We had our beautiful baby boy about a month ago- We are so in love.
We ended up naming him Francis Gregory, which surprised me!
My husband had been suggesting this throughout our pregnancy, but I had a few hang-ups with it, so it wasn’t really a front runner for me. In the last few weeks I decided to stop being so bossy and consider some of his suggestions, as I could tell he wasn’t sold on our top pick. We still didn’t have Francis as our #1 pick going into labour. When he popped out I had to bite my tongue to prevent calling him Francis (since SO and I hadn’t talked about it), and it just felt right. We “tried it out” on his second day, and ran it past some of our family, and at the end of the day, it stuck! We’ve had TONS of positive comments on his name (even from our non-Catholic friends ), which I wasn’t necessarily expecting.
He is an adorable baby and we feel extra blessed that he is ours.
