The baby is also very healthy! No problems whatsoever! Growing as a little 20 week on in utero baby should be doing.
Let’s see…anything else…hmmm…oh yeah, I guess everyone wants to know whether the baby is a boy or girl…well…it’s a girl!
Lots to praise God for: a healthy baby and a little girl. Did I get a little emotional when the sonographer announced it? Oh you bet I did. We were able to tell it was a girl, but know that there is still a small chance that something else could have been hiding (but from the u/s picture, I doubt it).
Her name is Ceili Rain Mabry. Ceili (pronunced Kaylee) is celtic for “celebration/party”. Rain is the stuff that falls down. So our translation for Ceili Rain is a celebration coming down from heaven (since, ya know, rain falls from the sky). I must confess that is not original and is the name of a Celtic Christian group but we felt it was beautiful and with such a sweet meaning it fits. We’ve waited for our sweet girl blessing to come down from God for a little over four years (since we decided on the name). Her middle name, Mabry, means “joyous.” She is already a joy to us (well, with the exception of Ace…he’s still trying to adjust to the idea and when Zoe told him he said, “ughhh, man!”). Oh, and she will be called Ceili Rain for anyone wondering. We call ’em what we name them (but sometimes add and embellish it for endearing terms).
Thanks for the prayers for a healthy baby and for our little girl! She is growing and moving all over the place!
