What's in a Name?

Okay, so we picked a name. Sorry, didn't wait for any suggestions. Besides, my husband is so picky, he really only likes two names out of every name in the whole universe. So you didn't have much of a shot anyway.

We were going to wait to see her before naming her but since that will be a long time and calling her "baby" didn't make her seem real, I just had to call her something. There are two reasons we went with the the name we did. I was telling my family the two names we were considering and allowing them to vote, when the next day my mom called and asked if she could have her church choir pray for "baby _____". And my heart melted. The other reason is because the two best meanings of the name we chose is "Princess" (say it with me now...awww...) and "God's creative power." Creative? I'll say!

So, without further ado. Mateo's new little sister's name is....Maya.

Stay posted cuz I got lots of stories and updates to share. Mostly about shoes and other cute girly baby stuff. But also about Mateo. Cuz he's really the reason for this blog. And he'll always be my first baby. But he is looking forward to Maya coming home. I'll tell you all the cute stuff he's been saying about her in my next post. But for now, Mateo and I are going consignment shopping! That's really the best part, isn't it?

Yay! Love it. This was the other IRL name we considered for Lucy, and is still my favorite girl name, but when we met her, PB said she looked more like her actual name.

Big congratulations again!!!

Love it! It's a "goddess" type name. I can see an ancient Maya at the top of an pyramid with hands outstretched to "her people". She'll be a queen!
