Arriving 3 weeks early on [name_u]July[/name_u] 24th is the newest member of our family! [name_f]Flora[/name_f] [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] came into this world at 4lbs 13oz and perfectly healthy! Her 2.5 year old sister [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] is over the moon and trying to help mama with anything [name_f]Flora[/name_f] related.
I fell in love with the name [name_f]Flora[/name_f] when I had [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] and was already looking for a perfect sister name. Somehow I knew I would have two girls at some point and I was right! To me [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] and [name_f]Flora[/name_f] fit so well together, both uncommon in the US but vintage and remind me of two fairy’s running through the forest.
[name_f]Catherine[/name_f] is after my beloved grandmother who raised me and passed away in my teens. I knew I would always name one of my kids after her. I want the undying love that she gave me to be reflected on this child.
We are happy at home and soaking in this family time. Thank you everyone on nameberry for helping figure out her name! It made the process so much easier for hubby and I!
