We had no idea what Nancy’s middle name was going to be when she was born. Adam and I debated about it for months and then finally it came down to a random name generator that we found via Google in the middle of the night at the hospital. We just kept pushing the button until we found something we both liked: Iris. We have gotten nothing but good feedback on this middle name and even quite a bit of glowing feedback, I would say. Some of our friends even generously bought us a gift certificate to a local Iris Garden. I ordered my iris to plant in the back yard in between our rose bushes this week. I can’t wait for them to come!! The gift certificate came with a beautiful catalog, which I couldn’t let go to waste, so, Clara and I collaged… with added watercolor paint. Those are Clara’s current two favorite art mediums.
Then, when they were dry, we put both collages in envelopes and mailed them to the grandmas. Enjoy!
