the name.


We have officially decided on the name for our daughter.
We wanted to name her after both of our mothers.
My mother is Evelyn and John's mother is Shelley.
We combined their names and Evaleigh was the result.
Even though we didn't keep the original spellings in tact, we were able to keep the sounds of the names.
EJ's middle name is Joy after John's grandmother Joy Murphy.
We will call her EJ for short.

I love how sentimental her name is.  She will come from a long line of strong and magnificent women.  I am so proud she is joining us.

My sister and I were snuggled up in my bed together the other night and she said to me, "I can't believe this little person has a name and an identity.  She will always be apart of our lives now."

I couldn't agree more and I wouldn't have it any other way.  

I am amazed that out of love can come another life...

I love that name and I love its personal significance. My mom always told me names should have a heritage in them and a meaning, something for a child to grow into, to live up to. And I agree. :) So excited for you both!
