And Baby Makes Eight

Another sweet angel has come to join our family.  Doesn't
she look like she has a smile on her face meeting her 
family for the first time?  

Meet Baby Jacquelyn.  Her three year old brother
has been calling her by that name since he found out
she was a girl.  He even argued with his brother
and sister when they liked other names.  
He would say things to mama like, "Did Baby Jacquelyn
sleep well last night?" (while she was still in mama's tummy),
"Is Baby Jacquelyn coming today?", "How's Baby Jacquelyn
doing?", etc.  He pronounces it in two syllables like

I love my real name of Jacqueline
but have almost always
been called Jackie (which I don't love so much) so when
I started blogging I chose to go by my real name of 
Jacqueline.  Joni (my sister at Red Couch Recipes)
thought that was so funny that I would choose to
go by my real name.  I often tell friends I would
prefer to have them call me by Jacqueline.  Now
we have a real Jacquelyn and I hope no one ever
calls her Jackie.

Of course Grandma LOVES her name
and I also like the slight change in spelling

This is grandbaby number eight.  We feel so blessed.

This is the dress she came home in and her big
"Sissy" is so happy to finally have a sister.
We are all so grateful she is here safe and sound.

I will be sharing these girly shots on

Congratulations on your little bundle of love! She is beautiful.

Alycia Nichols said...

I ALWAYS call you Jacqueline, Jacqueline!!! Unless someone specifically invites me to refer to them by a nickname, I go with the proper name. As I recall, Elizabeth Taylor hated being referred to as "Liz" and would call people out on it! I never had a nickname. One of my friends tried shortening my name to Al, but it just didn't go over very well. Hallelujah!!! Congratulations on Grand #8!!!

She's a little sweetie Jacqueline, congratulations Grandma on another grandchild and one named after you.
Most of us do have shorter versions of our name and like you I used mine for years but have always liked my full name too.

Jacqueline, You have now caught up with me:) She is a real beauty and how special that she shares your name! My first grandchild has my name as her middle name, Suzanne, which is my given name. I have always been, Sue, but when I went to college I tried to go by Suzanne:) Congratulations!!! That is so sweet that your grandson was set on calling her by Jacquelyn:)
