I realized I no longer have an infant and was putting all my baby stuff away this week. Heidi, of course, asked me what I was doing, and began to request every item I put in the box. I told her I was saving these things in case God were ever to bless us with another baby.
"Oh, yes!" She exclaimed with stars in her eyes. "We could have another baby, Momma! God could give us one and I would name her Sheena! I would take care of her and love her and pat her, just like this!" as she demonstrates the patting on my leg.
"Well, it probably won't be for a long time, Heidi", I say, as I'm realizing she's now expecting a sibling within the week, "and what if He gives us a boy?"
A look of disgust passes her face, "He wouldn't do that, Momma, He will give us a little baby girl, and I will name her Sheena, or Spicy, or maybe pickley-toes. Well, maybe not Pickley-toes, but Sheena or Spicy. Yes, or Goola."
I hate to disappoint her, but I think Karl and I might do the naming if the chance presented itself, and personally, I'd be thrilled to be blessed with another little girl, OR boy, I just don't think it'll be happening within the week. As I told her, we'll leave the details up to God, He always knows what's right.
