Valencia Love

Surprisingly there are 9,277 Valencia's in the United States (courtesy of
but I doubt any of their middle names are Love. A break down of her name meaning is this:

VALENCIA (Brave) LOVE (Love) HARRIS (Home Ruler)

We were certainly on point naming her this. That being said, it is interesting but the meaning of a name is not really something I buy into. The only true meaning of her name is what she perceives it to be. And she believes that everyone is obligated to love her because her middle name is Love. When someone asks her name, she is always sure to never leave Love out.

In a quest to make sure I can revisit these precious years whenever I want. I've been taking video, photos and asking them alot of questions to journal for their scrapbooks.
Here are the sweet answers she came up with for her questionnaire.

What is your favorite.....

COLOR: Orange
MOVIE: Snow White
DRINK: Orange Juice (because it's orange)
ANIMAL: Penguins
ACTIVITY OUTSIDE: Playing in the Sandbox

When you are sad. What Cheers you up? "Hugging Mom"

What is your favorite toy? "Penguin stuffed Animal"

What are you afraid of? "Ghosts"

What's you favorite thing to do with Grandma & Papa? "Eat Waffles"

What is your favorite thing to do as a family? "That's alot of questions Mom"
And so with that, our question session was over :) Which says alot about her as well. A sweet , well behaved little girl who likes to sit quietly and play.

What a beautiful little girl! Your interview with Valencia put a lump in my throat ... the beauty of innocence. It is only through innocence that we are able to show our true selves and to be so unaware of self ... lacking self-consciousness ... if that's a word! :-)
