And She Shall Be Called...

Are you ready for this? The unveiling of 'her' name? If you are - please read on. If you're not, then close down this page & check back in April. :)

After much discussion, Tim & I have chosen to name our daughter Eloise Morgan. We will call her 'Ella'. Louise is my mother-in-law's middle name & Morgan was my grandmother's maiden name. I think Grandma would be proud to know that we used her name - I'm sure she's smiling down on us right now...

Okay - so now that I've told you - here are the rules:
1. As the parents of Ella we reserve the right to change her name at any time up until the first 24 hours of her life. After that -we won't change it.
2. We reserve the right NOT to change her name.
3. If you like her name - hooray!
4. If you don't - we don't want to know :)
5. I've got to stop making this silly list & go get a snack. Ella is hungry...

I LOVE the name!!! It is so cute, especially by calling her Ella (that name is in my top 3!) Yay for finalizing :)

I think you picked a winner!!

You know I like it ... speaking of ... where's my Starbucks card?

Maybe instead we'll call the "extra minutes" my gift :P.

I suspect that after many months of thinking of her as Ella, talking about her as Ella and calling her Ella, the name will probably be hard to change ... unless she comes out a Jude ... then I think you should change it :).

Alright, enough rambling from me ... back to sewing ... bug!

Very cute! How fun to be able to call her by name now. See you and your Ella belly on Tuesday...hopefully. :)

I really like that! It's so fun when you finally have a name picked out, now you'll really start to see (or rather, feel) her personality develop!
