PINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINHe is here.  He is finally here!  Our sweet baby boy, Israel Rhodes, joined us on this side October 12, 2015 at 2:37am – healthy, happy and ready to take on the world.  His calm countenance and easy going attributes have helped make the transition (for all of us) quite smooth sailing and I couldn’t be more in love.  With the smoothest cheeks for kissing, the tiniest of cries and gurgles, and a most beautiful face for staring at … I’m a goner for sure!

Again, in choosing a name, we were looking not only for a name we liked the sound of but also a name that would carry significant meaning.  As shared here about overcoming some fears during his pregnancy, we really felt strongly that our little baby would carry the name/purpose of bringing light, revelation wherever he would go and would be a conqueror of all that is in his path.  We thought his names suited that quite well …

ISRAEL: he who prevails with God

RHODES: a clearing in the woods

Israel, you don’t know how happy we are that you are now starting your life on the “outside”.  Your papa, big brothers, and me could not be more over-joyed as we think of the purpose and life you will bring to this world.  We love you so much already.

      sarah nadine - thanks so much, Calista! well, you could always come visit … it’d be nice to meet your posse as well ☺️ at first, i was worried that the swaddle blanket would look to feminine. but after our first times using it with Hunter, i didn’t even think twice about it because i liked it too much for it to matter if it was more feminine or masculine! i actually really wish that they would make an adult sized one for my bed … !! xoReplyCancel
