My New Niece is Here!

My New Niece is Here!

My little sister; that I’ve always called ‘Shorty’ just had her 3rd daughter! (my newest niece!) I am so proud of her and excited for her family <3 Shorty is the only one of my siblings that has had children so far, so I have a gaggle of neices.

Her first two daughters (while unintentionally) were both named after US presidents; so while she doesn’t really want name suggestions, I couldn’t help myself!

Last name is either a 2 syllable ‘R’ name or a 3 syllable ‘P’ name; depending on what they choose to do.

      Thanks so much Alicia! She (rightfully!) ignored my suggestions and named her Harper Raye!
      I can’t wait to meet her, but living so far away, sadly it’s going to be awhile.

    Congratulations on the new arrival in your family! I love all the names you listed as they are beautiful and current. Naming can get very complicated once everyone adds their voice to the conversation. 🙂

      It sure can get complicated! Sometimes it feels like it’s the most stressful of becoming a new parent.
      Thanks so much for stopping by <3
