Ultrasound Results

We are the proud parents of a healthy, little baby made of sugar and spice and all things nice.


Can you see her little hand scratching the right side of her head? We thought it was so cute.

Yes, we’re having a GIRL! I can’t wait to sew her a little dress made from this gorgeous fabric.

 

Her name will be Elizabeth Conant Haigh.

Elizabeth was the middle name of my maternal grandmother. Truth be told, it is also the name of my favorite queen of England: Elizabeth I. Plus there are so many fun nicknames that one can come up with, such as Liz, Beth, Elly or Ella.

The name Conant was once a last name that can be traced back to the 1600s. Roger Conant arrived in Massachusetts on presumably the Ann ship and later founded the town Salem. When the last name was about to die out, a tradition was born that the father would pass the name down to his firstborn son in the form of a middle name who would then pass it down to his firstborn son. The tradition almost died during my generation since it was just my sister and I. I am resurrecting the tradition, but eliminating the male dominance. Henceforth, the middle name shall be passed down to the firstborn child.
