Birth announcement: Peter Edward!

Blair from Blair’s Blessings, whose consultation I posted on Halloween, has let me know her little guy has arrived and been given the so-handsome name … Peter Edward!

Blair writes,

Our little one has arrived!

Peter Edward
7 lbs 15 oz, 19 in

Welcomed with love by Blair and Steven
and siblings Mary Clare, Elizabeth, Steven, Thomas, and Katherine

Thanks to your encouragement and that of the Sancta Nomina commenters, I felt better about choosing Peter. We still had a hard time choosing the middle name though! We ended up going with one of the few names that neither of us nixed, Edward. It was the name of my husband’s paternal grandfather and the church where I was baptized. It also highlights our British heritage and current parish involvement in the Anglican Ordinariate of the Catholic Church. My 6th c-section went very smoothly, and we are so grateful to God for this gift of new life!

Peter is a name I’ve recently been loving — and I love that Blair felt we were all helpful in her becoming comfortable with it! (And now he can use that monogrammed Peter bag!) I also love the significance of Edward! “It also highlights our British heritage and current parish involvement in the Anglican Ordinariate of the Catholic Church” — definitely seems like Edward was the right middle name!!

Congratulations to the whole family, and happy birthday Baby Peter!! (And if you’re into birth stories like I am 😍, Blair posted Peter’s here.)

  2. Congratulations! He’s so beautiful, with a handsome name to match!

    I feel like Blair and I have a strange kinship…we have both had multiple c-sections and we are both members of Anglican Ordinariate parishes! Prayers for a good recovery and transition for your family!

  3. Congratulations! What a beautiful baby!!!!

    I’m so glad they went with Peter since it was dad’s long-time favorite. It’s a HUGE favorite of mine, too, though my husband didn’t want it in a first name spot so we ended up with a little John Peter.

    Edward is so good in the middle name spot! What a wonderful, handsome name.

    Welcome, baby Peter, and God bless you!
