Welcome Baby Arianne!
Name: Arianne Elisabeth
Weight: 7.04 lbs
Length: 18 inches
Born via c-section at Hanh Phuc Hospital.
Her first name, Arianne, is French and means “most holy.” D and I wanted a name that sounded nice in both English & Portuguese. The Portuguese version is Ariana.
The middle name, Elisabeth, we picked because we like the flow of it in both languages and because Elisabeth, mother of John the Baptist, is a strong and faithful woman in the Bible. The name Elisabeth comes from Hebrew and means “God is my oath.”
More baby photos and birth story to follow. I am not actually blogging from the recovery room; everything on this post (except the birth details) was typed up a week ago. Right after I finished prepping our tax documents, re-organizing the bedroom wardrobe to fit baby stuff, and color coding my password spreadsheet. “Prep baby announcement blog post” – check! : )
