Ever since I started my blog back in January 2016 I’ve tried to be as honest and open about my family life in my posts as I possibly can but one thing I have never disclosed is my children’s names. From my very 1st post I’ve always referred to them as K and D and I honestly don’t know why. I felt like I almost needed to protect them from the internet which is ridiculous really given that their pictures are up there for everyone to see and a lot of people who read my blog and follow me on social media know their names anyway! I’ve always found it difficult when writing about them to just say “K” or “D” and I’ve slipped up on a few occasions over on Instagram/Twitter. Plus if you were to look on my husbands Twitter you’d blatantly see their names on his bio anyway (he’s Stateside84 if anyone cares to give him a follow! 😉 )
So I thought I’d do a little blog post and introduce them, my beautiful little children that you read so much about.
Katie is 3 years old (going on 13!) she’s outgoing, bubbly and very intelligent. She likes to talk ALOT and can be quite bossy at times. We chose the name Katie Grace purely because we liked it and not for any other reason. We didn’t know when we were pregnant with her what sex she was so if she was a girl, she was Katie and if she was a boy, she was Jake. It’s as simple as that. She is our beautiful first born, the daughter I always wanted and the little girl we adore.
Dylan is 15 months old and our miracle baby read here. He has a smile that could melt the hardest of hearts and a temper like a raging bull! (I’m hoping it’s a faze haha!) He is just full of gorgeousness. We found out we were having a boy at our 20 week scan but it took us 5 days after he was born to give him a name. He was labelled “baby boy” for the first 120hrs of his life. We wanted to make sure his name fitted his personality and I think it does just that. He is beautiful with his thick blonde hair and large eyes. Our little fighter, our baby and our son.
