    Adele Matilda

    After a week in the hospital, during which it was determined I had atypical preeclampsia. Our daughter Adele Matilda made her entrance into the world 8 weeks early on February 8th, just 3 days before her big brother Malcolm Alexander's birthday. I think it fitting that her name means "Noble Battle-mighty." She's our IVF rainbow baby and a strong little fighter, holding her own in the NICU. I fell in love with the name Adele a long time ago thanks to my love of literature and genealogy, and my husband and I both agreed that it felt right for our daughter. Matilda was my great-grandmother's middle name. It holds special significance to me, because it reminds me of my beloved grandmother who loved to tell the story of how she and her sister nicknamed their mother "Tillie" when they discovered her middle name was Matilda.
