What's in a name?

Now that we know we are having a baby girl we can start the name game. We both tossed out some names we liked but now it's time to get serious and pick one. Who knew this would be so difficult?! It's a lot of pressure.... this kids got to live with this name forever, or at least until she's 18 and can change it to Princess Consuela Banana Hammock (Friends reference for all those who don't get it). Corissa's number one pick was shot down by Spencer but with no real alternatives. That means it's back the think pad or at least back to Corissa's sticky notes with names. Then we found it... ELLIE It means noble, exalted, sun ray, and shining light. It's perfect for our little girl!! Now for a middle name. This one's easy. We both wanted a name that meant something to us and so Corissa suggested using the middle name of her best friend Lindsay who is also the one who introduced her to the Gospel. Done! LOUISE We loved the way the names sounded together and Corissa even cried when she pictured holding our baby girl and calling her
We love it!!
For our 22 week update - Ellie is kicking up a storm and Spencer was able to feel her for the first time today. It's fun to watch Corissa's belly move! She has a hard time sitting still and not giggling while Ellie moves around. Corissa felt her for the first time a few weeks ago at church but the past two days have been really fun and active. Corissa is feeling great and her belly has really popped out. We'll take a profile shot of the bump at our next doctor's appointment.
