Hellooo Empty Wallet...


I really REALLy like matching brother sister outfits. The only problem? It is hard to match an older boy with a younger girl without making the boy look to babyish. I match when I can and then I take pictures to remember how cute they are!

HOWEVER...I have very recently discovered how very very easy it is going to be to match a baby sister with a big sister. I mean everything comes in matching or coordinating...now I'll just have to search a little bit harder to find things to coordinate with big brother. Fun!!!

Also we may have a name. Again it is not set in stone but we both really like Ann Elizabeth. Ann is my middle name and my Mom's middle name and Elizabeth is my cousin's name...and we just like both of those names together. We would probably call her "Annie" for short when she is little also. I like the idea of calling her Ann Elizabeth but Daddy says it's too long. Noah does not like this name and Lilly doesn't care if we call her anything at all... so we'll see. Thought on the name? Be honest!!!

You know I'm sold. Annie just sounds like the little sister of a Noah and Lilly : ) As a matter of fact, I'm already calling her Annie and considering having my SIL whip you something embroidered up!

I had already thought of what fun you are going to have dressing Lilly and Annie (?) in matching outfits!! How cute they will be! And trust me, Noah will get over not liking your name choice. Isaac was seriously mad at us when we said we were going with Sophie. But finally, he is used to it. I am sure he will be thrilled too if Noah's new little sister's name is Annie.
Oh and love Noah and Lilly's outfits in the picture!

I love the name!! And I love matching my girls outfits, although Rachel thinks she is getting too old for that now :( I like Annie for short, but I LOVE the idea of Anne Elizabeth for when she is a little older. I will probably be calling you soon for an appointment for some family pics, we are long overdue.

I love the name:) It is going to be really easy to do matching with Lilly and Annie...Can't wait to meet Annie!

Now I may be partial for some reason but I love the name!! It could be because I am the Elizabeth that she would be named after. Seriously though I think it is adorable and Annie and Lilly is so cute together!! I think that the matching stuff will be great for the girls and since Noah is a big boy that maybe he can just be a cool big brother no matter how he dresses! Love you!

Of course we love it! Anna Kate and Ann Elizabeth will be best buddies!

I love love the name. And I am like Lesley, I think it fits with Noah and Lilly....But my opinion, spell it Anny to match Lilly....just a thought.

I love it...I'm going to go ahead and believe the Ann is after me too, okay? :-) Annie is precious and I can't wait to meet her. And, I LOVE matching outfits!

Brother sister combos are a little more challenging. Especially a toddler and a tiny baby. I too LOVE Annie. I used to baby sit a two girls, Alli and Annie (short for Allison and Anna Leigh)

I LOVE the pictures of the kids! I will get an order together once I look at what each room in the house needs! :-)

Children are far off in the distance for us, but we have thought about names! We chose James Aayden for our boy. That one is set in stone. James for my Daddy and Aayden just cause we like it. For a while we thought Gracie Anne (with an E cause I'm a huge Anne of Green Gables finatic) but then we decided Gracie wasn't the right name for Aayden's sister. So we picked Aylah, but Anne doesn't really go with Aylah, it does but not so well....IDK. Right now we are settled on Aylah Lynn, but IDK if the Lynn will stick in the delivery room when the time comes lol! I like Annie as a name. I'm like Lesley, Noah, Lilly, Annie, it's the logical next name lol. I love the names! Ann Elizabeth Parsley.....very dignified! Love it!
