I’ve debated whether to announce our coming baby girl’s name. On one hand I’ve wondered if it would be a let down but then, I remember we gave away Micah’s name to everyone before he was born and I felt as though people were able to start connecting with him more fully this way. But really, at the end of the day, I’m simply NO good with surprises!
On that note, Elizabeth will be her name (95% sure:) but we will call her “Ellie” much of the time. I’ve been in love with Ellie for several years now and Rick likes it too. After becoming friends with an amazing girl at church named Elizabeth, a friend to us, an aunt and bi-weekly baby sitter to Micah (who insists on doing it for free), we were inspired. Now we’re just stumped on a middle name!
While I haven’t gone crazy yet buying girlie loot, I have bought a few things. On Monday, to my surprise, we received a “Bon Bebe” bib and wash cloth set from my older sister Maryanne, addressed to Baby Ellie Rose. How cute is that?:)
