I don’t normally keep up with these instagram holidays- but I cant miss an opportunity to celebrate this girl.
I had always dreamed of having a baby girl named Lucille Louise (after my great grandmothers) and calling her “Lulu”. However, when we found out we were pregnant with a girl, Pete had a strong aversion to the name, and used all of his vetoes on MY DREAM. 😩 Eventually we settled on “Grace” for no real reason other than neither of us were offended by it.
As it turns out, if ever a name suited a human, it is Grace. This girl is both a tiny living/breathing manifestation of courtesy & goodwill, and a gift we don’t deserve- though all the same I won’t stop myself from bragging that she’s mine.
Happy Daughters Day to the women of the future- you are kind, smart, and important and I hope we are building a 🌎 that deserves you.
