We had a great (I mean REALLY GREAT) Gender Reveal Party. I was a little skeptical about having a party like this, because I have never been to one myself, but I am so glad that we decided to go for it. We had so much fun hanging out with friends and family that we don’t always see. We couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of my Mom, Mother-in-Law, Aunts, Grandparents, and Besties Tori and Mariah! Mom and Hubby’s Mom were the only ones who knew the sex of the baby…and they had a BIG secret to keep!
Here are just a few quick pics from the day. Thanks Aunt Karen for being lead photographer! 🙂
Hubby and I have been set on baby names for a while now. Baby Harvey will be named after two of the most influential women in my life, my two grandmothers. They have both (in very different ways) molded me into who I am today. I hope that my daughter takes after these ladies who are truly Proverbs 31 beautiful women inside and out.
But a few days ago I started wondering what Baby Harvey’s name would actually mean, and what that would say about her character. Here is what I found:
Adeline (German origin) means Noble
Faye (English origin) means Confidence, Trust, or Belief
What a beautiful thought!!
Here is a bit more that was said on the site just for fun (we will see how accurate it turns out to be!)
“People with this name are excited by change, adventure, and excitement. They are dynamic, visionary and versatile, able to make constructive use of freedom. They fight being restricted by rules and conventions. They tend to be optimistic, energetic, intelligent, and to make friends easily. They may be changeable, restless, untidy, and rebellious.” (sheknows.com)
In related news:My visit to the ultrasound yesterday showed the baby measuring consistently a 1.5 weeks bigger in all areas of her body and therefore they needed to move my due date up to the end of November. So, I went from being 20 weeks pregnant to 21 weeks pregnant right there in that doctor’s office. Wow! This pregnancy is flying by!
Summer time to me means: travel and new experiences, icee pops and watermelon, suntan lotion and salty air, sleeping in and snuggling with my furbaby, Miss Lily, and LIST!
