How my last child got her name...

A couple of weeks ago, I announced that I would be revealing bits and pieces about me and my story over this coming year because that is what I have my clients share with me. <3 If you want to be one of the first to read these, head over to my Facebook or Instagram and stayed tuned every Friday morning!

I have three beautiful daughters. They all have unique names. 

My oldest daughter is Elise (means consecrated to God) Annalea (combo of her two grandma's middle names).

My middle daughter is Annistyn (it means resurrection) Nicole (my middle name)

This is my third, and last beautiful daughter is Audrey Chase. I didn't want her to be my last. I come from a big family and wanted a big family. But I have truly terrible pregnancies. I struggle from Hyperemesis Gravidarum (as well as a number of other ailments 🤣) and it gets worse and worse each time. I've had 5 pregnancies and 3 births. 2 babies were lost, something I know many of you have suffered also. Knowing that Audrey Chase would be my last... we decided to name her after my dad Audie --> except the feminine version obviously 🥰 and then Chase (my husbands name). My dad was named after his dad who died of a massive heart attack while his mom was pregnant with him. My dad grew up fatherless but that didn't make him any less fit to be a father to us. In fact, it was just the opposite. Because of his upbringing, he was the best dad EVER. And the PERFECT person for my last little girl to be named after. <3
