I've been tagged by Gabrielle to give the meaning of your kids’ names, and write about what or how or why you gave the name to your kids.
I don't think we thought about what Amelia and Grace meant. We just tried to find some names we could agree on, which was quite tricky. Everything I suggested was dismissed. I really wanted a Milly or a Molly, but Chris wouldn't agree. He seemed to like Amelia and didn't realise until after she was born that I would be calling her Milly. I think Grace was a name Chris suggested and it really grew on me. I don't think I ever realised how hard it would be for two people to agree on names.
If you feel like sharing I would love to hear your stories on naming your children.
I wasn't going to post a picture of the socks I'm making my Dad until I'd finished both, but that could take forever and I am so impressed I have finished one. Chris kindly modelled it for me - much easier to take pictures of socks when you aren't wearing them. I am using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Black Watch which is so soft - wonderful to knit with.
