****shameless amounts of pictures up in here…****
Baby Girl Brown is here!!! I was pretty patient with the waiting until about a week before her due date. When she still wasn’t here on her due date, I basically decided that she was never going to come. But she did come (ha! Imagine that!)! She came one day after her due date on Wednesday, October 26th at 11:03 p.m. She weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces. The hospital measured her at 20 inches buuuuuut she was re-measured at her first doctor’s appointment and they said 18.5 inches. Which, let’s be real, makes a lot more sense;)
At the hospital, Ben kept calling her “baby fresh” to which a nurse said, “Oh, is her name ‘Fresh?'” Which just goes to show that people are naming their kids whatever the heck they want these days…;)
But, no…her name’s not Fresh…although she is fresh…
We named her Wendy Clara.
We had our ultrasound at 19 weeks. We found out we were having a girl and as I lay there in the exam room, I thought, “I wonder what her name will be…” But immediately after that thought came this thought: “No, her name is Wendy.”
When we left the appointment, I asked Ben what names he was considering now that we knew it was a girl. And he said, “I don’t know, I just feel like her name is Wendy.”
The middle name was a lot harder to decide on. But we went with Clara as it honors 2 of our ancestors: Ben’s great grandpa Claire Moses Farnsworth, and my great-great grandmother Clara Rabus.
We’ve had so much love sent our way.
I mean, Ben absolutely flooded instagram direct with pictures and no one even complained about it (thanks, family!).
But seriously. Our baby is loved and I love that.
