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)

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.

We are all so grateful she is here safe and sound.
