Welcome Finley Ernest!

Finley Ernest was born October 17th, 2009 at 11:27am, at home, in our bed, with a midwife attending.
Total labor was 5 hours. (I plan to post a full birth story soon.)

The meaning behind his name:
Finley is Gaelic and means "Fair Warrior or Fair Hero."
(We all liked it because it is unique, we'll call him Fin for short, and it was a given that he would be "fair" regarding physical features.)
It was important for us to include a family name, and we knew that the person we wanted to name our child after was David's Mom, or "Grahamcracker", Ernestine. Ernestine was named after her father Ernest.
Ernest is German and means "serious, determined."
We couldn't be more blessed and thankful for this perfect little boy...


  1. I love it !!!!

    Love his names and the meanings ... especially Ernest being after his Grahamcracker !! That is so special. Makes me get all teary !!

  2. I am not sure how I missed those pictures on Facebook before I commented on the post below, since I was checking every day! :) But was excited to see them. He is so handsome and sweet. I am very happy for all of you!!

  3. Congratulations to you and your whole family! What a perfect little blessing! :-) Can't wait for more pictures and to hear some 'big sister' stories :-)
