GIRL!!!! We are so very excited to announce that we are having a girl! Yesterday was the big day and she seems so sweet. She was very cooperative and sucked her thumb the majority of the time. Not a big mover at this point, which for us is good...have you seen our toddler lately!
Keatyn was very excited and loved the pictures. We now have to convince her that we don't need to name her Dryver. This whole concept for a two year old is tough. I think she thinks I'm just getting fat!
Stephen and I both are so excited about the joy that will come with having a set of sisters living under our roof! I think about my time with my sister and how special those moments were and still are. She is my best friend and I pray that for our two girls.
Names...oh what's in a name...there is quite a story behind our girl name.
I had a Mama Nita (great grandmother) who meant the world to both me and Stephen. She was one of the most amazing women that I had ever met. She helped raise my mom and aunt and they are both amazing women, so if you knowthem, you know how great Mama Nita was. Her birthday was on baby girl Bills' C-section date...April 16th. I don't have a big sentimental bone in my body, but this opportunity could not be passed up. We decided that we would (if it was a girl) name her Addilyn (no middle name yet). We are almost 100% sure that this is what her name will be. My grandmother's name was Addie and I didn't feel like I could pass up the opportunity to use this name. If our daughter can be half of the woman that Mama Nita was, then we and many others will be blessed beyond belief by her.
My great grandmother passed away and I hope that Addilyn Bills can be the legacy that she left behind. I truly feel that this whole situation is purpose filled and that Mama Nita is very proud!
