You may think that "Critterbug & Cricket" is the silliest name that you have heard of. That's ok because my kids, my husband and I are pretty silly people. So...where does the name come from?? When I was pregnant with my daughter, my husband and I decided not to find out what we were having. We wanted to have a nickname to call the baby and the first thing that came to mind was "Critter". Yea...I'm not sure why. Most people nickname their babies cute things like "peanut" or "little bit" or "munchkin" but for some reason we chose a name that connotates a small, furry animal. Throughout the pregnancy, the name gradually became "Critterbug" because I had a hunch we were having a girl and I thought it was a little "cuter". Anyway, long story short...the name stuck all 9+ months and when I got pregnant a second time we felt like we needed another interesting great nickname for our growing baby and there you have "Cricket".

Critterbug (a girl) was born August of 2007 and Cricket (a boy) was born October 2009. They are a source of joy and inspiration and I hope their personalities can be felt in each of my creations.
