The naming

So how did Alexandra get her name?

I wrote down the names of my favorite ten or so, with every possible nickname I could find or think of, along with our last name. While we were in the hospital, being induced (a story for another day) I gave the notebook to my DH and said "Here. Here are the best names." After reading through all of them, he said "I like Alexandra and Elizabeth best."

"I like both of them too. Let's wait and see what happens when she's born."

That moment came at 7:15 AM on 7/18. Oh. Remind me to tell you about epidurals. Anyway, she came, the doctor said "It's a girl! What's her name?"

I looked at my husband.

"Alexandra Noel" he said.
