Two countries, 12 weeks. Alike or not?
I wasn't so hung up on this as I was on the fret that people would think the name India was just too weird. Which was why she didn't have a name for the first 24 hours. It would've been more normal to go with Lillian as her first name, but I didn't want to wind up with her being called Lily, much as I like the (now very popular) name.
Very few people have pointed the country thing out, though, for which I am glad, because it's not like we were trying to cover the globe with our progeny.
It's a name that elicits reactions. People make it clear that they like the name or think it's bizarre.
"India! What a pretty name!"
"India? Huh. That's different."
One of our neighbors remembered her name as Asia. I put him in the camp of geographically in the correct area and not-so-much on the India name.
This is fine with me. I wanted an unusual name for her, and I think it's pretty. I've said before that the only thing I particularly like about Lisa is that everywhere I've traveled, people have been able to pronounce it.
Anyway, this wasn't going to be about the names. Rather, I was heading for a comparison of my two kids at approximately 12 weeks of age.
I've got Indi in a lot of pinkaliciousness, but in this picture here, she's wearing a shirt of Jordan's that I saved because I love it so.
Alike or not?
