What's in a name?

These are the porcelain dolls Mimi and Papa gave the girls a few weeks ago.

They have now been named. I believe it was a collaboration between both Bria and Chloe, but I am not 100% sure how the process went. I just know what the final outcome was:

From Left to Right: Mary had a Little Lamb, Heavenly Mother, Baker Girl, Baby Melody, and Rapunzel.

If you are wondering about Heavenly Mother, it's a bit of a long story. But in short form, we are memorizing "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" (I have to call it by its proper name or Joel will come after me and force me to recite it 100 times correctly) in our Family Home Evenings.

The part that talks about how we are each a spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents prompted the girls to ask about our heavenly mother. So we talked about it for a bit. They decided she must be very beautiful.

And, as it turns out, they were right. I think that's the most beautiful doll I've ever seen.

  1. This is so wonderful. I love the questions the Proclamation prompts these little sweet girls. Yes, Heavenly Mother must be very beautiful and very wonderful. Out of the mouths of babes.

  2. Absolutely delightful! What a sweet thing for your little ones to wonder about!
