For this week’s topic, Jessica suggested 10 photos from your phone OR 10 names you considered for your kids.  I was going to do the phone pictures, but I am sick and can’t figure out how to get them out of my phone (it’s a new phone)… so, here are the ten names we considered for the kids:

  1. Tarah
  2. Tara
  3. Zachary
  4. Ashleigh
  5. Taylor (this was a solo choice, the hubs didn’t like it)
  6. Jeffrey  (after my brother)
  7. Renee (as a middle name for Tarah)
  8. Troy (what we chose)
  9. Morgan (what we chose)
  10. Michael

So, now I get to elaborate… LOL.  Troy is named after Troy Polamalu from the Pittsburgh Steelers.  His middle name is Michael for my brother (his middle name also).  Morgan was supposed to be Ashleigh Morgan for Ashley Force.  About two weeks before we had the twins, the hubs decided it sounded better as Morgan Ashleigh.  I have a sneaky suspicion the Morgan came from Morgan Lucas who is also a (male) drag racer.

Old habits die hard… for the first week or two of her precious life, I called her by the wrong name on several occasions.

So, I am the proud mom of a son named after a Pittsburgh Steelers safety and a daughter named after two drag racers.

Of course, my dog’s name is Deuce Malibu after both our race cars… so, it doesn’t surprise me a bit.
