Birthday Photos

No, these photos are not from Waverly’s birthday, as we have until July to prepare for that.
And, by the way, “prepare” for her first birthday is obviously more than an understatement.  I will try to keep my desire to have a festive, themed entire day-long extravaganza (halfway) to a minimum.  But it’s going to be hard.  Anyone who knows me could tell you that.
Thesse pictures, however, were taken for another reason … and one reason only.  And that was to wish Waverly’s Papa G a Happy, Happy Birthday!  Waverly Maye is the first grandchild on my side of the family, so needless to say, pictures of her are the perfect way to start my dad’s celebatory day.  And even though we clearly do not have a lack of those, I have a hunch that a few more will bring a smile to my dad’s face.


I get asked a lot about how we decided on Waverly Maye’s name. 
Honestly, we didn’t decide on her first name until the final moments in the delivery room.   
We went in with two names that we both liked, but each liked (a different one) a little more than the other.  Needless to say, after 48 hours in the hospital before meeting our baby girl, her name was Waverly … the one I preferred. 🙂
Her middle name, however, was finalized as soon as we found out we were having a girl.  Maye was my maternal grandmother’s middle name, and so … Waverly Maye is named after her, in honor of my dad.  We love you more than you know, Papa G. Happy Birthday 🙂
