"What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet." That is a famous quote from Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. And for first time parents, thinking what name to give our child is a "project" in itself. When we found out we were pregnant, I immediately researched the meanings of different names that starts with the letter J, since our names starts with the letter J. I had a list to choose from, but if it was a boy, Joachim was already at the top of my list. It was supposed to be pronounced as "jo-wah-keem", but here in the Philippines, they pronounce it as "wah-KEEN." It means established by God and it is also the name of Mama Mary's father. Joaqui's second name is Stefan, pronounced as "stef-FAHN" and it means the crowned one.
Today, Joaqui is exactly 2 years and 8 months and these pictures were taken about two weeks ago while he was playing in Gymboree.
