Birth announcement: Owen Francis!

I posted a consultation for Katie and her husband back in June, and she’s let me know that her little green bean has arrived — a handsome little boy named … Owen Francis!

Katie writes,

Hi Kate!

I wanted to let you know our sweet baby boy was born June 28 at 12:58 pm via repeat c-section. He was 8lbs 7 oz. and 20.5 inches long. He is just the sweetest baby and we are all completely in love. He is my calmest, sleepiest baby by far. I guess he knows his role as #3. He’s simply going to have to be able to go with the flow.

As for names, we never could decide prior to his birth. I had a list and once we got back to my room we pulled out the list and started talking. We ended up deciding on Owen Francis for his name. I had been drawn to Francis as a middle name for a while. I have always loved the prayer of St. Francis Assisi and my hope is that Owen will be an instrument of peace in our family, because he is joining two wild and crazy older siblings! So far he is living up to his name.

As for Owen, you had mentioned St. Nicholas Owen several times recently and it was sticking with me. I’ve always liked it and even though it is more popular than I normally like, I don’t actually know any little Owens and have only taught 1 in 10 years! We also thought Owen was a good fit with Asher and Margo.

So, I want to thank you for your help, even though we didn’t use your specific suggestions for us, you inspired us all the same!

Yaaassssssss for St. Nicholas Owen!! Wooo!! And the combo Owen Francis is so great, I just love it!!

Congratulations to Katie and her husband and big sibs Asher and Margot, and happy birthday Baby Owen!!

Owen Francis
