Gillaspie Origins...

Picture I drew of the girls as their alter-egos...from left to right Rogue, Phoenix, and Jade.

This is a LONG over due post. Most of you have noticed that our daughters names are not, what you would call, normal. My wife and I came to the conclusion that we had to name our girls something unique and one of a kind...I think we accomplished that. The wife and I have VERY common names and we are both tired of being one of three _________(fill in any popular name here) in any given room. We knew that we needed to give our kids names that would not be duplicated in their classrooms as they grew up. We had many options when we learned that triplets were in our near future...we could go with names that sounded the same or start with the same letter...or just throw out any name we could think of...nope we found a theme. SUPERHERO's, yup that's right superhero's...there are some really good names out there in comic books. We came up with Rogue, Jade, and Phoenix. Some people may know exactly where those names are from and other people haven't a I will try and set it all straight.
*Rogue - Comes from the Marvel comic Universe. She is one of the X-Men. Her powers include the ability to involuntarily absorbs the memories, physical strength, and (in the case of superpowered persons) the abilities of anyone she touches.
*Jade - Comes from the DC comic Universe. She was linked with the Justice League at one point. Her powers include the ability to generate green energy and shape it into constructs according to her will just like that of here father, Green Lantern.
*Phoenix - Comes from the Marvel comic Universe. She is one of the X-Men. Phoenix's real name is Jean Grey and was born with telepathic and telekinetic powers and is one of the most powerful superhero's.
For those parents out there looking to name there kids something a little different, just look into your childhood...go dig out those comic books from the attic and take a trip down memory lane.
On another note our house is becoming babble central...the girls are creating their voice with great enthusiasm. Rogue is a chatter box after she eats...she sits there staring at you just flapping her jaw. Jade would rather squawk and squeak while playing with her toys instead of just sitting in silence. Phoenix is VERY random when she likes to join doesn't have to be for any specific reason other than to just let it all out.
RASPBERRIES all around...Phoenix started to do them about three days ago and now the other two girls have picked it up from her...Phoenix is by far our little motor boat with her I am writing this she is blowing raspberries all over the place as she spins in a circle on the floor like a little break dancer.
Here are a few pictures and a couple babble videos...ENJOY.

We went to our local parade today and had a blast can't you is Aunt Diana holding all the girls...Jade, Phoenix, and Rogue.

Jade just hanging out loving the parade...she was the only one to stay awake the whole time and LOVED it. The other two didn't like the loud noises at all so they cried and then fell asleep...

Phoenix making faces at the camera...

Here is another Nix face...

Rogue being all cheerful...
