Yesterday (August, 26, 2010) was the BIG DAY!! We found out that our third (and last) baby is aGIRL! We are just thrilled! Her name will be Mary Flynn Yates.  
Mary, who is Rob's paternal grandmother, is such a special lady and so very dear to both of us. Rob told her we would like to name our baby girl after her, and in Mary Yates fashion said, "Well, it's about time after all these grandchildren and would have thought there would have been a Mary Catherine, or Mary something by now!!" Rob said, "You finally got one!" We hope that our Mary has all the spunk, sweetness, and loving spirit that this Mary does, as well as her strong faith!
Flynn, who was my maternal grandmother, was one of my best friends. Not only was she a grandmother,she was such a good person who was loved by everyone. She served the Lord every day of her life (and always make sure I put Him first in everything) and was an extremely talented pianist who played the piano in her church for over 60 years. She was a wonderful cook, bridge player, and loved to travel.
Both of these women are so special to Rob and me and both hold many of the same values, beliefs, and interests. Had they lived in the same town, I know they would have been great friends. Our hope is that this little girl has all these characteristics and then some! I can't think of two better people to be named after...what a blessed little one!?!?!

And one more thing...this may not be my first sewing project for this little sister, but it is definitely on the list. I found these embroidery alphabet patterns on the Etsy store Penguin and Fish!  I am going to change all these colors to pinks, turquoise, oranges, and yellows!!!
