  7. Ivy is a BEAUTIFUL name!
    And yay! GROVER! I love him.

  8. Oh how beautiful!! I thought you weren't going to share her name? Well, I'm glad you did :)

    You definitely sound and 'act' differently than I imagined. It's so hard to know what people are like just from reading and seeing pictures!

    Great little video! Ivy will sure be excited when she's old enough to know what Sesame Street is.

  17. OMG - I wouldn't have known it had other people not mentioned it in comments because Faith screwed up my sound!!!

    This is a weird comment, but Ivy has always been on the top of my name list because of how it goes with my own name. I love that you have this video as a keepsake!

    It was so wonderful to see you - you were more precious than online, and I would have gone nuts had we not been in Sesame Street with video filming.

    xoxo

  20. I love the name Ivy (or Ivey?)! And I love that interview. She will absolutely love watching it in a few years, and I'm sure your boys loved Grover saying hello to them.

    I'm pretty jealous that you got to hang out with Grover!;)

  27. Beautiful name!

    Your children are sure to treasure the video and even more so if they are fans of Sesame Street.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love it! My dad wanted to name me Ivy. ;) I thought about Ivy and Fern for girls but dh wasn't so thrilled with them.

    And you're famous!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ivy is the perfect name! That was my grandmother's name (spelled Ivey) so I have always loved it. What an adorable interview. I'm sure she'll get a kick out of watching that in a couple of years! (I'd be taking it to kindergarten show & tell!)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love Ivy!! Very beautiful!! What a special video, not only for your little girl when she's older, but for the boys too! How fun Steph!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love this video. Ariel just watched it and it was so fun for her to put your face, your belly and the name Ivy together. My kids loved watching that.

    Could you see the guy making grover's voice while grover talked to you. Please tell me how it worked.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ivy is a beautiful name. What a fun video!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Absolutely LOVE the name! It's simple, yet dignified, and you really don't hear it very often.

    What a precious keepsake for your kids! I hope they treasure that video for years to come!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You officially rule!!!

    You know, now that I think about it, Ivy is kind a neat name. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is SO COOL that you got to meet Grover!!! How special! That alone would have been worth going to BlogHer!

    I just adore the name "Ivy," In fact, I use the name "Ivy" when I'm talking about one of my real-life friends on my blog, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is so great! Did the boys love it???

    ReplyDelete
  37. Too cool! I thought Joey was going to jump into the computer screen when he was just watching it with me! He loves Sesame Street!

    I love the name Ivy!

    ReplyDelete
  38. It made me cry I loved it so much. When Ivy is older she will have this awesome video of when Grover was talking to her.

    I hope the boys loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love Ivy!!!! And that was SOO cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I bet your boys loved Grover talking to them!

    And I have to say the name is amazing. So pretty and unique...love it!

    We decided to honor my Granny by giving our daughter (IF it's a girl) her name, Violet...instead of that being her middle name.

    You're so cute too. tee hee

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh Steph!! That is the coolest ever! I love Grover-he and Earnie were always my favs! AND the name Ivy is so lovely; she is a true flower child with that name. I love it!

  56. I love that you got to meet Grover. He's the coolest muppet! I also have to admit that I feel super extra special and important for having already known Ivy's pretty name. I can't help myself. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Is it sad that I got teary when I heard your baby girl's name out loud? Is it even sadder that I full out cried when Grover was talking to your boys? I may be a wee bit emotional today :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh my lord that is SO CUTE!! I love Grover!!! AND now we know it is...IVY!! I love it :) Yay yay yay!

    That. Was. Awesome.

    I want to meet Grover!

    Funny thing: the kids came running into the room when they heard Grover's voice. They were transfixed. When I reminded them they KNOW you and have eaten lunch with you and that Joel spit hot dog into your hand, they were SOOO impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Awww... I love this!! Grover is too cool!! Ivy is a GREAT name!! And the boys must just go crazy over this video!! Absolutely PRECIOUS!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. So did you ever think you'd get to meet and talk to Grover? That is so fun! The name Ivy is beautiful - excellent choice.

    ReplyDelete
  62. YAY! I LOVE Ivy!! Great name! I bet it'll match her personality wonderfully.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ivy is an avsolutely beautiful name! :)

    My little guy is loving this video, since he just met Grover and Cookie Monster on Tuesday. They're old friends of his now, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Uh oh, you spilled the beans! I love it! Such a beautiful name.
    I love Grover. That was so awesome! One of my favorite books growing up was "The Monster at the End of This Book." Grover has a special place in my heart. I also love to go to Sesame Place in PA (near where I grew up), and haven't gotten to go in a number of years. That video was so fun, and I'm sure your boys are loving it.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love the name Ivy! With the flower child t-shirt on that is so perfect!

    Grover and Abby were such a blast! Emma and I did a video with Abby.

    Yeah for Valpo by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Grover touched your belly? I am so jealous.
    One of my oldest, dearest friends named her daughter Ivy so of course I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  85. That my niece's name. I LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  86. TOO FREAKING CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And such a great keepsake.
    So, Valpo, eh? I have a good friend, Charity, who lives in Valpo.
    I met here when I spent a year at Huntington College in, well, Huntington, IN. :o)
    Which, btw, I don't think I am a fan of Indi, but that's just me.
    Okay, enough rambling. I am jealous that you have such a cute video with Grover. And as soon as he started talking, my kiddos and the two others I am watching at the moment, crowded around to see...so you were very popular..or maybe it was Grover. =-)
    Oh, and Ivy is a gorgeous name!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. this is my most favorite EVER.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh Steph, that was the weekend we met! And I talked to Grover too. What fun memories!
