Thank you for your prayers!


Grandma loves you, Cordelia! See you soon!


  1. Congratulations! What a sweet little blessing.

  2. Congratulations, Leila and family!

  3. This is the best Leila. Congrats to all of you guys. God is good! Beautiful name.
    (Footnote: those with an irregularly good understanding of the churches place of honor to the saints, especially St. Perpetua, have a right to petition ones children to strongly consider liturgical continuity in the naming of ones grandchildren)

  4. Congratulations! :)
    Fun fact: "Cordelia" is the name Anne of Green Gables wishes she was called. In honor of that, her best friend Diana later names her daughter Anne Cordelia.

  5. Yes, when I saw her name, I immediately thought of Anne's request to Marilla:
    "Will you please call me Cordelia?" she said eagerly.

    "Call you Cordelia? Is that your name?"

    "No-o-o, it's not exactly my name, but I would love to be called Cordelia. It's such a perfectly elegant name."

    Congratulations to the whole family!

  6. She's so beautiful... Congratulations!

  7. Thank you, guys!! And, I love that about Anne! Also, Cordelia is apparently a character in Brideshead Revisted! And Cordelia is the best, most loyal daughter of King Lear in the Shakespeare play! :)

  8. Congratulations Leila and family!!!!

  9. She is absolutely adorable, Leila! May God bless the new bundle, the bundle-makers and grandma, lol!

    Love to all!
