With Elias, we knew his full-name before my 20-week gender ultrasound.
But this time around things have been different.
We (mostly me) have grappled with spelling, middle names, monograms, etc.
But finally, we have a name!
Adeline Olive Turner
You might remember that we were originally going to spell Adeline, A-D-E-L-Y-N-E, just like my great-grandmother did. But after much consideration, we decided to spell it the traditional way because so many people thought it was AdeLYNN, not AdeLINE. Of course, the name is still a tribute to my dear great-grandmother, who was a gift of a woman. She loved to sew and garden and was strong and independent. Adeline means noble.
Olive is for Matthew’s Mammom, Olive Abigail King. If you have read any of his books, you know she was his biggest spiritual mentor. She was a Godly woman who loved fiercely. She also journaled every day of her life about mostly her day-to-day activities – and we have many of them! I think she would have been a fan of Project Life. Olive means kind one and peace.
I can’t believe our sweet Adeline will be here in less than three months.Heart banners found here.
