Every morning Charlie asks me: “Is his name Baker yet?”
And every morning I tell her: “Not yet, they are still working on all of his important paperwork.”
But today, when she asks, we’ll get to tell her “YES. His name is Baker now!”
We’re happy to finally share his precious face with you all.
Our sweet, silly, giggly William Levi Baker.
Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.
Children born to a young man
are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!
We give God thanks for every single day with you. You are SO loved. Not only by God and hundreds of family and friends, but TWO mommies and TWO daddies. God’s protective hand has been covering you since before you even drew your first breath. He has big plans for you, little Peep. You are an arrow, shaped and formed with a specific plan already designed for your amazing life. As much as I want to hold you tight and never let go, I know we have been given a special task. Our task, as your parents, is not for us to ‘collect you’ in our quiver, but for us to train you to travel a straight path when you are older. A path that includes wisdom, kindness, generosity, genuine love for others, and love for God.
