It's Leisl Meera Petersen.
We had the list narrowed down to several options and none of them were on the list we brought to the hospital. They were all very beautiful, elegant, feminine and rather calm sounding names - almost meek. I don't know if this is an indicator of your personality but I was surprised at how elegant they all sounded. Finally we decided on this name. I like that it is uncommon, but simple and beautiful.You are such a good baby. You have settled into a bit of a routine already and went back to work with Mom on your third morning on earth. You are so patient with everyone that wants to hold you and the hoards of people that came through the house in your first week. You also made two trips to St. George during your first week and went to church on day 7. Busy girl.
You have very big hands and feet - we tease that they are 'man hands' but really they are very feminine and you always hold them so beautifully - like this pose under your chin, which we didn't pose but you did yourself and we had to capture. I love the cleft in your chin and am amazed at how your hairs are either black or white, which makes your fluff look almost gray sometimes. You have a lot of hair on your ears too.
You had to be on the bili lights for the first couple days which we both hated. I was very grumpy that I couldn't hold you and that they had to keep poking you to test your blood, but by day 4 your levels had started coming down and we could get you off the lights. You eat like a champ and so far (cross our fingers) are not a spitty baby which is nice for Mom. We all absolutely adore you already and we're so thankful Heavenly Father sent you to us.
