Last week I revealed baby 2#’s gender here: (Our Gender Reveal Story) and now I am excited to share with you her name! Like my son’s name – Adam, I have had the name Elizabeth in my head since I was a little girl. I was lucky that my husband also loved the name and that is what we had picked out if we ever had little girl.
Elizabeth (Hebrew) meaning: “God is my Oath.”
The middle name however, was a little bit harder. I had had the name “Rose” picked out ever since I was a little girl, but a few years ago I had heard the name “Kaylin” on a tv show (of all places) and the name stuck with me. It was different, it was beautiful, and I wanted to use it! I didn’t want to give up on the name “Rose” so I tried to convince my husband that having two middle names was a great idea!
He was not convinced. If I had my way, it would have been Elizabeth Kaylin Rose, but my husband did not want our baby to have two middle names so I had to pick one. Eventually we both agreed that we liked “Kaylin” best. I found a spelling of it that I liked and we changed our decision the day before we found out it was a girl!
Kaylin (Gaelic) meaning “Slender and Fair”
We are very happy with the names we picked out and still so excited that we are having a girl. If it had been a boy the name would have been “William Paul.” William because we loved the name and Paul after my father-in-law.
This next part I am a little nervous to talk about because there is a lot of controversy regarding birth methods and such. There were a lot of hurtful things said after my son was born – on my blog and on my Facebook and I have decided that because of that and because so many people have so many opinions that I am going to be much more private with what I share about Elizabeth’s birth and the methods we are going to be using.
I know many people may not agree, but the decisions that were made were made through much prayer, contemplation, and many chats with doctors about what was best for everyone involved. With that being said, due to the complications I had with my son’s birth which you can read about below, Elizabeth will be born by c-section.
I still have some issues stemming from my son’s rough birth and it was decided after he was born that the next baby would be birthed by c-section per doctor’s orders. I did much research over the past 3 years and weighed in my health issues and such and talked to my husband and we both felt it would be best to follow the doctor. We trust her and know she is making the best decision after everything I went through before.

That being said, my due date is November 22nd, but I have heard that they will take her out before then. I have not been given a date yet, but I hope I receive one soon because I would love to be able to start counting down to her birth! We are excited for her arrival and cannot wait to see what God has planned for her life!
