Baby Name

2nd post for the day, I know, but wanted to share that we decided to share baby Phillips' name. I like the idea of people being able to pray for her specifically by name, and since her first week of birth will be so crazy, the idea of "surprising" everyone wasn't nearly so appealing.

So, baby is Annabelle Lillian Faith Phillips

Anna means Grace, and I'm praying she's filled with God's wonderful grace!
Belle means beautiful, she will be beautiful both inside and out!
Lillian is my grandmother's middle name, and comes from Lilly, which symbolizes innocence and purity.
Faith is obvious. :-) We have faith that Jesus knows what is best for our baby Annabelle!

Oh, and her nickname, for those who use it, will be Belle. I, however, will call my lil' love Annabelle.
