Our Precious Little Man

Yesterday, we were pleased to announce to the world that we are expecting a beautiful baby boy in January. His big sister is very excited, as is the rest of his family. I absolutely love having a daughter, and I am incredibly excited about the idea of having a son. I was most excited to tell my husband the news. He is an amazing father to our daughter and I know he would have welcomed another with just as much love. However, I also know how much he has dreamed of having his little boy. I think we have both been dreaming of this since we found out that God has blessed us with another little miracle.

I look at this picture of him everyday. Sometimes, it is still so hard to believe that next year I will have a daughter and a son. Mostly, we are so grateful and blessed that he is a healthy little baby. His closet is already filling up and his big sister has made sure he has toys to play with in the bath tub. She has assured me that it is very important for him to have rubber duckies.

We finally agreed on the name Barrett for our sweet little man. We will have an "A" and a "B" as Big Momma says. I look at this little outfit and it is so sweet to imagine him wearing it as we finally get to hold him in our arms. Children truly are the greatest blessing God gives us in this life.

"For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted me my petition."
1 Samuel 1:27


I love hearing from you :)
