One of the first things we learned about Y was that she has this really high, soft voice. She has to practically yell at me sometimes for me to hear…and it is still a whisper! But when she laughs, watch out! That laugh comes from somewhere big deep down inside that little body. Her laughter is deep, rolling, fun, and terribly infectious. She also has this funny little giggle that comes out whenever she is embarrassed or being tickled. So.much.fun!
She hadn’t been here long before I started calling her “Giggly Gus.”
When I told her that we would call her that all the time, she would tell me, “NO!” Then she would giggle.
Recently though, she has taken to the name and even sometimes calls herself “Giggly Gus.” I guess when your sister’s name is Bubba, Gus sounds perfectly okay!
From here on, our Y shall be called Gus.
