Anneliese Catherine

It took Matthew and I a while to decide on a name. We knew that her middle name was going to being Catherine since it's a family name, she's a fourth generation Catherine. We had a few names that we liked but our main contender for quite a while actually was Grace Catherine. Grace was my Great-grandmothers name and my mom wanted to name me Grace so the name has a lot of meaning. But I'm not fond of faith based names for my children, like Hope, Faith, Grace, etc. We looked up names with the same or similar meanings for Grace and found Anneliese, which means 'promise of Gods grace' and we knew that was it, we had found her name. 
Anyways, meet Anneliese Catherine, these photos were done when she was nine days old by the same photographer that did my maternity photos.

If this is not enough cuteness for you, click here to see all the photographs from her newborn session.

At a Glance - September

Daddy's teaching her how to use an iPad. I'm hoping she won't get addicted.

Anneliese has started smiling!

Getting ready for uncle Steven's visit at the end of the month by wearing her anchors outfit. Go Navy!

Matthews parents volunteered to watch Anneliese so we could have a date night. We celebrated my birthday which was last month, but since I had literally just given birth and was being released from the hospital on my birthday I was not about to go out. We had a great sunset with our great dinner.

Nuff said.

Seriously, look at my adorable smiling baby.

And for the non-human baby fans, here's Dixie enjoying the baby pillow.
