My little brother's name.....

When we adopted from Russia a co-worker's son, Quinn, made a welcome home card for Igor. Quinn drew his family on the card. Each family member was a different color. I was and still am touched by this little boy who made a card for our son.

Quinn started a new tradition in our family, whenever a family member is drawn, they are a specific color- Daddy is blue, Mommy is pink and Igor is yellow (Igor's choice). We always write our names under the pictures. A couple months ago we added Igor's little brother to our family picture (Igor assigned him orange) but we haven't written his name. Today, Igor and I were drawing with chalk. I drew our family and started to write our names. Igor told me to write his little brother's name. I asked what his name was and Igor spelled BOC. I asked Igor how to pronounce the name and he spelled out the letters BOC. Then he added- "That how you say it, mom." Hmmm, I am pretty sure we will not be naming our second son BOC, but for now, that's his name.

How cute! I don't think I've seen B-O-C in any of the baby names books that I have, but you never know.

So cute! Eben was adamant about naming his little brother Nigel! He's settled that he's going to call him that as his "nickname" and there's no changing his mind on the subject. :) Isn't it fun to watch our little boys as they begin to see themselves as BIG brothers? I can't wait to see what it will be like once his little bro is home (he also calls him his little bro).
