Please share all your exciting news about people you know who've had a baby in this thread, be they friends, family or church members. Remember to only share details of names if they are happy with that.

 

It's always so exciting to hear birth news, isn't it? :D

My friend LC had a baby boy by emergency c-section at 5.56pm, weighing 4lb, 4oz at 32 weeks.  LC has lost over 2 litres of blood and baby is having breathing help but so far, so good.  Her waters broke nearly ten weeks ago so she's done brilliantly!

 

 

That's wonderful news, praise God, and I'm sorry it got somewhat lost on the other thread in anticipation of imminent CMs births. But as Fru says, it is always exciting, and important, when a new life comes into the world, especially when it's a little one who has had to fight for life as L's has. Praying for that extra dose of strength and blessing from God which he will need in the coming weeks, and for his Mummy too xxx

A lady I know had a baby this evening at 8.13pm, baby Elijah weighed 8 lbs 5 oz and is perfect. He will be the youngest (last) of the family and will be doted on by his brother and two sisters :wub: .

I love the name too. Much more common here than in the UK as well. I remember the first time i met a baby Elijah in Norwich, I didnt think I'd ever have the courage to use a name like that.

My cousins boys who are now late teens are Elijah and Jonah. I think Jonah in particular is very unusual. I like both names, particularly the shortened form of Elijah, Eli. Not sure whether this Elijah will be shortened, his brother is Malachi. Whereas the girls are non-biblical.

Jonah is becoming quite popular now, as is Josiah. We've got an Elijah at toddlers and his big brother is Felix! I've also heard of brothers who are Ezekiel and Isaiah - bit too much for me!!

ds2 and his nw were chatting baby names while we were away. They were saying they didn't want to go down the biblical names route and thenn said their favourite boys name was Noah :doh: . Mind, babies aren't planned for a few years yet. I don't think grandchildren will be anytime soon.

One name we like is Zechariah but that is more a middle name choice!

I quite like all those, but I like to shorten names and I don't know how I could shorten Huckelberry apart from Huck which I don't like at all. Can't really call a boy Berry either. Caractacus, I like that. There are names I really like and would have loved to have chosen but I would worry a child would be teased so stopped myself. It's ok if you are rich and the child is destined for independent education then they can join all the Apples and Peaches etc. and fit rigtht on in but at the local comp it might not go down so well.
