Sips of the South...Belles and Beaus

I'm a little late on Friday's Sips of the South post, but better late than never right? This week's topic was to post about your little Belles and Beaus...and I am so blessed to have one of each! I'm also going to take a big step today...from the get go I've referred to my son as my Monkey and my daughter as the Bug. However, I feel that I can not let this post go by and not tell you the Bug's name because it is so fitting with her being a belle and all.

So here it goes...the Monkey's real name is Colson and the Bug's real name is Lilly-Belle. Lilly-Belle is named after my paternal g-mother's name is Lillian (which is her full first name) and my maternal g-mother's middle name was Belle. People ask all the time if we really call her Lilly-Belle, and the answer is yes! She is called Lilly-Belle, Lilly Bug, Bug, Buggy Boo, and she is my little Southern Belle in the making! Colson's name has a special meaning to us as well, and his middle name is a family name on my husband's side. So the cat's out of the bag, but I'll still be returning to calling them by their nicknames...I just couldn't resist sharing.

Here's a few pics of my little Beau:

and a few of my Belle:
Yes I had to use the photo copyrights! Hope you guys enjoyed seeing my little Beau and Belle!


  1. OMG -such sweet pictures- You are blessed with two beautiful children for sure :) I love that their names are from family history. By the time we had our little ladybug all our fam names had been taken. Thanks for joining sips of the south!

  2. You have some beautiful kids. Amazing how quickly they grow up, isn't it?

  3. Hi,
    I found your blog from my new bloggy friend over at Everday Everharts....she is such a doll....

    Anywho your kids are presh and I love the name Lilly Belle....what a southern belle in the making....

    My little girl's name is Kelcee but we almost named her Emily Sue (Sue is my MIL's middle name) which would have been real southern except we live in WV and it would have sounded more hillbilly LOL....

    Love your blog
    Summer :0)

  4. Your Beau and Belle are too sweet. I love your blog!!! Like you, I love, love, love using family names. As a mother of Allie Claire, I have been asked a number of times if we call her by both names...It seems simple, but I guess not for everyone (:


Go ahead and know ya' wanna!
