I, stupidly, just opened a story on Yahoo! about the crazy celebrity baby names of 2010. The story starts out with all of the wacky baby names that celebrities come up with. Mentioning names like Apple and Pilot Inspektor. Then they rank the more classic choices in celebrity baby names and there it is, ranking in at #2 for favorite baby names of 2010 is Harper Grace, the daughter of Neil Patrick Harris (AKA Doogie Houser) and his partner, David Burtka. They welcomed twins (a boy and a girl) this fall via surrogate. HUMPH! Doogie & Co. stole our name. I guess I can't blame them since it is a pretty darn good name. But seriously, couldn't they have stolen someone else's name??
I have been happily married to my best friend and soul mate for 4 years. 2010 was going to be our year, we were FINALLY pregnant with our first child and we were over the moon! On June 25, 2010 our world came crashing down as we had to say goodbye to our sweet angel, Harper Grace. I have never known such love and pain as I have since that life changing day. On August 28th of this year, we welcomed Harper's little sister, Norah Grace. The meaning of Norah is "the shining light" as she is our bright light along our journey through grief, healing and hope.
