her name.

April 07, 2012


Psalms 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

It is an old English use of the word "apple" and does not refer to the fruit we call the "apple" today. It refers to the center of the pupil of the eye. 
When you make something the "apple of your eye", it means to watch over it and protect and cherish it.


skirt: forever 21
tshirt: thrifted

  2. Apple is the name of one of my very best childhood friends =) What a beautiful name that has such a sweet background.

    FYI, my friend Apple is a great person. She's really smart, kind, works as a nurse, and is so pretty. I know your daughter will carry those same qualities.

  7. I know I already knew the name, but seeing it with the scriptures makes it so real. Sedric and I went shopping right after I got your text, and we picked out something sweet for Miss Apple. Expect it soon...it needs some handmade touches first though. :) Love you! Love her! Love this post!

  16. I knew it! For some reason, when you said you were going to tell us her name, I immediately thought of Gwyneth Paltrow and said "Apple" in my head. I was hoping!! It's so lovely, and it's just perfect.

    Congrats again little mama! xo

  73. Wonderfully lovely name & the meaning is beautiful! It certainly captures how we feel about our children...cherished, protected, loved, delightful! And, I may be biased, but Lucy is precious as the middle name! (Our youngest is Lucy.)
    The photos are beautiful & I especially love the old school Pink Floyd tee!
    May God bless your family!
