About Me

I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.

Week 21 - Nicknames

Forget "Two Peas in a Pod" the twins have affectionately been given the nicknames of "Ketchup & Mustard" in our household.

I've been asked dozens of times already and I'm sure the expecting parents hear it frequently too - "Any names?"  To my knowledge K&S are undecided on this important decision and as of our last discussion,  it wasn't even a matter of narrowing down the list. The list was in fact getting longer not shorter as they shared a few favorites that I hadn't heard before when this topic had come up previously. LOL

I always love to hear what kids come up with for names.  Had our now twelve year old been in charge of naming her next sibling when I was expecting, we would have been awaiting the arrival of Lala or Superdog.  Thankfully Jason and I had veto power and we now have Lauren. ;)  While at dinner the other night I asked our two youngest girls what they thought the babies should be named and there was no delay, "Ketchup and Mustard!" Lauren says with a giggle.  So, as of now Baby A is Ketchup and Baby B is Mustard and we will continue to call them this until mom and dad settle on some fitting titles for their lil guys.  No pressure K&S. ;)

Hahahahahaha!!!! I would bet that the nicknames stick - even after mom & dad give them real names :) I still call Emma "Little Squirt" which is what I called her before we even knew she was a she!

Too cute! :-) If I was preggo now, I'd bet the baby(ies) would get some sort of Kung Fu Panda nicknames.
