What's in a name?

After much contemplation, Matt and I reached an agreement on BabyBoy's name. His given name will be...

We'll call him by his middle name, Abel. It was a difficult decision, but I love the meaning of his name. Matthew, after his daddy, and meaning "Gift of God." Abel means "breath" and Abel was the first person in the Bible to please God after Adam and Eve fell out of His favor.

We can't wait to meet this little blessing in April!

I got glory bumps when I read the meaning of our youngest nephew's name. (They were glory bumps and not chill bumps even though it is FREEZING!)
Love you guys!
Praying Eli will feel better tomorrow!
