Birth announcement: Lucy Adelaide!

I posted a birth announcement for Rosie (from A Blog for My Mom)’s sixth baby two years ago, and I’m excited to share that she’s had baby no. 7 — a little lady given the gorgeous name … Lucy Adelaide!

Rosie wrote in Lucy’s birth story:

We settled on a name way more quickly than ever before, which makes me feel really justified in refusing to discuss names before the baby had arrived — Lucy had been on our list for ages but we hadn’t used it because it felt too popular… This time we decided we didn’t care anymore! And Adelaide had also been on our short list (princess, patron of parents of large families) and the flow was perfect so we had a Lucy Adelaide!

I looove both Lucy and Adelaide, I’m so glad Rosie and her hubs just went ahead and chose it! Popularity, pooh! And Lucy Adelaide really does have an exceptionally good flow. Great job, all around! (Although I don’t understand the collection of words “refusing to discuss names before the baby had arrived” … 😂 )

Congratulations to Rosie and her hubby and big sibs John Paul, Cecilia Therese, Elizabeth Anna, Mary Claire, Peter Damian, and Edith Veronica, and happy birthday Baby Lucy!! (Check out her sweet face on Rosie’s Instagram!)
