounded good. We have another baby girl name and middle name that we picked out while dating. If we ever have another girl, she'll probably get that name. Boy names are a little tougher for us. If I had given birth to a little boy we probably would still be working on a name!
As far as how to pronounce it, it's pronounciation is: TA-ya. The first "A" is a long "A" sound and the second "A" is a soft "a" sound. Does that make sense?
Here are a few pictures from Taeya's first bathtime at home today since I now have plenty to choose from. She did pretty well during it and hardly cried during the bath. Afterwards, she wasn't too happy getting dried off though.
I'm also including some pics of her in the Peanut Shell sling my mom bought for her. She, and I, both LOVE it! I can do things with her and she loves snuggling so close to Mommy.
Okay, so I know I'm going crazy on the blog. It's because I'm getting SO much rest! :) Better get used to it because it's going to continue (maybe not with the same intensity but it's a great way to keep track of the special events of Taeya's life)
