It's official, baby Stephens #2 has a name!

So, I mentioned a few weeks ago that we weren't quite ready to officially announce baby Stephens name. We loved the name, we were just having a hard time committing. Picking a name that will be with a person their entire life, is a lot of pressure! ;) After a few weeks of saying it out loud and telling Ella Claire her little sister's name, we are officially ready. And, if you want to know the truth, I was having a few things monogrammed for Ella Claire the other day and decided to go ahead and get some bloomers for baby #2. (You know we love our monograms and bows in the south!) After that, there was no turning back! So what's her name?

Gracie Joy Stephens

We don't think we are going to use a double name with this little one, we will probably just call her Gracie. But, already we are sometimes saying Gracie Joy, so who knows?!??! Gracie is not a family name, but as many of you know my moms name is Joy. Her name totally suits her; she is so joyful and positive all of the time. We're already praying that our little Gracie Joy Stephens will be the same way. We desire for all of our children to have the joy of the Lord! 

Okay, well that's all for now. Shortest post ever? Probably so! Hope you have a happy Monday! 


  1. Gracie Joy is lovely name and I agree that it would be better to call her Gracie instead of putting the two together.
    Have a great week.

  2. YAY! I love it! I'm sure that being raised by you guys who seek God's guidance in your parenting, sweet Gracie will be filled with the joy of the Lord!
