Baby Girl Has a Name!!

I am so excited to say that our baby girl has a name! It took us a while (and a few lists), then we decided on the name we had originally talked about. Nothing else sounded right, or fit her.

Baby girl's name is

Hallie Mae

My grandmother AND Bryan's grandmother's name is Hallie, and we just love them so much. Mae is my great grandmother's middle name, and come to find out, Bryan's great grandmother's middle name is May.

We are aware of how southern Hallie Mae Borden sounds, but I just love it so much. :)

Bryce originally wanted her name to be Nala (from The Lion King), then changed it to Clarisse (from the Rudolph cartoon) when Christmas came around. Both of these names came before we even knew it was a girl. He was absolutely positive from the very beginning that this was his baby sister. :) Sweet boy with such amazing faith (I need to blog about that story). He was a little sad that we were not naming her Clarisse, but he quickly came around to Hallie. He now loves the name and (I think) has forgotten about Nala or Clarisse.

It's a....

We had our 20 week ultrasound today. We are so excited to announce that we have a HEALTHY baby. I felt at peace about it, and about the baby's heart, but it is wonderful to hear those words come from a doctor. Praise God!!!

We found out the gender, and went and picked up color appropriate cookies and necklaces for the boys to open. Here are a few pictures.

It's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!
