Meet Our Little One

 

We had our ultrasound today!!!  When you’ve waited this long for another baby, there’s a lot of sheltering of your emotions for the – what if.  It was such a sigh of relief to see this little guy.  He’s real!  We even got to see him yawn today! Meet our son, Gabriel Joachim -

Since we’ve waited soooo long for his arrival, his name was inspired by Saints Joachim and Anna, the parents of the Virgin Mary.  Here’s a free audio version of my absolute favorite children’s version of their life.  This is where the inspiration for our son’s name came from:

  1. Isn’t it amazing how ultrasound has improved? My first baby was an almost indistinguishable blob, and my third, six years later, looked like yours. It’s so exciting (and reassuring) to see them and be able to identify with them before they arrive.
