Everytime someone asks me my baby's name I'll answer, "Bella", and then I'll say "Isabella, but we call her Bella."
Then most of the time they'll say, "Oh, I love that name!"
I can't lie and say that I'm not glad since my sister was not shy to tease me about my choice of names. She obviously doesn't like the classy stuff.
Anyway, on the day of finding out we were having a girl I also had a root canal that morning (fun). As we left the imaging center we were shouting with joy about the fact that we were having a girl. My husband looked down at my doctor's address on my pain medicine prescription and it read "Isabella Lane"
He said that he liked that name a lot, and that's all she wrote!
It was written.
That evening I announced to him that our baby's name had to be Isabella. He agreed. No regrets on our part. The name speaks for itself. CLASSY!
