today... I am LOVING....
okay okay, so I knooow that it has been a long time coming but I have promised all you wonderful friends that I would share "her" name with you...
K & I had talked about names before we were even pregnant. There were of course several names that I liked
and had written down in a notebook for future reference and so we tossed several of them back and forth a few times. Almost immediately, I had decided on a middle name that I looooved- and so did he... and then we tossed around several first names as well that we again liked. When we got to this one particular name we both loved it and it stuck. So anytime we would talk about a future daughter, we would call her by name... (even though she didn't exist at the time)! So to say this name has been picked out for quite a while is a little of an understatement :). I do love names that people chose based on their meanings but really, at first, we just went with something that we loved, something that sounded pretty, feminine and of course took us back to our southern roots... and it has great meaning too!).
So here it is... the moment that you have all been waiting for... her name is:
So that is our little angel... Raleigh Grace ... wah-lah! :)
(she will go by a double name :) )
(pronounced rah-lee- like the capitol of NC, and no, that is not why we named her that ha!)
