Hopefully you can infer by reading this name that we are having a baby girl!
We chose to name our daughter Amelia because it was one of the only names that we could agree on. It's a pretty name, and it's an older name - so it will hopefully withstand the test of time. I have always wanted to name a daughter with an "A" name because I think they are feminine and beautiful (except for Agnes, maybe).
Jeremy chose Elizabeth and I agreed to it because of 1) the story of Elisabeth in the Bible 2) because my Aunt Sharon's middle name is Elizabeth, and I love her very much 3) My great-grandmother's name was Elizabeth and 4) I'm a fan of Elizabeth Bennet from "Pride and Prejudice." Elizabeth may seem like a "filler" middle name, but it really isn't.
We are super excited about this next chapter of our lives. I am having a daughter! I can't believe it! The truth still hasn't set in! I'm so excited to have a little girl. Jeremy is excited, too - albeit a bit shocked. He was just sure those Farr genes were going to give him a boy. :)
We went to our Fetal Fotos appointment today and found that our little Amelia is a stubborn booger. She sat on her bottom and kicked and moved her arms out, but she refused to get into "the" position! She's already stubborn like her grandmother (and you can guess which one I'm talking about here if you'd like - because it can be either one)! Amelia was modest, but she finally revealed her gender after about forty minutes of being poked and prodded.
Can I just add here that I am SORE? Amelia didn't mind being poked and prodded - but her mama DID!
I'm still in a bit of shock. I'm going to have a daughter.
I pray she grows up to be a woman of integrity, honor, and compassion. I pray that the light and love of the One who made her will abide in her heart. I pray that I won't be foolish enough to ever forget how special and absolutely precious she is. I love her already.
Stay tuned for more updates on our adorable daughter. I can't wait to meet her, and I know some of you can't wait, either!
