"What's in a name?

That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."
~ Juliet

I had not thought to share the name Mike and I have chosen for our Baby Girl with our "Internet family"! How sad of us! How rude! How inconsiderate! (We apologize.)

When asked in normal conversation (either in person or by phone) what we plan to name our daughter, we quickly reply with our answer. We aren't ones to keep secrets. Both because we want all those we love to share in our joy AND because this lady, in charge of the typing, couldn't keep a secret with a straight face or steady voice if her life depended on it!

It was not our intention to keep you all in the dark. We'd LOVE for you to know!

After much deciding, debating, pondering, compromise and careful thought about the millions of possibilities that our very own child would have to live with for the rest of her life (a daunting and slightly terrifying task to be in charge of)...we have made our choice...

Annaleigh Grace Weston
And the more I see it, say it, and hear it, the more I fall in love with it (and that's just her NAME, not even HER)!
There are approximately 7 more weeks to go until our due date and I can't wait to meet our sweet Annaleigh! But as I'm coming to realize, she will make her debut when SHE'S good and ready...early, on time, OR late. We shall see. We shall see....

  1. Beautiful name!!!! When I saw it for the first time somewhere here on your blog or something - I loved it. Great choice.
