Last Friday we took a little trip to Huntsville to introduce Annie to Adam's grandmother, Annie's namesake. Even before we knew if this baby was a boy or a girl, Adam loved the name Annie and wanted to honor his grandmother by using her name.
It couldn't be a more perfect fit.
Of course, grandma thought she was super sweet and she just laughed and laughed and laughed as she held her. Grandma Annie is ninety years old and we counted that she has thirty three grandchildren + great grandchildren (with #34 on the way!). She is an incredible example of grace and strength and spunk and beauty and legacy. We couldn't be more thrilled to have a daughter named for her.
In Hebrew, Annie means favor and grace and the English meaning of Annie is prayer.
Elise means consecrated to God or oath of God. Elise is my middle name, too. :)
