Hubbs and I welcomed our daughter into the world three weeks ago, and not knowing her gender beforehand, I can’t tell you how delighted I am to have been given a little girl! Her name is Eleanor Verity, which means “God is my light and truth,” and that is truly our prayer for her.
As a kid I always felt a little slighted that there were no nicknames name for my name. Not wanting our little one to feel similarly shorted, Eleanor will have plenty of (adorable, I think) names to choose from if she prefers not to go by Eleanor. I think all the nicknames are so cute, that I haven’t even fully decided whether I’d like to call her Ellie, Ella, or Elle… I do know that when she’s wearing a fancy dress or drinking tea I’ll be calling her Eleanor.
So Hubbs and I are getting to know, love, and delight in this new member of the family. We really like what we see so far.
