As you know, Betsy isn't her real name. Her legal name is Elisabeth. We've called her Betsy from the moment she was born. Betsy is her little girl name -- it's cute, it's short, it's easy to say, and while we knew that one day when she was older she'd probably want to switch over to Elisabeth, we figured she'd be Betsy for a while.

Until yesterday. Out of the blue, she starts calling herself Elisabeth (and even her full name of Elisabeth Catherine).

No. No. No. No.

You're too little to be Elisabeth Catherine. You're still my Betsy. My Betsy Boo-berry. I'm not ready for you to have your big kid name because you're not a big kid yet.

Stop growing up so fast kiddo!!! Mommy can't take it!!!!!!!!

Awww!! ((HUGS)) What a sweetie. She'll always be Betsy. I bet her full name is "new" to her and she's loving "trying it on".

AWWWWW - I know what you mean... I love Emmie as Emily's name... I love the little girl aspect of it - the cuteness and innocense of it...

One day I asked her if she wanted to go by Emmie or Emily and she said Emily

Good thing she goes back and forth....

Aww! I hope it's just a brief stage where she is learning and enjoying her full name and happily goes back to Betsy soon Max won't believe me that his name is Maximus If you ask him what his name is, he sometimes says Max but typically says Wilbur or Mickey Mouse.

I figured when she got older, we'd let her pick which name she wanted to go by -- if she wanted Betsy, then that's fine and if she wanted to go by Elisabeth, that would be fine too. We wanted to give her the cute little girl name as well as the mature big girl name. I just wasn't ready to hear her call herself that! We use the name just to get her to familiar with it -- that she is both Betsy and Elisabeth (like she knows that Mommy's other name is Amy) and we never use it in anger because I didn't want her to hate the name. So she's heard it, but not every day. She needs to stay my Betsy Boo-berry for a while longer.

And Amy -- I love Max's name choices! Where on earth did he come up with Wilbur?

I have NO idea He also talks about his friend Vincent, and as far as I know, he's never met a Vincent. There haven't been any Vincents in either day care class, or at church. I don't think he's ever seen Charlotte's Web, either. I really wish I knew how these toddlers think some days!

awe, why are they growing up so fast?

Gavin likes to say his first and last name for himself, too bad his last name doesn't make sense when he says it

So cute! They grow too fast!

Eli always introduces himself as "Eli Grey White" nowadays! It's hilarious!
