With the choice of a name for our firstborn of problems at us it was not absolute any.“ Alexey“ - and any disagreements.

my beloved grandfather (the mother`s father) was called Alexey Alekseevich. My tender children`s age is connected with it, my warmest and pleasant memories of the childhood - about it.

When to their kid was seven months old, it dashed away to Baikal, in a backpacking by swimming on kayaks though earlier everywhere happened to the girlfriend, the bride, and then and the wife beauty Zina. That travel obviously dragged on, found in a consequence which - what its things, boat splinters, and did not find the father of my future husband. Only the husband for the rest of life had melancholy for the father whom he, in general, did not know and remembered only according to stories of the mother. But he resolved to name the son Alexey in memory of the father.


So, without arranging, without reflecting and without asking any questions each other, we everyone independently named the son, only our arisen miracle, Alexey.

and developed, turned in a ball or straightened, painfully squeezing a uterus, was kicked and floundered in my stomach, responded to the name and reached for a father`s hand when that ironed mine (ours?) stomach. We had no doubts, it was the son, and called this little man Aleshk. Only once we began to doubt: and suddenly girl? Vainly tried to pick up a maiden name, but nothing went on mind. And we left, having safely forgotten, our ineffectual attempts.

In the put time the kid decided to see the world, to see us, the mother and the father. And it was it, our beloved sonny, ours of Aleshk.

Ultrasonic research at the second pregnancy showed to

Who are you? Katya? Elina? Marine? Perhaps Nadia, and can Zina? No, does not approach, all not that... And the baby does not react, does not respond. Not it this, not its. Galya, Natasha, Sveta, Olya? No, there are too much them, you for us only! Who are you? Who?
