“Our little one has arrived!

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.)
