She's already brought so much joy into our lives and I know it'll be even more so once she's here. <3
For anyone interested in how we picked her name:
Before we found out if we were having a boy or girl, I really wasn't sure what the gender was. Some moms talk about how they KNEW they were having a boy or girl, and while that's not the case for everyone, I thought it would be cool to have that experience. But I had no idea. One night (after my typical 3 am bathroom wakeup), I was trying to go back to sleep and the name "Genevieve" suddenly popped into my head. I wasn't thinking about her or name ideas, it just randomly came to me. And in that moment as I looked the name meaning up, I suddenly felt we were having a girl. I was right! It felt like a special moment between God and me, and it meant a lot.
For her middle name, Robert and I decided on it together. I had a list of ideas, and we both liked the name Rose. I wasn't super set on it though like I was with Genevieve. Several days later, I was talking with God and asked him if he wanted to tell me anything about Genevieve. I felt him say, "You picked the right name," referring to her middle name. I then felt God give me the verse from Song of Songs 2:1, “I am truly his rose, the very theme of his song. I’m overshadowed by his love, growing in the valley!”
I realize this may not be everyone's cup of tea if you're not religious, but it was a very special process to me and it all just felt right. :) We're so excited to share it!
