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 grandmothers...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:
