Christmas baby is here 🎄

Our third and last baby arrived on [name_u]December[/name_u] 22nd. Her name is [name_f]Tess[/name_f] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f].

[name_f]Tess[/name_f] was a name I found on Nameberry and suggested to my husband, who fell in love with it immediately. I went back and forth on it over the pregnancy (too short, incomplete sounding, etc), but what tipped the scales for me was my husband having a lot of fears about having a third child. Choosing his favorite name for her helped him feel more connected to her, and then when she was born I realized “Oh, she IS Tess.” And I’ve been in love with her name since!

[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] means “bearer of good news,” which is perfect for a [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] baby but also makes me think of [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m] 52:7, “How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, who proclaims peace…”

We have family in the Middle [name_u]East[/name_u] so we have been thinking about and praying for peace a lot this fall. I hope this little one grows up to know a more peaceful world!

[name_f]Tess[/name_f] joins big brother [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] and big sister [name_f]Willa[/name_f].
Thank you Berries for the name input and inspiration!

Huge congratulations :tada:

[name_f]My[/name_f] gosh she’s such a cutie pie what a gorgeous [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] present. [name_f]May[/name_f] this [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] angel provide you so much happiness for the whole family! Uncertainties about expanding your family is a lot so I’m hoping your husband having his newest addition with the name he loves helps quash any understandable fear. I also hope you’re feeling good mama and adjusting to being a mother of three!

I love T.ess Ev@ngeline such a beautiful name! She’s so classic and whimsical truly stunning. I also have to agree that Ev@ngeline is such a fitting name to conjure up feelings of peace something I pray we shall find soon. [name_m]Just[/name_m] like you I have family in the Middle [name_u]East[/name_u] and it’s tough when all you can do is pray and hope. Ev@ngeline is a name that feels symbolic to those emotions along with also having Christmassy undertones. Beyond perfect middle name choice for your girl and she sounds fab with [name_f]Tess[/name_f].

Wishing you all the best and happy holidays :sparkles::christmas_tree:
