First The Name Stealer. As you know we have had the name Tabitha picked out for a girl for quite some time. I liked this name and liked it even more that it was Chris’ suggestion as a girl name. You also know that we have been kicking around the idea of Ricki for a girls name as well. We have been on the fence…did we want to stick to Tabitha Lorelei, or go with the Ricki Lorelei, or did we want all the names Tabitha Ricki Lorelei…the decision was made for us by The Name Stealer.
I really and truly get to call her a The Name Stealer, because she is someone I know and have talked repeatedly about the names we had chosen. Lo and behold when she has her little girl what does she name her…Tabytha. Sure the spelling is different, but the name was stolen right out from under us. Chris tried to make me feel better by stating we were probably going to go with the Ricki anyhoo…I told him that was not the point. People you know shouldn’t steal names from you, it’s bad etiquette. If it were someone we didn’t know or knew distantly…I would probably fume a little bit & be done and feel secure that if we wanted the name Tabitha we could still use it. So now, Tabitha Lorelei is officially off the the table and if we have a little girl her name will be Ricki Lorelei.
I have some more belly pictures for you. These were taken by Andi’s friend Jada:
