You all might remember that Jett's birthday is just 10 days before mine. This means we share a birthday month.
Jett and I also share initials.
This wasn't on purpose. In fact it was a few days after we'd had him before I realized he had the same initials as me.
We were stuck for boys names...we pretty much had exactly one name, so when he came out a boy it was done.
But alas he is JLB and so am I.
At first I thought it was sweet, his name is full of meaning, his first name is a surname from my paternal side of the family and his middle name is a first name from Dom's paternal side of the family. And then the initials are the same as mine? So cute, right?
It turns out it's kind of obnoxious.
I'm a sucker for letter necklaces. I love my B necklace and I've worn it for years. I bought it before I was married and then conveniently married someone with the same first letter of his last name so it still works.
Then when Jett was born I wanted to get a J but SO ANNOYING THAT MY INITIAL IS ALSO J because I now walk around with my J and my B and anyone who knows my name probably just assumes I'M A BIG FAN OF MY OWN INITIALS.
Ugh, I kind of wish now that he has his own initial so that I'm OBVIOUSLY wearing HIS INITIAL around my neck and not my own.
I also really want this:
But again...if I get a J it's just like it's for me.
Live and learn. It's only something Jett and I have to deal with OUR ENTIRE LIVES.
Next baby will have his/her own initials.
First baby FAIL!
