We wanted to give baby girl #2 a special name as well that carried significant meaning for us. After much thought and some input from the Lord, we chose Elizabeth Rose (Ella for short) for her. Elizabeth means God is bountiful, abundantly bestowing His promise of favor and goodness on us. Clint and I have definitely experienced God's promises of favor and goodness in our lives. Elizabeth also happens to be my middle name which allows me to have a unique connection with her. We chose Rose for her middle name because it means resembling the beauty of the meaningful flower. Since we were married in a rose garden, this flower and the name reminds us of the most beautiful expression of our love for each other when we exchanged our marriage vows. I know it sounds sappy, but pregnant women are known to be a bit weepy and sappy. We can not wait to meet Elizabeth Rose!

Then, Clint explained the truth, but also gave her some flower seeds to plant and told her that the rocks in the soil would help her seeds to grow into flowers and he saved the day! Yeah Clint-y!
