And the Name is...

Since Michael has already tagged photos of her on Facebook, I figured I'd better make the announcement here, and fast!

We have not been intentionally keeping our newest little girl's name a secret, but we have been keeping it between the three of us for a few days to make sure that this was indeed her name.

So without further adieu...

Our newest little girl's name is Eleanor Mae; we will be calling her Nora. The meaning of both Eleanor and Nora is honor and mercy. It is our prayer that she will be an honorable, merciful little girl.

Sorry to have kept you in suspense for so long!

(In other news, Phoebe seems to be getting better...and Michael worked from home today so that I could really rest during Phoebe's down time. I'm hoping that with some new medicine and a whole lot of prayer I'll be back on my feet in no time!)

OK, I have to tell you that Eleanor has been on the top of our top-secret girl names list! So if we have a girl don't think we stole the name! It goes without saying...I think you've picked a great name!

What a great name. It is so sweet and has a great meaning too! We haven't decided on a name yet. It is so hard.
