Her Name Is Lula

You can call her Lou.


Remember how Bump said she looked like Lumpyhead? She looks a lot like Lumpyhead. She even has the same sucking blister on her upper lip and fatty deposits/baby whiteheads on her nose.
Lula, 1 day old

Lumpyhead, 1 day old

Granted, they're wearing the same hat, which is sort of cheating. And most one-day old babies look exactly like every other one-day old baby. But to my eye, at least, they look a lot alike.

So much alike, in fact, that when we were getting Lula ready to leave the hospital, I felt like we were dressing Lumpyhead in drag.


Now, if I could just get Barry Manilow out of my head. (she was a showgirl. . .)

A gorgeous name for a gorgeous girl. Even if she does look like Lumpyhead.

Her face looks a little rounder and the eyes are somehow different, but they look very much alike.

Adorable - a bit chubbier cheeks. Makes me want to reach out a squeeze them (and then smell that new baby smell).

I think they look alike also. Besides I have pictues of both of my kids in that same hat & they look nothing like yours!

They're both delicious. And the name?? I love love love it. Funky without being too See How Hip I am, I'm Trying To Give My Child an Outrageously Hip Name, but easy to spell and easy to say.

Because, you know, I'm sure you were all on pins and needles about passing the mommymatic baby name test, but now you can rest easy. :)

She and Lumpyhead are "delicious" as stefanierj said. Those cheeks - mmmm. Tasty. :D

They do look a lot a like.
I had that happen, in reverse order, I had my girl first and then a boy who looked exactly like her. I kept calling him by her name (especially during late night wakings)!

And I do love the name =) Very cute!

C'mon, fess up! That's the same kid in both pictures. :)

(Beautiful, though, either way.)

Like an unwanted house guest, you will never get Barry Manilow to leave.

Adorable pics.

Those hats are so hard to keep on their little heads-- you're so talented for being able to get them looking SO cute (twice!).

His name was Rico & c. Was he employed? Animal husbandry? Philatelist?

Lovely kids. You have my sympathy.
