a spud name.



Our little spud will be named Cora Elm. 

We decided on the name Cora before we were even definitive about when to have a baby. Something about it is so sweet, quite unique, and an old soul name that's simply beautiful. The name dates back to 1850 in my family, but never again resurfaced... until now. We also decided that our children (if that is 1, 2, or 3) will all have earthy but not too hippy middle names. Middle names are not real big in our families, so we thought we could have fun with it and she probably will never even use it. So, elm it is. Strong and beautiful like the tree, our little girl. We kind of like it all lowercase though...a touch more girly. We also had a heck of a time trying to match a name to our last name. We are quite pleased with the result.


As you can see I doodle her name everywhere just like a 5th grader.
 It makes me happy.
She is very much a Cora to us, already.
