So sorry to keep you all waiting...

And sorry there is no picture but if I made you wait until I get them downloaded, you wouldn't know her name for at least another day.

Without further ado...

What a great story!! Welcome baby Elsie!

I'm surprised no one offered their opinions in that time. I can't imagine not having the name 99% hammered out at birth because my in-laws would swarm in and batter me to pieces until I named the baby after one of them. Then again, you don't have a Big Fat Greek Family descending on you in your delicate state. I digress.

I can't wait to see pictures! CONGRATULATIONS! You made a great decision. Easy nickname, original full name. Cool.

wanted to add that my MIL freaked when we named Eleanor almost 14 years ago. She thought it was horrible & mean thing to do. MIL got over it & Eleanor LOVES her name.

It's lovely and perfect and so special to you guys...and Elsie just makes me melt.

(And did I ever tell you that my grandmother thought that we'd named Penn Ten?

Yay! Congrats on deciding on her name! I really like Elspeth it was on our list for Eloise, even though Eloise did win in the end for us.



Thank you for the sig Mary
