I’m a mommy…again!

Good morning!

I just wanted to check in to let you know that our beautiful baby girl Addison “Addie” Nicole Turner was born yesterday at 3:07 pm.

Addison

We chose the name Addison just because we love it.  However, her middle name has a very special meaning, as it is a tribute to my beautiful cousin Danielle Nicole who unexpectedly passed away almost two years ago.  I’m looking forward to telling Addie just how special her middle name is one day.

It might even help her forgive us for the fact that her initials spell out the word “ANT”.  Guess we’ll have to avoid monogramming until she gets married!

Addison hasn’t met her brother yet, but I’m really eager to see what Michael thinks of her.  I just know that he’ll be the best big brother ever.

I’ll do a formal birth story post in a few days, but for now, you can just check out all of my photos on Instagram and Twitter.  This mommy cannot seem to put down the camera.

Have a great day!

    Thank you! :)

  9. Traditionally, I think monograms for girls have the last name initial in the middle, so if you do that it would be ATN (the T would be larger than the A and N) so don’t worry :)

    Congratulations!

    I actually JUST learned that there is apparently a male way to monogram and a female way. I had no clue! So excited because I do love me some monograms. :)

  10. Congratulations!!!! What a beautiful name and you look so GORGEOUS!! :-)

  11. Congratulations! I’m so happy for you! Addison is a gorgeous name and fits so well with Michael’s. The story behind her middle name is so touching. And about her initials- I wouldn’t worry. I’m sure she’ll love how unique they are. My sister’s initials are IP, so I’ve heard worse. ;)

  12. Congraaaaats!! You look so amazing and what a cutie!! That’s funny you mentioned about her initials! She’s better off than Nia. We loved the name, but I don’t think it exactly flows with our last name, unless you throw her middle name in there to break it up! haha

  13. Congrats! She’s such a cutie and you look gorgeous!!

  14. congratulations!! she’s gorgeous, hoping for a quick recovery for you!

  15. Congratulations! Pretty baby

  16. Aw, she’s gorgeous! What a cute little button. Congratulations!

  17. Congrats – she is beautiful like her momma!! And, you look amazing! Are you sure you delivered her or was it a stork?! Haha! Enjoy every moment!!
