We have an Olivia (20 mo old) and little Master HB will be named Elliott.

My DIL (darllng) wanted it to begin with an E. We grandparents were asked for our ideas, out of courtesy I'm sure, but none of our ideas were picked...lol. It was sweet of them to ask so we felt included.

Like both the names. I hope you and/or her parents are reading your granddaughter stories from the "Olivia" books. They are wonderful!!

Congratulations, Jan! I can't wait to see pics!

With 1st and only, I started contractions on a Wednesday but didn't go into active labor until Sunday night. From there it was another 15 hours until dd graced us with her presence. No pain meds, all natural; boy, was that a long few days and 15 hours (for DH and me)!

Great names, HB!!!! That's great that your input was at least asked for------my poor cousin ended up with "Cecelia Ophelia" and noone was consulted from what I understand. And I thought that I hated Deborah Ann which was given to 3 billion girls after Debbie Reynolds hit the screen in the fifties-----I have a 2nd cousin with both those names as well as my cousin's 3rd wife--his first wife was a Deborah Ann as well. So I really like the names Elliott and Olivia. Ha!!!!!!!

uh oh... lol, they say he looks exactly like my oldest son. All Scandanavians look alike with that beautiful blond hair and blue eyes.

Thank you all so much for sharing my joy!
